Teacher Appreciation Week: Small Thank You Gifts

After having both jobs, I think teachers and stay-at-home moms are probably the two most unappreciated jobs. They’re like the behind the scenes tech crew on any play or movie: relatively unnoticed by others, but the whole thing would fall apart and/or wouldn’t be as magical without them. The teachers are responsible for educating our future, and in many cases, they spend more hours a day with our children than we do. And, even though we aren’t dressing up to throw “teacher awards” parties with little gold statues, we can still show our appreciation for helping our kids grow.


Since Monday begins teacher appreciation week, here are 5 thoughtful gift ideas to show your gratitude.
