Teacher Gift Ideas for the Holidays and Beyond.

As the holidays approach, I was stuck trying to think of teacher gift ideas for my girls’ kindergarten and daycare teachers.

So I turned to my good friends on Twitter. I love having a sounding board for ideas be it marketing related or for holiday gift ideas. Feedback so far – candy/food, scarf/hat, handmade items from child like jewelry or card.

Last year I got Target gift cards so they could either buy for themselves or for the classroom.

Once idea I like from the web sites below is a gift basket filled with school supplies/books for the class. There is also an appreciative wall poster about teaching that a teacher can put on the wall in the classroom.

I guess the underlying message is that teachers like being appreciated and we can show them through our children’s eyes in simple, inexpensive ways.

 I checked Google search as well and found a neat ecofriendly gift site as my daughter’s kindergarten teacher is very earth friendly.
