Make a Game Plan

Think about the relationship your child has with each teacher, and decide if that warrants a “unique” gift with a personal-touch, or a small gesture that can be bought in “bulk” and then divvied-up and given to multiple teachers/administrators. And decide if time is on your side when determining if you should tackle hand-made gifts or go store-bought. Here are some ideas for all types.

Buy in Bulk and Add a Personal Touch

  1. Gift cards for coffee, treats or lunch.
  2. Unique school supplies – teachers love supplies, so don’t be shy with finding a few supplies and then bundling them together.
  3. Candy – homemade candy or treats can be personal, or buy unique store-bought treats.
  4. Plants — look for plants that are adorable and petite, and don’t require too much attention.
