I'm thinking teacher masks, hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes will be the hottest teacher gifts this year ;)  What are you planning on giving your children's' teachers this year?

I don’t have kids but along the same lines I do get a few of my coworkers a little something and this year I’m going to do Bath & Body Works holiday foaming soap and a PocketBac. I may get them a PocketBac holder and a small tube of hand lotion too depending on how many I decide to do. My hands are a wreck from the constant washing and sanitizing every time I change gloves at work. I love the sanitizing wipes idea too! I’m starting to see more in the stores these days but still have a limit of 1 per person.

Ours will probably give hers a custom made tumbler, custom made ornament, gift card and candy. We make etch the tumblers and ornaments ourselves so it's a little more personal.

We do restaurant (or liquor store, depending on how well I know the teacher lol) gift cards.  This year I will add a little mini-hand sanitizer with a snap holder that they can use. My oldest has a male teacher for the first time, so I will probably just do 2 gift cards for him, one for the liquor store and one for a restaurant. I know my kid drives him to drink!  LOL

 

Some years we get a pdf of teacher preferences, which is really helpful at knowing what to get and what not to get. If that comes out again this year I will get gc based on it.

A gift card most likely. It is so hard with our current situation to give anything. At least this way she can order whatever she would like.

My son is still full time remote, so I might just do a gift card that I can put in the mail. Gift cards are my least favorite presents to give, but I think that's the only way to do it this year. 

 

Funny story, my son has two teachers. I worked with one of them at Dunkin Donuts when I was in high school and my husband worked with the other at Pottery Barn right after college. I might send them gift cards from there and sign the card, "Your former coworkers..."

Well we homeschool, so no gift for the teacher..lol.  But, we generally give her piano teacher, violin teacher, and the youth orchestra conductor a gift.  Sadly, this year all of that was cancelled with the exception of piano.  Last year we gave her piano teacher a piano Christmas tree ornament and her violin teacher a violin Christmas tree ornament.  We gave the conductor a gift card to Krispy Kreme (so he could treat his young children) and a gift card to Starbucks (we've known him for 4 years and he always had Starbucks in his hand).  The previous years I believe we just did gift cards to local places.  Year before last, for the conductor, my husband did a drawing of a violin (that is the instrument he plays) but he left room all around it for all of the youth orchestra to sign it.  We had bought a glass frame for it, so once everyone had signed, we put it in a glass frame.  

When my boys were in public school, we usually gave the teachers gift cards.

Thats what I ended up doing for the 3 coworker friends I buy for.......holiday hand soap, holiday hand sanitizer and holder, small hand lotion and then I’ll get them each a small gift card to Starbucks or Andy’s frozen custard for a treat.
