Teacher thank you gifts

So here's a little idea the girlies and I came up with to say thank you to all their teaching staff at the end of the school year (all 16 of them!). Homemade strawberry jam from the allotment, homemade strawberry shortbread biscuits (made by the girls with the cutest plunge cutter) and a lovely matching strawberry tin picked up in the bargain bit of a supermarket. All in a matching gift bag with tissue and a handmade card from the girls. Job done! Was fun to do, didn't cost the earth and went down a treat!

And in close up!

It said thank you with our time rather than our money which I always think is always more valuable. (Not that we have much of either!) Hope you liked it!


  1. As a teacher, I would have loved to have received this as a present.
    Very thoughtful and delish too.

  2. Thank you! That's good to hear!

  3. Fantastic gift, we make most of our gifts too and they always get a great response.

  4. What lovely gifts. They are so beautifully presented too.
