    Anyone have any ideas for small gifts to welcome teachers back to school? Trying to think of something for my fellow K teachers and am stuck for ideas.

    clipboards with your school name and grade or their name on it. Pens on a lanyard in your school colors. At the end of the year the teachers all got a pen attached to a "caribiner" (Sp?) (it is a big clip)

    One year, the school got us portfolio binders with the school name on it...the kind that hold a legal pad. I love mine.

    On a more personal note, how about an aromatherapy candle in a stress reducing scent? Or bath and body lotion - same idea, a stress reducing scent. BAth and Bodyworks is having a huge sale right now and lots of their spa products are $4-$8 each.
