It might seem far away, but the end of the school year will be here before we know it!
It’s an occasion that can get lost among plans for summer holidays and other end-of-year activities, but it’s certainly an important one. It’s a chance to extend a special “thank you” to the educators and other support staff who make a big impact in our lives.
While thoughtful cards and gift certificates are always appreciated, they’re also nothing out of the ordinary. Today we’re sharing some gift ideas that are sure to stand out from the crowd, thanks to your creativity!
Embroider Buddy® Pillows
Looking to give a gift that’s not only memorable and long-lasting, but also functional? Look no further than our home embroidables, specifically our line of plush pillows!
Personalizing these pillows couldn’t be simpler – just remove the pillow pod inside and you’ll have easy access for embroidery. Embroider Buddy® Pillows come in six different stylish colours, so you’re sure to find an excellent match for the teachers on your list.
Don’t limit yourself to embroidery! Screen printing can be another great way to personalize your pillows and turn them into a sentimental piece of home décor.
Embroider Buddy® Stuffed Animals
Buddies are an all-time favourite way to say thanks. Cute, cuddly and customizable, our Embroider Buddy® line stands out in a way no other gifts of appreciation can!
Choose a Buddy that best suits your teacher. Buddies like Okie Buddy Owl and Elford Elephant Buddy are known for their wisdom and for handing down years of knowledge to new generations. LeRoy Leopard Buddy is revered for his bravery and leadership, and Monty Monkey Buddy is all about having fun!
