Teacher Gifts that Get Good Grades

So when your child took the apple to their teacher, did she like it very much? I'd guess not very much, right? What about turning it into a chocolate covered apple instead? Now we're talking. Add some candy toppings or sprinkles and Mrs. Brown will have a yummy snack while reading over your child's paper. Teachers are true national heroes and often underappreciated. No matter what country you're from, without teachers where would we be? They work hard before, during and after classes to make sure our children have the best tools possible in order to succeed and often times don't get the credit they deserve. Now here's your moment!

What are some teacher gifts that will "get the grades"?

Many gifts can become expensive and it's uncertain whether the teachers will like them. How about gifts that are economical and will bring smiles? Many gourmet sweets or candy gifts are easy to make and don't cost much. They're delicious and look good too. There are a lot of easy recipes for homemade candy and desserts to pick from.

So what are some great tasting dessert gifts that are easy to create?

Two of my favorites are chocolate covered fruits and a variety of cupcake flavors. There are many chocolate covered recipes that make good gifts from chocolate covered strawberries or apples to coffee beans and different nuts. The technique of chocolate covering is pretty simple involving some high quality chocolate and either a double boiler or just a microwave. Some great tasting nuts to use in these recipes are pecans or almonds. Coffee or espresso beans are tasty options to use too. Pack your candy gifts in decorative boxes and place them in plastic gift bags, and keep gifts cold right before delivery.

There is an endless variety of cupcake flavors that would make great teachers gifts and you can spread frosting on top and decorate them. You can stir in pieces of strawberries, peaches, other fruits and nuts, or even make small versions of bigger types of cakes such as red velvet cake or upside down pineapple cake. You can make the music teacher Mr. Smith many of the same kind or create a few batches and combine the flavors to give several different teachers multi-flavored batches. My suggestion would be at least two different flavors, chocolate cupcakes of some kind and some fruit flavors: try triple chocolate and vanilla rainbow cupcakes. Add your choice of toppings and pack them in a sealed plastic container. Find some pretty wrapping paper and keep cool for as long as possible.

There are just a few supplies required to make these gifts, but they will bring lots of smiles to these national treasures, our teachers. Make them feel special and show appreciation for their hard work and assistance in our chidren's scholar successes. It's time we return our teachers the favor!
