This is the first year that I’ve had a school-aged child, but we have accessed nursery for the past 5 years, so we are no strangers to giving gifts to teachers or care-givers! Over the years we have noticed what other people give to at the end of term, and I asked a few teacher friends which gifts they really want.
All of my teacher friends agreed that their favourite gift at the end of the school year is a heartfelt message in a homemade card. Set your child up with crayons, felt tips, and crafting materials and see what they come up with by themselves. Some ideas for less than freestyle cards are here on my Pinterest board.
Another great suggestion is a personalised canvas bag to carry marking home. Pick one of these fab bags from The Clever Baggers and grab some fabric pens here from Amazon to let your child go wild for a memorable give their teacher can use every day.
I have heard that teachers do a fair bit of writing… Pens, stickers, and funky post-it notes are all welcome gifts for teachers at the end of term. Add the homemade card and you’re onto a winner!
