I really hope my son's teacher doesn't read my blog. She's never mentioned anything, but we are friends on FB now and I post over there. I hope she'll be waaaay too busy with the last week of school to pay any attention over here.
I've said that I struggle with the procrastination monster, and this year I managed to get my act together well before I had to have it that way! If you are still in the last week of school and suddenly remembered that you wanted to give your child's teacher a gift, let me give you just one or two ideas.
What I did this year:
For my daughter's teachers, I got them each a mug (solid color, no silly "best teacher ever" mug from me!) and included Tension Tamer tea and a Bible Promise book and bookmark. Simple and Sweet. The little tag (which I attached to a cut-off straw) says "You've filled our cup with joy, praying yours is overflowing! Hope your summer is a "Tension Tamer"! Thank you for a great year."
Both teachers seemed to really love it!
What are some of your best ideas? The others I thought of were a beach bag with some gossip magazines (because she reads those things) and maybe some sun tan lotion and a gift certificate or two to Starbucks or Jamba Juice (a Smoothie chain round these parts). I went simple because I am cheap. It's a true story. Another possibility is to get her a cute potted plant and new pot with some gardening things with a tag that says "Thank you for helping me grow" or something like that.
Just depends on your teacher's tastes. Hope you get that gift or at least a card to say "Thank you"
Hug a teacher this week!
