When we write our Christmas gift list, it’s nice to remember our Day Care, Pre-Prep and School Teachers and any other members of the village helping to raise our kids this year!
It’s a lovely gesture to give a little thank-you to the people who have taught, played with and endured our children this past year. But it does not mean you have to spend a fortune or sell a kidney to afford it by any means – there’s so much available for under $20….but then if you want to spend more, there’s lots available too!
