I don't know about you, but I like to send in a little something for the teachers on the first day of school. I think it starts the year off on the right foot, and lets be honest, a little bribery never hurt anyone!
Honestly, I just want the teacher to know that I appreciate the effort they have put in to getting the classroom and lessons ready.
But while I enjoy getting a small gift each year, sometimes I feel like my gift card and box of tissues doesn't seem all that original. I know that they still appreciate the thought, but I want to do something more creative. So this year, I set out to get some cool ideas and I am sharing the ones I found with you!
10. One idea I thought of was to buy some nice honey or a honey gift basket with a note that said, "I'm So Glad You're going To BEE My Teacher!". Maybe I would include a small gift card to a cute gift shop too.
9. Love this idea of wrapping a nice calculator with the message, "According to My Calculations, It's Going to be a Great Year!".
8. A pack of seeds and gardening gloves with a note that says, "Teachers Impart the Seeds of Knowledge That Grow Forever."
This paper is a list of his/her favorite things, like favorite pizza place, favorite soda, favorite color, his/her hobby, favorite candle scent, favorite candy, favorite place to shop, etc.
That way, when it's time for me to send in a gift, I know exactly what he/she will appreciate! Isn't that Genius?! I did it last year and I loved knowing that the teacher would actually be able to enjoy what we were giving her.

And remember, even if you can't afford much, it really is the thought that counts. Just let your teacher know that you are glad to be in the class and that you appreciate them! That is what will really make their day!
