What do you get a teacher for an end-of-year gift?
How much do you spend? I’m not cheap, but I’ve got three of these bad boys (wonderful ladies) to buy for.
I’ve heard that gifts with apples on them are cheesy, but can the same be said about gift cards to the liquor store?
DO CATHOLIC TEACHERS DRINK? Probably some of them.
What’s a better idea?
What about a potted flower with a card that says “Thank you for helping me grow”? Too saccharine? If no, COULD YOU RUN TO THE STORE FOR ME AND BUY ALL OF THOSE THINGS?
Teacher’s gifts are sort of unspokenly mandatory, right? I mean, not that I don’t WANT to get them, but will my child be the only one giving them anything? Or does everyone still do that?
Seriously, teachers drink, right? Probably A LOT. I drink and I only have two kids max to take care of at any one time.
Couldn’t I just stick some money in a card like I do for people’s birthdays?
If I spend too much, will my kid be shunned for being a kiss-ass? If I spend too little, will the teachers fail her for having a cheap mom?
What will be said behind my daughter’s back if the gifts I send her with are terrible?
This is yet another thing they don’t tell you you’re going to have to figure out when you have kids.
UPDATE: I went with Tim Horton’s gift cards in $15 denominations. Everyone loves coffee. Or tea. Or hot chocolate. Or donuts. You HAVE to love donuts. And if not, they can re-gift. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving.
