    Book gift certificates from the class

    The answer to the parent who seemed to think a Barnes and Noble gift certificate wouldn't be used for the teacher would be, "She wouldn't be limited to necessarily spend it all on the classroom. There are also adult books of all kinds, CDs and a Starbucks in there!":D Seriously, I have been teaching a long time and I have many books in the classroom (storage becomes an issue). A boy in my class gave me a $30 Borders card at the end of the year. I used this one for a travel guide for my upcoming Disney trip and on a paperback book for the plane. I have also used parts of cards like these to purchase a hardback fiction bestseller I normally wouldn't spend the money on, but one I was dying to read. Of course, the majority of the gift most years goes right back into the classroom, but the parents who think it isn't enough of a personal "gift" don't need to know that.
