Asking YOU a Question Blog Hop - Help! Teacher Gift Ideas

If I hadn't been dealing with cute little sickos for a week and if I wasn't so tired, I probably could have come up with a truly profound question. However, I really would love some ideas/help in this area:

What are you giving/have you given for teacher gifts (christmas, end of the year)? I especially need some help with PE Coach gifts!

Ugh! This was always a hard one for me when my kids were little. My sister was always so creative and would make these wonderful gifts for her kid's teachers. I always wound up getting them gift certificates to Borders!

When I taught second grade years and years ago, I liked things that I didn't have to keep. By that I mean things that I may or not need or would sit around taking up space. My husband used to have an aversion to what he called "dust collectors."

I liked receiving food gifts such as homemade Christmas cookies, fudge, banana bread, caramel corn, etc. I appreciated the student thinking of me without getting something that would sit around my house for years. I also liked gift certificates.

For the classroom teacher a gift card to a book store is very appreciated. No coffee mugs or lotion for sure!

Aren't you sweet to get your kids' teachers gifts! My husband is a teacher and it is always great to see that the parents appreciate him. I know we always appreciate when he gets gift cards to the movie theater. With the movies being so expensive, not to mention the snacks, a gift card is always welcome. Plus they can see whichever movie they want and get whatever snacks they want. So as long as they like to go to a movie once in a a while, I would say this is a good option! Pretty much the only time DH and I go to the movies is when we have a gift card!

Hi! I hope your kids are doing great now.

My answer to the question is
1. a card
2. a gift card, to a restaurant, a supermarket, or a store

Thanks for dropping a line at my blog I do appreciate it much.

I had the same question. I hear a lot of teachers say a gift card for a bookstore or coffee. Christina at Pooh's corner posted a great treat idea to make them. On my THIS AND THAT post I have the link if you want to take a look!
