  1. As a former teacher, you have some great ideas on here! I love the stamp idea! And you’re right, a teacher just likes to know they’re appreciated. I’ve kept some very kind notes from parents over the years expressing their gratefulness, and those mean the most.

    1. I tried to include gifts male teachers would appreciate as well. I think they’re sometimes forgotten!
