Re: Teachers gifts

What about a reusable water bottle? All my teacher friends use them in the classroom but not all my teacher friends drink coffee (I didn't drink coffee until I started getting gifted starbucks cards).

Best gift however is a hand written note.

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.

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!
No mugs! LOL

I would love to buy a gc but we are having a hard time financially and I have most if not all of the supplies above in my stockpile

The Tervis cup is another awesome idea! I was gifted one last year with a school patch in it. Not sure how they got it in there but it's very nice! My husband steals it all the time.

Re: Teachers gifts

I have seen crayon bracelets too, where they string together broken crayon pieces...it looks awesome.
