Sweet Treats for Teachers

Never underestimate the value of food when it comes to teachers!
I think it's a great idea to give teachers treats as a sign of appreciation for all of their hard work. Here's a few fun ideas I've tried with teachers:

Right before Fall, Winter, or Spring break, give each teacher packs of Carefree and Extra gum with a notecard that says "You deserve an Extra Carefree break for all that you do. Get some much deserved rest and relaxation!

Buy each teacher one of the gourmet Godiva mint chocolates (they come in a very nice square package) and write a little note that says, "Thanks for all of your hard work on____________. It really "mint" a lot!

Give teachers an Almond Joy and a Mounds candy bar and put a little note that says, "Thanks for the MOUNDS of JOY you bring our students everyday!"

Give each teacher a "PayDay" candy bar and a note that says "You deserve an extra Payday for all that you do."

Roll a cart around with cold cans of Coke and Diet Coke and tell each teacher to "Have a Coke and and smile (you younger teachers might not get that one).

When a teacher in your building completes an advanced degree or earns some other professional honor, buy them a bag of Smarties and give them a card that says, "You're such a Smartie. I'm so proud of you!"

There's always one teacher on the faculty that has a great sense of humor and keeps everything light-hearted. Place a Snickers candybar in that teacher's mailbox with a note that says, "I always enjoy all of our snickers. Thanks for being such a joy to be around."

Does anyone know of any more?
