Teachers’ Day is round the corner and since the girl is in school, that means that there are teachers to appreciate. I could remember the many gifts that the pupils gave to me on that special day but the more memorable ones were those drawings and cards made personally by the pupils. One doesn’t have to spend a bomb on Teachers’ Day gifts (anyway, we cannot accept expensive gifts) but I thought the following are good gift ideas.
Most teachers need a lot of caffeine to keep themselves awake throughout the day. We keep sachets of coffee and tea in our drawers and we wouldn’t mind coffee such as the above.
Some teachers prefer tea to coffee and I thought this is a nice way to package the tea bags. Get your child to help make the ‘tea cup’!
I know teachers are busy and at times, they skip meals just to catch up with marking and preparation of the lessons. If you are into baking, cookies are always welcome. You can always reuse jam jars and place the cookies in it or you can even use the CD envelope to package them! I know Daiso sells nice jars!
If you want to go an extra mile and decorate the cookies, these are beautiful ones and they are sure to cheer the teachers up! These are sugar cookies decorated either using royal icing or fondant. Get the child to help!
This is another wonderful gift idea. Teachers need energy throughout the day and these snacks will surely help!
How about baking cupcakes for the teachers? Involve your children in the baking and wrapping of the cupcakes and they will be super proud as they present these sweet treats to their teachers.
Fancy gifting the teachers a personalised mug with your own designs and wordings on it? The Gethsemane Care Ministry (TGCM), set up in 2005 by Gethsemane Bible Presbyterian Church, is a Gospel outreach (non-profit & self-sustaining) to those who are enslaved in the bondage of drug addiction. The Ministry serves to improve the life of the residents by providing livelihood and preparing them to integrate back to society. Recently they expanded their line of service (from disposal, removal, painting, cleaning, transport) to high resolution Photo Mug Printing services. The prices of the customised mugs range from $7 to $11 and are meaningful gifts for teachers.On top of that, your patronage of the services offered by TGCM will go a long way in helping this ministry stay viable and effective. To engage their service, you may call 62816356.
You may read more about the experience of Mummy Ade who had engaged their services.
As I have mentioned, nothing beats a card that is handmade by the pupil himself (but that’s just me) and you could perhaps add these gift tags which serve as great bookmarks!
Now, what should I get or make for Faith’s teachers?
