Male Teacher Appreciation Gift
This year my son has all male teachers. With a child in 8th grade, it makes it hard enough to really get to know the teachers, but it’s even harder when they’re male. Just a hunch, but the list of appreciation gifts I’ve given his female teachers over the years probably isn’t something his male teachers would be excited for. I have to admit, so far this year, I’ve taken the easy way out and just gave them gift cards and food. Food is great for male teachers. They like food. Home baked goods, homemade lunch or candy…..you’re pretty safe with those options. And they’re great options. But being the creative type, I just couldn’t let the year go by without doing something more…….creative! I also know many of your kids have male teachers and you appreciate them just as much and would like some ideas.
If the male teacher in your life enjoys the outdoors, this small Summer Survival Kit for their summer adventures is perfect! Great for camping, a day hike, or taking along on a bike ride.
They’ll be touched with your thoughtfulness and I bet this will be one of their most original gifts they’ve ever received. Bingo!
I picked up these items at Target, then created a simple tag using my Word program.
“Summer Survival – You’ve survived another school year, now it’s time for a summer full of adventure”.
I used an “adventure” stamp I already had to decorate the bag……to kind of pull the theme all together. It just so happened that when I was lining the tag with an old dictionary page, I saw the life jacket guy……..I couldn’t resist cutting him out and adding him.
I think they’ll like it, don’t you?
