The Secret to a Terrific Teacher Gift

Audrey ThumbnailAmid a flurry of holiday preparations, many parents are searching for the perfect gift for their child’s teacher. It can be a daunting task to figure out what your child’s teacher would like.

If you’re at a loss, check out Christmas Gifts for Teachers (h/t to Motherlode), a website with plenty of advice and ideas for teacher gifts. The best part, as far as I’m concerned, is their poll of teachers and parents, which reveals which gifts teachers would most like to receive (gift cards, books/music, classroom supplies) and which ones they really hope they don’t get (mugs, ornaments/decorative items, candles/lotion).

For another approach, check out The Skinny Scoop to find out what other people are saying about teacher gifts or to ask other moms for advice specific to your situation or locale.

Whatever the gift, don’t forget to write a note thanking your child’s teacher, including specifics about the things you’ve really appreciated.

The therapeutic methods suggested by Jennifer Kolari are based not on simple-minded behavioural solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws, but also for our own larger ones."
