It’s that time of year again: kids are antsy for summer vacation.  We, as parents, know that  teachers worked hard all year educating our rug rats.  I believe that teachers deserve a gift at the end of the year but if you want to make sure you are not giving them one of 20 candles this year, here are a few suggestions for good and bad gifts for the teachers.

Good Gift Ideas

  • Gift Cards
  • Classroom Supplies
  • Hand Sanitizer (I asked!)
  • Homemade gifts like notes and cards
  • Mug Cozies (for those chilly mornings)

|Bad Gift Ideas

  • Mugs! They really, really don’t want them.
  • Plaques
  • Napkins
  • Candles, they got a closet full of them believe me
  • Soaps (They might have an allergy)
