Show Us Your Life: Teacher Gifts

Mommy knows a thing or two about teacher gifts. During the 6 years she spent in the classroom, she received her fair share of heartfelt presents. In her opinion, the best gift you can give your child's teacher (or your own teacher) is a letter of thanks. Not just a thank you card with your name signed on the bottom (although those are nice, too), but a real letter. Teachers save these letters to reread when the going gets tough. Promise.

And if you're just itching to include something of material value with that letter, consider one of these.


But whatever you do, don't even think about giving one of these to your child's teacher.
It's just not something that should be found on a teacher's desk.

No, Mommy never received a Grand Assortment like this from a student...but her friend, Kelly sure did!

That is hysterical! Why would you give someone you entrust to care for your child 8 hrs of the day ANYTHING LIQUOR FILLED?

Great ideas, I'm getting together Teacher Appreciation gifts now! So far I got them personalized coffee mugs, I think we'll fill them with candy. Faith said they'd like that and I want her to add her special touch. :)

Love the letter idea and I know I have done the giftcards in the past, so good to know they are appreciated!

Hahah for a minute I thought those chocolates were a package of bullets and I wondered why on EARTH anyone would think they were an appropriate gift! Not that alcoholic chocolates are much better!

I have some notes from my parents/students from when I was teaching. It makes me smile to go back and reread them.
