I absolutely adore my son's Kindergarten teacher. She is sunshine and rainbows and unicorns and pure magic; everything that an early childhood educator should be.

Pick up some school supplies -- boxes of crayons, pencils, glue sticks, and an object that makes for a sturdy base such as reusable coffee mug and secure the school supplies around the base. Top with your a gift card and as the icing on the cake.
  4. Personalize Tumblers: Like most schools, our girl's school is trying to be as green as possible. They've really cut down on waste and are encouraging everyone to use refillable bottles. That's where Tervis comes in. Customize a Tervis tumbler for your teacher here. Upload a photo and turn a reusable tumbler into a keepsake.
