suggestions wanted!

I am in need of some teacher gifts. I am usually good about coming up with something, but Brinley's teacher is MALE! What do you get a male teacher? Also, I need to get a thank you gift for her bus driver too.
Any suggestions?
links to any blogs would be great too...like this one.
Thanks ya'll!

Hmmm that's a good one! We have only had female teachers so far, but come next year I have a feeling that will change when my oldest is in Middle School.

Okay I know this will be of no help what so ever, but the first thing that popped into my head was a movie basket.

Throw in some micro popcorn, some candy, some soda and a gift certificate to your local blockbuster. Then add a note telling him to take a night off and relax at the movies...

See I told you I'm of no help. I'm just ever so cheesy! :)

Man I had better get going on my kids teachers gifts.... School gets out tomorrow! YiKES!

My Dad teaches at Greenacres. He gets tons of gifts every year. Usually chocolate or candy. He's gotten those M&M characters; he loved that!

Usually it's food of some kind. Cookies, cakes, candy, chocolate.
I think he has gotten gift cards every now and then, but those students LOVE him!

Hope that helps!

I love the movie basket idea or movie tickets! That's a great gift for any teacher!!!

Halle's teacher is female, so we got her some lotion and soap from Bath & Body works. But we had considered getting her a gift card to Barnes & Noble. That would work well for a man, I would think.

all-time-favorite-never-go-wrong-gift: a set of regal movie tickets from costco, $15 a pair... we've gotten them every year for every teacher and they are always a hit.

a potted plant for the helpers & principal last year and for the bus driver we got a bag a oreos, also a hit... ;)

This is the MOST HILARIOUS site ever, but since they are both teachers, she has some great ideas. I am also a teacher and my favorite gift this year was one of those discount cards that are like a credit card, it had free chips and salsa at Chili's and the kid went home and told his mom that I ate them for lunch for 3 days, so they got me that!!
