Teacher gifts

I have given gifts to my children's teacher's and daycare providers, but with two children x teacher's, aides and daycare providers it all adds up.
Last year I purchased pecans from a friend's farm, put them in brown handled bags and a card that said, WE"RE NUTS ABOUT YOU! Everyone loved those.
The two other gifts I got lots of response from was a Manicure gift certificates at a salon near the school. The most appreciated one was a thank you note I wrote for all the work that they do.( this one cost nothing and has meant the most. I still see one particular teacher at school and more than once she had mentioned this)

This year our PTA sponsored a teacher's wish tree. Each teacher placed an ornament on the tree with a wish for their classroom (rubber stamps, books, pencils, Canned air for the computers, etc.) Children could pick one from the tree if they wished (strictly voluntary)and then present the gift to the teacher.
Happiness is not getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got.
