Teachers are a big part of our children’s lives. They spend a significant amount of time with students, shaping their education and even serving as role models. A good teacher can make all the difference, inspiring a lifelong interest in math, reading, science, or learning in general. Whether it’s at the beginning of the school year or after a parent-teacher conference, go the extra mile to build a relationship with your child’s teacher. Passion Lilie has several teacher gift ideas to help you show your appreciation.
Choosing a gift for a teacher can be tough. You want to show your gratitude, but in many cases you need to be careful not to overspend—otherwise, the teacher may not be able to accept your gift. Follow these tips when considering teacher gift ideas:
Now that you know what to look for in a gift, consider these teacher gift ideas from Passion Lilie.
Passion Lilie sells a variety of recycled greeting cards that are perfect for thanking a teacher on any occasion. Add it to the rest of your gift, or fill it with thoughtful words from yourself and your child to make a perfect, low-cost gift all on its own. Even better, these cards are made of recycled (and cleaned!) elephant waste, making them eco-friendly and part of an important cause: improving the treatment of elephants in Sri Lanka. If that weren’t enough, each card is hand block printed by a young adult with autism or a severe handicap in India, and the proceeds help pay for their education and ongoing training. Learn more about our recycled cards and give a gift that keeps on giving.
Between all the folders, worksheets, school supplies, and other miscellaneous items, teachers end up carrying a lot of things from work to home and back. Wouldn’t it be nice if each time they reached for their bag, they were reminded of a student or parent who cared? This tote is colorful and attractive, while its measurements are large enough to fit standard papers and folders. It can also function as a reusable grocery bag for environmentally friendly teachers on the go.
Many teachers are more concerned with helping others than themselves. Treat them to something just for themselves: a bright, beautiful, lightweight scarf. With its refreshing mint color and gorgeous mixed patterns, the Mint Paisley Scarf is a great way to give a little TLC to a teacher.
