FOR CHER ONLY Hi here we go again. I almost forgot our schools

Resolved Question:

FOR CHER ONLY Hi here we go again. I almost forgot our school's office manager and our wonderful principal both have birthday's coming up when we get back. Our office manager is a self taught chef, she is an excellent cook and has put herself through cooking school as a side hobby. She already has a lot of books and utensils so this is going to require some creativity or ingenuity butt I trust you. My principal is just a wonderful married lady two kids who is every teacher's dream. What would be a nice gift of appreciation for her love of education? Unfortunately I can only go as high as $40 for each of them. thanks in advance for your help. Steve

Hi again Steve, and thanks for your patience.

For your school's Office Manager who is a chef, I think you will find some nice and useful gifts here, at the Food Network Store: http://www.foodnetworkstore.com/?ccaid=FNFNSHOPTABF

This is a nice selection of gifts under $30 (http://www.foodnetworkstore.com/c-4294919243-2355-Gifts-Under-30.aspx?Ns=2355), but my faves are:

http://www.foodnetworkstore.com/p-297540-4294919243-Gifts-Under-30_Rachael-Ray-Orange-Double-Decker-Expandable-Potlucker.aspx?Ns%3d2355

http://www.foodnetworkstore.com/p-296931-4294919243-Gifts-Under-30_Rachael-Ray-from-Furi-Chefs-Rocker-Knife.aspx?Ns%3d2355

From this page-- http://www.foodnetworkstore.com/c-4294919243-2355-Gifts-Under-30.aspx?Page=2&Ns=2355 the apple corer/peeler, SmartStick brushed chrome hand blender, and the giant cupcake carrier are my favorites.

Check out the other 2 pages also, but this is another gift I would recommend, especially if she loves to bake as well as cook: http://www.foodnetworkstore.com/p-217971-4294919243-Gifts-Under-30_Kuhn-Rikon-Cookie-and-Cupcake-Decorating-Set.aspx?Ns%3d2355

Another nice gift could be a subscription to any of the Food Network Magazines: http://www.foodnetworkstore.com/ProductList.aspx?Ntt=food+network+magazine&Ntx=mode%2Bmatchall&Nty=1&N=0&Ntk=All

I'm still researching gifts for your Principal, but I wanted to send these suggestions to you now.

Hi again, Steve.

This crystal globe paperweight would be a nice addition to your Principal's desk in school or at home:
http://www.giftsforprofessionals.com/item/globe-paperweight

You can search the assortment of other paperweights from this page, also, if you like.

How about a book on the history of Education in the 20th century:
http://www.amazon.com/Troubled-Crusade-American-Education-1945-1980/dp/0465087574/ref=pd_sim_b_32

or this one: http://www.amazon.com/Stirring-Head-Heart-Soul-Concept-Based/dp/1412925223/ref=pd_sim_b_49

If you don't want to go with a book to read, I think a nice gift for an educator/mom is a blank journal, or one that is more like a journal/date book/address book, that you can possibly have engraved with her name and the date. The store, "Things Remembered" has a nice selection of engraveable gifts: http://www.thingsremembered.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/TRproduct_10001_9951_629012_-1_3000_2998_4897___?occasionId=_1_Her|~|Business%20Office|~|~|~

You can also get a leather bound journal and have it engraved with her name.

A personalized picture frame is also a nice idea from a store like Things Remembered.

This is also an interesting way to journal, which she may appreciate: http://www.amazon.com/Thought-Me-thoughts-journaling-Birthday/dp/1432740660/ref=sr_1_29?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1293519903&sr=1-29

I hope you found my suggestions helpful! Smile

Warmest regards,
