Choosing the perfect holiday gift for those who teach your children should be done with both creativity and personal attention. It's easy enough to say 'thank you' with a simple card - but sometimes it's necessary to take your gratitude to another level. 

Here are some ideas for unique teacher gifts for the end of the school year, everything from homemade crafts and recipes to a personally designed custom crystal trophy.

Do-it-Yourself Craftiness

A great way to get your kids involved in giving thanks is to come up with amazing crafts that are both beautiful and useful. Incorporate ideas you brainstorm with your child and make a plan that gives them a role from beginning to end. Check out these Homemade Teacher Gift Ideas to get your creative thoughts flowing.

Feed the Munchies

Offering homemade goodies, such as cookies or other baked goods, is a great way to show your appreciation for what a teacher has done. Again, this is a way to keep your child involved in the entire gift making process. If you don't have any favorite recipes already on hand, try something from the Betty Crocker pantry.

Special Gifts for Special Teachers

Sometimes there are teachers who stand head and shoulders above the others. Those who are at the head of the class amongst the team of educators guiding your child. For these teachers, the gift ideas you come up with should reflect a different level of care. A gift that says more than just 'thanks' but goes on to say 'THANK  YOU for your influence on my child's life!'

For these teachers, consider a custom crystal trophy to express your gratitude. Here are some of the options available for gifting those standout teachers:

  • Optical Crystal Awards: Known for having a pure, clear look and a surface that resists instances of scratching, optical crystal provides a perfect base for the engravable custom crystal trophy that matches the accomplishments of your student's favorite teacher. These are offered in multiple impressive sizes and shapes.
  • Crystal-D Awards: What do you give to the most creative teacher you know? How about a stunning custom crystal trophy in the category of the Crystal-D Awards? Aesthetically stunning, the Crystal-D will surely stand as a memorable gift for any deserving teacher.
  • Jade Crystal Awards: Recognizing the talents of amazing educators should make a lasting impression. Choosing a Jade Crystal Award will set up your gift as a stunning display of appreciation symbolizing prosperity and standing head and shoulders above others in the arena of custom crystal trophy awards.
