It’s that time of year again when we hear mums asking, “What are the best teacher gift ideas to say thank you?”. The answer is not a personalised mug.
This year the ‘thank you’ gift is even more important. With nightmares of homeschooling still haunting many parents, our survey revealed 53% of parents are much more grateful for teachers. However, only 15% of teachers are feeling considerably more appreciated.
So, how can parents say thanks when COVID has put a stop to gathering at the school gate to organise something special or even giving home cooked goodies?
A whopping 77% of parents surveyed prefer to get their child’s teacher a gift card when it comes to end of year gifts, and 82% of teachers said that they prefer to receive a gift card rather than a tangible gift. So it seems that everyone is in agreement and has received the memo when it comes to gift cards.
GroupTogether lets parents chip in and give a gift card from the whole class, so the teacher will be able to buy something they really want. It’s simple to set-up! Just create, collect and spend. Find out how it works.
GroupTogether has that sorted too. The group card lets everyone write a message and upload a photo, which is a great keepsake for the teacher. Parents simply clink on a link and can choose to contribute (or not, depending on how you choose to set it up) and then sign the card and add a pic. Simple!
If you want to just give a group card, you can do that too. For free!
Send it online, print it out at home or get it printed professionally.
It’s the best of both worlds – a thoughtful card from the whole class AND a gift they actually want.
Better yet, select a GroupTogether Any Card which can be printed inside the card and the teacher can choose their own gift card from any of our retailers.
