Help!Update in OP-Teachers gifts

My 3yo and I made the gemstone one below and it came out perfect!He loved doing it and it looks awesome.But now I cant find deep enough frames for them!Where do I find deep frames?

I absolutely love my sons teachers and want to do something for them for Christmas. But Im not sure what to do!I thought about having my son make something for each of them.Something like this:

or this

And maybe this for both of them/ classroom:

Or should I just go with a coffee mug that says best teacher?What do teachers like?This is my first year experience with school!Help

Re: Teachers gifts

I LOVE the crayon one and the supply cake. I know a lot of teachers buy classroom supplies out of their own pocket lots of times so I think that one would be greatly appreciated and very thoughtful! Im sure they will love any of them though

I like the crayon pictures more, but the gemstone one would be easier. The cake idea is ADORABLE!

Re: Teachers gifts

Please oh please oh please DO NOT get a coffee mug for the teacher I have soooo many that I have received over the years. That I finally donated.

I LOVE the crayon one and we plan on doing that this year for ds's teacher. Maybe throw in a small gc to a coffee place (if she drinks coffee) or Target (I loved getting target cards).

the supply cake is also cute!

Hey!! I liked the coffee mugs, I usually got 25 cents each at the garage sale that summer. Yeah, the coffee mugs are overdone. even if you put candy or a gift card in them that still leaves them with a mug.
