This has been asked a few times and the overwhelming response from current and former teachers is a thank you note from the child is the most appreciative gift. And a copy to the principle makes it even better.

A pretty flower pot with a bagged bag of soil (put enough potting soil in a bag in the pot) with an herb or seed packet of something. ?

Letters are awesome, because they show appreciation to a teacher who probably feels under appreciated by everyone else. Also, I always enjoyed a yummy batch of cookies that my students baked for me.

I agree, the boys have given teachers notes for years, they seem to like them. My oldest son just graduated and I ran into his grade 6 teacher yesterday. She mentioned his little note-she was also the school math teacher, so his not was an equation, something like fun+learningxfairness= Mrs _____ I thought it was a cute idea

Notes are the best, however, gift cards rule too! Lowes, Home Depot, we seem to do a lot of work around the house during the summer.

I sent a thank you card and a Tim Horton's coffee gift card.

I think this will be the choice. Everyone loves Timmies around here. So many of them.

The nicest thing I ever received was a hand painted clay pot with herbs growing in it for my kitchen. I still have the pot outside now in my garden. The kids could paint the pot.

I took the advise of teachers here on the buzz. My 11yo DS wrote a thank you note. It was short & sweet. I'm sure his teacher was glad to receive the note. And I think it's important for him to learn note writing skills and to show his appreciation

Thanks Allie..I think I will combine a personal hand written note from the boys in their own handwriting and a Tim Horton's gift card. Settled out the door I go.

I bought my sons teachers Chapters gift cards, then made a gift basket up with jams and truffles, we are still allowed food gifts as long as they are nut free, because I made them the principal knows they are fine.
