You know their cupboard has a million coffee mugs. And they can't possibly fit one more ornament on that tree. So what do you give the teacher who has everything? The most popular answer is GIFT CARDS. So here are some gift card ideas for you for dear teacher for Christmas.
1. Chapters or Indigo
Our guess is that gift card will go towards some fun new books for the classroom. But maybe teacher will pick up something special for themselves as well. Either way it's a practical card that will surely get used.
2. Tim Hortons or Starbucks or Second Cup
Yup, caffiene is that teacher's friend! How else do you think they are bright eyed and bushy tailed at 8 a.m. ready to take on a class of tasmanian devils?
See above. Except imagine that poor teacher at the end of the week!
4. Teacher Supply Store
In Burlington, be sure to visit The Learning Tree. But a gift card to any teacher supply store will be appreciated by a teacher looking to spice up the classroom after the holidays
It's December. We all know that pencils and erasers have been lost, notebooks have been used up and every sheet of paper in the classroom is gone. So many teachers buy classroom supplies out of their own pockets – a gift card for an office supply store could go a long way.
6. Cineplex Gift Card
Even teachers go to the movies! Plus you know they'll spend it on themselves.
7. Restaurant Gift Card
Want to treat your favourite teacher to a meal out? You'll find cards for every restaurant out there. You may even want to pick up a card for Subway or McDonald's for when they want to sneak away from school over the lunch hour!
You can purchase a charitable gift card for your teacher on this great Canadian Charitable site. It allows them to pick which charity they'd like to donate to. That way you don't pick the charity close to your heart – when they'd really rather sponsor something else
No matter what gift card you pick – as long as it comes with a thoughtful card from you or your child – you can't really go wrong. Our teachers need to keep hearing how much we appreciate what they do for our children each and every day!
