Our children’s teachers are not just educators. They are a part of our kids’ daily lives and a part of their hearts.  In fact, for many people, their kids see more of their teacher on any given day than they do their parents! For all their hard work, their patience, their devotion and personal and monetary contributions, teachers deserve recognition and appreciation from all of us. However, The holidays can be a difficult time of year for many parents. For us, with 4 kids in school and an already tight budget, it’s hard to find an appropriately appreciative gift that also fits our monetary constraints. Therefore, we often make gifts for our teachers. Here is a list of the best homemade gifts for teachers and school staff!

Book Page Apple

I love this idea from HymnsAndVerses.com. If you can find out the favorite book of your childs’ teacher you can order it used for only a few dollars. Or you can simply go the thrift store and pick up a book for a dollar or two! Bam! You spent less than $5 for a gift that shows a love for reading and for the teacher who taught you how!
