Teacher Gift Ideas . . . Works For Me Wednesday

Around here, school is still in session for one more week. What has always worked for us? Well, cookies for teachers, of course.

Besides your child's homeroom teacher, let's not forget....
  • coach
  • music
  • Sunday school
  • scout leaders
  • private lessons
  • tutors
  • the list goes on and on...
And every teacher doesn't have to get a dozen...or even 6! I think a decorated cookie tied with a pretty ribbon and thank you note is perfectly sweet.

Here are some ideas (click the links for more details):

Number 2 pencil cookies

Kid-decorated cookies. {Kiddo made these for his 1st grade teacher....they are still some of my favorites.}

For a very POPular Teacher cookies....you may remember these from earlier this month. The link to that adorable bag topper is in the post.

Thanks for BEEing a great teacher!

What teacher wouldn't love a bouquet of roses?

Cocktails, anyone? Wait...maybe that's not so appropriate. Teachers can give these to EACH OTHER!

  18. OH how I wish I had been KIDDO's teacher!
    I would have LOVED having some of BRIDGET's cookies given to me as a teacher gift!
    And you would have loved and adored me so much you would have given me at least several dozen...like on allllllll the holidays....even President's Day!
    And I would have loved and adored YOU and your handsome KIDDO!
    Oh...and I'm just certain you would have been right there with me the day the class spent making GINGERBREAD houses!
    You can't imagine how much royal icing I whipped up in that classroom!
    The whole room was one big puff of powdered sugar! The kids were amazed!
    And at the end of the year...you better believe I'd be wanting those COCKTAIL cookies!
    NO PENCILS for this chick!
    Bring on the COCKTAILS!
    Wouldn't we have had fun if I had been Kiddos teacher!

    I bet they SMILE so BIG when he delivers his cookies!
    ANd I just bet HE is BEAMING with pride!
