Top 5 Teacher Cards and Gifts

Top 5 teacher Gifts

Top 5 Teacher Cards and Gifts. It is the time of year, where the run down to the school holidays is well underway.

So whilst the frenzy is happening with the last drive for squeezing out every last drop of education, it’s time to spare a thought for our hardworking teachers and assistants. So we have put together a rather splendid list of Top 5 Teacher Cards and Gifts that we think teachers will really appreciate!

Number one of our Top 5 Teacher Cards and Gifts:

The talented ladies at Scamp make some of the most gorgeous gifts and we simply love this laser cut teacher sign.

Teachers are super heroes and this brilliant pennant flag comes with a neon cord and is made from birch plywood. We have had several signs from Scamp and we give our seal of approval for being amazing quality! A great gift idea and only £12.50!

Number Three: 

The Cheeky Food Company are definitely up our street with their splendid offering of food gifts. We love this gift set as an alternative to the mountain of chocolate and body products we know our teacher friends receive. These chutneys available here: 

Are made with the finest Indian ingredients and we cannot wait to try the Ravishing Red Onion Chutney!

Number Four:

We simply love this mug and felt that it might strike a cord with many teachers! Prints In Pyjamas make some really funny and quite cool mugs but this one was our favourite!

Number Five

KimHearts has a fab shop on Etsy and we feel this glass would definitely get some use once the holidays start! We love the sparkly bottom but visions of a large Gin and Tonic spring to mind too!

Lorem Fucking Ipsum – DYP loves swearing!

Lorem Fucking Ipsum - DYP loves swearing!

Lorem Fucking Ipsum – DYP loves swearing! – And we know you do to!  And we’re in good company.  A design company has come up with some super swearing text especially for designers.

Have you ever looked at a website and seen a load of strange Latin text?  It doesn’t make sense.  What’s it all about?  Well it’s basically dummy text.  Or what designers know as “placeholder text”.  Designers use it to fill a page to see what the layout looks like.  Sometimes they forget to take it out.

The text designers us is called Lorem Ipsum.  The use of Lorem Ipsum text goes back 5 centuries, when it was used by the early printers.  The original Lorem Ipsum is an extract from 2000 year old classical Latin Literature.  The Extremes of Good and Evil by Cicero if you really want to know.

The original Lorem Ipsum goes like this:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

Designers usually just cut and paste it from sources on the internet.  But they should be more careful.  Because some versions have little embarrassing bits of text hidden amongst the Latin.  Next time you find a web page with Lorem Ipsum, have a check through.  See if they unwittingly left in some cheekiness.

So where’s the swearing you ask?  We thought DYP loves swearing?

Well, there’s this. It’s “Placeholder text for people who have some fucking passion!” It’s designed by loremfuckingipsum.com who have created a new placeholder text generator. It’s a lot more interesting than the usual. They’re designers, and they’re bored with Lorem Ipsum. DYP loves swearing, so we love this!

Alternative Lorem Ipsum from loremfuckingipsum.com

So if you need some text to see what your layout will look like, this will do the job.  Just make sure you replace it before sending it to print!

Mind you, we don’t edit out the sweary.   In fact  DYP loves swearing.  If you do too, we’ve got a great selection of cards, and some are super sweary.

Dad You’re Bloody Marvellous – Father’s Day at DYP

Dad You’re Bloody Marvellous - Father's Day at DYP

Dad You’re Bloody Marvellous – Father’s Day at DYP

We never ‘ad Father’s Day in our day…..

Have you ever wondered where or why we even have a Father’s Day?

Here are ten things you never knew about Father’s Day:

  1. Father’s Day was first invented in the USA more than 100 years ago.
  2. There’s two stories about its origins, and they’re not even a marketing ploy! In 1908 360 men, 200 of them fathers, were killed in a mining accident in Fairmont, West Virginia.  Grace Golden Clayton wanted to honour her father and all the other fathers who had died, and with the help of her church, she organised a special Father’s Day.
  3. A couple of years later in 1910 Sonora Louise Smart campaigned for a special holiday to celebrate her own father – who had brought up his large family single handed after being widowed – and all other fathers.
  4. The idea was all rather low key though, and was ridiculed for being silly, undermining the machismo of men, and being nothing more than a commercial opportunity, until it was, ironically, taken up by the New York Associated Men’s Wear Retailers in 1938, when it started to grow legs.
  5. But in 1966, President Lynton Johnson declared the third Sunday in June officially Father’s Day, and people began to take it more seriously as a way of celebrating the role of dad.
  6. By the late 1970s it had started to become popular in the UK, and has been growing ever since, though it’s still not as popular as Mother’s Day.
  7. Not all countries celebrate Father’s Day at the same time of year. In Australia it’s celebrated in September, on the first day of Spring.
  8. In Brazil the second Sunday in August is Father’s Day, in honour of Saint Joachim, father of Mary.
  9. In Germany, Father’s Day is traditionally celebrated with hiking and camping that are basically an excuse for a big piss-up.
  10. In Thailand fathers are celebrated on the birthday of popular King Bhumibol Adulyadej

However, wherever and whenever it’s celebrated, it’s all about honouring fathers.  So for all the time they’ve bailed you out, driven you home, fixed your bike, mopped your tears, and paid off your debts, lets raise a glass or three to our dads!

So celebrate your pops! –  Dad You’re Bloody Marvellous – Father’s Day at DYP

Check out our rather splendid and cheeky collection of Father’s Day cards over at Do You Punctuate?  And celebrate your Dad with our cheeky and fun greetings cards!
