I have 82 teachers/helpers/nurses/staff to buy
Thank yous for.

82.

Honestly, I have paired it down to 22 that I think is fair.
Do I need to give to equine teacher?? Or woodshop?
I think I can skip those.

Still 22 is off putting too! Ugh

They'd be receiving baked goods or fruit baskets to share with a card.

Thats hard due to so many different shifts. Some nurses only work nights (Sam has had 2 viruses puking at nurses station) some work weekends (Ive had to call ask questions.
I dont want to leave any of them out. There are 14 of them!
The Dorm staff too. Day/Night/weekend. There are 5 of them. Rumor has it they are srsly underpaid. I want to do something nice.

It is what it is.

Would you think $5.00 DnD, Starbucks & Trader Joes gift cards for the nursing staff would be good?

For the dorm Im thinking $$$$ cash, but worry thats tacky.

I think it'd be a nice gesture and straight Cash is always beneficial.

Go to Michaels and buy some clear glass ornaments and some glass paint or craft paint and have Sam drizzle and swirl the paint inside making beautifully unique as well as inexpensive gifts.

Its a pretty diverse group. I don’t think everyone celebrates Christmas.
But those are beautiful! :) I might try those for other friends! Thanks!

The ABA center Cheyanne goes isnt allowed to accept gifts so Im not buying for any therapist/teacher this year. I may get gifts for the volunteers at the autism nonprofit we attend though.
