Teachers play a very important role in a child’s life. A child spends significant amount of time at school and teacher’s definitely play a very important role in making the tiny sprout bloom in to a flowering plant.
Teacher’s day is an occasion to celebrate and acknowledge the effort teacher’s put in. It is a day to show our love and affection to our teachers.
In India, September 5th is celebrated as teacher’s day. Here are some lovely gifts your kids could give to their teachers on teacher’s day. They also make great back to school gifts and end of school year gifts
1. Spa Vouchers
I am sure most teachers would love this. It would also make a great gift that all the students in a class can together present to their teachers. Most of the time they are standing or running behind kids, a day at the spa would definitely re-energize them.
2. Gift vouchers
If you are not sure what your teacher would like, give her a gift voucher.
3. Essential oils
As some one who has recently started using essential oils, I can say they make a wonderful gift.
If you know the kind of books your teacher loves to read, you can get her those books or you could buy her a set of children’s books. They are always spending money on children’s books and are on the look out for good books they can read to their class.
5. Handmade gifts
Any gift that has a personalized touch makes the receiver feel loved. Let your kids make something special for their teacher like this lovely flower bouquet
Your child can also make a card by painting with q-tips. Read instruction here
6. Personalized Notes
Prepare a set of questions about your child’s teacher and let your kid answer them. The answers are sure to bring a smile on the teacher’s face. Last year a group of parents got together and made all the kids in my child’s class write why they love their teacher in a small note, stuck a passport size picture of the child and dropped in a jar. The teacher’s had a blast reading the funny, heartfelt answers and were left teary eyed
7. Volunteer to take a class
My kids studied in a a Montessori school and some of the parents volunteered to run the classes for a day. Each of us took different responsibilities like circle time, art and craft, book reading etc and the teachers were happy to relax and appreciated our effort.
