This is a neat idea. Not only do you show appreciation, but you do not have to break the bank to accomplish it. My kids so to a relatively small school and the staff of teachers and their assistants do not top 20. This would be a great gift during teacher appreciation week.

That time of the year again. Any teacher would appreciate this cute thank you gift idea any time of the year. As a former teacher it was always nice to be appreciated and who does not like chocolate. The sentiment is sweet and the jar can be smaller or larger. Teachers always share their stash.

This is a very cute idea! As a teacher myself, I think this will be "well" recexived!

This is such a funny and unique teacher's gift! It's a great way to acknowledge the stress that comes with being a teacher while saying thank you for their hard work. Plus, who doesn't love chocolate?!
