I'll second that

Every year the gift I struggle with the most is always for the teachers. As Becca put it on her blog(visit here)-dreaded. I love the teachers, but let's face it....I don't know them well enough to know what they like and there is a fine line as to what is appropriate. Plus in my little head I only have a small library of ideas to choose from.

I am going with boring, but appreciated gift cards. In my previous life I worked with Sheri, a seriously creative girl, who opened my eyes to the art of wrapping. No matter how small the gift, the way she wrapped it up made you feel extra special.

Last year I made these ornaments, so I went with them again(like I said-small archives in this brain). Then, earlier this season I saw The Nester's post on her ragamuffin garland and never got around to doing it on a big scale, instead I used the idea for wrapping.
