Today I’m sharing how to make a winter themed Thank You Gift for teachers who do extra for their students.
Teaching can be a very rewarding job. Seeing a child develop and grow as a result of your dedication and instruction is priceless. Sometimes parents recognize your hard work – and they say, “Thank you” or randomly bring you a coffee when you just happen to be having a bad day.
Give Extra, Get Extra, because the little things always count the most. Other times, they don’t even notice when you give extra time to their child, and that can be disheartening. Since I sent my sweet Annabelle to baby school, I vowed I would always make sure her teachers knew how much my husband and I appreciate what they do for my daughter. I tell them every day that I am so thankful they’re wonderful to our little girl.
With the holidays quickly approaching, I thought it would be fun to surprise my daughter’s favorite teachers with a little gift before Thanksgiving break. We will give all of the teachers in her class presents for Christmas, but this month I want to say THANKS before Thanksgiving for all of the extra-ordinary work they do.
She has two favorite teachers who really go over the top to make sure she has a good day at baby school. Since she only goes Tues-Thurs, she always has a bit of a hard time adjusting at the beginning of the week. The lead teacher in her class, and one of the managers at her baby school, go above and beyond (in my eyes) to make sure that she feels safe, stays happy, and gets the love and attention an 11 month old needs. Not only have I witnessed the amazing care she is given, but also friends whose babies go to the same school as Annabelle.
Seeing that the weather is finally getting a bit chilly, I thought it would be nice to put together a fun winter themed thank you gift. Annabelle and I picked out some great goodies for her favorite teachers: a winter-y mug, some hot chocolate, and a melt-away chocolate marshmallow stirrer. Since most teachers barely have time to drink water, let alone make a cup of hot cocoa, we included some yummy Cinnamon Roll and Pumpkin Spice Extra Gum #ExtraGumMoments #CollectiveBias. Obviously gum is banned in school for children, but thankfully not for teachers! I made a little note on the tag that the thank you gift was for all of their “extra-ordinary” work with Annabelle. Anyone who shows my daughter love and attention deserves extra love and attention themselves!
I can’t wait to surprise Annabelle’s teachers with these gifts on her last day of school before Thanksgiving break. I hope the teachers take these goodies as a token of appreciation! I love giving coffee mugs as gifts because I know they’re something that will always remind the recipient of me (or in the case, Annabelle!).
