Show your teachers just how much you care—‘tis the season,
after all! Monday marks the beginning of Teachers’ Appreciation Week, five
whole days for students to shower their favorite educators with thoughtful
words and sweet prezzies. Remember: The best gifts come from the heart, not the
pocketbook, so get creative, chicas!
A homemade treat. No
teacher will say no to a batch of gooey brownies, your mom’s signature
snickerdoodles or some tasty chocolate bark. One thing to note: Before you
bake, be certain of any allergies or eating restrictions, like a peanut allergy,
diabetes or veganism.
A remember-us-always calendar (or at least through next year!). Websites like Snapfish.com and
Zazzle.com allow you to completely customize a calendar with photos, special
holidays and cute sayings. Leave a bit of your class behind next year with fave
snapshots, inside jokes and few totally bizarre days to call your own.
A potted plant. We
love herb garden trios and gorgeous spring flowers. Try painting the pot with
chalkboard paint and throwing in a packet of chalk. Get your classmates’
autographs and gift your plant away. So cute!
A gift card from the class. Quietly ask everyone to donate a dollar or two to the gift card fund.
Together, pick a spot your teacher loves to shop. Starbucks and Barnes and
Noble are perennial faves, but if she loves funky jewelry or fun shoes, a gift
card to a local boutique or DSW will show just how thoughtful you are.
A school year scrapbook. Print off some pictures of you and your classmates taken during the
school year, paste in doodles of funny moments and ask your crew to write a few
paragraphs on what they loved or will remember the most.
What are you doing for your fave teacher
