What Are You Giving for Holiday Teacher Gifts?
What type of holiday gift do you give? It is a dilemma faced every year times 3, 4, 5 or more. When asked, teachers often suggest that parents save their money and give something heartfelt.
~ Gift card from a favorite store for $5-10
~ Bulletin board trim and other items for classrooms
~ Items from the teacher’s “wish list” are great
~ Volunteer to grade papers, file, or make copies
~ Hobby items like scrapbooking, stamping or books
~ Handmade soaps, candles or sweets
~ Note pads or cards tied with a bow
~ Personal poem framed or thank you note
~ Movie passes or video store gift card tossed into a bucket of unpopped microwave popcorn with sodas and candy bars
