Class Act

Teacher Gifts for $10 or Less

bag it up!

The

school year’s nearly over, and Junior’s teacher deserves more than a

Red Delicious. Say thank you with an intelligent (but inexpensive) gift.

Charmed, We’re Sure

She’ll remember his sweet disposition and knack for math with a Bag of School.

The $10 collection of pewter charms (apple, book, pencil, ruler, dunce

cap) will forever remind her of your little scholar (Virtu, 2034 North

Damen Avenue, at McLean Avenue; 773-235-3790).Map It

Recess Success

For a tenspot, Fringe Studio’s crystal magnetsbring a little of the outside in. They’re decoupaged with images of

hummingbirds, owls, and butterflies (Florodora, 330 South Dearborn

Street, between Jackson Boulevard and Van Buren Street; 312-212-8860).Map It

Exception to the Rule

Go for good measure with Rulers of the World.

The nerdy-chic wooden rulers spotlight achievers in art, science,

sports, and more on one side and inch marks on the other — and they’re

just two bucks a pop (Greer, 1657 North Wells Street, between Eugenie

Street and North Avenue; 312-337-8000).Map It

With this lot, he’ll be every teacher’s pet.

This Week in Chicago!
