gifts for teachers

Y’all have given me so many good ideas for gift guides, so that’s one reason it’s been gift guide heavy this week!  I thought I’d also tell you how I organize for holiday gift giving.  Nothing groundbreaking but … I always create a google spreadsheet that includes each person on our list, I brainstorm ideas, stick to a budget, and then check that person off once it’s purchased.  I share the spreadsheet with JB for input too.  For teachers we have them fill out something like this – as one of the room moms, I send it out to all of the parents in case they plan on giving a gift.  It helps if you are getting something monogrammed, or to get them something geared toward their interests.  I hear most teachers say “gift cards!”  and we have done that plus a little something personal.  And a nice note from us with one I dictate from my son!  Here are a few of those ideas:

  1.  When I was in anthropologie a few weeks ago I saw this bag.  It also doubles as a little clutch.  It would be a great size, I imagine, for a teacher.  It comes in a bunch of different colors/patterns.
  2. This notepad set from Emily McCarthy shoppe is one of my favorites.  It’s $45, and comes with a bunch of different sizes.
  3.  These personalized clipboards from C.Jayne Teach – one side is a dry erase board.
  4. C.Jayne Teach also makes the personalized buffalo check notepad.
  5. Some cute earrings that are good for day time and simple for night.
  6. Best Teacher Ever pencils
  7.  A personalized pencil cups – you could wrap it up with the gift card inside.
  8.  personalized notepad.  
  9. A reader told me that one of her most treasured gifts was a book her class made with answers to questions about her from each of her students.  That could be a somewhat easy task – if you sent it out email form, and then had everyone send back their responses.
  10.  Most responses from actual teachers were starbucks giftcards!

Are you a teacher?  What’s your favorite gift from a student?  Or have you given a well received gift by a teacher?  I would love to know more!
