we gave Saige's 4 preschool teachers Starbucks cards too! I copied that Pinterest idea with "thanks a latte"... what's your all-time favourite student gift? with Saiger's sassy'ness I may need to suck up ;)
I am a BIG fan of the gift card! While I think that all of the "teachery" stuff is cute and sweet, after a few years in the biz, we are inundated with all things apple. I would much prefer a trip to Starbucks (or TARGET!) with a gift card in hand. Also, I once received a monogrammed tote bag that I still use today. Very cute and functional!
