Last minute teacher Christmas gift

I just wanted to do a quick post on my favorite teacher “thank you” gift, since I know we all love to thank our childrens’ teachers at the holidays. Instead of some trinket that might break or sweets that they might otherwise try to avoid (my son’s preschool teacher is gluten-free so I wanted to avoid anything that she couldn’t eat anyway) — how about flowers?

My favorite place to get beautiful, unique, and inexpensive flowers is Whole Foods or Central Market. In fact, I got the flowers for my wedding bouquet at Central Market!

Since my son’s teacher spends more time with him than my daughters’ once-a-week Mother’s Day Out teachers, I also added a personalized May Books lined notebook to her gift. May Books are hand-sewn without using plastic or synthetic glue with nasty chemicals. The covers are cloth-based so that they wear to a soft finish.

It’s not too late to buy some fresh flowers today!
What is your favorite teacher gift to give or receive (if you are a teacher)?

NOTE: I did not receive any compensation or product for the mention of May Books, although the owner is a personal friend of mine. I just love her products, and I pay for them just like everyone else!
