Homemade Teacher Gift List

My previous post has a list of gifts for teachers you can order online or buy at a store. If you want a more personalized touch and/or gifts on a budget then this post if for you. It may only be February but the end of the year will be here before you know it. Teacher Appreciation Week will be here soon too (May 6 - May 10).

***After looking at my gift list I realize purchasing items are required but with smart shopping (coupons, dollar store...) you can get a lot for your buck with these gift ideas. 

1. Teacher Survival Kit

This is such a great idea especially if you know the teacher well you can really fill it to suit their needs. If not here are some ideas.

- Band-aids
- Advil
- Cough Drops
- Hand Sanitizer
- Hand Lotion
- Tide Stain Remover
- Tic Tacs
- Candy/Chocolate
- Lip Balm

Once you have your items find a cute basket/bucket to put it all in!

2. Water Bottle

Find a cute water bottle and fill it with instant coffee packets or flavored water packets. I swear by the MIO flavored water. It's so delicious and it comes out as a syrup not powder. You can personalize any clear water bottle or coffee tumbler with something as simple as a sharpie. 

3. Beach Bag

A beach bag is a great gift for a teacher at the end of the school year. It's a nice send off into summer. I did this for my co-op as my thank you gift to her.
