I buy christmas coffee mugs the day after christmas. Then the next year I fill them up with candy bought with coupons and wrap them. Makes a great present when you have several teachers to buy for.

I love Subway!
My favorite gift idea for teachers: Buy a nice mug. Pick out a stainless spoon (I have some from old sets). Dip the spoon in melted chocolate to coat well (bowl end only). Wrap the end of the spoon in pretty colored cellophane and secure with a ribbon. Put it handle down in the mug. Put in a baggie of marshmallows and a package of hot cocoa mix. Very pretty and festive!

8 Alan November 15, 2009 at 7:24 pm

I watch the holiday sales. Now there is a deal from Seehere to get a free photo pic bulb. Great deal for any gift!

Back when I used to have only one (or two or three) teacher(s), I would buy them either a candle set or a sort of show piece that I reminded me of them. Giving gifts to teachers was quite fun!

10 Victoria November 15, 2009 at 7:29 pm

I like your site. Thank you so much!

11 Laura November 15, 2009 at 7:29 pm

As a teacher, we appreciate practical gifts that we can use. Think about school supplies (dry erase markers, post its, etc.) Some of my favorite gifts are also gift cert. for a pedicure, to the book store and a hand drawn note from a kids is priceless!

We get TONS of mugs, ornaments and other christmas stuff that jsut piles up.

I've subscribed to your rss feed with google reader. Your coupons and articles for Target are very helpful. If I win I know already which school I'll link the card to.

Our Daisy Girl Scouts sells Nuts and Candy this time of year ( some in a fun Snowman Tin)
By buying these for teachers, bus driver, mailman, ect I not only help raise money for out Troops crafts, my daughter earns a new badge and I do not have to find a parking place at the mall LOL

16 Teresa November 15, 2009 at 7:56 pm

I gave (pending on what grade my daughter was in) gifts of kleenex, handwash without water, sanitizing wipes, some packs of construction paper, glue, notebook paper, etc... since I got most of those things either with coupons or end of season and always, always gave a gift card to the teachers favorite place wheather (sp) it be a coffee, doughnut or eating place to let them know how much they were appreciated. mLove your blogs and what there is to get on sale and where the coupons are. Thank you

The girls and I make white chocolate covered popcorn & put in a cute box w/ a Starbucks gift certificate.

18 Filippa November 15, 2009 at 8:08 pm

We love to take photos of the class throughout the year and present it to the teacher at the end of the year. It's always a hit!

19 Lisa November 15, 2009 at 8:17 pm

My favorite teacher gifts to receive were always gift cards! I also second the "useful" gifts...I love fun post-its, magnets, etc...

22 Sandy November 15, 2009 at 8:31 pm

One of my favorite gifts for teachers were gift cards to a Bookstore chain such as WaldenBooks or Barnes and Noble. That way the teacher could either find a good book to relax with or possibly find some read aloud she would like to use with her class.

23 Becky November 15, 2009 at 8:33 pm

I usually buy some Bath and Body Works items when they are super cheap. I stock up and use some for myself and give the others away to my son's daycare teachers for Christmas.

24 Melissa S November 15, 2009 at 8:33 pm

ususally there is money taken up for a group gift, but i also like to give something like bread/jam - cookies - something to eat!

25 Melissa S November 15, 2009 at 8:33 pm

26 Kim November 15, 2009 at 8:44 pm

I've done movie gift bags with 2 sodas, microwave popcorn, candy and a $5 movie rental gift card.
Glade candles will also be a gift for lots of folks this year.

27 Amy Chown November 15, 2009 at 8:46 pm

I sometimes buy a gift card to a local place to eat... such as Tropical Smoothie. A $5.00 to $10.00 gift card is enough for someone to eat out for lunch or pick up a smoothie or two.

28 Cathy November 15, 2009 at 8:47 pm

All teachers love gift cards! They have way too many mugs... you should see my brothers kitchen!

29 Heather November 15, 2009 at 8:48 pm

the $.50 sparkling cider that is on sale this seek at Walgreens with a cute note saying "hope your Christmas is "sparkling" and bright"

Considering how everyone is so worried about getting sick this year, a great gift for a teacher is a big pump of anti-bacterial soap from Sam's club! Sounds kind of corny but a lot of teachers have to buy it themselves if they want it in their classroom!

Another great gift is to take the ONW coupons and purchase the awesome scarves! They have so many colors to choose from and with the coupons they are a good deal!

Subway is my FAV! I would love to win this GC!

Thank you for everything you do :) You rock!

32 Maria November 15, 2009 at 8:59 pm

I love gift certificates to Office Max or Target. Even $20 can go a long way!!

33 Christi November 15, 2009 at 9:03 pm

With all of the incredible manufacturer and store coupons for Glade, my children's teachers will be receiving candles!

34 Danielle November 15, 2009 at 9:05 pm

I am making bracelets with an apple charm this year for my daughter's teacher and the teacher's helper...they are super easy to make and only cost around $5 to make!

36 laurie November 15, 2009 at 9:07 pm

haven't done the teacher gifts yet- baby is 2, but a friend of mine did gift cards to places like subway or staples, which i thought was so thoughtful and practical (i am BIG on practical gifts, no nick nacs (sp?) here)

I am a teacher, and some of my favorite gifts to receive are children's books for my classroom library! New or gently used, I can't get enough! :)

42 Shawna November 15, 2009 at 9:31 pm

I love finding great deals on candles for teachers (most recently the glade holiday scents). . .with a cute little xmas bag and maybe some photos, and a cheap candy treat, you can have a great gift for under $5!! ;)

I say a gift card is budget friendly and time friendly. My MIL is a teacher and she gets so many knick-knack items. She hates throwing them away, but at the same time she doesn't use them. Waste of money and waste of space.

I get bath and body works antibacterial hand soap, hand sanitizer or lotion with the $10 off $30 couponsand and pair that with a sale then wrap them in cellophane with a fancy bow. The teachers love them this time of year, especially this year with all of the virus' going around.

50 Amy November 15, 2009 at 9:49 pm

I love putting together gift basket's of stuff I've gotten throughout the year with my couponing!!!
