With the school year coming to a close, many students are gearing up for their summer vacations. Many students want to thank their teachers with some type of end of the year gift. While many gifts of this sort are welcomed by some schools, others do not allow them. Make certain that your school allows these gifts before you go out and spend the money. Here are five outstanding choices for end of the year gifts for your teacher:

Gift Certificates

The one thing that will keep a teacher smiling more than anything else is a gift certificate to their favorite spa or restaurant. Do a little research into what they love and get them a certificate to that place. That way they can go and get exactly what they might like. This is always a popular choice for teachers.

School Supplies

What seems like a very impersonal gift at first, is actually a fantastic choice that is appreciated more than you could ever know. Teachers often foot the bill for their own supplies, and they are always very low come the end of the school year. Buying them supplies packaged up in a nice gift basket will never be frowned upon. It may even get you a hug!

A personalized letter

Teachers are often sentimental folks, and getting a special note from you as a student is sure to touch their heart. Let them know what they have meant to you over the year, and how much you appreciate their efforts in helping you grow as a student. They are sure to love that gift.

Candles and Bath Oils

Again, teachers will appreciate any end of year gifts that will help them to relax. Grab up some wonderful bath oils, lotions, and candles you can find and put them in a nice gift basket for your teacher. The relaxing nature of these gifts will tell the teacher that you wish to make up for all the times you stressed them out.

A Class wide Photo Album

Gather up all the other kids in the class and have each of them bring a photo as well as a short note to the teacher. Put all of these things together in a photo album or a nice digital picture frame. This will allow your teacher to always remember your class, and to look back fondly at the students that comprised it. Teachers have days just like the rest of us where they do not feel appreciated, and this can give them something to refer back to on those tough days.

Finding a great end of year gift for your teacher is actually rather easy if you give it some thought. Most teachers are always very thankful for any gifts they might receive, regardless of what it is. Make it something special and personalized, and you will have a hit for sure.
