    As always, Lina, you have so many clever ideas!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks so much Deb!

    My sons teacher is expecting her first child this summer, would a baby geared thank you be appropriate for teacher appreciation gift or should we make that separate?

    • Renee

      If it were me, I would love a baby geared gift!! It’s such an exciting time when you’re anticipating your first child 👶🏼

    • Lo

      I think you could do either. If you really like the teacher I’d do a teacher gift and baby gift.

    • Emilie

      I’m a kindergarten teacher currently expecting and I love the idea of getting her something baby themed!

    • Heather

      Thank you all for your feedback, she is an amazing teacher I think I’ll try to do a little something for her and baby

      • Sara

        When I was pregnant I had a lovely shower put on by my students and parents at school. However, the best thing I received was, in lieu of cards, they requested board books where students wrote on a little nameplate. My daughter’s library was started by favorites of my “other” children. It was really special.


    Perfect! Thanks for so many options.

  4. Lo

    I got boxes of chocolates ( Easter clearance but the good kind) but in the back of my head I hear my sister saying “just give us the giftcard” Hahahaha.

  5. Melissa

    I love the movie and mani ideas!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Mellisa!

  6. Molly

    Any ideas for a teaching getting married?

  7. LR

    Anyone have suggestions for a tutor? My child wouldn’t have passed this year without a tutor so I was wondering if I should give her an end-of-the-school-year gift.

  8. Amanda

    Thank you! I printed “You are the balm”..great and inexpensive, useful idea!

    Also would love to know about a teacher getting married. Should we ask the whole class to do something sweet for her?
