To be honest I am quite glad to see the back of this school year. I really don’t know why but I feel like we need a fresh start in the motivational department. We most certainly need a break from early rushed mornings too. I’ve had various emails from the class reps about donations and cards for the teachers from both P1s school and P2s nursery. I tend to avoid joining in with these as I like to sort it out myself.
This year I haven’t really focused on getting much for P1s class teachers as for some reason I haven’t felt so connected with them this year despite their hard work in supporting our autism referal. She has had teacher switchovers half way through the year and I just feel a little deflated which is one reason why I’m extremely looking forward to the next year for her.
However, P2s nursery have gone above and beyond and I feel this incredible pull to make sure they know how much I appreicate their work. Luckily, I was offered to review some Teacher Gifts by Mantra Jewellery and I instantly knew this would be the perfect gift for P2s key teacher. They have bracelets, necklaces and earrings to pick from in really cute teacher appropriate designs; apples, bees, a bow, butterflies and owls.
A mantra is a slogan or phrase that is repeated frequently, like a motivational quote. I love the little mantras on the Teacher gift selection of jewellery. The owl one is “Wisdom begins in wonder” and the other one I really loved is the bee one which says “Hard work brings sweet rewards”. I picked the owl necklace because P2 has a thing for owls at the moment which seemed appropriate for her to give to her most favourite teacher.
The necklace is made from 925 sterling silver with a 16-18in chain. It is such a delicate little necklace and I am really excited to see P2 give it to her teacher this week. It comes on a lovely Mantra card, wrapped in tissue paper, inside a really cute gift pouch. The box is placed inside a thin cardboard box which handily fits through the letter box. The postage is free and takes 3-4 days so there’s still time to order now for the end of term!! This specific piece of jewellery only costs £30 and although that’s a little pricey for a teacher gift, P2s teacher is 100% worth it!
For the manager of her nursery I have bought a deliciously smelling Lush gift box as she was super pleased with one I had given her a few months ago. I really hope that the teachers are thrilled with their gifts just as much as I am with them. I still can’t believe that it’s the end of term and a whole year has passed.
