Published:

Trying to think of the perfect end-of-the-year teacher’s gift? You’re thinking too hard. We asked NJ teachers what they really wanted, and the answer was virtually unanimous: gift cards! Here’s the breakdown:

  • General cash cards from Visa or Amex 
  • iTunes gift cards
  • Massage/manicure/pedicure cards
  • Coffee gift cards from Dunkin’ Donuts or Starbucks
  • Bookstore gift cards
  • Chain retailer cards for Target or Walmart
  • Gift cards to local stores​

Gift Cards Too Impersonal? 

Almost as unanimous, teachers said they appreciated a heartfelt thank you note to go along with the gifts.
