Teacher gifts - what to give?

Posted November 28, 2010 11:20 p.m. EST

What are you giving to teachers this holiday? Any frugal suggestions?

If you are a teacher, please let us know what you would love to receive!

Click on the link in the box for an article with some good suggestions from a teacher. On the top of the "Don't need any more of these" list: Best Teacher mugs and candles.

As the author of the article suggested, I am thinking of putting together gift bags for the teachers of my elementary school student with needed classroom items like crayons, copy paper, Lysol wipes, highlighters, tissues, sidewalk chalk, etc. Many of these are items I already have from great before-school sales and many are items I can purchase frugally with sales and coupons. Although I do hear she likes chocolate, as well. May need to include some of my favorite Hershey's peppermint kisses! Since her teacher reads this blog.........surprise!

Not sure about the teachers of my middle school student. Not too many crayons being used in pre-algebra!
