Time flies, I cannot believe it is almost officially summer. This also means that the end of the school year is just around the corner.
I give my sons’ teachers gifts twice a year – once around the holidays in December and once at the end of the school year.
Around the holidays I usually look for a keepsake plate or container and fill it up with home-baked goodies such as truffles, cookies, brownies and bars. Scarves are wonderful and so versatile. If I am not organized enough to bake, I buy pretty scarves for the teachers.
At the end of the school year I always buy a Chapters/Indigo gift card for every teacher.
I have heard from past teachers about how much they appreciate and enjoy this gift card. There is so much variety in the store – home decor, accessories, coffee, tea, chocolates, books, magazines, stationery, kids’ stuff etc. – truly something for everyone. Especially if you don’t know the teachers’ tastes too well this ends up working out well.
How about you? Do you have a gift giving tradition to show your kids’ teachers appreciation or do you mix it up each year? Do you give each teacher the same gift?
