Spring(ish) Break Day 5

Last day!

Today I leave you with one last idea from Martha. It might just be my favorite idea yet! In fact, it wasn't originally a Teacher Appreciation idea at all. Martha thought these would make great Bridesmaid Goodie Boxes. But, I think they'd be perfect for your favorite teacher! We have these little differences of opinion every now and again! Pfffffft.

How. Cute. Is. This??

Seriously, I can't stand it!

You could fill it with your teacher's favorite fresh snacks and goodies or even a takeout lunch.

If I were doing this gift, I would probably get them takeout from a local specialty shop (Sparkle City peeps - I'm thinking Ice Creams and Coffee Beans or Gigi's Cafe). Then I'd re-wrap it in a cute container with a sweet tag and ribbon. {You know me, right? You should've seen that one coming.}

Or don't re-wrap it. It doesn't really matter. It's the thought lunch that counts!

Whatever you do, make sure you get something your teacher likes. You could give them a takeout menu and let them choose what they'd like to order. And, make sure you know what time of day is best to bring it, if you choose to bring them lunch. There's nothing worse than having a nice hot/fresh meal sitting there getting cold and stale while you wait an hour and a half for your planning period. Nothing.

I have a little something for you today. It's just a quirky little form I like to use to find out all of our teachers' favorite things. I use this every year so that I can make choices for things that they really like and I don't have to guess. I mean why buy your teacher an iTunes gift card if they'd rather have new books or movie tickets, right? Get them what they want!

To get a copy of the My Favorites form, just click here.

You can change it, re-write it, make it your own.

I hope you've enjoyed this little series of Teacher Appreciation Week ideas and I hope you've been inspired to do something nice for your teacher!

I may have a few more ideas between now and TA Week, but as of now, I'm moving on!

Happy Spring, people!
