It’s been a while, dear readers, since we were in school, yet we can still remember our favourite teachers. Mr McCracken was an enthusiastic, fresh faced, cords wearing English teacher, who helped develop our love of writing. Mrs Rorison was a glamour puss primary school teacher, who enveloped us in a heady whiff of Elnett, coffee and cigarettes when she bent over to correct our spelling. Perma-tanned and dripping in jangly gold jewellery, we wanted to be just like her when we were older, minus the 20 a day habit of course.
Now that we’re all grown up and have friends and family quietly cultivating our future prime ministers, poets and accountants, we can really appreciate just how hard teachers work. Inspiring, teaching algebra, organising talent shows, keeping parents happy and their cool in the face of chattering children certainly isn’t easy. So if your kids have a teacher that you think they’ll be remembering in 20 years’ time with a smile, then it’s worth giving them something a little special to say thank you.
We’ve noticed that our teacher friends love to keep the handwritten thank you cards and drawings from their students, so why not ask your little one to put pen to paper to show their gratitude for a year spent with their favourite teacher. This would make a fantastic accompaniment to a thoughtful (yet not too pricey) gift that encourages some well-earned rest and relaxation.
We’re currently offering 25% off our Spring Couture box sets, which look beautiful and perfectly seasonal, the ideal gift for the special teacher in your child’s life. These come in delicious, fresh, summery scents such as Lavender and Geranium and Persian Lime and the addition of a stylish gift box gives a real luxury feel.
Our new range of hand and body lotions are also guaranteed to ensure that your child goes top of the class for gift giving. In floral, fruit, spice, zest, herb or citrus, these rich and luxurious lotions offer up the opportunity for some much needed pampering and are a lovely addition to a scented candle or a matching body wash.
With school out for summer fast approaching you might want to double up on these gifts and treat yourself too, as there’s nothing like lighting a scented candle and indulging in a little pamper time to help unwind after a busy day with excitable kids!
