Teacher Appreciation Day is May 6th, and it’s the perfect opportunity to recognize your child’s teacher for the inspiring work he or she does. Challenging, encouraging and shaping young lives, teachers pass on many amazing gifts to their students, and May 6th is your day to give back.
A simple thank you is all teachers want in return. But how to say it? Here are a few gift ideas for Teacher Appreciation Day that any teacher would love to receive.
- Write a thank you note. A simple, sincere note means the most, and is easy for a teacher to keep. Decorate it with a colorful drawing for a special touch. Continue reading
We all know sending a thank you note after an interview is a great way to make a lasting impression on the hiring managers, but once we have the job isn’t it still as important to let your co-workers know how important they are in helping you get your work done? At Pear Tree Greetings, we think so, and the other day my neighbor and I were talking about thank you card ideas, and she had a great example of using them at work. We asked her to share it with you!

I was raised to always send thank you notes. As soon as I could write, my mom made me write my own thank you letters to grandparents after birthdays and Christmas. My grandmother would even respond to my thank you letters to say thank you for my thank you. Until recently, I thought that tradition had died with her generation.
Today is a good day to let a teacher know how much you appreciate them! (Actually, any day is a good day to do that!) Whether it’s a word of thanks, a note or a gift, it truly is the thought that counts. And if you’re not ready with something today, the end of the school year is the next best time to show your appreciation.
Our Holly Days is another one of our beloved Pearistas. Holly decided to create a DIY Elf-ing Treat using Pear Tree’s Christmas notelettes. We love homemade Christmas gift ideas and we wanted to share this one with our readers. Enjoy!
J & I have the sweetest neighbors. They are always bringing over toys for the boys to play with & sneaking them Squeez-It’s on hot days. Sometimes they bring their cat out to let the boys pet her & they always stop to listen to their stories.
I think elf-ing your neighbors is such a sweet idea & it’s a tradition that J & I decided to start with the kids this year. I had some extra apple butter from the batch I made, so we decided to use it for the neighbors’ elf treat. And Pear Tree’s sweet new Christmas Notelettes & Christmas gift tags/personalized stickers are perfect for elf-ing!
Isn’t this just the sweetest little thing? Anything that is miniature is automatically 10x cuter. Besides, homemade apple butter. I went ahead & brushed off both my mom win & awesome neighbor shoulders for this one.
