This weekend, my 12 year old daughter is taking an ACT test.  She was chosen to take this test due to her outstanding grades, yes I'm bragging a bit....   Wink 

I want to do something really nice for the teachers who "didn't" have to stay after school or come to school early to help my daughter prep for this test.  All she did is ask and they were more than willing to help her out, great huh? 

Any ideas?  I did soaps, herbal pillows, heat packs and peppermint bark for Christmas.  How do I top that one?  LOL!

Thanks!

Well, I know it's been awhile but I love to craft for teachers so...

Perhaps candles, bowls of candy, scarves, or flowers? And wallets are good, too, as well as jewelry.

Do you scrapbook?  What about a mini album she could fill with pictures of her students?

Thank you ladies for your input.  Any suggestions are appreciated more than you know!   Undecided 
I don't scrapbook but have made nice cards out of card stock, photo's and a lot of stickers, I love stickers!
Again, THANK YOU!  I will post here when I am done with my crafting for the teachers.

As a teacher, classroom stuff is SO appreciated.

Cool posters/signs/bulletin board materials
Fun writing utensils (flower topped pens)
Hall Pass (too big to stick in a pocket, not cool enough to steal and possibly themed to go w/subject or teacher)
Organizers for writing utensils, office supplies, papers etc

I know you're hoping for a crafty idea, but the gift that got the most positive reactions from my kids' teachers over the years is a really heart-felt note with some McDonald's gift certificates.  I say something like, "lunch is on us."

You know, I think this is going to have to be my best option as I haven't been able to sew or make my soaps that I purchased all the fabby and fresh batches of Lavender, Bergamont and Fresh Tea and Ginger oils! 

Thank you everyone for your very nice, thoughtful, teacher gifts.

my son is a weeee bit younger (he's graduating pre-k!) and for his teacher I'm doing a gift in a jar soup mix and a gift card for $25 to our local grocery store for the rest of the ingredients she will need. I'm going to attach a note that says "The last day of school is no day to worry about whats for dinner". I'm also making a cranberry bath scrub and giving her a knitted dishcloth with an apple and one with a pencil. The bath scrub and dishcloths are also being given to the student teacher.

Treadmill Knitter, that's a great idea!  I'm going to do this for my kid's teacher.
