Teachers Want More Than Apples

Nov 24, 2007
How many mugs can one teacher have?? Get creative this year and make the teachers of your children happy and feel a little more appreciated!

Summer Tote
Summer is always just around the corner for a teacher! Give them a tote bag filled with all kinds of summertime fun. Flip flops, Frisbees, sun visor, beach balls, sunscreen and a gift card for a pedicure will really get her in the mood.

If it has to be Coffee
If it has to be coffee for your favorite teacher then create a theme basket with all the best accessories for a coffee drinker Fill it with syrup, coffee beans, biscotti, and a gift card to local Starbucks

Movie Night
Buy a big popcorn bowl and fill it with microwave popcorn packages, seasonings, and a gift certificate to the movie rental shop in your area. Teachers love to veg out as much as the rest of us!

Lunch!
Send an invitation with your child on Monday asking heir teacher to join them for lunch on Friday. Pick up a gourmet meal from a local restaurant and serve it to them in the cafeteria or classroom. Anything is better then eating what the lunch lady made so make it fun and healthy. It will also give you an opportunity to get to know your childs teacher on a one on one basis.

Spa Package
Teachers have little or no time to relax. If you can, consult with other parents and chip in for a spa weekend for your favorite teacher. Or, buy her gift certificates for massages, facials, or manicures and give her some personal time to take care of herself for a change.

Photo Album
Personalize a photo album using pictures of the children in the class. Each child can create a page for their teacher that highlights the fun they are having and what they especially love about being in that class. This is a one of a kind treasure that any teacher will love.

A Week of Small Gifts
A candy bar on Monday, breakfast the next, a bright orange rose, a deck of cards, and a pack of microwave popcorn when they make it Friday. It does not matter what the gift is or how much it costs. The fun of having something each day will be a treat for your childs teacher.

Teachers spend a great deal of time with your children each week. Let them know that you appreciate them and all they do for you and your childs future. Go out of your way to give thoughtful and useful gifts to the teachers in your life!
