The holidays are approaching and we have a long list of people to shop for, kids, spouses, in laws, friends, and everyone in between. One very special person that is most likely on that list is your child's teacher. They spend all year taking care of our little ones making sure they are learning, staying safe, teaching them to good be friends, and so much more.
I know that I have struggled in the past coming up with a gift for my daughter's teachers that they will truly enjoy. I don't want to get them a pack of lotion that they don't like the scent of and ends up in the back of their vanity, or thrown away. It's a waste of my money and it's not a great gift if they don't like it. I've spoken with a lot of teachers and the general opinion is that they appreciate gift cards the most. So I've came up with a long list of places that offer gift cards that also allows you to put some thought into it. You may not know enough about your child's teacher to put them into a category of local lover, spa goer, or active, and that's okay - at the end I have a list of Obvious, Can't Go Wrong Gifts. I kept it simple with only a few options in each category so it doesn't seem overwhelming, I promise you can't go wrong with any of these options. I made sure to include something for every budget. Where are my teachers at? What would you add to this list?

*Tip: If you're getting a gift card to a place that provides a service - make sure it's enough to cover at least 1 service,even if it's the basic, nothing is worse than showing up for a mani and finding out that your gift card only has $5 on it.
