Being a teacher is a hard job no matter the circumstances. But when Covid hit and teachers were expected to still provide the same type of quality education and care that they normally would within a climate that was completely foreign to them, a teacher’s true skills of compassion, adaptability, and patience was forced to shine through over the last year and a half of school. With school going completely virtual and both students and teachers having to navigate a new world of online learning that had never been seen before, to schools going back in person only partially, teachers, students, parents, and everyone, have been tested. Nonetheless, teachers continued dedication to our students, and their willingness to reevaluate their whole ideals and ideas of teaching within a blink of an eye, makes their deserving of a gift even more valid as this Covid-affected year comes to an end. To show some appreciation for your teachers this year and all of the hard work they have put in to continuing to supply a thoughtful education, here are a few simple and easy gift ideas.
First and foremost, if you, or your child, are in middle school or high school, a simple handwritten note within a card can act as a gift if given to one of your favorite teachers. Often times, materialistic items are exciting and fun, but they often lack emotional attachment and may be shoved into a cabinet or thrown away after they have been used. A handwritten note is something that can be cherished and held on to because of the emotional attachments and meanings that inherently come with it. By spelling out to a teacher that their work, time, and effort is valued and being noticed, can be all the appreciation and reassurance that a teacher needs to continue their grand efforts. Sometimes the sentimental gifts are the best gifts.
Many teachers love their tea or coffee and can be seen perusing their classrooms in the early morning hours with a tumbler in their hand indulging in the hot caffeine. Buying a teacher a customized mug for their drink of choice can be a fun way to show your appreciation by indicating your notice of the small things that make up their teaching, as well as adding some character into your gift with a design that suits their personality or adorning the mug with an inside joke between the teacher and the student. Often times some of the best gifts are the ones that can be used every day and can be added to a daily routine.
Being a teacher means that you are responsible for a lot. Whether it be setting up lessons for the next day, remembering important meetings, school activities, or simply things within their personal life, there are a lot of important events, and other students’ lives, that they must keep organized. Therefore, having a cute and fun planner that helps in detailing out everything that must be done, is imperative for a calm work environment. Especially sense the school year is coming to a close, buying your teacher a nice planner for the next school year will undoubtedly be appreciated as everyone can benefit from having somewhere to organize their thoughts. Teachers are extremely busy people and have a lot on their plates, gifting them something that will aid in decluttering that plate will undeniably be enjoyed and used thoroughly throughout the next school year.
As was mentioned, the school year is coming to a close, if not, already ended. With that in mind, both students and teachers alike are in need of a break and a time to recuperate and refresh for the next year. Therefore, teachers are probably looking forward to having some moments of relaxation centered around themselves, and themselves only; teachers are probably looking forward to a little bit of “me time”. Considering that TLC is all about curating perfect moments of “me time” with their candles, gifting your teacher with one of TLC’s luxury soy candles just in time for summer break will undoubtedly help them in relaxing. With TLC’s spring and summer collection showcasing candles such as Seaside, Tomato Garden, Costa Del Azahar, and many others, TLC definitely has a candle that will bring the essence of summer into your teacher’s home, and allow for their moments of relaxation to bring immediately after school has ended.
Teachers work tirelessly for their students and deserve to be shown appreciation for their efforts, especially after the year we have all just had. So as the school year is slowly coming to a close, think about what gift you could gift a teacher to show them that all of their hard work was not done in vain and that they are valued.
