Thank you teacher gifts

Why your teacher deserves a thank you gift

The end of term is looming!

So for all you organised Mums and Dads our personalised teacher gifts are now available to order.

Here are 5 great reasons why your teacher deserves a thank you gift.

1) Teachers are one of the most crucial figures in our children’s lives, supporting nurturing and inspiring them every single day. So it’s important to say ‘Thank You’ for being not only an amazing teacher but for all that they do throughout the year for your child and their class.

2) Teachers deserve it – After all they spend more time with your child each day than you do!

3) It teaches your child to show gratitude for all that their teachers have done for them throughout the year.

Why not say thank you with a personalised and thoughtful gift?

4) Thank them for helping your child to grow and show them how appreciated they are with an end of term gift.

5) Not only are you buying a gift for the teacher to remember your child/ren but you are supporting a small business. 

So whether you want a gift just from your child or something from the whole class we have something for you.

We can create the perfect present to help show your wonderful teacher they are loved and valued and all their hard work is truly appreciated

Why not say a big THANK YOU to your wonderful teachers for all the hard work they have done this year with a truly thoughtful gift they can enjoy for years to come.

After all they do deserve it!

Brainstorm on the Horizon

A cathartic day together last week spring cleaning our website out and dreaming up new best sellers. With the help of Natalie’s Father she happens to have accumilated the most amazing collection of vintage stamps. So we dreamt up a new inital design, that would be made from a collage of stamps, all on a particular theme! A perfect gift for the bloke/Dad in your life! We had fun grouping them into car, sport, sailing and fishing categories. More images to come as they fly off the press! Just had a commission in today for a surname in the copper letters so it was worth creating this new inital design last month. We will post pictures of the final artwork when we have found a big enough frame!

Have a Sweet Christmas

As the golden leaves dance away and colder days creep in, there is still plenty of time left for Christmas shopping (unlike many retailers we are not one for creating a panic!) All our designs make fabulous personalised gifts, and are often a little cheaper direct from us. The P&P is free in the UK and if you order soon you will have no problems in getting it in time for Christmas…phew!

The Scandinavian shop Tiger is the perfect way to buy stuff you never even thought you wanted and def. don’t actually NEED.

Renegade Craft Fair

Natalie and I spent a fabulous afternoon at The Renegade Craft Fair in Truman’s Brewery, Brick Lane, the standard of work was amazing and some very lovely ‘crafty’ people. Got carried away with the prints as per usual… and finished off with tea: scrambled eggs on toast and smoked salmon in our favourite French cafe Chez Elle’s .

Sea of Poppies

Went to The Tower of London this week to see the encroaching mud replace the sea of flowers. Still moving, I think it’s right that it is being dismantled as it’s not ‘Disneyland” after all.
Top right image looks like a half filled glass of red wine; my photographic toast to Paul Cummins!

A Saturday in Spittlefields

blob oct

18th October: our much overdue day out: Natalie and I met at Spittlefields in our usual spot ‘Patisserie Valerie’. Threw around ideas for new Christmas products, swapped tales of recent customers from both heaven and ….honest 90% from heaven! Aired our hopes and big creative dreams for the future. Then brushed ourselves down and wandered through the market’s monthly pop up vintage section and down into Brick Lane. Lunch at Chez Elles – Gorgeous French cafe for salad and a celebratory kir royale. Dropped into Etsy’s wee art exhibition, stumbled across this collection of graffiti in a side street. Finally a quick peek into a pop Gallery with some rather magical animals made of wire, a great inspirational day off thanks Nats!
