    End-of-Year Teacher Gifts

    Does anyone have any clever ideas for thank-you teacher gifts. I have three teachers to buy for and want to get them something other than a candle or lotion. I'm crafty, but don't have a lot of time to make anything before school ends. Any ideas? Thanks

    This is not crafty but as a former teacher I have to tell you ----->
    gift certificate. Book store, coffee shop, gourmet food shop or restaurant. That's always what was most useful.

    Listen for hints! My children (students) know I love dark chocolate, red wine and bath products! ;-)

    I second the gift certificate. Gift certificates help us to offset the out-of-pocket expense of being a teacher. :)

    My mother-in-law is a librarian and she adores just about anything the kids give her, but seems to particularly like edible and usable things, because even if she doesn't care for it herself she can put it out for guests.
    Melt and pour soaps are quick and crafty.

    I give Border's Gift Cards. Always fits and it's their option whether to use for classroom or personal.

    I had 3 teachers to get a gift for.
    My new card biz is on a roll so I gave them a box set of assorted cards.

    I know that I don't particularly like to fork out money for cards...
