Instead of buying a ready made gift or even a greeting card, you can use your creativity and come up with an off-beat, handmade and customized gift to express your gratitude toward your school or college teacher on the occasion of Teacher’s Day. Here are two simple ideas that will make a wonderful gift with a personal touch.

A note of gratitude: Another interesting idea to make your teacher happy on this special day is a note of gratitude. Think about what make your favorite teacher so special and which are the attributes for which you respect him or her so much? Jot down your thoughts neatly. Teachers would appreciate the fact that you offer your heartfelt thanks.

Picture it forever: Take a picture of your class and put it nicely into a special or even simple picture frame for the teacher to proudly hang up in the classroom or retain in his/her home office. You can opt to personalize the frame with the teacher’s name and your feelings about the teacher engraved. Ask an artistic student to paint it right onto frame.

Memory album for your teacher: Here is another variation of the above idea. You can put together a memory album for your teacher. Take a photograph of each student creatively against a nice background; develop the roll of film right away.

You can then have many colors of scrap-booking paper cut into same sized triangles for the students to choose from and to write a message for the beloved teacher. Each kid will also sign his or her name on their triangle.

You can then put the photographs and the matching triangles together in a creative album that will make an everlasting memory. You can title the first page with your teacher’s name, class and the year. It will sure prove to a big hit as the teacher can share it with his colleagues and family members as well.
