Does anyone have an idea for a holiday gift for a male teacher? We usually resort to lotions, plants, etc. My younger dd's teacher, who loves frogs, is getting a frog watering can this year, but I have no idea what to get for my older dd's teacher, who is a man. He's 30ish, married, and the father of a young boy. Dd says that he likes fish (not fishing), but I can't think of a fish related gift that would work for a man. Ideas anyone?

My dd has 2 male teachers and I am resorting to the not-so-creative idea of Starbucks gift cards..They are brothers, young, and unmarried..Couldn't think of much else<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

My sons teacher loves chocolate. So luckly we are getting him chocolate. I think food would be a great gift. Everyone has to eat right?

A gift certificate to Brookstone or Sharper Image would be great, too!<br><br>
Or you can always get a bookstore gift cert, too.

Bookstore gift certificate or gift certificate to a teacher supply store or stationery store. But that's what I would do for a female teacher as well.

Does he have fish-- in a tank? If so, why not a nice gift certificate the pet store closest to him (so he can buy supplies)?<br>
I'm not sure a gift certificate to Brookstones would be very useful--places like that tend to sell gadget kind of stuff (at least the last time I was there--if they've changed--then disregard that statement).<br>
Other fish ideas--ties, keychains, picture frames, mugs.
