speaking of teacher gifts...
I was at Bed,Bath & Beyond, and saw they had these cute wooden bowls (about the size of a chip bowl) and they were painted with snowmen. They were only $4.00! I think it would be cute to make hot cocoa mix (with a small baggie of marshmallows attached), coffee mix and a scarf or mittens in it, then wrap it with clear cellophane and a large bow.

I'm giving the teachers boxes of truffles, 3-6 in each box. I won't be making them, but I have a couple of classic truffle recipes that I've tried that are great I could share with you if you are interested. You just have to get a little box and the tiny paper cups to hold them in.

Also I've made BEAUTIFUL gourmet chocolate dipped apples, with 3 different coats, nuts, etc "Mrs. Prindable" style. They look gorgeous and are delicious, easy to make and not expensive at all. I have a recipe for that too.

Wow, these are GREAT ideas!

Now, do you give the recipient the mixes IN a new coffee cup? The cake things, particularly, are wonderful for people who live alone.

A box with two mugs, some cake mixes and some coffee mixes would be a wonderful gift for my mother and for my aunt!

Yes, I give the cake mixes with a new coffee cup. I can usually find some that are not only nice, but inexpensive as well at most dollar stores.

I'm not really sure about getting carried away with "gifts" for the teacher, sounds terribly like bribery and coercion for better grading breaks, which is downright wrong, cut it where you will...

These "teachers" are making a ton of wages over 9 months working time, even if I admit they are working with our kids (this should be a challenge, given the gene pool may be wide, but terribly shallow!)

Okay, given you are going to do this in spite of whatever I say, if you are giving cookies or coffee (or whatever!) to somebody, consider that individual's concern of what will consuming this do to me? So remember to include the recipe ingredients, and sign off with your signature, averring that its true!

If its a teacher that has made a "life-changing" boost to a child's future (this does come, in a number of aspects!) make the thank-you gift a bit more permanent and significant, consider the trophies on our various "I Love Me" walls; statuettes and art are more appropriate (and note I've been down this rocky road, and a grey, balding somewhat overweight sort with a son with a whole whack more challenges than any of us ever faced)

Anyways, I'm chary of hitting teachers with such wonders, I'd sooner give them to my neighbours, or maybe thats just "me being me" once again...
