One year I had to pick up something at the home of our DD's 2nd grade teacher (we were on a church committee together). She had 3 FULL TREES of Christmas Ornaments from students. While she liked them she said that she had boxes of them and would rotate which ones got put out each year.I found a great craft website that had ideas for homemade gifts. I am thinking DS and I will make his teacher and aide a homemade ornament and then include a card to Target and a card to Starbucks.
This is true. But nurses actually love food. (Strange, I know.)No food. I know most teachers do not want food.
Who here does not love Target?!I kind of think it's less about what you get than the thought behind it. A gift card is always nice. But you'll never get complete agreement here (someone always doesn't like something) so pick something you think will work and go for it. You could also ask someone at school who knows her what she likes (like maybe she comes to work every day with a Starbucks or something like that). Good luck.
Right there with you. I'm a school nurse and I love to get homemade cookies,banana bread, candies. I also like flowers, a free lunch(!), and letters from children. My desk faces a wall which I decorate with cards, letters, and pictures drawn by my students. It just lightens my heart every day.This is true. But nurses actually love food. (Strange, I know.)
1st grade teacher chiming in.My neighbor is an elementary school teacher. I love Christmas and teh end of the school year when SHE gets all her gifts....because I get half of them. I get the lotions, candles, bad candy. She' s been a teacher for over 30 years and has all the candles and lotion one can handle.
So.....I'm thinking gift cards are the way to go.
