So the end of the school year will be here soon (YIKES) and I'm new to this. I have a question about teacher's gifts. I know they aren't necessary but I love Alice's teachers, so naturally I'll be getting them something. But Should I get something small for her 3 swim teachers ( whom have been super understanding with her this year) and her gym teacher? And what should I get them? I found a few options to make her classroom teacher's it's really just the swim and gym teachers that have me stumped. Thanx ladies =)

 I very rarely have the money to do a teacher gift.

Last year Johnny's science teacher got a $10 GC to DD as she really went above and beyond with him. The year before it was his science and resource teachers.

Usually I do a gift at the holiday's for the younger ones teachers and leave it at that.

How about some nice lotion for the swim teacher? I know my skin gets really dry after swimming.   You could also have her write a poem for them. with the letters of their name EX: Mrs Smith could get    

Mrs

S-smart

M-makes me smile

I- I like when you read to me

T-Thank you for being such a great teacher

H-Hope you have a good summer   (she might need some help. but it could be fun)

lots of really cute ideas on pinterest too, if you're feeling crafty

I like the beach towel, sunscreen, magazine, and a snack tied up with a ribbon

magazine, beach towel, mini sunscreen, ribbon, treats.  Teachers last day of school

or something like this (that would add up way too quickly)

I love the 1st Idea!!!! That would make the perfect swim teacher gift!!! Hopefully Kohls will send out the 10$ coupons so I can use them to get the towels . LOL I love those coupons!!!
