    the cute snowman plates with a little molten cake on top...one set could be 4 gifts!
    or the individual brownies in the prep bowl sets...that would be 6 gifts!!

    After attending an Uppercase Living workshop last weekend...I am making glass block squares with a teacher saying on them for my daughters teachers. My son is a middle schooler so I am making smaller gifts for his teachers but all from items purchased from Uppercase Living.

    Think about the gender of the teacher too. I'd be wondering what the heck to do with one snowman plate if I got it.

    I think a mini-whipper with some hot cocoa that you packaged up would be nice, or an easy opener (my favorite item ever) or can strainer. Those are more useful to me. If I got a snowman plate I'd be like "okay now what?". Don't forget to put in a coupon for a discount on an order, too!

    Past years I've given the RUFTH Trivets; Small Batter Bowls w/ layered mixes; coffee & more cups w/minute cake mix w/recipe.

    So, now I'm thinking about the 2 cup prep bowls, or a trio of seasonings, or the tool turn about w/twixits & quickuts, or how about the 29 minutes to dinner cookbook - either volume.

    Thanks, Keith. It's good to hear from an actual teacher what's considered a nice gift.

    Last year, I gave my son's preschool teacher and teaching assistant the Sweetin' It Up set. (and a note saying Thanks for being so sweet!) They both loved them. I only have one child, so I guess I can spend a little more on his teachers. The year before, the teacher and assistant got a Dots small bowl filled with homemade spiced nuts.

    last year I did the prep bowls.....with 2 prep bowls, each filled with candy.
    Not sure what to do this year. I like your idea about the mini-whipper, Keith!!

    If it's just one or two teachers, I love the tool turn about idea! And the cookbook too. Either are great. Just don't forget that coupon. ;)
