last year dd and i made a vase with colored pencils, not sure what we are doing this year.
Nothing. The classes each have wishlists for the entire class that parents can donate to for Christmas.
Stuff like classroom supplies and other things that would have to come out of the teacher's pocket.
As a teacher, I love getting baked goods, gift cards to Target or restaurants or photos of the class.
I'm also a teacher, but I'm scared of home-baked goods. Of course, I also work in the ghetto, and never know what's going to be in them. Seriously. I've received some questionable stuff over the years.
A gift card is never a bad thing, though!
Quoting Mesh2:As a teacher, I love getting baked goods, gift cards to Target or restaurants or photos of the class.
I had a parent buy me a pair of very cute shoes one year. I felt really bad because they were way too small.
Gift card to Dunkin!
Quoting needadvice1983:I'm sorry, but when did this trend start? I don't ever remember my parents giving my teachers gifts. It's a nice gesture and all but I can't afford to give them presents every year. Besides I give the class a ton of school supplies throughout the year (I coupon so I get stuff for free and donate it to the classrooms). Now I'm suppose to give them school supplies, help out in the class each week, AND give the teachers gifts at the beginning of school, Christmas, and the end of school? That is crazy. I apprieciate my DS's teachers, but I can barely afford Christmas gifts for my kids. I do a lot for the teacher throughout the year. That should be gift enough. Jmo
