It’s that time of the year when many clubs are celebrating the years achievements and are almost at the end of competition season. It’s also an incredibly busy time of the year with work and school functions. It is also a wonderful time to let those around us know how much we appreciate them and the part they have played in our lives throughout the year.
Frame a photograph or meaningful quote as a keepsake of the year that was. Create your own, purchase from etsy or download and print. One site that offers free printable art is Quotes Gram.
2. Growing Gifts
Fresh flowers can be purchased from a florist or from markets. A pot plant may last longer and may be a more affordable option.
3. Gift Certificate
How about a gift certificate to a department store, beauty therapist, restaurant or even a cinema?
4. Putting Pen to Paper
Letting someone know you appreciate them does not need to cost a fortune. A beautiful handwritten card expressing your thanks will show that you are grateful. Be specific about what your teacher has done for you. Let them know how you have impacted them. Or perhaps you could share your favourite memories of the year including lessons learned.
5. Active Wear
What might your teacher need in the new year that could be useful? Items like a good quality water bottle or new active wear are essential for a physie teacher.
6. When We All Chip In
Perhaps a teacher has been with you for a significant amount of time? Your club might like to contribute together to purchase a fitbit, a watch or a piece of jewellery to recognise an individual’s commitment and achievement.
Another great idea if everyone is chipping in is to purchase or put together a hamper or pamper pack. After a year of teaching classes, what physie teacher wouldn’t enjoy bubble bath, chocolates or a bottle of champagne? Consider a gourmet hamper that could include treats for the festive season.
8. Photo book
If you have access to a range of photographs you could put together a photo album of the years memories. If not, consider doing so for the upcoming physie year. Include images of your teacher in class, candid images of her preparing her students at competitions as well as portrait and team shots. Snapfish,Vistaprint, Officeworks or Harvey Norman offer deals on photo books regularly. For something extra special visit MILKbooks or Zno.
