When I think about Gift Guides for this year, I traditionally think of gifts that are grouped for the beauty lover or for that techie in your life. But as I look around – nothing about this year screams traditional at all, so I’m going rogue!
Maybe I am biased because I live with a teacher that is super passionate about every little thing he does for his students and this year has been a roller coaster to say the least. I am continuously amazed by his commitment to learning behind-the-scenes, his ability to get students the education they need regardless of virtual or in-person teaching and his partnership with colleagues and the community to figure it all out. Teachers are truly amazing.
So this season, I wanted to make sure that they feel the gratitude too. Please make sure to thank your teachers and all the amazing people in your lives that are out there each and every day doing the best they can to navigate these times. I tried to find some unique and thoughtful things so please add to the list if you have more ideas below in the comments.
