Teachers - what do you want for Christmas?

I am sure I am not the only one who wonders what to get for you every year. Can you give us some gift ideas so that we are getting you what you REALLY want, and not another ornament or coffee mug? :)

  • I like getting ornaments- but gift cards are so helpful... places like Wal*Mart, Staples or Office Max. I usually do not like getting them from teacher supply stores unless they are a larger amount, as I do not usually shop there on my own and have to add money most of the time to get things, and they are usually cheaper elsewhere.

    Also- scholastic book clubs has teacher gift certificates available that are wonderful to get and I personally love getting things from Oriental Trading.

  • I'm sure a gift card to office max or staples would be very handy

  • Well, since you a cards are good: Starbucks, restaurant, Barnes and Noble, Target, Staples, Office Maxx...we spend so much money out of our own pockets that the office supply cards really would come in handy, for myself. I can't speak for other teachers.

  • I'd love a gift card to Office Max. I would also like a gift of some school supplies. Pencils and erasers are alway in need. I swear, there is a monster in my classroom that eats those things. I would also like books for the classroom library. A room deoderizer wouldn't be bad either. I teacher teenage boys. It seems like one of them always has gas.

  • My favorite gift is an ornament. Each year I pull them out, I remember the child who gave it to me, even years later.
