Teacher gifts?

Yes. I have no school supplies, but all I'm concerned with are my teacher gifts. I like to get my "in" as soon as possible.

Anybody got any great ideas?

I have to follow a real overachiever in 2nd grade. A SAHM with 1 child! I'm not even going to try to compete.

I like to win teachers over with baked goods! And if by chance you do not bake, I bet you can find a bakery near by... trick to make it look like yours is the container! ha ha ;)

Whoa - I'm new to the school stuff (only child just started kindergarten). Should I have gotten the teacher a gift already? I'm such a slacker!

As a non-teacher, non-parent...

Starbucks gift card (or coffee) to get as much energy as the youngins...

Excedrin to dull the headache pain from all the youngins...

Just joshin'...know you'll find something wonderful!

Oh dear. We just started school this week and I didn't even send a gift... FAIL!

Hmmm...my kids are not old enough for this yet, but it is a matter that is deserving of attention.

How do you think they would feel about cold, hard cash? :)

HI, I know at my little diva's school they wear name badges. I am going to order her teacher a monogrammed badge reel. (you can see mine by checking out my blog)

I don't know I'll be much help here because my daughter is only two, but goes full time to montessori school. Since the kiddos all still nap, I buy the two teachers lunch of their choice every couple of months. They love it, think it's a nice change from the other stuff they get that they don't always use, plus they get a break from having to deal with their own lunch making etc. They've actually told me to just keep this as my teacher's gifts. Just a thought.

Last year we got Ellie's teacher a monogrammed tote bag for Christmas and a monogrammed travel mug for teacher appreciation week. I would suggest something along those lines. How about a monogrammed hand sanitzer bottle. They can refill it through the year!! It would be so fabulous!!! Let us know what you decide. :)

My sister is a school teacher in New York(upstate); her kids parents give her Starbuck's gift cards....I swear she doesn't ever buy her own coffee, she has those cards. She sends me one on my birthday...I'm soooo LUCKY!!

well. Let me get started. FOr one? Teachers have all they need of
-ornaments
-plaques
-anything apple related
{sorry!}
we often times would love something for the classroom= a new kickball, game, puzzle, ect.

Gift cards? Candy/Chocolate? We all go nuts over those!

Ashlee said...

I agree with Sara -- no candles either! I don't think gifts are necessary, but if you insist, maybe a tervis tumbler or a gift card to a restaurant? Or what about enclosure cards? Depends on how much you want to spend; however, as a teacher, gifts didn't do it for me!

As the teacher myself....I would say a giftcard to anywhere...even the Wally World! You know we have to buy supplies all year long!

As a teacher I can tell you what I like:
-baked goods (but many of my fellow teachers won't eat homemade, especially when the kids make them)
-Gift Cards to book stores
-Gift Cards to teacher stores
-Something handmade or similar (one year a parent had each kid design a quilt square and put it together as a quilt for my teacher mom)

And the best gift - a fun, respectful, nice, helpful kid who enjoys learning. We always can use more of those!
