What to put into hampers for teachers

I love giving and receiving gifts, especially thoughtful ones. Regardless of the price tag, giving a gift shows that you had the receiver in mind and it is really the thought that counts. I have recently discovered the beauty of giving hamper gifts to people. When I can’t decide on just one thing to get, I get a couple in a beautiful basket and gift it to someone special. The kids will be finishing pre school in a few weeks and I have been busy thinking of what to gift their teachers. They have been in this pre school for almost 2 years, and their teachers have been great. It would be nice to gift them an amazing hamper.

To be honest, I think teachers all over the world work really hard in comparison to what they earn. And I strongly they enjoy the work they do. Teaching is not a job you do for money. I believe the teachers are passionate about their jobs and they do it with all over their hearts and I celebrate them everyday. Kids are hard work and majority of the teachers are doing a great job. They deserve to be celebrated a bit more.

 

What to put into hampers for teachers

So what do we put into hampers for teachers? Here are some ideas –

 

Milk Chocolate Hamper

Chocolates are always a great idea for hampers. This Thorntons Milk Chocolate Hamper would be an amazing gift. We gave some Thorntons Chocolates to the teachers last Christmas and they all loved them. So I would probably be popping some Thorntons Chocolate into our gift hampers.

 

Thank You Card

A thank you card is another thing I would probably pop into a hamper. Sometimes just saying thank you for all the years of hard work isn’t enough. Which is where the thank you card could be helpful.

 

A Bottle of Wine

I would definitely be putting. bottle of wine into a hamper for the teachers. There are a few wines I have tried this year that I really like, so a few of them would be gifted. Nothing says thank you better than a bottle of a good wine.

 

A Hand Cream

Another great item to pop into a hamper is a hand cream. Most people generally like hand creams, so it is a safe gift option. Going for a natural hand cream like this ODLIQUE Lemon Butter Hand Smoothie would be a great idea.

 

Tea

A pack of tea is also a popular item for hampers. Most people like British Tea, so it is a good idea to put a pack into a hamper.

 

There are many items you could put in a hamper. It really depends on the recipient and the relationship you have with him/her.

How we are surviving the heatwave

It has been very warm these last few weeks in the UK. Many wonder why we Brits go on and on about the heatwave and the reason is because this is not our usual weather. We usually have a few days of extreme warmth in the summer months. Nothing as warm as what we are currently experiencing, which is why we are not prepared for it.

Many homes like ours do have fans to cool down but they don’t help much when it gets dead HOT! I was born in Africa, so extremely warm weather conditions are not new to me. Having said that we are better prepared for them with air conditioners, strong fans and weather appropriate furniture, unlike here in the UK.

So how are we surviving this heatwave?

 

Blackout Blinds and Curtains

Our blackout blinds are helping us stay sane. They shut out the sunlight and help keep the room cool. I have them down all day and it helps us say cool. We also have blackout curtains and they also help massively too. I wonder how we would have coped without them in this heatwave. It would have been unbearable.

If you are after great blackout blinds or curtains, then you should have a look on Direct Blinds website. They have stock amazing blinds, curtains and even shutters.

 

Plenty of Cold Drinks and Snacks

I am usually not a fan of ice creams but I must confess, I have been taking quite a lot of them in the last few weeks. Cold drinks and snacks help keep me sane. Our freezer is currently stocked with ice creams, ice lollies, ice creams and lots of drinks.

 

Lots of Sunscreen

We never leave the house without applying lots of sunscreen to protect our skin from the harsh weather. Our hats and sunglasses always go out with us too!

 

Stay Indoors and Cool Baths

We stay indoors pretty much and only go out if we have to. So no long walks at the moment. Just school runs and anywhere else that is important. Having regular cool baths also helps lower body temperature.

 

Wear Weather Appropriate Clothes

Wearing the right clothing helps massively. We dress as lightly as possible, avoiding dark colours as they absorb more heat. Wearing loose-fitting, lightweight, and lightly colored clothing to stay cool and stylish this heatwave.

 

Is it dead warm where you are? How are you surviving the heatwave?
