“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” – Henry Adams
Hickory Farms would like to acknowledge the enormous contribution teachers make toAmerica’s youths. They are the too-often unsung heroes in the trenches, playing multiple roles as counselors, healers, coaches and substitute parents. They often work long hours putting lesson plans together to ensure our students are receiving the best education possible.
Teachers should be shown appreciation every day for their dedication to shaping the minds and sharpening the intellect of the next generation of responsible adults. National Teacher Appreciation Day is on May 6, and we’ve put together a few gift ideas in honor of all the teachers making a difference in the lives of our children.
- A gift of Hickory Farms Fruit & Nuts will always be appreciated. Both our Orchard’s Bounty and Bountiful Tastings baskets will be a welcome addition to any classroom or teacher’s lounge.
- A gift certificate to a local spa for a massage, facial, pedicure or other rejuvenating service would certainly be appreciated by a weary teacher who rarely has the time to be pampered.
- Balloon bouquets are a nice gesture, especially when accompanied by a heartfelt note from grateful parents and appreciative students. Veteran teachers often treasure student notes for decades as proof they’ve indeed made a difference to impressionable children.
- Teachers will be glad to receive a gift certificate for two to a local restaurant, perhaps accompanied by a pair of movie tickets, so they can enjoy a leisurely night out.
On May 6, take the time to thank your children’s teachers for their hard work instructing and inspiring students to reach their potential and expand their horizons. You can always keep it simple with a Hickory Farms gift certificate for $25, $50 or $100, so they can make their own selection. Call 800.753.8558 to place your order today.
