  • ‘Thank You, Teacher!’ – The Gifts They Want!

    Say 'thank you' with these great gift ideas

    It’s July, and you know what that means? No, I don’t mean Wimbledon; I’m talking about the end of the academic year!

    Soon kids will be flooding the streets, making the most out of a summer that’s claimed to be scorching, whilst some will be jetting away for holidays to explore new lands and gain new experiences. However, before that happens there’s still the little matter of the last couple of weeks before school actually ends.
    School's out for summer, baby!

    And so, you may be thinking about buying a little something-something to say 'thank you' to that teacher who has worked so hard throughout the year, put in loads of effort, and has truly made a difference?

    Appreciation for teachers, the ones shaping today’s youth into the future working citizens of this country, is one of those end-of-year traditions that, no matter the age group they teach, ends the year on a high note.

    Due to their caring nature, teachers love any present; it’s true. However, there are gifts that can go the extra mile, and it doesn't have to break your budget and can still come straight from the heart. After all, the last thing you want to give them is something they already have a lot of, and, as a consequence, they won’t even use it!

    So, here are a few versatile gift ideas if you’re still scratching your head over what to get. They’re all useful, they’re all affordable, and they’re all here at Poundstretcher!

    C is for ‘Chocolate’, L is for ‘Lots of it’!

    Lots of chocolate to say 'thank you'

    Shall we start with the tastiest and most obvious choice? Chocolate! Sweet, sweet chocolate! Why not just end the year with a touch of sweetness and stick to this safe and delicious option? You’d only find a very small handful of people out there who don’t love such a treat; there’s just so much choice when it comes to the sugary stuff.

    If you’re hunting for something simple and classic, then nothing can trump the crispy aspect of Maltesers or the variety of Quality Street. However, if you’re looking for something that looks a little more special, then we at Poundstretcher have you covered with our Cadbury Milk Tray, a small selection of flavoured Cadbury milk chocolate.
    Say 'thank you' and enjoy the delicious maltesers with their crispy taste

    There’s plenty more where that came from too. We stock a wide range of chocolates, from bars to pouches to eggs (cream eggs to be exact). They all make the perfect snack to feast on in those last few days of after-school marking before that nice, long, well-deserved summer break.

    SATS (Scents A Teacher Smells)

    If chocolate is a no-go, then why not give that special teacher in your life a dash of aromatherapy? No, I don’t mean some fancy spa treatment. Something as simple as a reed diffuser or a candle is more than enough to fill their living space with a fragrance that’ll relax them after a long day.

    Inject some vigour into their home, especially during those long summer days, with some reed diffusers. Coming in lavender, sweet pea, fresh cotton, and French vanilla scents, there’s enough to pick from and a range spanning fresh scents to those sweet-smelling ones.

    Why not say 'thank you' to those teachers with a set of these?

    Also, if reed diffusers aren’t hip enough, then you can always get them a candle IN a Mason jar. Stylish, right? These mini Mason jar candles come in a range of mouth-watering fragrances: cherry, coconut, mulberry, and even marshmallow! The handle makes for easy moving around the home, and the quirky style will fit comfortably in any room. No matter where they go, a relaxing scent can always be there for when they just want to chill.

    However, whilst smelly things are a great gift idea, tread lightly; think long and hard about what fragrance you think the teacher would like, or ask them directly (or be sneaky and have your child ask). Like perfumes and aftershaves, there are many scents out there, and not everyone likes everything.

    Decorating Desks

    Alliteration is great, isn’t it? We learnt it gives colour and a sticking-power in our writing. That’s exactly what these next few ideas will do to your teacher’s desk, be it in the classroom or at home. So, after the edible stuff and the smelly things, here’s some purely aesthetic, handy little things teachers will love.

    Get your teacher's desk looking fantastic with these 'thank you' gifts

    There's one thing that a teacher always needs more of (aside from time), and that's storage. With the mass amount of pens, pencils, toys, books, papers, and inky stamps, there has to be a place to put them all. That's where these practical storage boxes come in!

    Regardless if the teacher in question would prefer pretty butterfliesflowers, or bold geometric shapes, why not allow them to have their things kept safe in a neat and organised way?

    And to top it off? Why not utilise the power of the sun itself with this adorable Solar Flower Buddy (also makes for a useful teaching aid)? Watch it dance side-to-side as it soaks up the sun's rays!

    Art & Design Time

    Nothing says 'thank you' quite like some creatively designed gifts like these

    If you’d rather go the extra mile and instead get your creative juices flowing, then why not think about using a Mason jar and turn it into a fantastic homemade gift? How, you may ask? Simple, take some of our delicious sweets (such as our Maltesers, Skittles, or Squashies) and stuff them inside, creating a more personalised gift than simply handing a standard bag over.

    Don’t want to go in the sweets direction? Then you could always fill it with handwritten messages of praise and admiration. Once the jar is empty, it can then serve another purpose: being a quirky pencil pot to keep on their desk, or to simply keep at home for all their marking stationery.

    Do (Not) Let Me Repeat Myself

    The last idea is a keeper; chocolate – wait, did this already get mentioned? It did? Well, can you blame us for wanting to mention it twice? It really is the staple to give your beloved teacher something edible to munch on when they finally get to put their feet up for the summer.

    Say 'thank you' to your teachers with Poundstretcher

    All in all, no matter what you decide on to say 'thank you', make sure to give the gift search a big A for Effort! Head on down to your local Poundstretcher and find that perfect bargain gift today (remember: only a couple of weeks left)!
