Teacher Thank You Gifts
Team up with other students and families to make a photo collage message. This can then be posted on the school website, if possible, or on social media.
Send a digital or e-card. Perfect if you have your teacher's email address.
Make a personal thank you video and send it to your teacher via email.
Send a voice recording to your favourite teacher.
Create a hand-made work of art, scan it and send it to your teacher.
Email a gift card from Amazon or Netflix. My son's teacher has signed up to Netflix now he has more time on his hands. The students send him recommendations on what to watch!
Purchase a gift card from one of the local shops. Whether it be from the local supermarket or farm shop, it is sure to be appreciated.
Gift card from one of the local restaurants. Any gift cards from local places not only support the community but are sure to be appreciated by your teacher.
Personalized Teacher Stationery.
Purchase a neat set of stationery for teacher. You know it is something he or she will always use and is suitable for both genders. You could even purchase a set of stamps, notecards and envelopes and personalize it yourself.
Teacher thank you note.
A good old fashioned thank you note or thank you teacher poem takes only a moment to write but gives enormous pleasure. If you are stuck for words go here for teacher thank you notes and thank you poems to teachers. A nice idea would be to frame a teacher poem and the whole class sign it.
Purchase gift vouchers from Amazon. You can buy pretty much everything on Amazon nowadays. Teacher will be spoilt for choice. You could also make your own gift voucher card. This is the top idea because of social distancing due to Covid-19.
If all the parents club together, you can buy a case of wine or subscribe to a "wine of the month" club. Your teacher will be more than pleased to get a good bottle every month for the next year.
How about 2 tickets to a sporting event, a musical or play?
Teacher's Homemade Gift Basket.
If your teacher has a hobby he or she may appreciate a gift basket or container packed with special goodies. A gift basket is a great homemade teacher appreciation gift.
If your teacher likes cooking, gardening, going to the movies, or travelling, fill a gift basket with appropriate items. Find more homemade gift basket ideas here!
Personalized Teacher's Tea Towel.
Buy a light coloured tea towel and some fabric paints or pens. Depending on their age, the children can make handprints, draw a self-portrait, or sign their names. This could be an individual or class project.
Make a Class Cookbook for Teacher.
This is something my friend's daughter and her whole class undertook when they left school. The idea is that each child produces his or her own page with a favourite recipe, a drawing or photo, and a special message to the teacher. Once complete, laminate the pages, punch and put into a folder.
