The Best Gifts For Teachers At The End Of The School Year
The end of term is fast approaching, mamas, and along with booking summer camps and filling suitcases for holidays, our thoughts are turning to how we can possibly thank the teachers and teaching assistants that have taught our little ones over the past year (imagine, over 20 kids to keep under control and interested – these people deserve medals!). If you are looking for a little inspo, we’ve done the hard work and trawled Dubai for teacher’s gifts that get a 10 out of 10.
Perfect for both male and female teaching staff, a voucher for the truly luxurious Talise Ottoman Spa at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray will be the perfect way for them to unwind this summer. With separate female and male spas, they can expect first-rate treatments (which definitely come with the Sassy Mama seal of approval – the Hammam is literally out of this world!), a salt water pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, saunas, and plenty of areas indoors to relax. The classroom will feel a million miles away! Why not club together with the rest of the mamas and get them the ultimate ‘Ottoman Escape’?! Four blissful hours of pampering and the perfect way to reset after the school term.
You can’t go wrong with this one, mamas – whether you want to go it alone or join forces with the other parents in the class, treat your teacher to an Emaar Gift Card and not only will she/he be able to pop into any of the Dubai Mall shops and buy him/herself something to remember the class by but also use the card at any of the dining outlets in Dubai Mall or Dubai Marina Mall, at The Gold & Diamond Park (if she/he fancies a little bling) Vida Hotels, Rove Hotels, At The Top Burj Khalifa and loads more too. Add a personal touch by getting the kids to draw a little card and you’ve got it covered.
It takes some organisation to be a teacher – and one thing that will definitely come in handy over the next school year is a super stylish notebook to jot down their ‘Inspiration & Ideas’. Covetable British brand Smythson has beautiful notebooks playfully stamped with fun titles, bound in textured-leather and filled with the brand’s gilt-edged ‘featherweight’ pages that have been rigorously tested to hold the ink of a fountain pen. Housed in a blue box, it makes a wonderful gift for your sassy teachers.

Give your teacher a five star rating with a personalised poster! This iconic print will be cherished for years – get the kids to let you know what they’d like the poster to say, then order (framed or unframed) and watch their faces light up on delivery.
From AED 190 available from www.notonthehighstreet.com
Chances are that those teachers and their assistants are feeling pretty tired by the end of term (honestly, how they manage that many kids for that many hours is literally beyond us…). Treat them to a few coffees with a gift card from one of your fave cafes to say ‘thanks a latte’ for everything!
