Does anyone have any great ideas for teachers gifts that are inexpensive?

I have 4 teachers to buy for this year. I want to give them something nice, but my money is really tight this year. I hear don't give lotions, candles, or anything food (unless it's a gift certificate) cause they get plenty.

Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance for your help!

  • A hand written thank you note from your child (you can put it in a frame, if you wish).

    A gift certificate to a "teacher store" or office supply store or bookstore.

  • I usually bake lots of things and then just make up a Tupperware container full of it. Yes I spend a little $$ ON Tupperware but the container they will use OVER and OVER again and FOREVER!!

  • Bake cookies and put them in a nice tin. The dollar store always has nice tins.
