This is the first year that we will be buying teacher gifts and I am so excited with how ours turned out! I wasn’t trying to spend a fortune but I wanted to give functional and realistic gifts that not everyone would be giving. I decided on a basket filled with goodies. Kellan has his teacher and a teachers assistant. So we doubled up on our gifts. After purchasing our mugs for our teachers it was brought to my attention that mugs are a no-no gift because all parents every year want to give a mug gift. If you decide you want to there is nothing wrong with that but try and add a little something else.
