When we write our Christmas gift list, it’s nice to remember our Day Care, Pre-Prep and School Teachers and any other members of the village helping to raise our kids this year!
It’s a lovely gesture to give a little thank-you to the people who have taught, played with and endured our children this past year. But it does not mean you have to spend a fortune or sell a kidney to afford it by any means – there’s so much available for under $20….but then if you want to spend more, there’s lots available too! Here’s 50 gifts to suit all budgets!
Inexpensive Gifts for Teachers You Can Make at Home:
A beautiful home made meal or nibbles is always appreciated – plus they are low cost and make for a really thoughtful gift. Here are some ideas on what you can make for the teachers in your childs’ life:
Nuts and Bolts Crunchy Snack Mix
This delicious savoury mix can be made in bulk in the slow cooker – grab some sealable glass jars, add a ribbon – and there is the perfect gifts!
Christmas Lolly Sleighs
These Christmas Lolly Sleighs are a FANTASTIC Christmas gift – not just for teachers, but for anyone! You will need a good glue gun, some ribbon and a bit of patience.
These are the real old-style Rum Balls – my Grandma’s recipe made on Weetbix. They are so damn good! Best of all – you can make Rum Balls up to two months in advance – and you can either keep them in the fridge (they mature nicely) or even freeze them!
These are just adorable, and they freeze well too – so you can make a load of these and pop them in the freezer for when you need them!
This one is very visually gorgeous! You can grab Mason jars from the cheap shops that have lids – which makes them easily transportable.
Make a Mason Jar Terrarium
Terrariums are alive and beautiful and perfect to sit on the teacher’s desk. They are really easy to make too!
Shortbread in a Jar
We have lots of totally scrumptious shortbread recipes to try. Serve in a Mason Jar with a lid, some gingham and a ribbon!
