Our favorite gift ideas for teachers and neighbors
THIS is the week that I’m going to get all of my Christmas shopping done…or at least, that’s what I say every year.  There are some great deals out there, and if you follow us on Facebook, then you know that I’ve been posting my favorites for you.

On Sunday, Amy shared her favorite gift ideas for women (maybe even herself!) and today I’m back with my favorite ideas for teachers and neighbors.  Obviously, most of these gift ideas would work for a variety of recipients, but these are things that I’ve given in the past that have been received with enthusiasm.

At under $19 shipped, these are one of my go-to gifts.  They’re perfect for neighbors, especially new ones, and you can also get them customized for teachers to use to stamp papers.

Beach Cocktails book ($17)

or “S is for Southern” book ($28)

Obviously, depending on your location, you might want to swap in a more relevant local book, but the Beach Cocktails book is always a favorite paired with a bottle of holiday cheer.  I’ll often add some funny cocktail napkins or, for an extra-special gift, these ceramic coasters ($32):

With bar carts all the rage, it’s always nice to give a gift that looks pretty displayed out in the open.  These definitely fit the bill.

Is it appropriate to give bar-related gifts to teachers?  I’ll let you judge based on your individual situation, but I’m pretty sure our teachers deserve an adult beverage after dealing with moody teenagers all day, every day!

Here’s another fun gift for teachers:  a felt letter board ($20).  These inspire some serious creativity in both teachers and their students!

For a less expensive gift, why not gift a teacher with a holiday-scented cleaning spray and hand soap?  Mrs. Meyers and Caldrea both make yummy seasonal fragrances; wiping down those desks and other germ-ridden surfaces can be more pleasurable when they’re using something that smells good.  For our neighbors, I’ll include a pretty holiday towel or a scented candle.

Caldrea countertop spray ($9, get $10 off using my referral link here).  There are several holiday fragrances, but the gilded balsam birch is my favorite.

Mrs. Meyers has a yummy smelling peppermint, too (here, $3.79):

I tend NOT to give teachers anything with shiny red apples on it as I figure they have enough of that already!  Blanket scarves are always a huge hit and that’s what I’m giving our female teachers this year (I have spoiled the surprise if any of them are reading this!).

These are under $15 shipped and come in twenty styles so there are no repeats if you’re giving multiples, and this black and white buffalo check one can be monogrammed.
