Found some great Reed Diffusers at Kohls...they were $5 each, and then during power hour they were an additional %20 off, and my mom had a coupon for an additional %30- Great deal, and they were available in Christmas scents/colors!

I like to give little candles - something that they can relax with.

I bought the $20 ChickFilA gift card to get the free calendar - so those will be gifts for the teachers.

9 Meg November 15, 2009 at 10:33 pm

One of my favorite budget-friendly gifts for teachers are buying the pretty hot drink mugs (the tall ones up on a pedestal) in groups of 2 or 4 and dividing them into individual mugs - putting each into a pretty "dressed up" basket with yummy hot drink mixes: herb teas, hot chocolate, apple cider etc. Sometimes, I'll add candy canes or a small bag of red hots that can be used as stirrers or mix-ins.

Thanks for the opportunity!

10 Vanessa M. November 15, 2009 at 10:52 pm

Last year I gave the teachers a set of votive candles.

11 Dana November 15, 2009 at 10:53 pm

I give teachers:
Gift card to blockbuster, popcorn, king size candy, & red vines all wrap up with a big bow, or in a cute tin.

12 Michelle November 15, 2009 at 10:57 pm

My son's teachers (3 women) are getting Glade candle holders with refills, plus Almay mascara, and Sally Hansen nail polish! I've been saving freebies for a few months to make sure I wouldn't spend money at Christmas time!

My family ADORES Subway.

Entry #2....leaving a comment....

I love to give teachers something 'homemade' from my child, whether it be cookies that they made, chocolate covered pretzel sticks, or an ornament for their tree... also a small amount gift card (usually $5 to Starbucks or Mc Donalds)...

I bought the cheap Secret Fine Fragrance deodorant/body mist sets at Target to give to my son's female teachers. They're young, so they'll appreciate the very sexy fragrance!

I give the teachers a small denominations gift card. It's not very personal, but I know it's something they'll use.

21 Katie November 16, 2009 at 12:26 am

I love to scrapboook, so the teachers get a homemade card, and homemade cookies because I also love to bake. This year, they might just get one of the free things I got at Walgreens. Gotta love free!

22 Rejoice In Saving November 16, 2009 at 12:35 am

I love giving scented candles as you can often get them pretty inexpensively.

23 sally November 16, 2009 at 2:13 am

Candles are always a great inexpensive gift.

I like to make gift baskets for teachers, usually with a theme. Last year was "movie night" with microwaveable popcorn, a blockbuster gift card, boxed movie candy, and a tub to put popcorn in. It was a big hit!

I love to give gift certificates to our restaurant-so ,not only do the teachers get to have a night out but, my sons also wait on them when they are there so they actually get to spend some time getting to know my kids better.We would love to win the card.My two teenage sons and I love subway-and being on a diabetic diet their sandwiches allow me to eat out without messing up my diet.

homemade blackberry jam – yum!

Love your blog and receiving your emails everyday for more ways to save. I have to say since i've joined this group i've saved loads of money and in this economy we all could use a little extra cash in our pockets. Thanks for breaking everything down and teaching us how to be better savers! I am already a registered user so this comment is for the subway gift card giveaway which would help so much during this time while we are struggling with my husband out of work. Thanks for your help and insperation.

My daughter loves making cookies and the little sleighs made out of candy and putting them in a cute tin or box (a lot of nice ones available at the dollar stores) and dressing them up with ribbons. We already make a TON of cookies, so it's not much extra at all!

44 Marie R November 16, 2009 at 8:48 am

Something homemade from kids would be nice or a coffee mug filled with pens.

45 DAWN November 16, 2009 at 8:59 am

I like to give Bath & Body items.

46 Kelli November 16, 2009 at 9:18 am

I've not had to deal with this yet, but I think that something personal from the student is the best way to go. Either a letter or drawing or poem that tells a memory that kid has had. Right now, I give my day care provider a box of homemade cookies/candies.

47 Karen November 16, 2009 at 9:34 am

a $5 gift card is much appreciated and easily indulgence!

When my boys were in high school - 3 at one time - and had a different teacher for each subject, plus coaches, plus all the great people in the office, I used to bake 5-6 batches of brownies, cut them into squares, and have the boys deliver the boxes to the faculty lounge saying Merry Christmas from
name, graduation year for all 3 boys. Kept that up till the last one graduated, and kept including all 3 boys on it to remind them of the impact they had on our family and how grateful we were to them.
