I am giving my son's bus driver a $5.00 gift card to Dunkin Donuts with a cinnamon ornament I made. My DH thinks I shouldn't for a bus driver but I appreciate that she picks up my son 4 day's a week and brings him home safely. I just wonder if it's too cheap?

Teachers spend a lot of their own cash on supplies for school so gift cards are definitely a nice thing to help them replace that money.

I think $10 in that situation is perfect.

I'm a teacher and I would love a gift card to just about any store! The cute box or holder does jazz things up a bit, but IMO not necessary. $10 is good.

Also 10 dollar starbucks card or Jamba juice is a hit...

I just bought gift cards for each of my kiddo's teachers today. $10 each x 6 teachers (3 children with 2 teachers each), so sounds good to me! I'm sure she'll think it is nice that you thought of her.

I think teachers LOVE gift cards, cuz they do probably get a bunch of stuff they can't use. I think $10 for that kind of class is plenty. Add in a little ornament or cute reusable box that holds a gift card and you've got a cute little gift.

Preschool Teacher Gift

Postby haileysmom » Thu Dec 11, 2008 04:54 pm

I have no idea how much to spend on a gift for my daughter's preschool teacher. It's more like a Mommy and Me kind of class since I go w/ her, there is very little "teaching" involved at this point. I was going to get her a gift card to Target for $10. Is that enough or too cheap? Is a gift card thoughtless? I was just thinking she probably has lots of mugs/ornaments etc. and w/ a gift card she can get what she wants (also, I hate shopping :)
