Gift Ideas for Exceptional Teachers

Exceptional teachers make a difference every day with our children. How can we show them our thanks?

Written by: Jen Block

Exceptional teachers make a difference every day with our children. How can we show them our thanks? It’s not about how much you spend, it is the thought and creativity that teachers truly appreciate. Here are 5 of my favorite quick, fun and easy gifts to put together:

  1. Spa Day — wrap in a cute face cloth; scented lotion, foot cream, candle and rubber ducky!
  2. Summer Fun — fill a sand bucket with bubbles, sunblock, Frisbee, beach ball and gold fish snacks!
  3. Movie basket — in a popcorn bucket, place microwave popcorn, assorted movie candy, diet soda, and two passes to a movie theatre.
  4. Delicious treats — make your favorite/seasonal signature dessert and have the child decorate the container.
  5. Tea/coffee time — a tea/coffee pot with mug, herbal teas, flavored coffees and a some biscotti’s.

Like we instill to our children, it is the thought that counts.

Happy holidays!
