Bella the Ball 360 said:As a teacher, I can say the best gifts I get are gift cards especially to book stores or teacher supply stores. However, and I did this with my own boys, PLEASE have your child write a note expressing what he or she feels about the teacher.
My son's first grade teacher saved his and when my second son had her he also wrote. She retired last year (my boys are 17 and 21 now) and when my son went to say goodbye she pulled out the notes she had saved all those years.
Also as another poster said please no #1 Teacher items. I have even fobidden my own mother from buying me things like this. What do you do with all that stuff?? You do not want to throw it away but it just overwhelms either the classroom or the home.

I LOVE the plant, pot idea - and if its ok I would love to use this! I may do something a bit smaller but that is just terrific.
Thanks for sharing that ~
eta - I am totally craft challenged, what do you use to print on the pots?? Sorry I am so clueless on crafts - tia
