This is probably the favorite gift given to any teacher. I like to do some investigating and find out the kids’ teachers’ “favorite things”! This makes gift giving pretty easy! One of the nicest gifts I have gotten over the years is a gift card from my entire class. One mother sent a letter to all the parents in our class (without me knowing) saying she wanted to get one large Visa gift card for me for Christmas. Parents mailed an amount to her and she purchased a large gift card! It was such a nice treat! But picking up a gift card to a restaurant, grocery store, gas station, Starbucks, or for a massage is sure to be a winner!
Another fun idea is to do a quick search on Pinterest! (You can follow my Teacher Appreciate Idea board here!) I made a “For Your Mistle Toes” gift bag and included socks, nail polish, chocolate, and a gift card for a pedicure! I also made a “Thanks a Latte for All You Do” gift bag and included a thermal mug and chocolate! Sometime I even throw in a Starbucks gift card too!
