I visited a friend who taught elementary school for years and when I commented on the number of apple bells, candles and plaques in her home, she laughingly showed me a box filled with dozens more teacher-centric doo-dads.
While I know she cherished every student and every thoughtful gesture, sometimes your teacher may enjoy something that gives her a fun or relaxing experience for the holiday break.
Below are a few of my favorite experince gifts that give your teacher down-time over the Christmas break. (With nary an apple anywhere in site!)
Movie passes and a box of Junior Mints will give them a (much needed) matinee over the break.
A trio of her favorite flavored popcorn, along with a note to enjoy some Netflix or Hallmark Channel binge watching gives your teacher homework they will relish.
A gift certificate for a pedicure, and a bottle of your favorite red polish, is the perfect pampering gift for the person who is helping shape your most precious responsibility.
Whatever you give, attach a note or original “art” from your child explaining why Santa is putting their special teacher on the Nice list this year.
Because every teacher loves gratitude as part of their holiday gift!
