Five Christmas Teacher Gift Ideas


I know around my house at Christmas time there is a lot of teacher gift giving.  Teacher's deal with our kiddos all year long and in my opinion have one of the hardest jobs beside being a mommy.  They deserve a little treat come Christmas time.  So I have found some of the best ideas for teacher gifts that I can think of.  Check it out!!



This is a super cute idea.  This is basically all of the ingredients to make cookies but in a jar.  On the tag instead of putting girlfriend cookies you could put favorite teacher cookies.  Check it out over at Loralee Lewis and she give a good idea on just how to make this one.    





This is perfect and is a must.  You can put this in a little basket or just give it to your teacher like it is.
This can be used as an exfoliate to remove leftover stuff from the wonderful crafts we all make and it only takes minutes to make.  Check it out over at Under The Table and Dreaming.  All you need for this is:

-Mason Jar
-Sugar
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-Lemon Juice





Who does not LOVE cocoa at Christmas time.  This is a really good recipe and you can put it in this cute jar to give to your teacher.  All you need for this is:

-Powdered milk
-unsweetened cocoa powder
-Sugar
-Salt
-Mini chocolate chips
-crushed peppermint candy
-Jar of some type


Check it out over at My Recipes.com

Here is what it looks like.  I love it.








This sounds super yummy and very easy to do as well.  Check out the full recipe at The Simple Dollar.  What you need for this is:

- Six apples
-water
-butter
-powdered fruit pectin
-Sugar
-Brown sugar
-Cinnamon
-Ground nutmeg





I think this is my favorite idea yet.  I got this idea at Bee In My Bonnet.  Go over there and check it out.  You can order these super cute apron's from her.  



And this is what is in the jar.



Too cute huh?

This is a great idea. I think homemade picture frames are always a nice gift for teachers. I used to get them a lot from my aunt. Should would create all different styles and design so my wife is trying to teach our kids to make them. However, I think these ideas are great gifts for anyone. I like to get people new technology gifts for Christmas. I guess you could call me a technology nerd but this sort of gift can always come in handy. Last year I got my brother the Spy Detector because it can help him track where his son is driving. He just got his license and I know here worries about him.
