Why do parents give these gifts? What Teachers Really Want for the Holidays.
Oh, another painful holiday season of seeing of bloggers putting together punny and cheesey holiday gifts, when they could have used their money to give their kids’ teachers gifts they really wanted or needed.
Another teacher’s gift abandoned at Goodwill below.
Some things on the list written by a teacher:
- a good bottle of wine
- good quality coffee beans or tea
- gift cards from stores or restaurants they like
- hand written notes/cards
- parents who care
- recognition for a job well done
Gift Cards are one of the things teachers really appreciate – especially since many are barely making a living wage. Put down the mason jar with glued pencils and the hanging wood apple charm and spend the money (any amount no matter how small will be appreciated) on Gift Cards. Here are some excellent DIY Teacher Appreciation Cards Free Printables from Chickabug.
