With the end of term approaching now is the time to start thinking how you can thank your child's teacher!

We agree these figures are staggering but have to admit that a good teacher not only educates your child but innovates, encourages, inspires and supports your child and is probably, apart from parents, one of the most important people in your child's life. So although the pressure may exist in competing with other parents on the type/cost of gift, it is important and special to go some way to show your appreciation for all their hard work.
There are hundreds of well known quotes dedicated to the good work teachers do every day. Here's some of our favourites accompanied by a gift idea to perfectly reflect that quote -
A pretty potted plant is always appreciated and will be a great reminder all year round. Combine your gift with the quote/gift message: "A teacher plants the seeds of knowledge, sprinkles them with love, and patiently nurtures their growth to produce tomorrow's dreams."
