Show Your Appreciation This Teacher Appreciation Month

May is Teacher Appreciation Month. It’s time to honor those dedicated to helping us succeed in school and in life. Show your teacher how much you appreciate all they do with these card and gift ideas!

Personalized gifts: Because no two children are the same, teachers go to great lengths to get to know their students. It’s time to turn the tables! Ask your children about their teachers. Observe and gain insight from your involvement at school. Gain as much information about the educator as you can. Take what you’ve learned, find, and personalize a perfect gift!

Handmade cards: It’s hard to go wrong with thoughtful, hand-written greeting cards. Forget the typical cheesy messages – write from the heart. Use Paper Mate Flair pens to add splashes of color and emphasis. The more personalized the card, the more memorable it will be to the teacher. This is also a great opportunity to share a few favorite memories or key learnings from the school year. Seal it all up in a nicely personalized and decorated envelope!

Supplies: Though teachers offer supply lists at the beginning of the year, many still end up purchasing additional supplies out of pocket. This Teacher Appreciation Month, help restock the resource closet with a few favorites! Paper Mate Flair pens are always a great option, as are Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pens. Combine the supplies with a handmade card and personalized packaging for the perfect gift!
