End of term gifts for sporty teachers

Chocolates, wine or a teddy that reads 'World's Best Teacher'. I don't know about you but I usually feel pretty uninspired when it comes to shopping for end of term 'thank you' presents for my daughter's school and clubs teachers. Until I realised that for once, I did know a little about the interests of teachers in question - and even had something in common with them - we'd all run the Reading Half Marathon earlier in the year (and one of them did it in an amazing time too!). With this is mind I could finally hope to buy a present that would be great to give - and receive!

Reading between the lines

Since my eldest daughter loves to read, and one of the super fit teachers I was buying for takes her for literacy, it made sense to start at the bookshelves of Amazon. Running Shoes Are A Girl's Best Friend, tells the stories of 53 women who run (they share their reasons, motivation and tips too) and would be just the sort of book I'd love to settle down to. While something like The Extra Mile would be a great inspirational read. Of course if you're buying for a keen cyclist, a swimmer or yoga enthusiast, then there's plenty to choose from too (I looked for titles under £10).

Cool workout wear

I could look at gym clothes all day. And then some. So shopping for some sporty teachers was pure pleasure for me! Amazon has some great basic sportswear, which I'd probably been missing out on in the past. If you happen to know teacher's size you could consider buying a decent workout vest, some standout compression socks or trendy shorts. You might even want to get together with a few other parents and get a personalised hoodie made up so your gift can be practical and personal.

Little extras

If you workout regularly there's always another little bit of kit you have your eye on - and fortunately a lot of these items aren't expensive. There's always room in the kit bag of a fitness fanatic for another water bottle, new earphones or a cute towel. And depending on their interests a teacher might also appreciate pilates socks, protective gloves (for weight lifting, cycling etc), a stunning yoga mat bag (again a great 'clubbing together' present) or some Zumba toning sticks.

Coaching

Perhaps your child has taken after-school activities to an altogether different level and is training hard in a sporty discipline with a more specialised teacher? Or maybe you happen to know that golf, horse riding or tennis is the field that a particular teacher enjoys? Yep, Amazon has pretty much something for every sport and healthy hobby out there! And it's guaranteed to go straight home to be used - not left in a staff room sink awash with mugs ironically all declaring 'No 1 teacher'!!




Do you buy teacher gifts? Or will there be a class collection? Do you have a killer idea for an original present - or are you against the idea totally? Perhaps your child takes the time to write a thank you note or make a present? I'd love to know how other parents deal with this time of the year - and the sheer amount of thank yous required!
