If there was ever a time to send an appreciation gift for your kids teacher now is officially the time! After months of homeschooling we fully realize and appreciate all that they do for our children and even for us; the parents.
While these days we’d love to gift them once a month, the two most common times of year when we’re all scrambling to find the right present for them is (1) during the Christmas holiday season in December and (2) at the end of the year just in time for graduation (typically May or June). Regardless of the time of year there’s one important thing to remember; they don’t want anything with an apple on it.
Most teachers are totally amazing superhero-like individuals helping to shape our kids into amazing human beings. Every. Day. So, if you’re looking to send an individual gift along, or are pooling together for one large gift (Thank God for Venmo!), we’ve picked some gifts that they’ll actually love. Whether it’s for their classroom, or at home (we’re looking at you wine basket), there’s a little something for every type of teacher.
