It’s the time of the year when summer holidays are on the horizon and school is coming to an end. It’s also the time to start looking for an original gift to thank those wonderful teachers who have taken care of your children with kindness and love during this school year.
This had me thinking about my own school days and of all the teachers who taught me over the years. I remember all kinds of different teachers: the good, the phenomenal as well as the not-so-good ones. But what really strikes me is that everyone will keep in their mind for most of their life one or more teachers who were extra-special, who had the power to inspire you, to transform a boring lesson into a fun one and who really encouraged you with their words and their support. No matter how many years have passed, they became part of your life as they helped you to shape your future choices.
“[Kids] don't remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are.”
It’s so important to thank this person and a present can sometimes be a good way to show your appreciation. The big question then is: what would make a great gift for a teacher? It can be challenging to find the right present that will be memorable, original and at the same time really delicious (wink wink).
“True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.”
Why not gift a little luxury with a Lavolio collection of delicious handmade confectionery? Our sweets are presented in an elegant tin box that makes a perfect gift, beautifully packaged and delivered for under £15. If you happen to know the taste preferences of the teacher in question, you can also make the gift more personal: we have five different collections each of which contains a delightful mix of different flavours: Nutty Forest, Arabian Nights, Coconut Follies, Fruit Garden and Decadent Spiced. You can personalise your gift by including a message which we will hand-write on your behalf and we can also gift-wrap it for free.
