I always have a hard time deciding what to give my girls' teachers. I want it to be something personal and related to being a teacher in some way, but I'm pretty sure they don't need another
pair of apple shaped earrings.
I went to Elle's class to do snack time on her birthday and noticed that her teacher had a coffee maker in her office. I figured it was pretty safe to assume one may need a cup of coffee or two to handle 18 five & six year olds on a regular basis. So for Christmas I picked up a reusable clear cup & filled it with a small pack of ground coffee, an instant coffee mix (LOVE Starbucks via!), a flavored syrup, & a Starbucks gift card. Gifted Express made the water proof, dishwasher safe, vinyl decal to my specifications and it was super simple to apply to the outside of the cup. This would make a great gift for any ocassion for a teacher or a co-worker or really anyone who loves coffee!
For Liv's teachers, I was really excited when I found this Montessori necklace The Jewelry Chicks make. The metal disc is handstamped with the word Montessori and accented with the pink square beads reminiscent of the pink tower, which is a classic Montessori classroom material.
