Garage workout

I had a funny conversation with my Mom a few weeks ago. We were chatting on facebook and I told her I had to get off the computer and go do my garage workout, which is where I have to go if Jack and Jason are asleep cause then I can jump and they won't hear me.  It was 10:00 at night and I caught the workout bug.  She asked me what I could possibly do in the garage for a workout, and here is my response, all I had was 10 pound free weights, a yoga mat and a chair, you really don't need fancy equipment, and this workout took me about an hour and 20 minutes.  When I blast dance music in my ears sometimes I have to force myself to end the workout cause I'm just feeling the music. This is my response to my Mom: "You wanted to know what I do in the garage, well I ended up going in the storage room - too hot in garage. Blast dance music on ipod: do 20 minutes of cardio: cheesy 80's dancing, running in place, kickboxing, criss cross kicks, jumping jacks, kick butt kicks, kick forward/jump run, kick backs, pretend jump rope, mountain climbers, tire jumps, sumo wrestler, burpies, suicide drills, football runs. That is just the cardio then I do 10 different things with free weights, I do tri-cep dips with a chair, lunges, squats, side kicks, leg lifts, plie kicks, 10 different ab exercises , different leg exercises on my knees, then a little more cardio then my cool down. What I did tonight burned 760 calories.

HELP, teacher gift ideas for a man

So for the past three years Jack has had female, teachers, teaching assistants and speech therapist. Now he has a male Kindergarten teacher, and I am so used to coming up with cute ideas for the woman.  I have a few that could work for both male and female.  The smores gift basket, the movie gift basket, the coffee set. but I am kind of at a loss for anything else. I like to give lots of gifts throughout the year, cause lets face it they have my child for about 37 hours a week they deserve presents.  His new teacher drives over an hour every day to get to his job.  I always like to give a pretty big gift at Christmas time. Here is my idea tell me what you think:
A personalized tote box or small storage bin with kind of like a car emergency kit in it
Here are things I would give him if you think this is a good idea, otherwise I am at a loss
Tide to go pen - for spilling things on clothes - we have all spilled coffee on the way to work, right
lint roller
gas card
travel coffee mug
flash light or maybe a flash light key chain
snacks (cause his only meal all day is cafeteria food)
ice scraper

I can't think of anything else, ideas Please, need feedback

So, I don't have a pinterest account, but I like to go on there and look at stuff and get ideas.  I have a few things that I think are adorable and only know too crafty people in my life, so Mom and Cass if you see this post, these items are adorable and I love them. The first is these cute little booty socks. Love them, looks so cozy. 
This pumpkin wreath is super cute, I love it.  Mom I hope you read this, cause this would make a great gift, you know I love your hand made gifts.  

This little snowman is adorable and would go great with my Snowman Christmas decorations.
I love this ring, I know this can't be made, but this is my wish list so it is on here. LOL
Also, I love this outfit, especially the necklace and purse.
