Usually I give food gifts to teachers, since I never feel like I know them well enough to make something more personal. This year, however, my son told me that his teacher collects sea horses and he wanted to give her something to add to her collection. Athena made me aware of this craft punch, which inspired this gift.
Teachers can never have enough cards, envelopes, and Post-its, right!? I prepared some for her, left some blank so she can punch her own with the punch I'm including, bought pretty colored pens, and added the "sea horse confetti" that fell out as I was punching away. I doubt your kids' teacher collects sea horses, but there are so many punches in our Martha Stewart Crafts line that there is something for everyone, for sure. How about alphabets for the kindergarten teacher, numbers for the math teacher, an apple as the classic teacher symbol, or a snowflake for the season. Regardless what you choose, you'll have a thoughtful gift for someone who deserves one.
Happy Holidays and thank you to teachers of all kinds.
