As the end of the school year dawns, I want to hear your ideas for gifts - gifts you give to students, to coworkers, to special's teachers, to administration, etc. Also, you could share one of your favorite gifts you've received as a teacher. These could be your original ideas or something you've found on Pintrest...aka the source of all truly great ideas :)
Student Gifts
Here are some fun (and affordable!) ideas
for gifts to give your students:

I've made a packet of 5 printable gift tags.
You can grab the gift tags here for FREE!

I also did Student Awards last year -
