Teacher’s Appreciation Day is May 5th this year. Professors are important people. They can make a big impact on your life, perhaps one that will change the way you view something forever. It’s great to celebrate your professors. These’re 7 gift ideas to give you some inspiration.
1. You Can’t Go Wrong with Homemade Cookies
Homemade cookies or any homemade goodies for that matter, are always well received. Who doesn’t love the surprise of a fresh baked treat? It would certainly make my day. Another bonus to this gift idea is that it’s very economical. You can honor your favorite professor without spending a lot of money.
2. A Fruit Arrangement Makes a Lovely Gift
If your professor is one that strives toward living a healthy lifestyle then a fruit arrangement could be a lovely gift. It’s a treat that doesn’t break their diet. You can purchase one premade or make one yourself. Fruit can be made into beautiful arrangements, due in part to the beautiful bright colors of various fruits. You may be so pleased with your arrangement that you’re tempted to keep it for yourself.
3. A Gift Basket of Snacks and Treats is Fun to Receive
A gift basket is fun to receive and there’re so many different ideas you can use to make one. Snacks and treats are one idea that you could go with. Simply fill your basket with tempting goodies for your professor to enjoy. It’s helpful if you know some of their favorite snacks but even if you don’t, you’re bound to choose a few things they’ll like. A variety of different snacks makes it interesting and fun.
4. Give a Fun Accessory
An accessory is something fun to give as a gift for Teacher’s Appreciation Day. You could choose a scarf, a pair of sunglasses, a hat or a tie. There’re even more options you could choose. You may find this idea is easier because you’ve had the chance to observe your professor to see how they dress. You’ve got an idea of their style which can be helpful when you’re shopping for them.
5. It’s the Perfect Time to Give a Potted Plant
If you don’t feel you know your professor well but you still want to honor them, this’s a good option. A potted plant is a great choice to show your appreciation. It’s a nice gift but not too personal. It’s also something that fits everyone. You can go for one that’s full of greenery or one that’s more bright and colorful.
6. A Gift Card to Their Favorite Coffee Shop Could Work Wonderfully
If your professor comes in every morning with a cup of coffee in hand then this choice could be the right one for you to choose. Getting a gift card to your favorite coffee shop is always a treat, isn’t it? I know I love to receive this as a gift. If they’re not a coffee drinker, there’re other gift card options. You could do a gift card to the movies or a bookstore.
7. A Thank You Card is Always a Treasure to a Professor
When teachers or professors are asked what their favorite gifts are, it’s often letters or thank you cards that they’ve received through the years. A thank you card is a great way to express your gratitude for the place they’ve held in your life. It can be as wordy or to the point as you like. It’s up to you. As long as you’re expressing appreciation, you can’t go wrong.
