For those of you who know your teachers are coffee lovers, Starbucks or their favorite coffee shop gift card will always be appreciated. Not that teachers ever have favorites, but I can tell you I remember those families that brought me coffee!!!
Reusable Drink Cup: A simple idea is to fill a reusable drink cup with crinkle paper and place a gift card in the top. For an even more economical idea, use a paper Coffee cup as the “gift box”. I love having the reusable water/iced drink mugs around, especially when I was teaching. You can get a generic version at Bed, Bath and Beyond (don’t forget to use the 20% off coupon that typically comes in the mail – they never expire).
Along with that you could have your student make a coaster to set the drink on. Also you can have them make a card saying, “Hope this year is “latte” fun!”.
