I always make sure the Teacher recieves something homemade by my child. I makes it more special in my eyes that a child put their whole heart into making an extra special gift for them!

I send a short email survey near the beginning of the school year to the classroom teachers, then watch for sales/coupons for their favorite snacks & candle scents. Scored some great clearance chocolate at WG before Halloween candy went out & some Glade candle scents with all their great coupons this fall. My kids can pay themselves for things the teachers will actually use because we get each item less than $1!

I also make unique, personalized gifts. From a classroom picture pillow, to hall way passes with the teachers info -laminated, hot/cold compress made of jasmine rice, personalized notepads, and many other hand made things that teachers need. I always add a personal gift that is just for her. This way, she gets the best of both worlds!

As an educator myself, I truly enjoy handmade cards that the children make. It makes it really special when parents give all creativity to their children and allow them to create something that came from them. One year I recieved a photo of me and one of my students inside a frame that was decorated by my student. I still have it after 6 years!

I think really cute things can be made for teachers that doesn't cost much. I saw a Christmas gift idea on the internet of filling a whisk with hershey's kisses and putting "I whisk you a Merry Kissmas!" tag on it. You can buy the whisk at a Dollar Store and kisses don't cost much.

I love to put together gift baskets because I think they are such a fun gift... these can cost next to nothing by adding samples you receive throughout the year as well as free items you've picked up in the stores throughout the year... Of course.. you never want to forget a little chocolate to make the gift basket extra special.

I like for my daughter to make her teacher an ornament. This year I'm also gonna put together a "recipe book" for all of my homemade cleaners with a small bottle of Dr. Bronners Castile soap.

I got the teachers adorable slipper socks with a little travel size lotion and if you pack them together really cute that it is a budget friendly gift that is useful all in one!

i also subscribe to your emails and love them. You make it soo easy.

21 Kristi November 16, 2009 at 12:41 pm

I have my kids make their own gifts. These can include things such as decorating a card, picture frame or even a basket (the basket could be filled with the deals of the year). One of my boys decided to decorate a T-shirt with a picture of the clas on the back and one with the two of them on the front then he wrote messages or words that described her ALL over it! I still see her wearing it 10 years later!! I think if it's the child's idea and work it makes it more special.

During the holidays, we always bake a little extra and share with all of our school's staff, attached with a recipe!!! A great way to continue and pass on our family recipe traditions!!!

We sell pasta in fun shapes as a swim team fundraiser each year. They come in the shape of college logos, music notes, cats dogs, basketballs, all kinds of things. I buy the fundraiser pasta for teh teachers based on their interest. It's something they can actually use, that isn't another knick nack to sit on their desks!

I save the $5 gift cards I earn at Target for various purchases and distribute them to my fave teachers during the holidays and during teacher appreciation week!

31 Andrea November 16, 2009 at 2:06 pm

One of the best, inexpensive gifts I have received as a teacher are picture frames. You can never have enough of them!

I like to give paper. When you can get the dollar reams at Staples, the teachers always can use more paper.

39 Lea Ann November 16, 2009 at 6:16 pm

I like to give the teachers homemade fudge and a Target gift card.

40 Tracye November 16, 2009 at 7:33 pm

I like to bake Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls, and tie them up with a pretty bow and a card... and send them to school still warm from the oven.

I like giving hand-made cards and gifts. They are cheaper and more special in my opinion.

I think giving books for the classroom library is great.

45 Dawn November 16, 2009 at 11:30 pm

I give the teachers Tupperware containers that are filled with chocolates. I am usually able to pick up the containers for a buck or so when my consultant has parties that people don't do the cheap stuff with purchase. A couple of years ago, I was able to score the small round modular mates for a dollar a piece. The teachers are thrilled because it isn't another candle. :) and they can use it.
