Gift of wine stands the test of time for teachers

Thinkstock

TERM four has started, which means school is almost out and it's time to start thinking about gifts for our school teachers.

It is a lovely gesture to give a little thank you to the people who have taught, played with and - let's face it - endured our children during the year.

I'd be very surprised if my son's Year 2 teacher doesn't start a drinking habit after having my little precious in her class this year.

She has the patience of a saint, so I think she deserves something a bit spesh.

Remember, the more trips to the principal's office during the year, the more you should probably spend on a gift. I think I'll need a bank loan! Here are some ideas.

Classic gifts

Box of chocolates

Flowers in a pot

A nice boxed pen set

Fancy selection of tea or coffee blends

Gift vouchers to Typo (seriously - who doesn't love Typo?)

Wine

 

Practical gifts

The gifts that a teacher can use - and are pretty.

2016 journal

Wall calendar

Coloured paperclips

A HUGE coffee cup (they need it - don't be stingy)

Wine

Personalised gifts

A photo frame (if your child was naughty don't include a picture)

Laptop bag

Coloured clipboards in the teacher's favourite colour

Selection of fun stamps or stickers

Wine

 

Christmassy gifts

Christmas earrings or cufflinks

Boxed Lions Christmas Cake (practical and goes to a good cause)

Box of homemade Christmas biscuits

Christmas mug filled with chocolate bars

Wine
