It's that time of year again when school comes to a close, and I'm wracking my brain to come up with thoughtful teacher gifts. My daughter is in preschool at a Montessori school and has several different teachers who are influential on her. I'd like to find a nice way to express our gratitude for all they have done. She's about to turn four and is already reading and writing! I'm very proud of all the progress she has made this year and I've been looking for something special for each of them. Sure, I could go the gift card route (who couldn't use a Target gift card), but I wanted something a little more personal.
These Citrus Bird notecards from The Posh Peacock would be a lovely and welcome gift. With their pretty, vibrant colors, any teacher would be happy to have these.
Or how about treating your teachers to some chocolate truffles from Cowgirl Chocolates? They'd sure love these, and with the delightful mixture of mild-mannered truffles, spicy truffles and habenero caramels, there's something for everyone!
So I think what I'm going to do is print out a cute picture of my daughter, have her write a special note to them and attach to one of these goodies. I think I'll also bake some decadent *Brownies with dried cherries for them to take home. We'll wish them all well for the summer and look forward to seeing them again in the fall.
