It’s nearly the end of term and there are many weary teachers eager to hear the last school bell of the term before they head off into the long stretch of summer holidays. Waiting to be freed from homework and marking, putting on plasters and glad to reclaim their quiet voice again. And I’m so very grateful for them.
At the end of the term I’m dragging barely sun-creamed children through the school gates on my last legs with undried hair, odd earrings, just after the bell has rung. I can hardly remember what day of the week it is and I’m confusing the kids with calls of “have you filled your shoes and put on your water bottle? Have you finished your PE kit and put your homework in the wash?”
There were days I dreamed of making individually iced, named biscuits wrapped in homemade gift boxes in order to show my huge appreciation for someone else who was willing to teach, who am I kidding? – just even look after my children for a few hours each day. And yes, three children in and I’d rather pin on pinterest inspiring home images now than messy, complicated yet witty teacher gifts to make.
So I’ve rounded up some rather lovely teacher gifts available to BUY with affiliate links for you! These are the gifts that teachers will actually like because they get given enough boxes of chocolates. So go ahead show your appreciation for a teacher with one of these fantastic gifts because they deserve it and you deserve to give yourself a guilt-free shopping moment!
Because yes, yes they do, they make coffee dates with friends, quiet moments, thinking time, work projects, quicker errand running, exercise classes and much more possible! Notebook (currently 20% off too)
I could have made you a printable design similar, but I didn’t. Because, like I said: end. of. term. So here’s one to buy instead! (also who doesn’t want their kids to go to Lickey school?!)
How sweet are these? and because they really are stars and chocolate is fattening (and you’d resort to eating it on the school run after a particularly stressful house exit when you forgot breakfast, again) (50% off currently)
An actually witty and lovely mug but more importantly it comes WITH COFFEE!
Because you could almost pass them off as if you made them, but you’d never do that, of course!
At the end of the day prosecco and truffles can’t fail to show appreciation (just show will power and only order just in time to prevent accidental disappearing)
There you have it, hope that has helped you and your children and your teachers!
