I usually give movie tickets or candy and coffee and then something my son made like an ornament or just a card with something he wrote himself.

We can't really afford something like movie tickets for 4 teachers lol...I just didn't know if anyone had homemade ideas or cheap ideas that are "valuable"

Last year I gave a christmas card along with a dunkin donut gift card. Most likely will do the same this year.

Not sure about my younger son. He's starting preschool at the school district on Monday. He will have a teacher with a few aides. So prolly will do something for the classroom or something.

Grab some sharpies and a porcelain dollar store mug. Have kid write or draw on it, and bake it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Instant sentimental keepsake.

Hmmm. Probably could do the same with a porcelain short vase and make a pencil holder.

We bake cookies every year and ger creative with how we give them. This year, I will have Kai decorate a terra cotta pot. The teacher can use the pot for a plant or a pen/pencil holder.

Our school doesn't allow home baked goods :( I am not sure the exact reason, although I could see why. I don't know if an incident happened or what. I like the pot ideas.
