10 Fabulous Homemade Gifts For Teachers and School Staff!

Dare To Share!

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!

$250 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway

I have always loved writing, telling stories, venting about life, love, and children…blogging has given me such an amazing outlet!

It has also been a freaking BIYATCH at times! Let me tell you, blogging is no picnic. There are ups, there are LOTS of downs, there are moments of triumph and feelings of complete failure. I have had days where I am so proud of myself for completing goals, getting published, having great feedback, etc.

And there have been plenty of other days, weeks even, where I have been so close to giving up, to throwing in the towel because putting in hours and hours of work each day for NOTHING was just too hard.$250 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway

Yet here, I am, a full year later, still plugging away, still finding enjoyment in posting tidbits and rants, advice and stories. While I am nowhere near where I had hoped to be at this point, I am seeing gains here and there, I am finding solace in increased publication and monetary opportunities. What more can I ask for?

That being said, here is a list of my top 3 posts for my first year blogging!
