Holiday Gift Idea: Teacher Survival Kit!

Need a fun and unique gift for your dance teacher? Create a “Dance Teacher Survival Kit”!  Make a list of items your dance teacher likes and create individual baskets for each teacher.  Stick it all in a cute basket or bin and wrap it up in a nice bow and you are set to go!  Since you’re customizing it, you can spend as much or as little as you’d like.

Practical Gifts To Include:

  • Hair ties or bobby pins if she has long hair
  • Aspirin
  • Mini-sewing kit
  • Small screwdriver if he or she is a tap teacher
  • Small massager tool (for sore muscles or feet)
  • Foot lotion or bath salts (although I’m guessing she already has a closet-full)
  • Pack of stickers (if they use stickers in class)

Funny Gifts To Include (you will need to add an explanation for each one):

  • A marble… for when you’ve lost yours
  • String / paperclip… to keep it all together
  • Sponge… to help clean dances
  • Rubber band.. to keep you flexible
  • Lifesavers… because you are one!
  • Stars (could be Starbursts, or an ornament)… you inspire your students to reach for the stars!
  • Candle… you light up people’s lives
