What are you giving your kids' teachers and school bus drivers (if they ride the bus) this year for Christmas? Are you doing any Christmas goody bags for the kids?

I'm not doing goody bags but I will bring in a treat for their Christmas party at the end of the week!

His teachers are getting gift sets of wine charms, cocktail napkins, and a cute little spreader knife for cheeses and stuff. I just found them on Zulily and they looked cute, just came today! yay!

I don't know what to do. As they go to daycare and Jack goes to pre-school, we have like 10 gifts to do.

Last year I bought them all picture frames, thought I might do mugs with coffee/tea packets this year, but might just make a donation to a local charity in their name.

I have 2 teachers and 2 bus drivers to do.

The only thing I bought is a $15 gift card to the movies for Veronika's teacher; she's younger and I think she might enjoy something like that.

No idea what I'm doing for anyone else. It's hard shopping for people you don't know!

Cooper interacts with many different teachers (9 I think!) so I organized a group gift from the families that wanted to participate in order to try to give the teachers a little more than they may otherwise get from individual families.

So far we've collected enough for a $25 gift card for each teacher.

Last year I did $5 gift cards for iTunes and/or Starbucks for his teachers.

I have 4 Girl Scout leaders, 2 bus drivers and 5 teachers to buy for. I'm doing hand soap and hand sanitizer from bath and body works along with a little candle for each of them.

I love my mom for thinking for me this year. I really needed that. The boys are giving their teachers, assistants and director a cute napkin holder with seasonal napkins.

I love the idea of giving the bus drivers a present. I know they are underappreciated!

I did goody bags and cards for the two classrooms. Teacher and busdrivers get a gift bag with card, goodies and an ornament

Lucky mother to five!

I did a giftcard to the movies & chocolates to teacher 1, giftcard to a department (Marshalls/Winners/Homesense) and a box of assorted teas to teacher 2. Then pine-needle scented hand soap and chocolates to bus driver 1, and a giftcard to Canadian Tire and a box of Irish Cream chocolates to driver 2.

I ordered Christmas ornaments that say "World's Greatest Teacher" and their name and year. I gave one to each teacher. We gave his computer teacher (he has her for a half hour once a week) a jar candle. They are the only people he interacts with often. Next year will be a different story.
Thank you Claire1979!
