I am going to keep it real.... and tell you some of the favorite gifts I have gotten...SHARPIES are always nice!!!! There is NOT a teacher in this world that would NOT love a bouquet of COLORFUL sharpies!!! Giftcards are good choices too!!!! ONE THING I do suggest is to make sure your teacher likes coffee before investing in a "coffee" store giftcard!!! Don't get me wrong...I love the thought and my dad thanks you too because he LOVES coffee!!! Lottery scratch offs...yeah and I won $10 bucks!!! Cute lanyards are good too!!! I was really jealous one year, because the teacher across the hall had a mom that sent her a Favorites Survey... AND THEN all year my teacher friend got all kinds of personal goodies off of her Favorites Survey!!!! in all seriousness....REALLY any gift from my kiddos...comes from the heart and that makes my heart sing!!!
