Last year I took the 5x7 plastic photo frames and turned them around to make the leg part at the top for a "stand". I used the school colors and mascot and attached a post it note, ribbon, and the teachers name..... my daughters teachers LOVED them....... I hope you know what I'm referring to.

Default teachers gifts

I am making the altered clip boards for their pe teachers, monogramed cards for the regular teachers, and smores in a can for the aides, bus drivers etc. Maybe even some nugget boxes for the lunch ladies.
I was an aide for 4 years, and there are some people who are forgotten and yet they do 90% of the work, so I like to remember as many as I can

As a teacher, a good pen is always a big hit. Altered note books are good. I have made the big paper clips for my coworkers. As a high school teacher, anything is appreciated. I did 2 chocolate chip cookies, in a coffee bag with the recipe 2 years ago. this recipe is the best.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
cup margarine 2/3 cup shortening
1 cup sugar 1 cup Brown sugar
2 eggs 2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups flour 1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt 12 oz pkg chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped, optional
Cream together the margarine, shortening,and sugars.
Add vanilla and eggs.
In another bowl mix the flour, salt and soda.
Add the flour mixture one cup at a time to the creamed mixture. (When it it is too hard for the mixer to handle, use a spoon) Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Drop by teaspoon 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes or until just barely brown.

Default "teacher memorabilia galore"

A teacher does not need one thing that says "teacher" on it. No ornaments, picture frames, mugs, nothing. And homemade cookies and candies are always a concern due to sanitary conditions of the kitchen and cooks hands.

The absolute best gift is a gift certificate. A $5 gift certificate is better than yet another "teacher" object or inexpensive thing. Teachers at my school would pool their unwanted perfumes, lotions, key chains, etc. and give them to nursing homes for Bingo prizes. We very much appreciated the gesture and acknowledged the gift but why waste your money. Maybe the room mother could send out a note telling people to donate whatever they would have spent on a gift to one person who could then purchase a really nice gift certificate to a mall or restaurant, and all of the kids could sign the card.
I could write a book about the gifts teachers received over my 31 years of teaching in a very nice suburban district.

giftcards/certificates, something consumable (like *bucks, or restaurant),
I received car wash certificates last year, they came in handy!
I have also received spa certificates, and certificates for mani/pedis.
hope that helps!

Here are a few ideas I've used in the past:
1.) Small basket w/several kinds of soups (they make quick lunches). Add a tag (I computer-generated the sentiment), stamp, layer and attach to ribbon. Tell them you appreciate the 'souper' job they do.
2.) Bag of potpourri with stamped tag thanking them for being a 'scentsational' teacher.
3.) Use a disposable diaper and form a pouch. Line with tissue paper and add fun items that they might use to 'pamper themselves'. Gourmet chocolate, bath salts, lotion, candle, etc. Add tag/ribbon that says 'Take some time to pamper yourself'.
Guess you can tell I like puns.

My SIL had me help her make up baskets of asst. hand-made greeting cards for all the teachers/aides, etc.

They were a HUGE hit and already they are giving her 'reminder hints' that they loved them so much last year...................
(we'll likely do some sort of repeat this year).

Oh yes..............I think she tossed in stamps for some, too................

Love the soup and pamper ideas! What size diaper did you use for the "Pamper Yourself" gift?

As a teacher I will tell you the greatest gift I have ever gotten is a handmade card...made by the student so certainly not perfect...with a heartfelt note inside. Also tucked in was a gift card to the grocery store. It is always the thought that counts so much more than the gift.

I am a teacher and I would love any home made cards sets that I could use to send notes to children at home. Thank you cards as well and blank cards would be awesome and well used.

I used a cheap brand of diaper....I think it was a smaller size (my baby is 20 years old and I can't remember the steps...it was the next size after newborn though any would work).

I always make a nice card and include a $25.00 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble or Borders book store. I figure this way the teacher can either buy something for themselves like a book, cd, or dvd or they can buy books for their classroom, which I know that some of the teachers really like to do. I usually get the gift cards through the script program that our school has so that I am not only giving a gift but I am also helping the school with the percentage that they get from the sale of the card. I also try to make a little nugget holder or something to dress up the whole package!

With all of the budget cuts in the schools, I think classroom items that the teacher can use would be appreciated. Teachers would post "wish list" items and the kids could give them as gifts, usually as Christmas gifts. Things like books, puzzles and games for indoor recess, building blocks for the younger grades, etc. This seemed to work out well.

Our PTA sent a note every yr asking parents to send whatever they would spend on a gift to the office. It was then equally divided among all staff, the janitor, music teacher, librarian, etc. so that the more invisible helpers were included too. It was a sizeable check to each teacher ($150 for part time staff, $300 for full time). Home made gifts were always welcome to individual teachers and there was no pressure.
I made Christmas gift tags. The teachers often asked for more having no idea how much time they took to make!

I've made a couple unique gifts in the past for teachers. Although I'm not sure what I'll do this year. I'm working full time now...so not nearly as much time to craft (dang it!) LOL.

One of my son's teachers kept a tool belt (from Home Depot the cloth ones) around her waist all the time. She put her markers/etc in the pocket. So when I saw a blank one for sale I had to buy it and make it for her. She still uses it...2 years later...every day.

This next one is a "Movie Paint Can". It contained a gift card, movie size boxes of candy, popcorn, etc.

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...306&perpage=96

And here are some "back to school" baskets I did for the teachers last year (things like note cards, white board, etc).

As a teacher, I have most appreciated handmade, heartfelt cards from the students. Those are the things that I keep and look at. When I still taught primary, a few students over the years had given me handmade Christmas ornaments (really simple ones like candy canes made with beads on pipecleaners.) I still love to look at them each holiday season. I have also appreciated books for our classroom library.

As a former teacher, I was given a canvas bag with all my students hand prints on the bag. I used that for a few years until I stopped teaching. It was a great way to carry all my supplies to and from school.

I like Starbucks... strike that. I'm utterly and totally addicted to starbucks (as MOST teachers are, hence the new free coffee for teachers on monday program), so some kind of coffee-themed altered item/card and a gift certificate would be right up my alley. It's what i plan on making for a couple co-workers and my son's teacher.

Default Male teacher?

I make my holiday gifts for the kids teachers every year. This year my daughter had a male teacher for 4th grade. Everything I want to make is too girly for him. Any suggestions? I will welcome all!
Kindly,

I am also a teacher and agree you that this would be the perfect gift. Or how about stamping stickers for us to use on the top of all of their amazing papers? Just a thought!

I have to say as a newer teacher, one of my favorite gifts had my name engraved on a post it holder. And I love the Barnes and Noble gift cards! I've gotten gas cards in the past, and those are really nice too! I have saved every card I have gotten.

Last year for my daughter's 2nd grade class I took pictures of all the kids and one group photo (did this during lunch time). I made an 8 x 8 scrapbook with pictures from the class. Each kid had their own page with their individual picture. I was given 15 minutes of class time to be with the kids. The day before I went in during lunch and told them to think about their teacher and what the best part of the year was. When I went in the next day I layed out scraps, stickers, embellishments on the back table and let the kids journal and decorate their individual page. I had extra moms there to help also. It turned out really nice. The whole class felt like they gave a gift.

I agree with the above posts. I have received many gifts of mugs and misc. things I can't use. If you want to help out with classroom needs donate a class gift like books etc... If you want it to be for the teacher have it be something personal for them. I can't eat most of the candy and goodies I do get each year. (although I would love to) One year I did get a statue of the virgin Mary and I am not Catholic I know they are all very sweet to think of me though and I always show them that I appreciate it. I say Gift cards given in a creatively packaged way is wonderful!

I found a giant pack of teacher stickers recently on clearance for $2.59 at Meijer. I grabbed it since my DD's teacher puts stickers on her papers many days. Now, to come up with a creative way to package it, since it's 8x10 or so...... what I was thinking of doing was making the accordian-style packet (where you glue envies back to back) and then adding in tabs with notepads and maybe a $5 coffee gift card. Any other ideas?

My mom is a teacher and she always prefers to get Gift certificates...Teachers get so much of that typical teachery stuff every year, so getting a present they can use is always the best...plus you can jazz them up with a custom made gift card holder or put it in a basket with a few other goodies included.

I made altered clipboards for teachers last year. Is that a good idea or too "teachery"?

I'm a retired teacher (after 30 years). The gifts that come to mind that I still treasure are the hand made cards and personal notes that I received from students. The "trinkets", although they were appreciated, are long gone. The personal cards, notes, and letters from students - priceless - and stored in my treasure box.

The day before I went in during lunch and told them to think about their teacher and what the best part of the year was. When I went in the next day I layed out scraps, stickers, embellishments on the back table and let the kids journal and decorate their individual page. I had extra moms there to help also. It turned out really nice. The whole class felt like they gave a gift.
Beatuiful idea! As a teacher I would love this gift and treasure it for a lifetime. She was very blessed to have received it from you.

Blessings,

Anne
