Get an A+ in Teacher Gift Giving

It’s the beginning of the school year for many and I know that there are plenty of things to do. I’m going to share with you some fun and easy gift ideas for teachers to help you quickly check one more thing off of your to-do list!

As the daughter of an elementary school teacher, I was taught at an early age to make sure that I had gifts to give my teachers at the beginning of the school year, on special holidays and throughout the year to simply show appreciation for all that they do.

To this day, I still remember some of my favorite gifts that I helped pick out or created for my teachers, and I’m reminded of how rewarding it felt to see the smiles on their faces. Sure, I was probably giving them some of those gifts because I was being really bad the day before, but let’s focus on the present (literally), people!

Since I’m somewhat of an expert (self-proclaimed, of course) on gifts for teachers, I feel that I should share my wealth of knowledge with you. You’re welcome in advance.

1. BECAUSE OF TEACHERS LIKE YOU, WE WON’T BE AIRHEADS OR DUM-DUMS. THANKS FOR ALL THAT YOU DO TO MAKE US SMARTIES!

One thought on “Get an A+ in Teacher Gift Giving

  1. As a retired elementary school teacher who loved teaching, it was a joy when a student remembered me with a gift and a short note saying how much they had learned in my class, how funny I was, how they liked that I smiled a lot or the special things that I said and quoted me. The huge amount of gifts they gave me at Christmas time warmed my heart. It wasn’t WHAT they gave, it was that they thought of me. The wonderful “end of the school year” notes they wrote to me
    were the best because I knew for sure that at the end of the year there was no point in trying to impress me. The notes my students wrote me at my retirement were wonderful. Kids are GREAT, smart, fun and funny. We need to protect them nuture them, and respect them. After all they are eternal souls.
