I needed some small gifts for helpers that have come into my room this year to work with some of the kids and found these cute clip-on air fresheners:
They had the birds in blue too. I got several of each color and packed them up with a card that said: Thank you for being so "tweet"!
Or this... with a card saying "I couldn't have "picked" a better teacher (or friend, or co-worker, etc...)
After that I got apple antibacterial soap for my daughter's teachers. Her school is very heavy in Fine Arts and for electives she takes drama, chorale, dance, art, Life Skills, Structures (building structures), French, Kinder Coach (they work with the Kindergarten classes), Library and honestly, I am probably forgetting something. This is in addition to her regular courses! Anyway, the point being, she has a LOT of teachers and I do not have a lot of money so this worked out for all of those "extra" teacher gifts. I had a coupon for $10 off and got 10 bottles of apple soap for $25.00. Bath & Body Works had cello bags that they gave me to put the soap in and I went to Michaels to get ribbon to tie the bags up. I printed some clear labels that said "Thanks for being a great teacher!" with an apple on them and stuck those to the bottom of the bag. (You can see one of the finished bags in the photo at the beginning of this post.)
I also stopped at Michaels and got some stationery sets for some of her other teachers. They had matching notebooks, notepads, pens and sticky note sets plus bags that matched:
I am still thinking of gifts for the girls on my team....any ideas????
