Ways to thank your Teacher

Ways to thank your Teacher

These gifts are perfect ways to thank your teachers for all of their hard work.
Imogen Jeffries

Term is coming to an end and it's time to show some gratitude towards your favourite teacher.

Instead of giving them some stationery, a fancy pen, and - wait for it - a crispy red apple, give something that will grant them time off from the blackboard.

With up to four weeks off for term break, it's a beneficial break for you as a student to re-set the brain drain from the academics, rest up the legs from the athletics, and all together re-focus for the new term to come.

But chances are, your teacher is continuing to work away, formulating lesson plans to fill an entire 2 months worth of curriculum. They play such a crucial role in the development of your academic and social skills - preparing you for the real world, careers, university, and beyond, and that's why you should give them a real treat this break with an experience gift where they can relax, enjoy the outdoors, or go on an adventure. Plus, you will get major brownie points for your thoughtfulness.

We know that experience gifts can be expensive, so we've rounded up our favourite Gifts For Teachers that are well within a student (with a little bit of help from the parents!) $100 budget.
