5 Holiday Teacher Gifts for Under $5

I have three kids and a total of 6 teachers to buy for at Christmastime.  While I very much appreciate teachers, I can only afford so much.  After searching Pinterest and talking to some teacher friends, I came up with a list of 5 practical gifts every teacher could use.  Did I mention they all cost $5 or less?  Cha-ching!

1. Message Board Picture Frame –

      • Eraser Fabric – cut a piece of scrap fabric, or buy a $1 pair of kids holiday socks (Target $1 bin).  One pair of socks = 2 erasers.

5. WaWa gift card –

(If you don’t live in the Northeast, you might have no idea what “WaWa” is, and I’m sorry you don’t have the pleasure of knowing the joy of a local WaWa.)  

Start a “Classroom Collection Gift”.  If there are 25 kids in the class and everyone donates $5, thats a $125 giftcard.  I think that’s a pretty nice classroom gift.  My teacher friends have said it’s great because it can be used for food, coffee or gas.  Win win!

If anyone else has $5 gift ideas, please share!!!  Thanks for reading 🙂
