Good Deal: Gifts for Teachers

I would like to remind all of the working mamas out there that it might be a good idea to give your daycare teachers a gift this holiday season.  And, gift cards are always the way to go.

So far this year I have given my daycare providers cookies (see yesterday's post), and on Wednesday they are getting a little something else special.  Here is what I wrote inside each teacher's card...

Dear Miss ...
Merry Christmas!  Thank you for being such a fun teacher.  Please enjoy a "time out" on me!
Love, Jackson

Inside the card are 2 movie passes for AMC Theaters. Each teacher will also get a box of Dots (hello, the best movie theater candy ever).


How is this even affordable for 4 daycare teachers you ask?  Well, if you have a Costco card, use it people.  I was able to get 2 tickets each for $16 at Costco.  Now, that's a good deal.

I also found these super cute pack of 12 snowman cards for only $1.25 at Michaels Craft Store.

Now if you don't want to spend that much money (or can't afford to), a nice card and a $5 gift card to Starbucks would be a great present.  Basically you are buying them break and a cup of warmth during the stressful holiday season. 

I hope you all are able to get your teachers a little something this holiday season.  And no, I'm not saying this because I'm a teacher myself by the way.  I actually work in advertising.
