- Gifts for a positive start of the morning morning: Give the gift of a small blender or coffee maker for the classroom. I would also include some smoothie fixings such as protein powder and a recipe book or frozen smoothie packs for a breakfast on the run that he or she can keep in the staffroom freezer.
- Gas card/Grocery card or Local grub card
- A lovely massage or spa day
- A gym, museum or other membership he or she can use for her summer break
- A housecleaning service
- Cooking lessons or a week of meal deliveries
- A mini fridge and a stock of waters and soda for her classrooms
Those gifts are all amazing and thoughtful, but can get costly if you have a large family or are working on a budget. So we wanted to include some low cost options that will really make your teacher’s day.
- Make a meal or a a picnic.
- Offer to make a meal or “cater” a date night.
- Create a scrapbook or frame a thank you note from your child.
- Frame class photos with a note or a handmade piece of artwork from your child.
- Offer to babysit his or her kids and get tickets to a local movie or pack a picnic for Cinema in the Park.
- Create a summer guide starting with a thank you note of free things that he or she can do during the summer.
- Make a bath for her – using a recipe of epsom salts, essential oil and other goodies and wrap in a fun way in a mason jar. I often do this for holiday gifts and housewarmings and it is less than 4 dollars a jar! Wow!

Whatever you chose to give, from a monetary gift to a warm letter, just make sure you write your gratitude down to a teacher who has taught your son or daughter this year.
