Wild About Kids Spooner Mug It’s time for the Holidays! Don’t Forget To Celebrate Your Staff, Teachers and Volunteers!

December is just around the corner, and the holidays will soon be here. This is a great time to show your teachers, staff and volunteers how much you appreciate them and value their hard work. Want to get them something special and unique? Check out these fun and unique gifts that all your teachers will love.

A Heartfelt Message
Although it seems simple, a heartfelt message, letter or poem of thanks and appreciation is always a special gift. Ask your child or class to write about a special memory when their teacher or staff member gave them extra help, went the extra mile, or included them in something important. They could list their top 5 favorite things about the educator, or just a few simple words of thanks.

A Classroom Gift
Teachers and other staff pay for so many supplies out fo their own pockets, a gift to the classroom would give them enormous holiday cheer. Consider books for their reading corner, a basket filled with office supplies, pens, pencils, glue, calendars, bulletin board kits or anything else you think their classroom could benefit from. Include a special note and it will be a favorite gift.

A Gift From The Whole Class
Handmade gifts still rank at the top of the list. Teachers adore them, as do parent volunteers and school staff. Consider a poster with a handprint and short message from each child, class-made holiday ornaments, or even a tray of treats for the holidays.

Shatterproof Ornament A Memorable Ornament
Shatterproof Ornaments are great for the Holidays and customizable! Imprint with your school mascot, logo or include a fun design and a ‘Thank You!’ message to all your teachers and staff.

Their Favorite Mug
Who doesn’t like Hot Chocolate?!? Give them this fun Spooner Mug (shown above) and include some delicious goodies like hot chocolate or tea to go with it. They’ll be enjoying their gift as well as the holidays with a delicious and warm treat.

Teacher Humor
Give them the gift of laughter with The New Yorker – Book of Teacher Cartoons. Sure to inspire giggles!
