thank-you-teacher-apple-mesaIf a teacher has made a difference in your child’s or your life, then if you’re like me, you’re overflowing with gratitude and looking for a way to express it.  Many of my products are made with teachers in mind, because I know how amazing it is when someone goes above and beyond in that job.  Here are a few suggestions for teacher gifts from my Etsy, Amazon, and Zazzle shops:


chalkboard pendant

mini cd case desk calendar

dance in the rain post-it notes

Dance in the Rain Post-It Notes Post-it® Notes
Looking for something simple?  How about post-it notes with a positive message — one that might help a teacher through some of those days when the kids are not being perfect angels perhaps?  This design’s hand-lettered art is based on Vivian Greene’s quote “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance on the rain.”  Also available on a bunch of other fun products here in the Zazzle store.

 And don’t forget to send a card!

Even if it’s all you can do this year, there’s still nothing like receiving a personalized card with a heartfelt message of gratitude inside.  These cards can all be found in the Nifty Notecards section of my Etsy shop.
