Brainstorming: End of Year Gifts for Teachers

I like to give something small and unique to my boys' teachers at the end of the school year. In the past, they have given little handy desk kits (post-it notes, paper clips, pen, etc all done up in a decorative tin), pens, home-made cards for all occasions, crocheted bookmarks with a gift card.... something useful with a personal touch has been the goal.

So, I am starting to think about what to do for the teachers this year... a few of the ideas I am considering are:
  • a door-knob reminder pouch - something to hang on the door knob where they stash those things thay must. not. forget. on the way out the door! 
  • i-tunes gift card - could be for personal or school use as the teachers are all getting i-pads for their classrooms
  • crocheted pencil jar for their desk
  • Something from Discovery Toys, to spread the joy... like one of these options, all available here:
Wiz Kids game could easily be played in the classroom (and everyone can participate at the same time!)....


Mosaic Mysteries and Playful Patterns would both have many uses in the classroom for play as well as for math and art classes....

Games on the Go offers a slew of games in one box (and, as each game is on a separate card, Games on the Go would also make a great classmate gift - one card/game per child with a little note and my child's phone number, to stay in touch over the summer!)....

... Decisions, decisions ;-)
