Here it is, Christmas time. We have been getting Secret Santa forms, Santa Workshop forms and Christmas Program invites.
It's busy when you have a kid in school around this time.
Having been out of the teacher gift giving loop for a few years I seriously was stumped on a gift idea.
Chris' school offers the opportunity to give a monetary gift that is totaled and then split between all of the teachers at the school.
Personally, I think that this is a brilliant idea.
Chris wanted to give his teacher a gift though.
Okay, fine...so, I asked him what he thought would be something his teacher would appreciate.
"You know those Dunkin Donuts cups you make up with gift cards? My teacher likes Dunkin Donuts, I think that is a cool idea."
Hey! So do I!
Remember to get a lid and tall straw, too. I attach a gift tag to the straw (Chris will write a message on there), then I fill the cup with brown crinkle shredded paper (coffee) and assemble the cup. No need to put in a bag or wrap in wrapping paper. A gift to go!
Total cost is the expense of the gift card (we are giving $10), plus cost of cup ($.25), and fill ($1.00 at Dollar Tree will give you enough fill for 6 cups).
