May 8th is National Teacher’s Day. Who was your favorite teacher of all time when you were in school? I remember. Mine was my history teacher from high school, Ms. Ruggiero! We all tend to forget to show appreciation towards those amazing teachers but, you can plan ahead (moms and dads) because there are many ways to say thank you for Teachers’ Day this year!

Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing! A simple thank you note is the easiest and most honest way to make their day. Or, Kids can make handmade cards or pictures saying thank you. Handmade gifts show that you actually put some time and thought into it.

If you want to be more traditional, flowers are the next best thing because they brighten up even the messiest desk! Another great item would be a Personalized Teacher Coffee Mug due to the fact that most teachers’ need to caffeinate to keep up with the class! Lastly, something that will make even the most mundane part of their job feel special would be an Engraved Silver Plated Pen considering all teachers need to mark papers and grade tests!

Of course, it’s a lot of fun to go off the traditional path too. You can get the class to chip in to get him or her something really nice like a cashmere wrap for the cold classroom, a unique experience like a cooking class for her down time, or something trendy like a Kindle Fire. Definitely check with your school policy before going in on a high ticket item as some schools don’t allow gifts over a certain dollar amount.

Most of all, be sure you take some time on Teachers’ Day to say ‘Thank you’ to all of the teachers’ who have inspired you to learn more and be more! Without them, we wouldn’t be who we are today.
