Creative Customised Gifts for Today’s Teachers
Very few households in today’s South Africa have virtually unlimited funds at their disposal. Although currently performing somewhat better than a few months ago, the South African rand’s international exchange rate is not particularly strong. Food prices and the cost of living increase with alarming regularity; household budgets are tight.
Keeping Within the Budget
Accordingly, additional expense-incurring activities, such as giving gifts - in general, and specifically, to non-family members, like a circle of friends or teachers, have been down-scaled and of necessity, become more modest, in keeping with the family’s disposable income and budget.
A Vital Educational Role
Nonetheless, when it comes to your children’s education, his or her teacher fulfils a vitally important role, especially during the youngsters’ most formative years. It’s normal practice to give a teacher a gift at the end of the school year, even more so if the teacher has paid particular attention to one’s child and his or her all-important educational development.
What’s Affordable and Customisable?
This begs two questions. What type of gifts can you buy at an affordable price, one that will be appreciated, irrespective of its cost? How do you customise the item, without breaking the bank?
From Ordinary to Special
Customisation indicates that you’ve given the gift considerable thought, in the true spirit of voluntary giving; customisation typically transforms a relatively ordinary item into one that’s special, conveying a deeper, sincere meaning, intended for a special person – the teacher.
The Conundrum and its Solution
You may have a conundrum on your hands, but we, at Labels4Schools, have a super solution, one that never fails to please and delight because it is personalised with your own indelible message of thanks and gratitude – an ideal gift for a teacher. An affordable customised mug from Labels4Schools is a perfect option.
A mug is useful, decorative and always appreciated, a great reminder, a memento of your child and the year (or longer period of time) spent learning, growing and developing intellectually, under the guidance of a special, dedicated, professional educator.
Designed to Delight
At Labels4Schools, we’ve added various newly designed messages to our collection of teachers’ and principals’ mug giftware. Some messages are humorous; others more serious, but all are designed to delight during tea and coffee breaks at school and at home.
- Each mug holds 300ml.
- The background and inner surface are plain, clean, pure white, which contrasts beautifully with the text messages printed on the mug’s exterior.
- On the front, each mug presents its own colourful message, selected from a variety of options for teachers, principals, moms and dads, and kids. We also offer a generic range.
- On its reverse side, you express your own customised sentiments, which we print according to your requirements.
- Two lines of customised text, plus an optional third line can be accommodated; inclusion of emojis is not possible.
- Mugs’ fonts for customised messages, designed to complement the text on mug fronts, are indicated in the thumbnail pictures that accompany each option’s enlarged image on the Labels4School website.
- Print is done by our expert printers, in durable, high-quality, perfectly legible full-colour ink.
- All mugs are dishwasher safe.
When looking at the pristine surfaces of our modern, customised gift mugs for teachers, it’s difficult to believe that mugs or items that fulfilled a similar function are actually an ancient invention.
One surmises that before man learned to produce such objects, he may have scooped water from a stream in a large leaf, animal skin or hollow piece of bark. As the ancients learned to use tools, they produced drinking vessels by carving them out of wood or animal bone.
Clay was the next material used in hand-making ancient drinking vessels, when survival techniques served as the only form of learning, passed down through generations. However, today, simply contact Labels4School for your funky fun and customised gifts for teachers et al.
