Didn’t get a chance to say thank you to your kid’s teacher? It’s not too late.
Not sure how to thank your kid’s teacher this year? With many schools across the country being mostly virtual, parents and kids may not be able to say their goodbyes or thank yous in person. Even if you don’t have your teacher’s address, it is possible to send them a small token to show how much they’re appreciated.
Here are some e-gift ideas that will go straight into their inbox.
1. Reading materials
Teachers like to read, right? Help them bulk up their summer reading collection with an e-gift card from Indigo. If you want to make the gift extra special, try checking in with your local book shops to see if they also offer this service (Indie Bound is a great resource for finding independent book sellers near you.)
2. A sweet treat
Are you that parent who bakes cookies for your kid’s teacher each year? With an Uber Eats, DoorDash or Skip The Dishes gift card you can still treat them to something sweet of their choosing.
3. Caffeine fix
Retailers like Tim Hortons, David’s Tea and Starbucks all offer electronic gift cards—most can even be personalized. For a more local option, check out Giftly, which has an array of independent coffee shops that offer e-gifts and are listed based on where you live.
4. Movie night
Get them ready for when theatres open back up with a Cineplex gift card. Cards start at $10 and include a personalized message.
5. Let them choose
