July 29, 2021 4 min read 31 Comments

It’s that time of year again—the most wonderful time of the year for some of you. For others, it’s the end of sleeping in, not packing lunches and the start of rushing off to activities. But it's also time to show a little sense of appreciation for your kid's teachers or your Mom—who is also a teacher. So, we asked the Famvibe Community teachers about the best gift they'd ever been given and gathered them in a list. Let see what we have here!  

1. Gum Jar

A Mason Jar filled with enough of their favorite gum to last them a couple of months.

See how one mom styled jars of gum on Three Different Directions. Get a bulk six-pack of Extra gum on Amazon for $12.55+, or do a search for "bulk gum" to find the brand and flavor you're looking for.

2. Dish Towels Set  

A set of holiday dish towels or lemon-print dishtowels and fancy dish soap that they normally wouldn't buy for themselves.

Get them on Amazon: the holiday towel set for $11.99+ available in five designs), the lemon towel set for $13.99 (if you like that aesthetic, they have a pineapple set, too), and a three-pack of Mrs. Meyers lavender-scented dish soap for $10.90
