The 5 Gifts Your Kid’s Teacher Really Wants

The 5 Gifts Your Kid’s Teacher Really Wants. So, it’s Teacher Appreciation Week next week at my Zoe’s school, so I’ve been looking around for some gift ideas that they’d really appreciate. (Editor’s note: If I had to teach 24 kindergartners with as much enthusiasm and grace as these two…well…it would not be with enthusiasm and grace.)

After asking around and getting some honest answers (you know, unlike the wooden responses of “oh, thank you for that Dollar Store smelly candle that I know perfectly well you’re re-gifting.”) the list of favorites runs something like this…

5. Baked Goodness: if you can’t make it yourself, a gift card to a killer bakery is perfect.

4. Something you know they want for the classroom: a specific book, art supplies, music.

3. Something directly from your little person.  They know their teacher.

2. Gift cards.  When in doubt, go with cash and gift cards.  Never too small, always the right size.  I’m not kidding.  You know what they get paid.

1. A sincere, heartfelt letter.  With specifics of how your child’s lfe has been changed by their classroom.  (And a gift card.)
