I am not a crafty person at all, so most of my gifts are not homemade, unless it’s food. I’m a pretty good baker. :)
I always struggle with teacher gifts, but my usual go-to gift is supplies of some sort in a fun or practical container, which I decorate and wrap up nicely. Money is tight for teachers these days—at least in our district, and I assume in most other parts of the country—so I’m sure extra supplies are always appreciated.
Before Christmas, I was browsing in Michael’s and found some dollar bin items that were actually on clearance. Score! I think I paid around $5 for the entire gift, including wrapping. I got some black and white monogrammed pencils and magnets and a fun coffee cup to put them in.
I wrapped it up in cellophane and tied a pretty bow around it.
And there you have it—an easy, attractive, and most importantly, inexpensive gift.
