Ahhhhh it is that time of year, eh?! Ya know, when you start scrambling like hell to get your kids’ teacher(s) a respectable present? Ive been on the other end of it, so here are some suggestions (including my ridiculous sayings) right from the horses mouth 🙂
“Thanks for your KINDness”– These yummy bars are great for on the go and if you have a few extra buck$, add in a small Whole Foods gift card for good measure 🙂
THIS MUG– OMG I would have LOVED to get this mug. And for only 12 bucks! A no brainer! I think people shy away from mugs thinking that everyone has too many, but teachers LOVE a good teacher mug to sip on that OMGCOFFEE all AM while teaching. And the saying on this one could not be more true!
“Thanks for making me one smart cookie!”– Get an adorable reusable all-purpose jar and fill with cookies (homemade or store-bought…I also LOVE Hopes Cookies or Insomnia). Make a cute tag with the above statement and your child’s teacher will enjoy for sure!
A nice tote– Each year, I would get a new tote for school use. Trust me, I needed a new one each year 🙂 I LOOOOVE this one with an initial. Can’t beat it for less than $20! SUPER into this one too. (also less than $20)
“For the teacher who candles it all!”– This amazing candle will last forever and smells better than anything you can imagine. In fact, it is the only one I burn in my bed and bathroom. Trust me. I just got the big size for myself after burning through the smaller one in a matter of days. This would be a FAB present for any teacher. They deserve to smell the spa at home!
“You’re always one step ahead”– A gift card for a pedi (or mani). I would have LOVED this as a summer prep and relaxation gift! You could also give a super cute kit like this one:
“Thank you for quenching my thirst for knowledge!” These adorable water bottles with drink mix (price will vary based on the container you choose). I LOVE these fruit infused water containers.
“Thanks for being a helping hand”– this can be accompanied by a nice hand lotion (low budget), a basket with hand products such as softening mittens and cream (mid-budget) or a massage gift certificate (high budget).
“Have a sun-derful summer!”Summer Fun Basket- Fill with things such as a beach towel, sunscreen, magazine, etc.
A personalized framed gift– I am OBSESSED with this idea I JUST saw online. Bummer- will do next year. But here is an ADORABLE idea.
Restaurant gift cards are great. I particularly like one with a good pun…
And finally, can’t go wrong with a Target gift card! But this adorable add-on is what really takes the cake!
PS: Many of this gifts are PRIME one day shipping available because…well, as moms, we need this! Nothing like last minute!!! Enjoy and feel free to add your own in the comments!
