Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas – Teacher Appreciation Week!
In the US, the first week of May is Teacher Appreciation Week. But as a teacher, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, I love, love, love, gifts anytime! Some of these teacher appreciation gift ideas came from my own students. Those little kiddos are so creative! I personally think that gift giving says more about the student than the teacher.
Some students’ ability to show appreciation comes from a love of learning and a genuine compassion for others. Other student learn compassion from great parents who show their children how to be loving by example.
This is not to say that Teachers don’t deserve to have a special week to celebrate them. I love Teacher Appreciation Week! Teacher’s spend a lot of time enriching the minds and lives of their students.
If you, as a parent, were required to teach your children at home during quarantine, then you have a small taste of what teachers do on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. Of course most teachers love what they do, and are happy to do the job without any accolades, but who doesn’t love a little recognition!
We have created some of our favorite Teacher appreciation gift ideas in this blog post and hopefully, you could find something here to use for your child’s teacher or at least get your creative juices flowing.
