Finding The Perfect 'Thank You' Gifts For Your Child's Teachers

When thinking about 'thank you' gifts, you should ask yourself: who is one of the most important people in your child's life? Other than family, teachers come in at a close second. A good teacher can shape your child's educational ideas, give him a desire to learn, and even become a friend or counselor when things aren't perfect in his life.

Because of this, it's important to let the teacher know at the end of the year that you appreciate her and all of the effort she put into teaching your child. And what better way to express those feelings than with a 'thank you' gift. Just visit any school on the last day of the year and you'll likely find the parents carrying gift-wrapped boxes, bags full of warm store-bought pastries, home-made cakes and baskets stuffed with goodies.

But how do you know what to give? After all, you probably don't know the teacher outside of the classroom, so you won't be privy to her hobbies and personal interests. Based on that, you'll have to find the perfect 'Thank You' gift!

Here are a few suggestions.

First, everyone knows that apples are for teachers, so you can look for cute 'thank you' gift items that feature apples. You could buy apple shaped accessories for her desk at school, apple dishtowels and pot holders for her kitchen, or even a straw basket filled with delicious red and green apples.

If you want to do something original, think about 'thank you gifts' that focus on pampering. Who doesn't like to be spoiled? Gifts bought from bath and body shops, such as creams, bath beads, fragrances, and powders will delight just about any teacher. Don't forget to wrap them in beautiful paper, tied with a luxurious bow!

Food is always a great 'thank you' gift idea when you just don't know what else to give. You can make your child's teacher something yourself'such as your specialty homemade cherry pie - or you can select or custom order something special for the teacher. Other ideas are baskets full of crackers and cheese, fruit baskets, or a pretty container filled with gourmet coffee or tea.

Another great 'thank you' gift for a teacher is a gift certificate. You can purchase a certificate from her favorite restaurant (this one may take some asking around in order to determine what it is), a specialty clothing shop or a bookstore. (All teachers love to read!)

Want a 'thank you' gift for the teacher that will make her feel warm and fuzzy all over? Why not make a donation in her name to the public library or literacy program? You can get a certificate that will tell her just how and when the donation was made, and then enclose it in a pretty envelope.
Whatever 'thank you' gift you decide on your child's teacher, don't forget to include the thank you note! Tell her how much you appreciate her. She just may like this part of the gift most of all!

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
