I found some creative homemade teacher appreciation gifts to make from some of my favorite bloggers. Often, just a small thoughtful gesture of appreciation can make a world of difference to a teacher.

If you are not the crafty type, I can also tell you that a small gift card from Target, Walmart, Amazon.com, or an office supply store will also be appreciated. According to a recent study, teachers spent an average of $398 out of their own pocket on supplies for the classroom. I know first-hand that my daughter spends quite a bit more than that every year.
I am the daughter of a teacher and now the proud mother of a teacher and I know firsthand how challenging the days can be.
