Teachers are unquestionably some of the most important people in our children’s lives. Not only do they teach our children, but they love and nourish them every day, just as we do. Teachers don’t choose this career path for the salary or the recognition. They do it because they love our kids, and they love helping them grow. It’s hard to show them how much we truly appreciate them, but these gifts are great ways to express our gratitude to some of our greatest heroes.
Amazon Gift Card
Most teachers end up spending an extraordinary amount of money on classroom supplies – usually out of their own pocket. Why not give them a gift card to offset some of that cost? They will truly appreciate the gesture, and they can choose to use it on supplies for the next year, or to buy something special for themselves.
Who doesn’t like to go to the movies? With supplies that you can find at most dollar stores, you can create a movie basket that will be sure to put a smile on your little one’s teacher’s face.

A quick and simple, yet incredible touching gift is a journal with a special message written inside by your child.
