Teacher Gift

Yi!!

There's a new survey that shows that 10% of teachers feel awkward when their students give them gifts for the holidays. Besides this, Debenhams department stores says that the average amount that's spent on a teacher's gift is $78--some parents spend up to $150 and those parents who have multiple children spend up to $470!

Steve thinks that Slacker should be buying a gift that's around $100 so his son Noah stands out. Slacker doesn't even know what he should get the teacher! Everyone always says to get them a starbuck's gift card, but what if they don't drink coffee? And if you're supposed to be spending around $100 for a gift, what are you going to get them, a diamond bracelet? Even then, that's ridiculous and it would look like you're trying to bribe the teacher with something. Not only that, it would be really awkward if the gift is from a single parent.

I remember my parents once bought my favorite teacher hockey tickets and I sensed zero awkwardness. He was just so excited to have a gift that was different than an apple.

Have you ever gotten an awesome gift for a teacher? How about a weird gift? If you're a teacher, what's the most memorable gift you've ever gotten from a student?

Until Next Time, xoxo--Intern Elizabeth
