I appreciate any gift I get from students, but many of them end up at my local SPCA's thrift shop. I am not a candle person, makes my allergies act up, so while I would send a nice thank you card, it's not something that I would actually use. Same thing with Bath&Body Works type items.

I've mentioned here on the DIS before that I once received a red thong from a student for Valentine's Day Don't know what type of thought was put into that one, but the teacher I am departmentalized with got the same thing. We joked that we would have to wear them on the same day. So while I appreciate the thought, not everything will be as practical for all people.

I teach 7th grade so I don't usually get a lot of gifts. The ones I like the best are handwritten/drawn cards from my students. A small gift card for a local eating establishment so on days when school lunch is yucky or I forget my lunch, I have a "free" lunch. Also, books or games for my classroom.

Well, if you know that your childs' teachers get manicures, it would be great. I don't do manicures. I can't afford it and also don't like other people massaging my hands and feet anyway. I would rather have gc to Target or to a school supply store.

It's the thought that counts but candles cause my allergies to go haywire. It seems to be a very popular gift and I receive several every year.

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I love Yankee candles and so for the first few years I had a child in school that was what I bought for each of the teachers. Then I started reading the disboards and now I just do a gift card for either Borders or Barnes and Noble. I figure most teachers are readers and if not, there are games, movies, music and usually a cafe. I think Target would be a great gift card as well. For my daughter's preschool teacher I was thinking what I should really get her is a bottle of wine, but I don't know if she actually drinks! If I were teaching that classthat's what I would want.
