Teachers are special people in our lives and deserve special recognition. They spend hours every day with our children and are responsible for helping guide them through their lives. While I believe that parents are the number one in children’s lives it doesn’t hurt to thank the person who spends numerous hours with our children every week. However, this cost can add up quickly so I came up with 12 ideas that won’t cost more than $2 each. Not only are these gifts great for teachers but you can use them as hostess gifts too 🙂
Of course gift cards are nice but they are more expensive and hard to remember the individual who gave it to you ten years later unlike these special homemade teacher gifts.
These frugal ideas will help bring a smile to a teachers face. Don’t forget the music teacher, physical education teacher, computer teacher etc. Often the “specials” teachers get over looked. Remember the secretary who can make your live a tad easier when you are running late or trying to get a note to your child 🙂
