Tuesday, May 9th is Teacher Appreciation Day. Shopping for teacher gifts isn't always easy, they are often inundated with gifts. Generally they appreciate the gesture, but how many paperweights in the shape of an apple and "World's Best Teacher" mugs and tote bags does one person really need?
A colorful bouquet of flowers delivered to their school is a wonderful indulgence for a busy, hardworking teacher. A local florist will hand-deliver your bouquet, which means this teacher gift won't be damaged in your little one's backpack! Floral fragrance will permeate the classroom air and brighten their day. Many of our arrangements arrive in keepsake containers, which serve as a long-lasting teacher gift after the flowers are gone. Your favorite teacher may want to store classroom supplies in one of our great mugs or vases, but better still, love it so much that he/she will use it at home.
Parents or a child can also validate all that educators do with a hand-written letter of thanks and recognition for a job well done.
Don't forget to gift a coach, tutor, or music instructor, too! The best teachers seem to always put their students above themselves. Along with teachers, so many other people make our children's dreams come alive. A great coach gift idea for the person who taught your daughter to play softball is our Take Me Out to the Ballgame Gift Basket. For a guitar or piano teacher gift, Teleflora's Morning Melody Bouquet is a perfect choice. Any of our colorful bouquets or plants would make a lovely tutor gift and are also budget friendly.
