People often misinterpret the job of a teacher. While this job does tend to come with the luxury of being off on the weekends, during the week, teachers put forth more effort and emotion than most people do. Because teachers help shape the future of our children, it is very important that they receive the appreciation and respect that they deserve, especially being that a large percentage of them are underpaid. Let’s take a quick look at three of the best gifts for National Teacher’s Day.
Gift Idea #1: Barnes & Noble Gift Card
Sure, teachers spend their days reading out of textbooks to their students, but this doesn’t mean they don’t like to curl up at home on the couch and read a good book. Because each teacher is different, it’s probably a bit difficult for you to pinpoint exactly what type of book he or she likes to read. And because of this, a Barnes & Noble gift card becomes one of the best gifts you can give. You might even find that the teacher spends the gift card on books for his or her students. No matter the way the gift card gets spent, though, you can rest assured the teacher will feel greatly appreciative that you gave it.
Gift Idea #2: A Beautiful Bouquet
Not many presents can lighten someone’s heart like a fresh bouquet of flowers can! Get your teacher a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers, tulips, roses, or sunflowers. Yellow is a great theme for teacher’s flowers, bright, giving light to the classroom and bringing a pleasant scent to the teacher’s desk. Zeidlers can get you set up quickly with a beautiful custom bouquet just for your teacher!
Gift Idea #3: A Simple Card
Hey, times are tough. Everyone knows that, especially teachers. They fully understand that not everyone can afford to go out and spend money on a gift for a teacher. And believe it or not, they are just as greatly appreciative when they receive a simple card as they are when they receive a gift card or message book. The important thing is that you show them you care and that you appreciate what they do. After all, it is the thought that counts.
