5 teacher gifts that de­serve an A+

StarMetro Toronto - - THE FEED -

This is it. This is the year you’re not go­ing to re­sort to the mid­night run to pick up a last-minute gift card for your child’s teacher.

In­stead, wrap up some­thing a lit­tle more per­sonal for that spe­cial ed­u­ca­tor in your child’s life Herbs Gar­den­ing Kit—mediter­ranean ($22.00, In­digo, in­digo.ca) If your teacher has a bit of a green thumb or even loves to get in the kitchen and cook, they’ll ap­pre­ci­ate this very dif­fer­ent end of year gift. This cute kit al­lows them to grow a va­ri­ety of herbs — this set in­cludes rose­mary, sage and chives — right in their own kitchen to snip, stir and sprin­kle into their favourite soups, pas­tas and stews. (Also avail­able in Ital­ian herbs or herbs for pesto.) Ev­ery­day Hockey He­roes: In­spir­ing Sto­ries On and Off the Ice ($34.99, In­digo, In­digo.ca) Quo Cos­metic Crack­ers

($15, Shop­pers Drug Mart)

How many times have you opened a cracker post-turkey meal and been left with a trin­ket you know is likely bound for the trash? In­stead if you have a teacher who also hap­pens to be a beauty buff, they might ap­pre­ci­ate the mini lip gloss found in­side each cracker. De­signer ipad case ($19.99, Mar­shalls)

Please. Let the teacher pro­tect their own de­vice and keep it away from her stu­dents with style. This hand­some ipad case has a green plaid front and is fin­ished with a leather trim. And at 8.5 inches by 6.5 inches, it can also eas­ily fit an ipad Mini. Days of the week socks ($12.99, Win­ners) Funky socks are still very much in fash­ion and your favourite ed­u­ca­tor may just ap­pre­ci­ate hav­ing a set of socks set up for each day of the week. This five pack of ca­sual socks fea­tures bold and unique pat­terns to com­plete your much-loved teacher’s look.
