Over the weekend, I asked my three-year-old preschooler on what she would like to get for her teacher on Teachers’ Day. After thinking for a couple of minutes, she replied, "I will get Teacher a cake - a very big strawberry cake for teachers' day!" She excitedly explained that a huge cake would require sharing and her Teacher always said sharing was caring.
As she went back to playing with her little sister, I thought, a cake does seem like an okay idea for teachers' day, but was it enough? I would rather the teachers receive a thoughtful gift that is useful and meaningful, yet can go a long way.
I mean, what could be worse than buying your child's teacher a pair of cute earrings to show your gratitude, only to find at the next parent-teacher meeting that she doesn't have pierced ears?
To help you out on the quest to find the perfect gifts for your child’s favourite teachers, we asked some teachers here in Singapore what they would like for their special day!
