A* gifts for teachers

Gorgeous gifts for teachers that beat a novelty mug hands down. Plus an exclusive Muddy discount.

It’s the end of the school year, and let’s be honest, teachers deserve a medal. Yes, yes, they get lovely long holidays. But, seriously, would you want to spending your days trying to get the attention of 30 kids long enough for them to actually learn something? Hell no.

The eldest mudder is in his final year at primary school. He’s as tall as me (just for the record, I am not a hobbit), and definitely ready to move on. But I feel a little bereft. So a little token to say, ta very much, seems like a really nice thing to do.

When you’re being inundated with novelty mugs and stationary, here’s you chance to stand out from the crowd.

Gift Pop – a brilliant, sunny site full of lovely things you really really want – has some fab pressies, to suit all budgets, that are perfect for teachers. Even better, you can get an exclusive 10% Muddy discount until the end of July on everything. How amazing is that! Buy something for Miss, buy something for yourself. Trust me it’s hard to resist.

Here’s my A* Muddy edit to (almost) guarantee your mudlet will go to the top of the class…

SHAKE YOUR TASSELS: Moroccan Tassel keyring… pimp up your bag, help you never lose your keys, these Moroccan Tassel Keyrings, available in all the colour of the rainbow are perfect gift, £5.

OFF THE CUFF: Treat Miss to some cool arm candy with a funky cuff. Made in the UK they are available in metallics, neons and animal prints. Available in two widths the skinny version is £10; and the thick, £15.

IT’S A WRAP: You can’t go wrong with a scarf. Shake your pom poms at this lots because Gift Pop has a range of stunning scarves and they fly off the shelves. Pop over to Gift Pop see the full range. Prices start at £12. (From left: Denim with neon trim, £20, grey with large pom poms £20 and flamingos £15.)

BASKET CASE: It’ the gift of organisation. These sequin and star baskets are fab. I have one for my magazines, but some people use it for their loo cool. You could even posh up your picnic or save yourself 10p and take for a spin at the local shop – it’s the perfect size to hide a bottle of sauvignon blanc and a big bag of Doritos. From £15.

PIN UP: Check out these Ribbons & Pins noticeboards. Organisation has never looked so good. I’m in love. It’s the most expensive thing I’ve chosen but it is something really special. If you’re pushing the boat out, this is perfect. Available in stars, flamingos and pineapple prints, the boards measure 30x46cm and are ready to hang, £35. Forget your teacher, just buy it for yourself. It’s so lush there’s a chance I’ll be a bit better organised next term. Must try harder.

Don’t forget you have until 31 July 2017 to get an exclusive 10% off – quote code MUDDYBERKS.
