June: the end of classes and the start of school holidays. Your youngster’s teacher will never ask, but it’s always a nice touch to give a little something when he or she has done such a good job supervising them all year.
And so, dear parents, here are 10 ideas to please your teachers, based on their interests and type.
Herb-growing set (Kozy — $19.99)
The perfect set for your enviro-friendly educator. Kozy is where you’ll find this garden jar kit that you can give to a green thumbed teacher as well as to one who doesn’t quite manage to preserve their plants. You never know!
Picnic basket (Stokes — $49.98)
Teachers fully deserve their summer vacation, so why not give one a wicker basket, so he or she can enjoy the time off too?
Reusable lunch bags (Simons — $15)
To delight your eco-friendly teacher and encourage their consumption habits, get some reusable lunch bags — they’ll revolutionize lunchtime. It’s an easy way to get your teacher and their colleagues to be less wasteful.
Set of mugs (Stokes — prices vary)
Granted, it’s not that original! But for those who absolutely insist on giving a set of mugs to that stylish teacher, here are three that will definitely inspire envy.
Home décor accessories (Kozy — price varies)
With a choice of kitchen and home décor accessories, including throws and candles, Kozy is a bit of heaven on earth. A goldmine for teachers’ gifts.
Natural seagrass basket (Simons — $25)
If you’ve got a mid-sized budget, this nice basket serves for both storage and as a planter. It’s perfect for the teacher whose classroom always looks good. Thank you, Simons, for this one!
Aromatic collection (La Maison Lavande — price varies)
A set of aromatic products from La Maison Lavande is a classic that never goes out of style. Soap, cream, candles and cleanser — it’s a nice way to say thank you.
Traced diamonds throw (Simons — $29.95)
For the more sensitive teacher, or one who spends the summer at the cottage, here’s a gift that they can take around with them. A good way to make them not forget you over the break.
Spring Break Teas (David’s Tea — $20)
The name says it all — teas for time off! The perfect gift to encourage your teacher to get away from it all. Delicious warm or cold, the teas in this sampler from David’s Tea are chockful of tropical inspiration. Mmmm…
Assorted chocolates (Laura Secord — from $15 to $30)
It’s hard to go wrong with an assortment of chocolates from Laura Secord. Come to think of it, is there a better way to say thank you than by giving sweets? No way.
Of course, let’s not forget that even a card, a few words, a message or a simple drawing can suffice and is always appreciated. And with that, we wish you, dear parents, a lovely, well-deserved vacation too. Make the most of it!
