Teacher Gift Ideas

This Christmas many of our children are going to want to give

and the teacher.

as soaps, lotions, after-shave, bubble bath, and other items for the bath and

suggestions would be special computer papers, stationary, note cards, pens, and

resources of the classroom, such as books, magazines, maps, or even small
plants. These can also be given on a personal level.
*Seasonally appropriate items like tree ornaments and candles
are always favorites. Most women love handcrafted items.
