Sentimental Gifts

Sentimental gifts remind educators of the profound impact they have on their students' lives. They serve as powerful reminders of the lasting connections forged between teachers and their students, leaving a lasting impression that goes beyond words. And a sentimental gift doesn’t have to cost much at all. Often the most appreciated gift to a teacher is a handwritten thank you note.
