Get advice on appropriate holiday gifts or tips to give your kid’s childcare provider and teach to show appreciation. Holiday Gifts to Give Your Child’s Teacher By. Robin McClure. Robin McClure is a public school administrator and author of 6 parenting books. First of all, you’ll never be faulted for choosing a gift card for your teacher — it’s what every teacher really wants.

Or, even better than a gift. At my son’s school, we collect money – whatever families want to contribute – and give teachers American Express gift cards. I know some teachers really appreciate the flexibility of a gift card –. “If your child has the teacher for just one period of the day, $10 to $20 is appropriate.” Melissa Verity Baral teaches kindergarten in Los Angeles and tells SheKnows most parents give $25 to $50. Holiday gifts teachers really want Teachers tell us what they want. Gift cards are a beautiful thing; restaurants, stores, movies, grocery cards are all Homemade gifts and cards.

My answer is the same every year. I ask for a homemade Christmas ornament with the child’s A gift for the whole. 11) Get the teacher his/her favorite beverage (that won’t get your kid sent to the principal’s office) or favorite candy If your child is old enough, have them do a little re-con work: get them to find out his/her teacher’s favorites (good chance they’ll already know ). Because we know teachers need their caffeine fix, gifts for coffee-lovers (like an extra-large travel mug!) will keep them fully fueled for long days of teaching.

Do they have a classroom library? Leave your legacy with classic children’s books that. Etiquette regarding holiday gift-giving for teachers is far from universally agreed upon.

After the state of Alabama initially banned students from giving gifts to teachers in 2011, the state passed an amendment allowing for gifts up to a maximum of $25. Here are some ideas for special occasions: Thanksgiving – Although this isn’t a typical gift-giving occasion, you can show your gratitude and appreciation to the Christmas, Hanukkah, or other religious holiday – Before offering a religious-themed gift, make. 1. Gift cards: Over and over again, teachers said you can’t go wrong with a gift card, either to a store the educator can enjoy for personal.

If you find your child has developed a crush on his teacher—which often happens—you may want to help him express his warm feelings by allowing him to choose a small gift for her at holiday time, or help him write a note of thanks at the end of the year.

  • I love the idea of putting the Starbucks gift card in a reusable cup! Very cute presentation and USEFUL as well! Definitely going to be using that one:)

  • You should check out your local Dollar Tree for gift bags. This year they brought in such a beautiful assortment, they have all sizes and so much beautiful decoration items!!! I made baskets for my kids teacher from things I bought at the Dollar Store and they turned out amazing!!! May you and your little girls have a blessed Christmas!!!

  • Oh my goodness I love the intro + how you filmed this video! I can’t wait until my kids start school so I can do gifts for their teachers. �� Those cookie mixes are such a cute idea. Omg haha I would have made a huge mess too. ��

  • I love making jar gifts for Christmas �� yours look great. But my fav is the before and after work. 8 think I’m going to give that to my co worker

  • TFS!! These are a ome great ideas! My youngest is graduating from high school this year, but I have some grandchildren who could do these! I even have some ideas for my youngest to make for her favorite teachers!!

  • This is probably the most in-depth gift idea video I’ve ever seen on YouTube! Great ideas, I loved all the tags and the various ways to use them!:)

  • I totally forgot last year that we were supposed to do teacher gifts! Lol it was my first year as a parent but this year I am going to make sure and we give them gifts!

  • I taught school for a couple years! I remember getting SO much chocolate and really appreciating gifts like mugs or picture frames instead of goodies!

  • I wished I watched this before getting something for my son’s teacher, we ended up getting a little desk organiser for her table, its so cute, I hope she likes it, I ended up getting one for myself and just let me son picked out a couple of things he picked out a cup and hot chocolate set and a planner for her <3

  • Love the presentation of these great ideas! It’s all about making the recipient feel special, and you nailed it! The cookie mix is so handy for this time of year, too, with parties and kids home from school over the winter break. I need to step up my game! Thanks CM!

  • My most memorable gifts during my 15 years as a teacher were: a whole class gift the year I got married…they got us 20 gifts cards to various restaurants, movie theaters, ice cream shops…so we could go on dates every weekend as newly weds. But my favorite gift came from a family that I had taught all three of their kids…she was a former caterer…she and the kids asked me to come to school early one morning for breakfast with them…they set up my “reading group” table with fine china, linens, fresh flowers and then served me homemade breakfast and coffee. Then the mom prepared a list of questions for the kids to answer while I ate…like favorite book I read to them, or favorite song…anyway I still tear up thinking about the time they took fir that gift…it was so precious!

  • I wish I had seen this last Sunday when I was spinning my wheels trying to find teacher gifts for my daughter! LOL. Fantastic ideas!

  • I am still close with many of my teachers from high school. With that being said, I’ll always cherish my sixth grade teacher. My mom died when I was 11 and after having my intradistrict transfer revoked for poor attendance, I was placed in her classroom. It was a God send. I was dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts. I barely took care of myself and most of the time was late to school because I was too depressed to get out of bed. I would have breakdowns in the middle of the day (very “adult” problems for a young kid.) Still, she loved and believed in me, even calling my house and making me get up when I felt like I couldn’t, giving me a safe space to cry and a shoulder to cry on. She saved my life that year, I will forever be grateful.

  • As a teacher, thank you for putting it out there that we’d really love a heartfelt note…from the kids or the parents! And the other ideas you shared were wonderful as well!

  • Another idea I thought of for the drink thing is you could include a Sonic Gift card?  I’m not sure if they have sonics where you live or not.

  • I just finished my freshman year of college and I am minoring in early childhood education. I have wanted to be a teacher my whole life and I am finally taking the steps to becoming one! Your videos are so inspiring and encourage and have made me so excited to continue my education. Thank you for being so positive and such a wonderful teacher. Keep spreading sunshine!

  • Im so sorry, but all I can think of is how Crayola crayons cost 5 dollars a box where I live (South America)…nonetheless…you’re projects are marvellous

  • Hi Kathryn! I am really enjoying your on a dime videos. Just wanted to let you know that I found your channel through Cassandra’s Clutterbug youtube channel. Between the two of you I’ve been reorganizing my home on a budget. Thanks so much!

  • Mrs. Cunningham will always hold a piece for my heart. As someone who struggled for years with dyslexia back in the days it wasn’t common knowledge and being called dumb by teachers she was my light at the end of a very dark tunnel. She owned a school for kids just like me and to this day talking to old school mates those years at that school make us the happiest. It was just a loving and learning environment.

  • Great ideas! We always handmade our gifts for my kids teachers. It was usually a goody of sorts, fireside coffee, Russian tea, always the favorite, my Peanutbutter fudge or White chocolate munchie mix. They all knew me very well beings I worked in the schools along side them. I also did something for everyone at my school. My custodians were treated very well because they were the ones that took care of me. Turned the heat on in the office so it was warm and toasty for my arrival and had coffee made and waiting for me. Some years I would cater a lunch of my famous Chinese Chicken Salad for the schoolwide staff. It’s being appreciated and recognized, to know they matter ����
    God bless you and your family Kathryn ❤ XOXO

  • Oh Kathryn those are so unique. Would love to work with my granddaughter who is finishing kindergarten this year. Thanks for sharing! <3

  • I usually give my children’s teacher something the children made and chip in with a gift card with a good amount. These teachers most of the time give from the little they have. So a gift card and some thing a little extra does it for me. Great idea btw!

  • As a teacher myself, (kindergarden and primary education) the best gifts my students can give me are their drawings, hugs, their smiles whenever they see me. Anyway, I liked video. Have a great day.

  • Thanks for the tips. I use “The Works” to get the rust build up off my shower stall. I spray after my shower (it stinks) and leave it for awhile and come back and rinse. I’ve found if I do this regularly then the rust or soap scum doesn’t build up in the tub or surround and I don’t have to scrub at all. And… it’s a dollar! Thanks so much for all your videos and your channel. You are amazing!
