Did I accidentally make a tacky choice in gift for teacher? Re thinking.

I was stocking up on my cookie tins candy boxes for the adults in my life and figured I'd grab one more tin of danish cookies for my daughter to take to her 6th grade teacher. I stuck a bow on it, a tag that read my DDs name and "happy holidays". After reading a website though, I read that teachers don't want useless gifts but that it's more meaninful to get them supplies or a hand made card from their student. Oops.

I'm sure it's just fine! This is definitely a situation where the thought counts for more than anything else.

I just went to the store yesterday to get cookie tins for the teachers. After the kids get home, we are making their teachers chocolate chip cookies. We do this every year.

I bought a large reusable plastic basket and filled it with fruits and veggies for my dd teachers. I figured food would be a good choice and since i saw atleast four sweets baskets I went for the healthier stuff they added to their likes list in the beginning of the year. They loved it and I am sure your teacher will love yours too.

 Your daughter's teacher will probably get plenty of schoolroom supplies, but glue sticks aren't as tasty as cookies, so I'm betting her teacher will appreciate your gift! ;-)

Cookies are NEVER useless!  I'm a teacher and got cookies today as a gift.  Guess what?  They're gone!  My tummy hurts, but it was sooooo great!  I love those Danish cookies too.  Merry Christmas and Screw weight watchers for the week:)

Cookies are useful!  I think the gifts they are talking about are the #1 teacher nick nacks that sit around collecting dust and teachers have a million of.
