I have received quite a few people who are looking for budget minded Christmas gifts for teachers. I know that teachers prefer to receive items like gift cards, but many of you are working on a very limited or no budget. Some of you only saved catalinas, ECB or UPR – perhaps even your stockpile.
There was a great suggestion on Facebook I wanted to share. I think this is a GREAT idea if you don’t have the money to buy a gift. Nicole said that many teachers have to buy supplies for their classrooms. I quickly made this basket from items in my stockpile. Items you might want to include:
- Hand Sanitizer
- Post It Notes
- Lysol Wipes
- Hand Soap
- Glue Sticks
You can use a basket or a tote.
These were all items I had on hand. If you can afford it, perhaps a $5.00 gift card to a coffee shop or a book store. This may not be the perfect gift, but it something they can use – and you can afford.
Reader Beth suggested that if you can not afford a gift, perhaps a letter of appreciation. You could put it on cute Christmas stationary.
There are a ton of great ideas here on Facebook – check out over 75 suggestions.
Do you have any gift ideas?
