Teacher Gifts Guide and Competition

It’s that time of year when it’s almost the end of term and parents start thinking of gifts for their kid’s teacher. In the past I’ve spent ages with my kids making home made gifts or baking cupcakes. Last year I wasn’t well enough and this year I find that they are getting a bit old for the home made things so I will have to buy presents again. Thankfully, Star is now in Secondary School so I only have to buy two gifts for Boo and the Little Man.

Do you buy presents for your kid’s teacher? Tell me what you are buying this year for an entry into my new competition for a box of Cadbury’s Chocolate for sharing. A great way to get the summer holiday started.

First though, please take a moment to browse some of the teacher’s gifts that I’ve found. I would love it if you were to click through as there are lots of other gifts available on these sites and I’m sure  you will find something that’s just perfect for your child’s teacher.

Box of Treats

Last year I bought Star’s teacher a one off box of treats from Boxcitement. She was absolutely thrilled with it. You can find some bargains on the sale page.

Tea Lovers Gift

Who doesn’t love a nice cuppa! This gift from Twinings is just lovely and they have many other gifts in their shop too.

Travel Books

Why not inspire the teacher to get away from it all during the break with a fabulous travel book like Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travelist

Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

Now this is a great gift for any teacher, they can go home, bake themselves a delicious chocolate chip cookie in less than a minute and put their feet up, relax and enjoy! Contains 3 portions to microwave in just 45 seconds.

Cat Mug

Do you know that your kids teacher is a cat lover? Well, then they would love to receive this amazing Cat Mug from My Geek Box. You can find all sorts of geeky gifts  at My Geek Box from Doctor Who to Star Wars and much more and prices start from less than £10. So check them out if you are looking for something a little bit different.

Chocolate is a great gift but you could make it even greater buy buying a personalised Dairy Milk bar from Cadburys. You can personalise bars from 110g for £4, 200g for £5, 360g for £7 and 850g for £12. So, something to suit all budgets. It’s real easy to do too.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
