Gifts ideas for Teacher's for Christmas

Posted by   + Show Post

If you give gifts to your children's teacher's for Christmas what do you usually give to them?  I am at a loss and need some ideas. 

Teacher's feel free to answer.

Thank you for the ideas!  Very much appreciated!  I think am going to go and do a gift card and some homemade fudge.  My mother's recipe that is really easy to make but is awesome! 

Quoting Sagely:

I'm a teacher.  Stuff I've received that I really enjoyed:

baked goods (someone mentioned fudge...I had a student who made the best fudge I've ever had in my whole entire life).


Starbucks gift card (or any gift card)


Handwritten "thank you" cards


Classroom supplies (arranged creatively)

I am going to do a gift card for a nice place to eat.  They probably get lots of "knick-knacks" and coffee mugs, etc, and I just thought this might be something that my dd's teacher and his wife would enjoy.

I usually get a gift card for a parent/ teacher store and send it in a homemade card

Get more tips on how to buy Gifts online  like Trinket boxes are perfect to keep jewels and other trinkets. The adornments on the top of the trinket boxes vary according to the designers and clients whims and fancies. Make charming gifts to celebrate a special occasion or simply to brighten someone's day.

I usually give the teachers a $25 Panera giftcard for Christmas.

This year, ds' teacher said no gifts for her. She wrote in the weekly newsletter that she's on the board of a local charity, so if we'd like to honor her, to clean out a closet or something over break and think of that charity...either donate items ourselves or bring them in for her to take there. They take some gently used things, I guess, as well as new socks/undies and they try to give each kid a pair of new shoes every year. So I was going to buy shoes, but then decided that since I don't know what size/kind is most needed, perhaps a monetary donation might be a better choice. So I'm writing a check tomorrow for $25 to the charity, putting it in an envelope saying it's a donation in honor of our awesome 2nd grade teacher, and tucking that into the teacher's Christmas card that ds picked out, so she can drop it off. We couldn't just give her *nothing* for herself, though...so I bought her a $10 Starbucks card.
