The end of the school year is inching close, so be sure you don’t forget the special teacher in your child’s life when the bell rings for the final time this school year. With all the time and dedication he or she has spent with the children in your child’s class, a token of thanks for all their hard work and care will be appreciated wholeheartedly.
If you’re not sure what to get your child’s teacher, here are 4 ideas any teacher would be sure to enjoy. With varied price points and interests covered, surely one or more of these ideas would be perfect as an end-of-the-year gift. Teachers are so important in the lives of their students, and a gift to express your gratitude will be gratefully accepted with a smile.
A Gift Card to a Craft Supply Store
Often times, school budgets don’t provide enough for teachers to have the classroom supplies on hand that would benefit their students and enhance their lesson plans. A gift certificate to a school supply or craft supply store would help relieve the teacher of using their own money for such items. No matter how much you’re able to afford, a little goes a long way when it comes to how teachers can utilize these items to make their classroom a better place.
A Gift-of-the-Month Club Subscription
A gift-of-the-month club membership is the gift that keeps on giving. Each month, the teacher will remember your thoughtfulness and generous gesture. If he or she is a foodie, opt for a steak-of-the-month club or a monthly wine club subscription. There are plenty of monthly beauty product clubs, pet-lovers clubs, health food snack box clubs, and coffee clubs. Ask around and find out your child’s teacher’s tastes and interests and choose accordingly.
Tickets to the Movies
Teachers work hard and their job is all-consuming, so some time off in a fantasy world is time well-spent and surely needed. Movie prices are higher than ever, so a gift of movie tickets would be a nice treat for the teacher to enjoy. You can also splurge for movie snacks as well. You can get a voucher at the theater itself or online. A little time to sit back and relax is just what a hard-working teacher needs in order to unwind and de-stress.
A Homemade Breakfast Basket
If you have a knack for baking and creating mouth-watering treats, fix up a homemade breakfast basket for your child’s teacher. The personal touch and belly-filling goodies will be most appreciated. Bake some blueberry and bran muffins and buttermilk biscuits, fill jars with homemade jellies and jams, make a container of whipped honey butter, and bake up some homemade granola with nuts and raisins. Fill the rest of the basket with store-bought bagels and cream cheese, fresh fruit, juices, and a variety of tea bags. A nice wicker basket from a craft store or a simple picnic basket will do the trick to bring all the treats to your child’s teacher on the last day of school. He or she will have a feast the next morning… if they can wait that long before diving in!
Teachers deserve our heartfelt thanks in so many ways, and a thoughtful gift is a sign of true appreciation.
