Holiday Gifts for Teachers

The Teacher:

Teachers do not want lotion, candles or another coffee mug.  They want something useful like cold hard cash or gift cards.  Let them choose something they really want or have been lusting after.  Do not give them something for their classroom, you wouldn’t give your postman, stamps or your cleaning lady some windex to to do her job, would you?

Find out what they like ahead of time by having the teacher fill out a “My Favorite Things”  list and distribute it to all the parents, this will take all the stress out of guessing.  Do they have a dog, love to travel, knit, plays golf etc… so even your gift cards can be thoughtful and focused around his/her hobbies and interests.

My favorite way to give a gift card is through Tiny Prints, you order a Christmas Card, customize it with your teacher’s name, special greeting, child’s name and then at check out you can select a gift card to go with it.  Your teacher can redeem their TangoCard for any retailer of his/her choice or your teacher can donate the money to his/her favorite charity.  It’s brilliant, I give it a A+

You can also think outside of the box and get creative with tickets to local activities, sporting events, restuarants or a spa.   Another favorite of mine is gift cards to the  movies, a teacher can always use a time out and will always appreciate the “Silence”.

To make sure you are listening to my gift giving advice….

  1. My best gift as a teacher was a TJMAXX gift card. My worse gift as a treacher was another Christmas snowman thing.

  2. The worst gift was a fuschia colored “furry” purse – furry like Elmo furry! The best was a digital camera! A million pictures of the kiddies later…

  3. The best was a doll I had wanted and begged my mom for. I wasn’t sure if I would get it because it was expensive for the time.

    The worst was a care bear sweatshirt when I was sixteen from a Grandma that was out of touch with my life.

  4. The best gift was a dollhouse that I had been begging for. The worst was an awful yellow sweatsuit.

  5. Let’s see the best gift I’ve gotten would have to be when I was 12 I received a whole Costco box of Bubbelicious gum. I remember being SO excited about it.

  22. The best Christmas gift I ever recieved was the Tiffany & Co. Eternal Circle pendant – the hubs and I were engaged, living in a tiny apartment in the city & I had just moved hundreds of miles to be with him. It still means so much to me.
    The worst gift I have ever recieved – a GNC giftcard from my dad. Because, I was “putting on some lbs”. And yes, that’s what he wrote on it!!

  23. I love this. My daughter has been wondering what to get her 2nd grade teacher who she absolutely ADORES! This is perfect. My fave gift is always jewelry.

  24. The best Christmas gift I ever got was from a very close friend of mine. He knew how much I loved to cook and he bought me a large set of the emeril pots and pans. This was a long time ago , but I still have those pans because they are so great. The worst present I ever got was from my husband. Sad to say, was a necklace in yellow gold(which I hate) and with a prayer and cross on it. I am not particular religious.
