Gifts to Make for Teachers
When you make gifts for your child’s teachers you will be putting a little bit of yourself into each gift. It will be personalized for her and not something that she will receive from 10 other students. Try to make the gifts useful, like making her a grocery bag. She would think of you every time she used the bag to carry home groceries. Think how many years it would last. Now that many teachers are getting an iPad and other types of tablets, they might need to have a sleeve to protect it. These ideas and others can be found in these five blog posts.

Gifts to Buy for Teachers
Sometimes teachers receive a lot of gifts that they can’t really use. How many candles do you really need? When asked, teachers will most likely say that it’s the thought that counts, but if they are honest they would tell you that gift cards are always appreciated. These five blog entries share ideas for gifts using store bought items put together in a creative way.
