In the past few weeks, I’ve had three people I know ask me for my opinion on the “perfect” present. As a teacher myself, I often get asked for advice on finding that special teacher’s gift — you know, for those times when a Tim’s card just won’t do. In my youngest sister’s case, her oldest just finished the first year of preschool and this is their first time giving gifts to a teacher. My other sister wanted to mark a wonderful year with a remarkable teacher by giving a special gift that stood out from the crowd. My girlfriend was similarly looking for advice on something “that a teacher would really like – you know, something other than a gift card.”
