What are some unique Teacher Appreciation Day gifts?
From apples to paperweights to mugs, teachers often receive well meaning but lackluster gifts for Teacher Appreciation Day. This year, branch out from the norm and give your child’s teacher something interesting and fun to mark your appreciation for their hard work.
Younger teachers might appreciate a gift certificate to Longshore Sailing School in Westport, which offers a relaxing, kid-free day on the Sound, sailing, kayaking, or paddleboarding. To give your teacher a fun night out, consider tickets to a play at the Wilton Playshop or Westport Country Playhouse. Looking to the summer, tickets to Shakespeare on the Sound or New Canaan Summer Theater promise a relaxing outdoor evening.
If you prefer to go the gift-card route, spare your teacher from out-of-pocket classroom expenses by getting them a gift card to Staples or Michael’s. Teachers have hobbies just like the rest of us, and if you have an inkling of what your teacher’s interests might be, consider a yoga mat, a new pair of goggles, or a gift certificate for a cooking class.
Whatever you choose, we’re sure that teachers will appreciate your efforts to recognize their daily work both in and out of the classroom.
