You may want to give a gift to a teacher to show your appreciation, but what should you give? A quick Amazon book promo code is certainly a thoughtful gift, but it can be quite cold-spirited. Teachers are truly grateful for your support, but some common gifts actually cause challenges for them. Knickknacks have always been popular, but think about the logistics. If 10 children per year gave a gift, in just four years of teaching there would be 40 knickknacks to display. And “World’s Best Teacher” items can feel rather pretentious to actually use. Scarves and other clothing items make a teacher feel pressure to wear them in order to avoid hurting a child’s feelings, yet the item may not be the teacher’s style. Here are teacher gift ideas to show your appreciation and avoid putting any pressure on the teacher to wear, display, or store.
