National Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11, 2018. Teachers work tirelessly to ensure our children receive the best education possible. It’s important to make sure they receive recognition and appreciation for all their hard work. For more than 30 years, the National PTA® has designated a week in May to recognize teachers’ contributions. How can you express appreciation for all that educators do? Celebrate with these recognition ideas and some promotional products for teachers.

Create a garden to honor teachers

School gardens are a great way to honor teachers and can also provide a valuable learning opportunity for students. The Impression Series Seed Packet – Butterfly Garden or Grow Your Own Kit – Mixed Salad is a great way to start a garden that will be enjoyed by teachers and students alike.

Host a teacher appreciation luncheon

Celebrating an event by sharing food has been a custom observed worldwide for centuries. Honor teachers with an appreciation luncheon. Decorate tables and show school spirit with logo’d dinnerware. Everything you need—plates, napkins, cups and plastic flatware—is included in this Tailgater Set. During the lunch, hand out promotional products for teachers, such as school logo’d Cotton Sheeting Natural Economy Totes, coupled with a handwritten note from the principal, as a show of thanks.

Give the gift of Zen

Everyone needs to relax at the end of a long day. Show your appreciation for teachers with a Zen Electronic Diffuser and various essential oils, like the Zen Essential Oil – Tranquility. This portable diffuser can be enjoyed at home or in the classroom. Or send teachers home with a Zen Bath Salt Pouch to help them relax and unwind.

Recognize with awards and certificates

Honor and recognize teachers for their unique talents and contributions during Teacher Appreciation Week with an awards ceremony. Involve students, parents and other faculty by asking that they write notes of gratitude to their favorite teachers. Present awards for anything from coolest classroom to most school spirit to best dressed. Imprint certificates presented in this Classic Paper Certificate Folder to celebrate and display accomplishments.


Teachers shape and educate countless students each year and have dedicated their lives to giving today’s youth a positive future. Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week with thoughtfully chosen promotional products for teachers.
