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….
