It seems like every time the holidays roll around I find myself asking, “What should I buy for my kid’s teacher this year?” If you are like me and almost break out in hives trying to think up the most festive and fun gift than you might find this post helpful. I have created a list of the best DIY teacher gifts for the holidays.
I spent some time thinking if I was a teacher what would I want for the holidays? Would I want candy, an item to display in my room, etc? That is when I decided to create a list of items I would love if I was a teacher. Also, let me just add teachers don’t expect gifts, it is just a thoughtful way to show your appreciation for the time and hard work they put into your child’s education!
