My daughter, 18, is about to leave school and wants to buy her form tutor a present. This teacher really helped her over many years and a bottle of wine doesn’t seem enough. What, if anything, would be appropriate – what do teachers like to receive?

Nearly one third of our work is made possible because of people remembering Diabetes UK in their Will. They make a huge difference to people living with all types of diabetes.

Courses start at £150 for a ten week term including an underwater photoshoot and a full welcome pack which includes a beautiful sticker book where parents can track their child’s progress with photos and dates of milestones. Head to to find your nearest location.

This super-sweet fabric bouquet is as practical and it is pretty; nestled in the 'flowers' are six pairs of socks and two pairs of scratch mitts.

We understand that your family and loved ones must always come first. All we ask is once you've looked after those closest to you, that you think about leaving a gift towards our work. One day your gift could lead to a cure. What better legacy could you leave to future generations?

For a unique bonding experience that both baby and parents can enjoy, consider a course of Water Babies swimming sessions. The exercises used in teaching babies to swim – gentle rocking, reaching for objects, kicking movements and learning to respond to commands – provide the perfect stimulation for baby’s brain. 

Once baby arrives, it's no secret that mum and dad will struggle to find a moment for themselves for the foreseeable future, so give the gift of quality time with a hamper featuring everything they need for a night in together one the little one has gone to sleep.
