With the end of the school year just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about giving thanks to the men and women who helped our children grow this year--their teachers. Even if the classmom collects a few dollars from every student, handing your son or daughters teacher a small, personal gift is a nice way to give appreciation for all they did throughout the school year.
Here are some of my favorite ideas:
"Thanks for making this school year feel like a day at the beach!"
Christmas Tree Shoppes has some inexpensive beach towels that you can pair with a magazine and bottle of sunscreen for a very usable teachers gift.
"Thank you for helping me grow this year!"
Pick up an inexpensive potted plant and a few bottles of paint, and you can make this very personal gift for your childs teacher. They will be abe to reuse the pot for years to come. Pair with a $5 gift card for an added touch.
"You are oFISHally the most awesome teacher ever!"
Grab a bottle of soda or water and a package of swedish fish, and you have a very inexpensive thank you gift that can easily be customized for anyone else you may want to give an end-of-the-year gift to (think: nurse, bus driver, etc.)
"Thanks for making me one smart cookie!"
Whip up a batch of your best cookies and package them for a delicious thank you gift for your child's teacher.
