The teachers in our lives give us so much and it's well known a teachers salary is far below the value they provide. Often we want to give back and say thank you for all the hard work.
A gift card can be a great way to say thank you. ScripSmart has complied a list of the best gift cards for teachers to help you find a great gift for the teacher in your life. You'll notice a few common themes for these gift cards: most can be used for school supplies, others for a cup of coffee or perhaps a bite to eat.
Food Might Be Thrown Away
A common way to say thank you to a teacher is baking sweets or giving food. In today's day and age, it might not be the great gift it once was.
Recently, while visiting with a friend of mine who is also teacher, I learned food she recived from students would be thrown away. It was a bit surprising; however, after learning about her concerns, it actually made sense.
The risk of a mischievous student's efforts to sabotage the brownies and make her sick outweighed any obligation to make use of the food. In the end, she would say thank you, throw the food away and tell the students it tasted great.
Gift Card Score® Can Help
Gift cards can have their downsides and no one likes to learn of gotchas restricting the use of a gift they received. ScripSmart's Gift Card Score can help you easily evaluate the quality of a gift card; the higher the score, the better the chances you're giving a gift which is among the most consumer friendly.
