Gift Ideas for
Teacher Appreciation Week
(Or Any Other Time)


Many companies - you get their catalogs -- provide personalized gifts. Everything from pens and pencils to mugs, and stationery to sportswear, can be created with your school name and/or logo on them. Each year, we try to give a nice gift during Teacher Appreciation Week, like this toolkit we gave one year. But we also give a wide variety of small and inexpensive (or no-cost) recognitions.

Is there a way to tie in a gift to a school-wide theme or project? This toolkit would be a perfect gift for kicking of your yearlong "Giving Kids All the Tools They Need" theme. Or maybe your staff has invested a good bit of time developing a new mission statement. If that is the case, you might invest a little money into providing coffee mugs with the school logo and new mission statement printed on them. That constant reminder of their efforts and your school-wide mission is well worth the few bucks you will spend on those mugs.
