As so many of us of all ages can attest, there are teachers who made such a positive impact on our lives that we will truly never forget them. What we may not have realized at the time is that it wasn’t simply what they taught us that was so impactful – or even the interests they sparked, or new ways of thinking they introduced us to – but the ways in which they helped us become more aware of who we are and the world around us, long after the class bell rang.
Meaningful Teacher Gifts from a Parent
"The job of an educator is to teach students to see vitality in themselves."– Joseph Campbell
Good teachers have a way of bringing out the best in students, and can play a pivotal role in how a child feels about their own capabilities in the classroom and beyond. When a teacher makes an impact like that on their own child’s life, many parents look for a unique teacher appreciation gift to thank them and let them know their positive influence is noticed. One of our favorites for such an occasion is the acrylic rose box – perfect for displaying on her desk!
Teacher of the Year Gifts
"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."– Benjamin Franklin
Among the more traditional teacher of the year gifts, you’ll find engraved plaques, apple-shaped desk accessories, and certificates that can be proudly displayed on the wall of their classrooms. And while these do make a wonderful token of appreciation, adding something a bit more personal, modern, and meaningful can be accomplished with our One in a Million boxed roses collection. Nestled inside an elegant, chic black box is one of the most special and longest lasting roses we offer – a one in a million, just like them.
Teacher Retirement Gifts
"Teaching is the essential profession, the one that makes all professions possible."― David Haselkorn
When the time comes for a teacher to pack up her classroom just once more, trading early morning lessons for a well-deserved retirement, she is sure to be full of countless emotions and memories. While she’s sure to appreciate having more time to relax, spend time with loved ones, and perhaps finally dive into a hobby or two she’s been meaning to try for years, there is always a sadness for what we’ll miss about the page we’re on as we turn to a new chapter.
As for how to help sweep that sadness away? A long lasting rose bouquet can certainly help! Choose from a radiant rainbow of show-stopping colors, including always popular white, red, or pink roses, and modern favorites, including rose gold and silver roses. Or – opt for a mix of two rose colors; one to honor the past, and one to celebrate the future!
