For most couples with kids, Teacher's Day is a buzz of activity. Trust your munchkins to create a stir with homemade cards, DIY crafts and sometimes even homemade cakes and cookies!

This year move away from the regular and keep your schedule free to help your child with the most interesting and innovative gift ideas. That too without burning a hole in your pocket.

We bring you a few innovative ideas:

Mason jar as pen/pencil holder: Take out the paint and use the colours as generously as you want. The brighter the better; you can colour the jar and the lid in different shades. If you are not too comfortable with the paint then use coloured chart papers in floral patterns to cover up the jar. Or the easiest way out, use glitter!

Plant with personalised flower pot: It's been proved that plants next to your desk at work can increase your productivity. You can't imagine in what ways it can help your kid and influence his attitude. For some fun time take a flower pot and help your child paint it.

Potrait by your kid: For pre-school students, what better way to surprise their teacher other than gifting personalised connotation of their happy time, be it in class or elsewhere. Encourage your kid to be creative, but don't force him/her. Let them use their imagination.

A set of CD's: If you want to move away from the regular chocolates and flower routine then you can gift a set of CD's comprising of the favourite tracks.

Self-baked cookies/cupcakes: This exercise will definitely help you and your child to bond. Have a wonderful time showing them the tricks on how to do it. Decorate it with bright toppings.
