It's that time of year when everyone asks that one dreaded question: "What do you want for Christmas?"
Honestly, I think it is pretty tough to come up with a Christmas wishlist as an adult. I either feel like I'm being selfish in asking or wasting money on things that I could really do without in order to avoid asking for things I can actually use at work.
1. Mary's Poppin's magic bag for travel therapy. I'm pretty sure it's probably indestructible in addition to all that space.
|Just imagine the kind of responses you could get from students with all the crazy things you could pull out.|
3. A personal secretary to keep up with all of the meetings we go to. However, a cute planner will do in a pinch.
In all seriousness, I would suggest giving your loved one an item that they are hesitant to splurge on. Some of my favorite items are: a personal laminator with additional laminating pouches; the Expanding Expression Tool; the Total Teddy Talker Package; J. Moncure's entire A-Z book series (yes, they are older but I haven't found anything that compares); and a TeachersPayTeachers gift card. Puppets, books, and games are always appreciated too. If you have a crafty SLP who likes making her/his own materials, you might want to donate several packs of construction paper and glue sticks to the cause.
