Is there someone in your life that inspires you to be creative? Or perhaps you know someone that works hard everyday to inspire creativity in their students or peers? Show the teacher in your life how much you value their efforts with these fantastic tokens of appreciation!

1. Handwritten letter
Nothing says ‘thank you’ better than a personal letter, which will show that special someone how much you appreciate his or her hard work. It doesn’t have to be long – you can be sure that it will be kept for years!


2. Memory jar
This can be prepared throughout the school year. Do you remember a time when someone really made a difference? Perhaps they were facing a challenge that they overcame with grace, or taught you a lesson you’ll always remember  – write down all your thoughts and hold onto keepsakes regularly!


3. Art magazine subscription
Is your teacher a fan of contemporary art, design, restoring old furniture or anything else creative? Find a magazine she would love and buy a subscription for 6 months or a year.

4. Teacher survival kit
If you understand how challenging the work of nurturing creativity can be, fill a storage container with all things needed to survive long hours in an art room!

9. Water bottle
It’s thirsty work being creative. How about a personalized water bottle to make sure they stay hydrated and top of their game.


10. Vintage or handmade drawer organizer
Teachers are constantly organizing and re-organizing their things. Make it a bit easier for them and give them a handmade or vintage drawer organizer. Here’s how to make one yourself using empty cereal boxes and wrapping paper.
