Popular craft store Michaels conducted a survey in April asking over 1,000 teachers what their preferences for gift giving during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 3 – 9). While many children and parents wonder what gifts they should get for the teachers Michaels survey has revealed what teachers want this Teacher Appreciation Week.
The 73% of teachers prefer gifts made by their students; they said that the handmade gifts involving creative elements. Half the teachers said they have had enough of the typical coffee mugs, candles and bath products typically given as gifts.
The most desired gifts by teachers after home made pieces were gift cards. One third of teachers enjoyed receiving gift cards to retail stores. Although the company obviously recommends Michaels gift cards as the perfect gift for teachers, most teachers have probably had enough of arts and crafts during the school year.
Giftah is in favor of giving gift cards for teacher’s week. Students can save money by using Giftah to buy discounted gift cards to give their teachers. If the teachers do not like the gift card, they can always come back on Giftah and get cash for their gift cards.
