IF your child’s teacher is in the same class as them, you can show your gratitude at the end of the school year with a special gift.
One small gesture will mean the whole world and no need to go bankrupt.
So say thanks with these budget ideas. . .
MAKE IT SPECIAL: Teachers say that the gifts they cherish most are those made by their students.
Let your little one create their own artwork — a postcard with an image on one side and a message on the other that will melt hearts.
Shown in a silver metal frame, with glass on each side, reduced from £4.5 to £2 at Matalan.
KEEP CUPPIES: For the teacher who loves tea or coffee, what about a reusable cup or special mug for the teacher’s room?
You can order a homemade or store-bought gift inside, and if you can save cash, a gift certificate to their favorite coffee shop would be the best thing.
Attach a handwritten heartfelt gift card from your child.
PLEASE NOTE: Every teacher will appreciate a new notepad.
