Ugh. School starts today. I hate it! I love having my girls home with me during the Summer and totally miss them when they go back to school. I can’t stand eating lunch by myself everyday. Do you send in a gift to the teacher on the first day? My girls always took a bouquet of flowers for their teacher. Of course we are out of elementary school…. which makes the gift giving a little more difficult/void. Some of my favorites ideas are….
A bunch of highlighters in a metal bucket with a note attatched that reads “you are the highlight of our year”.
A great set of notepads…preferably personalized….Check out Monogram Me….and take $10 off of your Monogram Me order when you add personalized paper to your order (through August 31st).
Another great personalized gift is a stamp. Teachers love these! They can stamp their books, notes, and more.
Candy is always nice. How about a giant container of LifeSavers with a note that says “you are a lifesaver”? Another great idea is a teacher survival kit. You can either make your own or buy one. I love the Shemergency Kit. It has everything from advil, lotion, sewing kit, and breath freshener to tampons..quite a handy little bag. If you need a fairly low cost gift for someone this is a life-saver for only $20.
Another great one is the The On The Go Kit . This is a small little tin that contains an emery board, dental flossers, sewing kit, hairband, bandages, and stain wipes. The quick fix for things that happen away from home! For $9.50 you can stick some money for the vending machine in it and your teacher will be thrilled!
