The teacher of my 5 years old boy will be 60 next week. What would you like to receive when you are getting 60 years old? Thanks for your ideas! Pat

I like the tote bag idea, if you could put the class picture (using the transfer paper for photo's on it and embroider all the children's names. I organized my 40th High School Reunion a few years back. I took my Annual to work, copied each students photo, (395 names) embroidered all their names, and put them on two large heavy pieces of corragated cardboard (4'x8') Our colours where black and red, so I covered the cardboard in black felt, did all the names on red felt and glued it all on the boards. I all did our school crest as name tags and also put their photo. I did a separate cardboard for to honour those who have passed on. Needless to say, everyone who attended remarked on what a great idea it was, and want them to be at any other reunion. Our 45th is coming up next year. I would take Tom Selleck. Tobi Keith, or Alan Jackson, any day. You must post a photo for whatever you decide.

A voucher for a day spa, massage, or beauty treatment would be my choice...
but I really need a tissue holder for my purse packs.
I made them for everyone else and I don't have one for myself yet. And yes, I'm 60 next birthday.
PS, if you don't have a design email me and i'll share the one i created with you. emad is in my profile and I will need to know your format and largest hoop size. hugs n roses, Meganne

A nice embroidered towel, bag, tea towel? I think they are great for teachers. I'm a teacher, not 60 yet, but getting there :(

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...not there yet. A tote bag with the students name, school, and grade would be nice.

If you do a tote bag or a towel, embroider the year & names of her pupils on it. Her tote bag may need wheels to make it easier to roll along instead of carring it. you could buy the wheels with handle from a shop that sells casses etc

I think a nice tote bag would be a great gift for a teacher no matter the age.Embroider something Real Cute on it. They always have books and many things to carry back and forth to school. A flower for you

Teachers usually appreciate anything. If it is hand made all the better, makes it more personal. I think I have saved every gift received thro the years (ending with 41). They are all special because they took time to think of me.

Teachers usually don't have time to bake..so bake her a batch or two of cookies/candy.. You could package some for the freezer for a later time when she can treat herself.:) A gift card for a book store is good too :)

crafter2243 by crafter2243 27 Oct 2008

Marji you are too funny

meganne by meganne 27 Oct 2008

I would have loved either, but I just saw a recent pic of our darling Sean & I'm afraid he was unrecognisable, he looked like a 90 year old derelict pauper, so sad, i wish i'd never seen it. Whereas I saw Patrick on a tv show recently and he still curls my toes, yummy.. mmmm!

marjialexa by marjialexa 28 Oct 2008

So sad, I loved Sean in the Indiana Jones movie. Um, guess that was a while ago. Sigh. Ok, I'll take the doilies & soap, I guess, sigh. Hee hee hee, M

If not, maybe you could embroiderer her a lovely doily or towel or a nice crocheted hankie....or some soap or perfume or chocolates(homemade) or biscuits(homemade). I am sure she would love anything from you!!!!!!

You are so funny! Pat

meganne by meganne 27 Oct 2008

Chocolates & biscuits, in fact anything edible, is out for me, watching my weight plus I'm allergic to chocolate, milk products and sugar, oh, & most perfumes, all cause me migraines and worse, so I never give people edible treats or perfume, just in case... These days so many more people have allergies.

And yes it makes me so mad I have to miss out on so many wonderful treats.
I was lying in bed, just last night, rattling off all the names of favourite lollies i ate as a kid, lovely way to fall asleep instead of counting sheep. I was absolutely stuffed on my chocky/lolly feast (no bad dreams last night) and no migraine today.. LOL!!

I don't think it makes a lot of difference if she's 60 or 40. A tote or (drawstring) bag is always welcome, a towel, a bookmark, specially if it has something on it relating to either her pupil or her hobbies.
