Thankbox example of teacher Christmas card

Christmas cards for teachers. An annual ritual that has stood the test of time, yet is often testing of family time. Traditionally involving boxes of small cards, lining the kids up in a production line to write the same thing in all the cards for all the teachers.

And what to write? Not so short it comes over as a bit ‘doing this because everyone is’. Not so long and personal that the rate of completion on the production line is agonisingly slow. Spare a thought too for the teachers - what do they do with scores of cards when they get home?

There is a better, more sincere and fun way.

With an online group teacher appreciation card everyone can say so much more than ‘Happy Christmas’. The kids and parents can all contribute to the same card for each teacher and make it so much more personal and, ultimately, cherished.

It's so easy to get whole class and all parents to say more than "Happy Christmas" to their favourite teachers. Just one click and you're on the way to letting everyone show their appreciation.

Add personality, charm and character to your card

It’s a dream to add personal messages, videos and pictures. The sky’s the limit for sincere and meaningful content from anyone. Whoever knows the teacher - children, parents, grandparents, the dog (why not if it always gets a fuss at the school gate?) - the whole class and beyond can add:

  • Funny pictures as memories of the school play

  • Video clips from special events held with the teacher

  • Personal recollections that are as warming as a log fire

  • A thank-you for the extra miles teachers went for your kids (or you!)

  • Memorable moments - in writing, on video or as a picture - from school life, maybe Sports Day, a class trip or community projects

  • A sincere appreciation of learning achievements the teacher inspired and coached

  • Messages from individuals or friendship groups - all kids have wonderful selfies with their friends

So much more fun for all

This year there are new Thankbox Christmas backgrounds to choose from to make the card more personal and relevant. And it’ll definitely be more fun for the digitally-savvy future generation. Be totally personal and individual, let the kids character come to the fore - it makes connections and bonds so much more special.

New Thankbox Xmas themes and sample messages

It’s not just the teacher who deserves a wonderful and personal Christmas card from the class. The lunch staff, the caretaker, the coach driver, the head teacher, the lollipop person - anyone who makes a difference to young people’s lives at school deserves a festive dose of gratitude.

Virtual teacher cards = zero waste

There is a huge practical advantage to online group teacher cards over physical cards. You get to save a big chunk of time (no trudging around shops, no repetitive signing, no licking envelopes) at a time of year when family and school time is even more pressured and precious. Plus, there’s no waste - think of our planet 🌎. Thirty or so physical cards all saying the same, thirty or so envelopes straight in the bin, or one virtual card full of personality and precious memories from everyone? Incidentally - at Thankbox we are 100% green energy, zero waste, and plant a tree for every 10th sale 🌲.

And, if you need to send cards to multiple teachers, we save you money with Thankbox Packs.
