As the end of the school year draws near, busy parents are racking their brains to work out what to give their child’s teacher as a thank-you gift. Chocolates or a candle, just like last year? Or, if they’re lucky enough to live in a town or city which has a Gift Card, they can give the teacher the gift of choice!
If you’re a place manager, this time of year offers a great opportunity to promote your Gift Card programme. With denominations ranging from £10 to £200, the Card can be marketed as a gift from an individual child or a whole-class group.
And not just for teachers. Teaching assistants, Brownie and Cub leaders, music tutors, sports coaches – there are so many people that the parents and kids want to thank.
Borrow an idea
The Perth Gift Card has used a bright, happy photo on Facebook of a teacher with her class to illustrate the idea of a Gift Card as a teacher present. Adding information about the places that sell the Card means that the parents can buy quickly and easily! The Elgin Gift Card has taken to Instagram and Facebook with a cute apple and blackboard, reminding everyone that it’s great to “shop local”.
