Well, I got a gift I absolutely loved from my kids at christmas. Of course, I'm an elementary school teacher, but I think anyone would have loved this one.
It was a large basket, filled with:
a beautiful teapot
an assortment of teas from Trader Joe's
An assortment of "treats" to go with the tea
And a very nice gift certificate to Barne's & Noble.
I spent my winter break curled up, reading, and sipping tea. Heaven.
Others that I have treasured include both indoor and outdoor plants, but that is because my kids know that I love to garden. I have a couple of plants in my atrium that I got from kids 5 years ago, and I still think about them when I water. I also have miniature roses in my garden, and some poppies that reseed every year, that were gifts from my students; along with a garden sign painted for me a decade ago by a first grader.
Books, tea, plants...everything I love. What does this teacher love?
