Go Ahead, Hate me.
All of my shopping is complete. I finished the holiday letter this morning and after I proof it, it will be electronically submitted and printed. I just have one more thing to do.
I have my ideas for teacher gifts. This is the last thing on my list. It gets me EVERY year. I know, it isn’t necessary, right? But if you knew what Bugaboo’s teachers and staff did for him? You’d wanna buy them a pony. Or a car. Or a house. They mean that much. Or an elephant, or a whole country or steak or coffee…
So here are a few of my ideas:
Gift certs for the local coffee/convenience store (people who live here LOVE this place)
Sinus pillows (made these last year, but Bugaboo is at a new school so I could easily make them again!)
Thoughts?? I want it to be reasonably priced, meaningful and easy for me. I know when I was still working in schools, these would have been lovely to have, instead of ANOTHER coffee mug or ANOTHER plant or ANOTHER #1 teacher ornament. It’s the thought that counts…but I want the thought to be fondly remembered. And I don’t want to break the bank, since I already blew my budget this year (I had to have the Dansko clogs. I waited two years. They were discontinued. Please don’t hate me!).
