Would you get your kids teacher a gift card?

My son is in kindergarten and he loves his teacher.
I'm thinking of getting her a gift card to lane bryant (she's big, like mysize I would say like a 22-24).

Would that be okay?
Or should I get her a gift card for a teacher supply store?

  • I think I would go with a more general gift card. Bath and Body Works, Target, Barnes and Noble if she likes to read, Olive Garden or Applebees is a fun one. That way she has more choices of what to buy. And all those after Christmas sales can be fun to shop.

  • I am big too. But I would not want anyone to give me a gift card to a FAT LADIES STORE. To me that is an insult. Sense your really do not know her (she is not family or a friend). I do not recomend it. Buy her a yankey candle or something.

  • I'd get one for the teacher supply store. The one to Lane Bryant seems too personal. Does she shop at Walmart or Target?

  • Lane Bryant isn't just the fat ladies store! Sheesh! They are sizes 14-30. 14 is ALMOST average in this country now (it's what size 12???). And lane bryant isn't cheap!

    I agree with fallaya, I would buy one for target or something. That way it's not just clothes.

  • I think the teacher supply store would be good!
    They have to buy stuff from their out of their own pocket, and I know my son's teacher is very thankful for anything she doesn't have to buy.
    We have supplied a few things for his class, and even if its not much, it means a lot to her.

    For her present we just got her a little smell good stuff basket from walmart. We got one for her teacher aid too.
    My son is in Kinder too
