The first kind of present includes things a teacher might want. Of course this varies, but I’ve never known a teacher to turn down something they can use to pamper themselves a little. A nice restaurant gift card, a pedicure certificate, or a fancy lotion are always appreciated.
But, on the other side, teachers love receiving things they need. And oh do they needs things for the first few weeks of school. 🙂 There’s no question that it’s the most difficult time of the year in teacher world. Educators are often running in survival mode for a good chunk of August and September. So, why not make them a little Survival Kit as a beginning-of-the-year present?
- …a container for an easy, quick lunch (this particular container is for a salad…it includes a fork and a dressing holder).
- …granola/protein bars for those times the teacher won’t have time for a lunch break (which happens all too often).
- …lip balm, for when they’ve been talking for hours.
- …oil blotting sheets/face wipes.
- …a coffee shop gift card. No explanation needed. 🙂
- …a pretty coffee cup to hold that precious coffee.
- …lotion for hands that get so dry from using hand sanitizer 50 times a day.
- …tissues for quick makeup clean-ups.
- …nice grading pens (these are worth their weight in gold in the teacher world).
- …Vitamin C. Because the beginning of school epidemic is real.
- …and on that note, Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes. Because kid germs are absolutely everywhere, and in turn, classroom surfaces need to be wiped down basically every day.
