Whether it is your school, karate, or dance teacher, show gratitude for their hard work with a personal gift.

Step 1: Find out the school's policy
Check with the school to find out if they have a policy with regard to gifts. Some schools frown on the practice.

Step 2: Talk with your child
Learn the teacher's interests to get ideas about what the teacher would like.

A gift that relates directly to the teacher's vocation is always a safe bet.

Step 3: Go shopping
Go shopping with your child and let them select a gift if you choose to buy one.

Step 4: Avoid handmade gifts
Avoid making gifts. Most teachers have accumulated so many handmade gifts that they can't display them all.

Step 5: Organize collection
Organize a collection among parents of other students to purchase one big gift if people are interested.

Step 6: Consider a gift card
Consider giving the teacher a gift card so that they can get themselves something they can use.
