Default help with man preschool teacher

my son is in preschool and has 5 women and 1 man teachers/aides. I want to do something really simple for them and thought i'd make beaded chapsticks for the ladies but what would be comperable for a man? He's a younger guy too. Thinking a chapstick with manly paper but no beads? would that seem ok?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Instead of chap stick you could make a hot chocolate packet holder...... this is what I did with my daughter's male teacher!

Or microwave popcorn... hot choc always seems more of a winter thing to me (but man do I scarf it down then! lol).

My sons are 25 & 27, athletic types & always have Chapstick with them. Must be to keep their lips kissable? They complain they are so little they always are losing them. So this may be a perfect gift for the male teacher. Then all your gifts alike & he can always pass it on to a girlfriend or his mother.

Thanks for the insight...that is probably his age range.

I found out that he's pretty athletic and the teachers think he does golf so i ended up making a little cello bag with a golf ball and few tees and just made topper that said "enjoy your summer." on the back of all of them i printed a little thank you note.

Thanks for all the suggestions!!!

Cool deal! I like how the gifts are all still similar enough so he doesn't feel singled out for being male.

My husband is never without his chapstick! He even uses a keyring holder for it.

I'm sure he would appreciate anything you gave him.
