Re: Teachers gifts
I did a lot of asking around last year and most of my teacher friends said the best gifts were consumables like starbucks gift cards if they drank coffee or gift cards for restaurants or whatever. One friend made a great point that she had 22 kids in her class and sometimes the mugs/crafts and such got overwelming. The honest answer I got about baked goods as well really varied on the teacher-some liked this idea, but others would leave them in the staff room or whatever b/c they got so much of that over the holidays and were trying to be healthy.
