Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

Teachers are great mentors, friends, and confidants. They inculcate the right values and discipline in us and mould us to take on the challenges of life. They transform us from an innocent prancing child into a responsible adult. By building our characters, they play a major part in the stories of our success and achievements. Though we do not understand their value during our developing years, it is only when we complete our schooling or college do we realize how significant they had been in shaping our opinions, thoughts, and entire personality. We owe a lot to them and no words are sufficient to describe their contribution. However, we can express our gratitude and appreciation for our teachers through thoughtful gifts. Even then, gifts would not suffice the contribution of teachers in our lives. But, they serve as a token of appreciation and gratitude. Browse on further for some great ideas on teacher appreciation gifts.

Gift Baskets
If the entire class has decided to shower their respect and gratitude for the teacher, you can create a gift basket with all sorts of goodies that your teacher loves. He/She is bound to love reading since he/she is into such a profession. Take this opportunity as an advantage of buying novels and story books that your teacher would love to read. Additionally, you can put in homemade chocolates, pens, pen stands, ties, small cards, hand cream or moisturizer, key chains, jewelry, and mugs.

A Large Card
Buying a huge card from a gift store and asking all the students to sign and pen down their thoughts and wishes for the teacher would make an inexpensive yet highly treasured gift. The efforts that have been made by his/her students to show your love are enough to melt his/her heart.

Cookie Jars
It was your teacher who first introduced you to cookies to prevent you from crying when your mommy left you at the nursery. It's time to repay back the love, affection, and kindness that your teacher showered upon you. Bake some cookies at home and wrap them individually in colorful aluminum foils. Attach a 'thank you' note with each wrapped cookie. Place all the wrapped cookies in a jar and present it to your teacher.

Open up your childhood scrapbook that your best friend had gifted you in school and you are bound to laugh your heart out. Such is the image of a scrapbook which refreshes your memories instantly. Take your teacher out for a lunch or dinner and click some pictures as special moments. Get the pictures developed and paste them in the scrapbook. Collect all old photographs of your teacher during school times. Divide the scrapbook into two parts: old times and new days. Paste the old snaps in the old times section while the recently captured in the new days section. Write down some special and memorable words in his/her honor and surprise him/her with the scrapbook.

Personalized Choices
Get your teacher's name embossed or imprinted on coffee mugs, T-shirts, or daily journals which will remind him/her of you whenever your gift comes handy. Besides, you can even decorate a show box or flowerpot with your teacher's name neatly stamped on it. Your teacher can use it to store special notes, cards, and gifts received throughout the year.
