Both my parents and sister are teachers and I frequently ask them what types of gifts are their favorite to receive.  It never fails that favorite treats and drinks are among the top requested gifts for teacher appreciation, who couldn’t use a little pick me up when wrangling 20+ 6 year old kiddos all day?!  This simple gift is a fun way to make giving your teacher their favorite soda a little more extraordinary.
