Christmas Gifts for Preschool Teachers? What do you spend?

I know it's early but I like to spread out the spending for Christmas. My Son just started Preschool & he has a Teacher and a Teachers assistant in his class. What are good gifts for the Teachers in Preschool? What do you spend? This is all new to me & I have no idea. He goes a 3 hours twice a week. Any ideas are appreciated!

  • Last year I just went to the bakery and bought a pound of butter cookies. I put them into tins for teachers and office employees. Cost me less than $20 for everybody. Otherwise, if you want to get an actual gift, I'd say $15 $20 tops. I doubt I'd even spent that though unless she was an amazing teacher.

  • We got some cute personalized teacher holiday ornaments last year and the year before....they were roughly $8 each with the personalization.

  • I would suggest getting the Teachers a gift card for Starbucks or any other gift card you think is appropriate

  • As a former preschool teacher who was spoiled during the holidays, I agree with gift cards! Not more than $20 though! Also if your child is interested in making an ornament, that is really special. I still have all of the ones made for me from over 10 years ago. Now that said, I have had a wide range from simple cards with the kids pictures in them to one family that gave me $100 cash once, so each family is different.

  • I think a $10 gift card each to a coffee shop, or something would be nice.
    Maybe allow son to make the card that houses the gift card for a more personlized gift.
