The survey by the paper reveals that students and parents are buying utility items and show pieces as gifts for their teachers. Gift and stationery shops have set up special sales counters for selling such gifts. The cards have become expensive this time. Many students have taken to on-line gifts for their teachers – a growing trend.
According to report published in businesspundit.com, Hallmark stores benefit most from Teachers’ Day by creating a demand among most parents and students to spend money on a card and a gift to honour or show appreciation towards a teacher. He further says that due to market forces, Teacher’s Day has become more about brown-nosing than any genuine display of appreciation, as the latter probably does not need tacky gifts to be understood.
However for those, who wish to make their own cards and not indulge in buying expensive gifts some quality quotes on teachers may be helpful, which can be easily searched over the Internet. Some good quotes are as follows:
-You are not only our teacher; you are our friend, philosopher and guide - all molded into one person. We will always be grateful for your support and guidance.
-The way you teach with share and care makes you an ideal teacher.
-If I found guidance, mentoring, support and care rolled in one person - that person is you.
-You taught me; you inspired me; you amused me and you shaped me into a good learner and person. I am grateful to you.
-What I am today, it's your doing. If only I could have your blessing for a lifetime, I would succeed in life. Thanks for your time and sincere efforts.
-As Albert Einstein has said that it was the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge. You have done that for me.
