Since we all know that once fall begins, Christmas is just around the corner, and we would LOVE to be ahead of the curve when it comes to finding special gifts for the important people in our lives, here’s a little help to get the ball rolling. And let’s focus on the teachers!
My sis is a 25-year veteran teacher, so I’ve asked her to share some gift ideas she thought most teachers would love. After all we are all thankful for the hard work teachers put in to teach our kids.
But first, let’s talk about that time she had student dismissal /pick-up duty on the last day of school. Here’s the scene: on a very hot day in south Florida, with 25 of her own students, and then the others thrown into the mix, she waited for antsy parents to drive up to pickup their child to start SUMMER!
Kathy, with hair dripping from south Florida humidity, was half-way finished with her dismissal duties, when a black car pulled up with a dad inside. As the car approached, a child shouted, “That’s my DAD!!!!” Once Kathy verified little “Billy’s” proper ownership, a hairy arm extended from the car holding …. a bottle of CHAMPAGNE. Not in a gift box. Not in a bag. The gruff voice from the car said, “Have a great summer.” He dropped the bottle into her outstretched and surprised hands, and drove away. And there she stood in the parent pick-up line, holding a bottle of champagne, as the parents arrived….
Teachers, as they all know, receive a thousand bath gels and hundreds of coffee cups and candles at Christmas time, and at the end of the school year. But NEVER do they receive champagne. I guess little Billy’s dad was just grateful, or maybe he felt sorry for my sister, and wanted somehow to repay her for her sacrificial kindness toward his son. Or maybe he just happened to have an extra bottle of champagne in his car, and thought, at the last minute, that he should gift this sweat wet mop of a woman some kind of token of appreciation.
But for now, let’s think about the cool, crispness of winter, the glistening snow, baking cookies, and enjoying those treasured days of peace called Christmas break.
With that, here are a few of Kathy’s top picks for this year’s teachers. (This post contains affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosures here.)
Stress Away Essential Oil Roll-on. Need I to say more? But yes, the teacher will thank you for this one.
And I know we’ve already covered 42 options, but, back to little “Billy’s” story at the beginning, if you’re a parent with a kid like Billy, maybe this is an option for you. (wink, wink)
Seriously, I hope some of these ideas got your gifting gears churning! If you have any additional ideas you love, please drop a comment below and share! And don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter!
