teacher gifts

Please say “no” to cheesy holiday mugs & teacher trinkets!  Consider gifts that disappear…consumables!

  1. purchase a few baking ingredients & attach your child’s favorite cookie recipe (great source:
  2. $5 gift card to a coffee shop attached to a homemade card
  3. movie basket – microwave popcorn, box of candy, bottled drink
  4. hot cocoa basket with mix, marshmallows & snack
  5. tea goodies – loose tea in different flavors, biscotti, sugar cubes
  6. salad dressing & marinade with recipes attached (great source:
  7. crock pot recipe with all non-perishable ingredients in gift box

Or, gifts contributing to their profession:

  • sticker or stamps
  • gift card to a teacher supply store
  • post-its, personalized stationary
  • nice pens, markers, highlighters
  • inspirational quote calendar for educators
  • hand written note of appreciation & thanks
