I read about a dad/accountant that did his teaching daughters taxes and was upset at how much they spent out of pocket for schoolsupplies - $1250 each.

Send me a cute birdhouse; I keep getting candles but I have young children and and have already had one counter top burning diaster. Count on a 4 yr old to use the candle to ignite the chips bag; the oil burned hot enough to pop chips out of the counter top laminate . That'll cost $1250 to replace. When he's much older.

For a teacher with 30+kids and only so many shelves, a lovely gift certificate to the Wal-mart or Target or grocery store. Or the craft store. And a great big hug and a smile.
