How much for teacher gift cards?
What is an appropriate amount for gift cards for elementary school teachers? I usually get them a gift card to Target or something similar, along with a card/letter from the kid and maybe some baked goods. This year I'm thinking about doing two cards, one practical one that they can use for classroom supplies if they need them, and one more for them, like the local coffee place.
Either way, I was looking at a total of about $20 per teacher. The other adult in my house thinks that's excessive. Any thoughts?
I know the post office and some of the express carriers have a $20 limit for gifts, which we usually follow, and I figure the people who try to pound some knowledge into my kids' heads are worth at least that. Thoughts?
