Valentine hack: Gift cards for teachers
Michelle's adapted a popular holiday teacher gift for Valentine's Day:
My newest favorite thing to do (for teachers and camp counselors and bus drivers and all of those people you want to recognize but don't want to spend too much money on ... ) will be adapted this year for Valentine's Day.
Get a cheapy tiny red gift bag (or crafty types could make a construction paper envelope I suppose) and place in it some $5 gift cards to coffee places, 7-11s, places like that. This has been a super hit with everyone so far, economical for me and reinforces the concept of appreciation for my kids (I like to think).
