End the school year by saying thank you

Teachers work hard to challenge and improve the minds of their students, and it’s important they feel appreciated. With the school year coming to a close, make sure your kids’ favorite teachers know they’ve made a difference by thanking them with a personalized teacher gift. Sometimes a simple, heartfelt thank you is the best gift a person can receive.

Every student gives their teachers apples, but you can have your students give their teachers a gift that holds more meaning and can be cherished forever: a set of personalized note cards. A stylish card is the perfect way for your kids to express their gratitude at the end of the year. Plus, they’re affordable, which means your students can hand out cards to as many teachers as they’d like without costing you an arm and a leg.

If the thought of writing a long message to every teacher in their school is daunting to your students, let them know that a simple thank you will do just fine. For their favorite teachers, students can also include a short line expressing how that teacher has impacted their life or why they liked that teacher the best. Your kids’ teachers will be moved by the card and gesture of appreciation.

The importance of a handwritten thank you card

Gratitude is an emotion that is just not expressed frequently enough. After you receive a gift or a kind gesture, it is common practice to give thanks, but the thanks we offer reflexively are not always genuine or heartfelt. Saying “thank you” in passing is polite, but it is not the most thoughtful way to show your gratitude.

Taking the time to write a thank you card by hand is a very important practice to maintain. In an age of technology, it is very tempting to turn to email or text messages to send a quick, informal thank you to someone, but these methods lack the intimacy and significance inherent to a handwritten note. Writing thank you cards is slowly becoming less common – except for formal events like weddings or birthdays – and it is important to make sure this practice is not lost. Taking the time out of your fast-paced day to hand write a thank you shows that you are consciously choosing to invest the time in the relationship and show your gratitude.

Just because handwritten thank you cards are more personal doesn’t mean they have to be sappy or reflective. Let your personality shine through. The type of thank you card you send to a family member will differ from those you would send to a coworker. You can choose from any number of styles and designs or even create your own cards with DIY cards for an extra personal touch. Have fun with your thank you cards and use the opportunity to show your gratitude.
