The end of the school year is right around the corner (small tear rolls down my cheek), and it is about time that I start planning for my children’s teacher gifts. These are my suggestions for great teacher gifts, beyond another coffee cup or apple-shaped whatever.
I love going to local shops and picking up fun, delicious gifts. I know if I was a teacher, this is what I would want to receive. Here are three great places around the Valley where you can just stop in and grab a small, but pretty gift. (These also work great for housewarming gifts when you don’t want to bring another bottle of wine.)
Another easy idea is giving a gift card to some place teachers can use during summer break. Almost anyone would like a gift card to 1) Target, 2) Movie theater tickets or 3) A local restaurant. If you have several teachers to buy for (me raising my hand), hit up Costco for one of their packs of gift cards and get a bit of a deal too.
Also, getting something personalized such as monogramed paper or notecards is something everyone needs but rarely buys for themselves. There are a lot of places online where you can get this done, and they always have promotional coupons.
I think any teacher would be thrilled with one of these ideas. Pair it with a homemade card or picture from your child, and you are all set for the last week of school.
