The new school year is starting soon, and families across the country are scrambling to get everything in order. Buying clothes, school supplies and presents for teachers. Instead of giving a teacher an apple, I have a few ideas that are much, much better.
For one, think about giving a favorite teacher either from the past school year, or a new teacher, a gift they can actually use on a daily basis. Functional gifts are always the best. This can include a personalized pen and pencil set, a desk set for organization, or anything else they may like and be able to use.
Secondly, think about giving the teacher a timeless gift — something that can be cherished now and in the future. This can be something like a clock, picture frame, or another gift of that nature.
Lastly and most importantly, if you are giving your teacher a gift make sure you don’t give the impression that you are trying to buy grades in any way. This is the absolute worst thing that could happen.
