Teachers are some of the most important people in our lives. From the moment we are old enough to go to school as toddlers, they enrich our minds and help us to grow as students and individuals. Teachers pass on a wealth of knowledge to us and make us better people. Then, once we’re older, teachers help to take care of our children and educate them. They chose to take on this selfless profession in order to prepare young minds for successful futures.
Teachers deserve to be thanked every day for their service. Not only did they shape our minds, but they continue to shape our children’s and grandchildren’s minds and teach them life lessons regularly. As the school year approaches, it’s important to think of a way to thank teachers for everything they have done for us and our families.
When a teacher is greeted with a gift, they are able to see that their hard work is recognized and appreciated. They improve our children’s lives every day, so they deserve to get a token of gratitude for their time, patience, and knowledge.
A Teacher’s Blessing
Now, you may be thinking “What do I even buy a teacher for a gift?” It might be difficult to find the perfect gift for your child’s teacher, especially when the beginning of the year starts and you may not know them very well. You may consider getting them the generic apple, but the sentiment might wear off after they receive their 15th apple of the day! You want to give them something that will touch their heart, something that they can hang up or carry around with them and look at regularly.
If you’re looking for an affordable personalized gift for sale for the teacher in your child’s life, “A Teacher’s Blessing” might be the perfect present. "A Teacher’s Blessing" is a thoughtful poem written by Purple Wishing Gate’s founder, Barbara D. MacAdam, that thanks the teachers that we love and value.
"A Teacher's Blessing" is available in several sizes from our online store. Your child’s teacher will have a permanent reminder of how important they are and how appreciated they are for their service, whether in the form of a 5” x 7” or 8” x 10” frameable blessing or a 2” x 3” laminated Pocket Blessing that they can carry with them.
Put Purple Wishing Gate on Your Back to School Shopping List
If you’re sending your child back to school this year, make sure they’re prepared with all of the essentials to start off this year on the right foot. Although backpacks and pencils are a crucial thing to bring to school at the beginning of the year, packing a gift to show your child’s teacher that you appreciate them is just as important.
