Teacher Gift Guide pt 1

This is my favorite time of year in the classroom! A lot of teachers hate it because it can be chaotic, but I love it because it's the last time before we enter the joyless time of January-April. 
I also love it because gifts are my love language and I love when my students come up to me and wish me a Merry Christmas with a cute little gift! 
While every gift I get from a student is special, because it's from them and any gesture shows that they care, I have a lot of gifts that are well intentioned but not useful. Such as this present..(no offense to the blogger who came up with it!). There are a lot of parents who want to get their children's teacher something good, but they don't really know where to start. A lot of them somehow think we live at I get a lot of expo markers and pencils. Anyway, all that to say I decided to throw together a Teacher Gift Guide. I have a couple awesome present ideas that any teacher is sure to love. 

The first is a dainty piece of jewelry. Most of the jewelry that teachers get look like this, but something classic like this Gold Apple Necklace from Tiny Roses Jewelry is a way better option. It's modern, yet classic enough that a teacher of any age would love it. I love it so much I wear it daily, I even wore it for our Christmas Card pictures! I just love that it's a small reminder of what I do and how much I love my students, even when they are little stinkers. I also feel like it would be such a  thoughtful gift.

If you choose to buy this for the teacher in your life, you also get to support a small business. I know there is controversy about a MLM being a small business, but just selling Lipsense has opened my eyes to how challenging running a small business can be and how when you buy from a small business, you are literally supporting an actual person and providing them groceries, or gas, or something like that.
Tiny Roses Jewelry has been so great to work with. They have a lot of other types of jewelry if you are looking for something for Christmas. I love the druzy trend, so I particularly love her druzy necklaces.

Stay tuned for the next post in this series!
