Since many parents have had a taste of homeschooling over the last few months, they are more appreciative than ever for the hard work teachers do. At this time of year, many of us are looking for gift ideas for teachers to say thanks. It’s easy to default to gifting them chocolates and mugs but we have some alternative personalised gifts for your child’s teachers that are bound to go down a treat.

Club together to give an intu gift card

Why not club together to treat your teacher this year and set up a group gifting account online with the rest of the class. Give the gift of anything with an intu gift card so that your child’s teacher can spend it on fashion, food or leisure. The intu gift card is valid for a year from the date of purchase (you can load it up with any amount from £5 to £1000) meaning that they can spend it all at once or bit by bit. It makes the perfect gift to give together as a group or from the whole class. For some ideas on fun things your teacher could spend their new gift on, browse here.

intu gift cards are available online or in your local intu centre.

Keep the kids entertained and make homemade cards

There is nothing more special than a handmade card that’s been made and sent with love. The benefit of making a card from scratch, means you can personalise it towards the teacher you’re sending it to, and it gives the kids creative freedom to design it however they’d like. It also means it gives the kids something to stay busy with for a couple of hours too! All you need, is to get out the craft box full of paints, stickers, stamps and glitter and let the kids go wild. If you are looking for crafts bits why not head to WHSmith and browse their craft section. Once completed, you can post or drop the card to the teacher at the school.

W H Smith is available at intu Braehead, intu Derby, intu Lakeside, intu Metrocentre, intu Potteries, intu Trafford Centre, intu Victoria and intu Watford.
