DIY Holiday Teacher Gift Idea Round Up

I have made a bunch of teacher gifts over the years. Here is a round up of some of my very favorites, just in case you’re looking to go the DIY route this year. There are many schools of thought regarding teacher gifts, depending on who you talk to or what blog you read.  You might see do’s and don’ts when it comes to teacher gifting.

As a former teacher, my two cents: teachers just like to feel appreciated! No gift is too small, no gift is even necessary. A picture from the kids, a hand-written note of thanks, a gift card or something you make – no matter what gesture, it’s appreciated.

That being said, there are some really fun (budget-friendly!) gifts that you can make yourself!
