Teacher Appreciation Week Gift ideas

Unique and useful gift for teacher

As another school year is coming to an end, it’s time to express appreciation for what teachers do for our children – after all, your child’s class teacher is one of the most important adults in your kid’s life for the entire school year. Next week, May 6th through May 10th, 2013 is Teacher Appreciation week.

Most educators will modestly tell you that the best gift for teachers is seeing their students succeed.  But if you want to give them a gift, we have a few ideas for you. A gift for a teacher doesn’t have to be expensive. A handmade note, a craft, or a small gift for $10-$15 – whatever fits your budget. In fact, a “Thank you” note is the #1 gift teachers would love to receive – it’s good to know they are appreciated.

Keep in mind that there are some gifts you may want to avoid – like trinkets, candles, lotion, mugs, and “apple for the teacher” store bought items. If you don’t want to add to a pile of gifts that teachers may have little use for or have received too many of, a $10-$15 gift card to the teacher’s favorite store or a $5-$10 Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Tropical Smoothie Cafe gift card along with a “Thank you” note will be gladly received. Want to be a little more creative with gift giving and need a few more Teacher Appreciation Week Gift ideas? Consider these neat stamps from FishCakes on Etsy – teachers will find these stamps useful and very unique – and, most likely, they don’t have a set of these just yet! A set of 4 stamps is $16.50 plus $2.25 for Shipping in the US. For just under $20, you can give a gift that will save an educator some time when they grade students homework and will put smiles on students’ faces.
