Welcome to Week 5 of the Holiday Gift Guide!! Last week was a bust. Children's gifts must be no-brainers...but, I hope that y'all will share your best "Teacher Gifts" ideas with all of us!
I dunno about you, but aside from Man Gifts, "Teacher Gifts" are about the hardest thing for me to find.
In fact, for many years, I just pretended that "Teacher Gifts" didn't exist! I mean, gosh...teachers have families and get gifts from them for Christmas, so certainly they didn't need another bruised apple to make their Christmas merry and bright, right?
So, I just plugged along, blissful in my own little mind that I didn't need to add Mrs. So-and-So to my shopping list.
Then, I got wise. Or compassionate. Or nice. Or something...and I realized that yes, indeed, our childrens' teachers DO deserve a little something for Christmas! However, I then went back into "la-la land" and just forgot about it until the day before Christmas break when I would frantically scrounge together a cute candle holder left over from last year and fill it with Christmas goodies I had laying around.
To the extreme.
So...this year...I'm hoping y'all can share your most brilliant ideas with me! I plan on stockpiling them in my brain to use for years to come!
Now, though, I will share with you, what I found this year for my childrens' teachers!
*Spoiler Alert: If you are a teacher of one of my kiddos, or one of their God Mother's...do not read any farther lest you be wantin' to find out what you're getting for Christmas! End Spoiler Alert.*
The other day, at Sam's Club (after I nearly killed myself trying to navigate the new roundabouts that have suddenly been shoved into my life...stupid roundabouts) I was cruising through and happened to see a pack of 6 adorable Holiday Note Pads.
***Photos to come. I didn't have time to snap the pics and upload them when I wrote this!!
Festive, fun...fabulous! I was in a hurry, and didn't have the usual 54 minutes that I need to sit there and contemplate my decision. So, home I went. (Actually, I think I went to work, but who's keeping track, right?)
Only to regret I didn't buy them! I had oodles of ideas for people to give them to...I mean, who couldn't use a cute note pad?!!
At the top of my list were my childrens' teachers...I had planned on making the note pads the Jill had mentioned here (I even figured out how to do them with my Mac! If you wanna know, just ask me...I'll tell you! I'm nice like that...), but when I saw these, I just couldn't pass them up!
The whole pack was just under nine bucks...so, some quick math in this simple mind of mine tells me that those note pads come in under two bucks per pad! Not bad, 'eh?
And, all to be found at your friendly, local Sam's Club!
Okay...let's hear it! What are your "Teacher Gift" ideas?!
