It’s sad but true, Mr 2’s Preschool teacher, the cool dude who wears shorts, beanies and a lazy smile is breaking up with us.
Okay maybe he’s not breaking up with us but he is leaving and we want to say thanks.
What do you buy a 20 something, guy preschool teacher?
Nope. I couldn’t figure it out either.
I knew that alcohol wasn’t the answer, although for a man who worked with 30 plus kids a day, I’d say he deserved it. But no I knew there was something better.
So I did what all good mothers do. I got on facebook and asked for my friends and families suggestions on what to get him.
My father-in-law Lloyd said, good bless him, a cane to help him cope. Sister-in-law Karla, herself a teacher for many years said Valium. I figured she would know so off I went to buy some. No, just kidding. I kept polling.
Other entertaining suggestions along the Valium line were chill pills, nuts and a nut cracker (he’s nuts?) and earplugs.
Here are the other great and sometimes dubious top 17 present suggestions that you all came up with:
17 perfect (?) presents for a male preschool teacher
- Good book
- Chill pills
- geek.com voucher
- T-Shirt from Wollongong’s own Brands Deluxe
- Rebel sport or other sport shop voucher
- Australian Geographic voucher
- JB HiFi voucher
- Movie voucher
- Favourite restaurant/cafe voucher
- Dymocks voucher
- itunes voucher
- Red balloon experience voucher
- Amazon voucher
- Travel coffee cup like my favs from keepcup.com
So I bet you’re all dying to know what we ended up getting him?
Well, a little birdie told us energy drinks and pizza are two of his favourite things. So we make up a pack with both (no of course not actual pizza).
But for future reference alcohol sounds like a great gift solution for mere mortal mothers of two 🙂
What’s your solution to the perfect gift?
