Educators enrich the lives of the teeming masses year after year for peanut wages. Face it: If you're a student, they're a part of your life. Letting them know that you consider them human might make surviving the school year easier (for both of you). What better way than a gift? Consider nongender-specific, locally made novelties like chocolate tamales, candles, or soaps. Picture frames, tasty teas, and writing journals are always appreciated. Or how about origami for art teachers, kazoos for bandleaders, or birding books for biology buffs? You can never go wrong with a "Keep Austin Weird" sticker or ballcap. (The above array was crafted at Whole Earth Provision; items range in price, $1-20.)
