My SIL grauates this weekend and is going into teaching. She will be teaching middle school or high school math and hasn’t found a job yet. I had thought to maybe make her a little basket with teacher must have items like tissues, hand sanitizer, pencils, and wine (lol). Do you think this would be a good gift? Anthing else to add or any other gift ideas would be great!

@ieatunicorns: Wine is definitely a must for a teacher!!! She will need index cards, about a million pencils, a million more pencils, a quality pencil sharpener, sharpies, highlighters…
Where is she looking for a job?

Your teacher basket idea is super cute, and she’d love it, but if it takes time to find a job she won’t be able to use it for a while. So, I’d definitely add things she can use now, like the wine! Also maybe some small ($5) gift cards so she can treat herself while she’s job hunting: Starbucks, etc.

@ProfessorGirl: I was kind of on the fence about the basket since she doesn’t have a job yet. That is a good idea to get a gift card or something too. Her Boyfriend or Best Friend is graduating too and they are having a joint party. Maybe we will do the basket for her and then get them a gift card to go out for dinner.
@peachacid: Thanks for some more ideas. She is looking pretty much every where in Southern WI, I think.

@ieatunicorns: Make sure she knows that schools sometimes don’t post their listings on the teacher websites (like schoolspring.com), so she should check the district websites as well!!
