Gift Ideas for teachers

Creative ideas & Inexpensive gifts

It is that time of year again when everyone scratches their heads wondering what to buy a teacher as a thank you gift for their handwork.

I have created hampers in the past and just bought chocolates but this year I wanted to create something a little bit more special.  Using a card which I bought from a small local business (great for our economy as we support the many small businesses out there) and it was a super easy to create a really nice gift and a very affordable price tag. My girls enjoyed helping me make them too, they enjoyed being part of it and they can’t wait to give their gift to them already – only 4 more weeks to wait!

So, for your ease I asked a few local designers to put forward their cards as options for you to make this gift. If you click on their links it will take you straight through to their shop so you can buy the product and when it arrives put it together.

This is Jenny Dunlop Art’s version which she has made for us very quickly in the video below.

You can write your own message and embellish the print if you use a box frame which you can buy from any high street shop such as Wilko’s, Dunelm, The Range, IKEA this list goes on.



I suggest this fun Jenny Dunlop Art – Cute little pig card but she has a host of different designs and my personal favourite are the Flamingos.


Flying Teaspoons make fabulous variety of local cards for Staffs & Stokies! Here is one suggestion, however, this card does come with no writing called ‘City Life’. Click the link to her shop to view this card & browse others. For a cute factor try this red squirrel image. Great to let kids loose on embellishing it. Link to buy this card.



Keeping with the local theme, Statement Artworks do many a card specific to locations around Manchester & Cheshire – some many not be appropriate for kiddies to give. Here is just one card to see his style & then click the link to visit his page to drop him an email to find out where he will be next to collect.
