Need Ideas!

Hi everyone!

I need some help.

My sister is graduating as a primary school teacher at the end of this year, and I want to make her a “teacher survival package”.

But I’m not sure what else to put in it.

So far, this is what I’ve got (ideas wise – I haven’t bought or made anything yet, I’ll be doing that after my exams are over):

  • Making a bag (and getting it monogrammed with “Mrs *surname*”). I’m thinking this pattern
  • Pencil case to match the bag (also monogrammed)
  • Antibacterial wipes (because kids really are gross)
  • Big thing of hand sanitiser (see previous – and the soap at school always seemed to be empty)
  • A couple of nice pens, with refills (like Parker pens or something)
  • A travel mug (one of those ones that say “Best Teacher Ever” or similar)

I want to add some of those novelty things (like “a rubber band for when your patience is stretched to the limit”) but I’m not sure what I should do for those.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
