(MOBILE, Ala.) - As you're checking off your Christmas gift list, did you remember your child's teacher?
For busy moms, there's no better present to give teachers than a gift card and the recipients will more than likely feel the same way.
When buying a gift card, think about your teacher's likes and interests.
For practical teachers give a card for classroom supplies, a car wash or a local grocery store.
Music lovers, an iTunes gift card will be a big hit.
Coffee drinkers, gift a week's worth of lattes at your local coffee shop.
Make it personal; include a hand-written note from you and your child with the gift card.
Touch on your favorite thing about the teacher and how he or she's made the year special so far.
Attach your gift card to a small themed gift.
For example, a coffee shop gift card can come in a reusable mug, a shopping gift card in a reusable tote or a music gift card with a holiday CD.
Wrap it up, a few supplies and a lot of creativity make for some great gift card presentations including DIY snow globes and bouquets!
