Both my parents and sister are teachers and I frequently ask them what types of gifts are their favorite to receive.  It never fails that favorite treats and drinks are among the top requested gifts for teacher appreciation, who couldn’t use a little pick me up when wrangling 20+ 6 year old kiddos all day?!  This simple gift is a fun way to make giving your teacher their favorite soda a little more extraordinary.

Teacher Appreciation week is May 4-8th and it’s the perfect time to personally thank your students’ teachers for their dedication and support. Gifts don’t have to be extravagant or cost a lot of money, but the simple gesture of saying “thank you” with a gift card to their favorite restaurant, a hand-painted flower pot or a heartfelt letter can make a teachers day!
