Bus Driver Gifts

Personalized Bus Driver Card from Etsy Shop Serendipitees

As I waved goodbye this morning to our 5 year old I stopped to think how grateful I was for his humble and patient bus driver.  One of the neighbors started to wonder what to get him for Christmas and I realized I hadn't even thought about it.

So, of course, I went online and started to peek around at the various gifts and related posts and discovered a couple of things you should know:

1)  Many drivers have too many "Bus Driver" themed gifts and although they are appreciated, they have grown somewhat tired of them and would really appreciate something else.  However, I have posted a themed gift here because I felt it was hilarious and maybe you have a new bus driver this year...or just want to give your old one a good laugh.

2)  After reading a post here and there, Bus Drivers themselves always find gift cards a lovely show of appreciation.  Gift Cards to fast food places was also recommended as they are always on the go and usually get their lunches from such places.

3)  A personalized card is always welcome with homemade treats.  You could have your child make the card or purchase  as unique find on Etsy.

I like all three ideas, and as the same bus driver comes once at 6:45am for our high school-ers, and then at 7:45 for our Kindergartner, I almost feel like I should do all 3!

Hope these ideas help.
