Best Teacher Gifts! What to get them!

Every year we get to July and we're racking our brains trying to think of something special and meaningful to get the teachers as a thankyou gift from the children. What do teachers want? What are the Best Teacher Gifts Now, lovely as chocolate and bubble bath are, how about getting them something a bit different so they don't get 30 of them?

Best Teacher Gifts? A Whole Class Gift

Now we've got something extra special for that fabulous teacher - how about clubbing together as a whole class and making a gift that says a huge thank you and also makes a special memory for their teacher? We can make a special memory plate with all the kid's fingerprints and it can be put on proud display in their teacher's class room to remind them of how fab they are at their job. It doesn't have to be a plate of course, a mug for those well deserved coffee's also goes down a treat!

We've turned their little fingerprints into owls, bees, apples and sooo much more in the past. But we're also creative and open to your ideas! We can tailor the piece to your children and their teacher to make it even more personal and special <3

Yes I want to make something what now?

Now you've got the idea for a killer gift, saved the planet (as there will be about 30 less bottles of bubble bath in landfill) and reminded their special teacher just how amazing they are. All you need to do is go to our online shop and purchase your plate or mug and some paints and then pop into the studio to collect them. Take them away with you and get the children to add their prints. Once this is done, bring it back to us and we will glaze and fire it and let you know when it is ready to collect again. Once they are glazed the designs are permanent and food / drink safe so not only are they decorative they are also practical!

You will need some paints...

Here is a look at a couple of suggested products that would work well...

and then a writing pen so that you can write the children's names by their fingerprint.

Nope, that requires me being organised. What else?

We've also got some great gifts that you can order through our online shop and collect in store! All pieces are made to order, hand painted and personalised for you so make sure to get your orders in early! View Shop.

Can the kids get involved?

Yes of course they can definitely paint their own gifts. There's nothing more personal and special than a hand painted gift that they can use everyday - make sure to book your session here. Or you can buy a kit to take home if it's tricky getting into the studio.

Still need more ideas?

Why not take a look at our Pinterest board

I've only just thought about it, have I got time?

Potentially it might be too late so best to check when are firing times are. Fear not though we still have you covered! Why not give the gift of a voucher? We offer both pottery painting and clay workshops which often have more adults taking part than children. What better way for a hard working teacher to unwind than with a nice therapeutic clay session?

Oh and don't forget...

We are open in the school holidays for pottery painting, clay workshops and build a bear so why not book a session now to keep the kids entertained.
