Celebrating Teachers with Shutterfly

Spring has sprung and the end of the school year is coming into sight. It’s not too early to think about acknowledging your child’s teacher with a thoughtful gift, and Shutterfly can help you with an abundance of ideas.

Using Shutterfly does not mean you need photos of the class to make a one-of-a-kind gift. Our beautiful stationery collection is a unique, personalized way to give a gift of teacher that will be sure to be used. Notepads, notecards with and without photos, and calling cards are all a great choices.

If you have just one great class shot (or a posed shot with kids holding letters that say T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U) you can check out our photo gifts. Placing a fun class photo on a mug, mousepad, canvas tote, or notebook makes a fun and practical acknowledgement that will be put to good use.

If you’ve got a lot of photos (or know a parent that does) or are in the photo taking mood, photo books are the obvious choice. You can choose to tell the story of the year in yearbook format – highlighting activities, outings, and special occasions.

Another idea is to have each child profiled individually through a portrait, piece of artwork, a note to the teacher, a series of interview questions (What was your favorite book of the year? What do you want to be when you grow up? What did you like best about your teacher?) or even a recipe.

Finally, if your teacher is the class photographer, then get them a Shutterfly gift certificate to put to good use with their own memories.

What other ideas do you have for using Shutterfly to show appreciation to teachers and others at school. Share your ideas with us.

    Shutterfly has been my go to place for special teacher gifts every year. I have made photo books, photo mugs, and mouse pads for my children’s teachers over the years. Now with the addition of personal note pads, calling cards, and note cards you really cannot go wrong. You have to love Shutterfly for making personalized gift given easy.

more about Lara H

By way of introduction, I’m LaraH. I’m a long-time customer of Shutterfly (beginning in January 2000 with the birth of my first daughter) and now an employee (since mid-2004). I’ve been making photo books since we launched the product in June 2005, but in that time it has evolved from a work responsibility, to a hobby, and dare I say passion. Most of the books I make revolve around my children and our family journeys, so I thought it was a fitting way for you to get to know me better to see “ My First Photo Book.” http://community.shutterfly.com/gallery/post/start.sfly?postId=/gallery/1/post/GMGDBgyYNGLdg5ZgLl7Adq. It’s the story of my daughters’ first few years, told mostly through pictures.
