Easy & Inexpensive Teacher Gift

You don't have to spend so much money to appreciate your children's teachers.  There are a lot of ways and ideas that you can find everywhere and today I will just give you one.  

I whip up a last minute teacher gift for my kids the night before their last day before christmas break.

The kids and I went to dollar store to pick up our supplies.  We wanted some things that the teacher will definitely use in school and not just for decoration or not something that might go straight to the trash.
So what we have is a small tin bucket, metallic gel marker, pens, markers, pencil crayons & notepads.

I unwrap all the markers & pens from its original packaging then taped & tie them around with a pretty ribbon before putting them to the tin bucket.
For the snowman label, I just cut 1 small circle & 1 big circle black craft paper.  Overlap the small over the big circle a little bit then glue them together.  I used the white ink marker to write the message, the same marker that I used with my DIY Christmas Cones.
Arrange everything in the tin bucket and we have this easy & inexpensive teacher gift!
What do you say?  Do you buy something boxed for your children's teacher or you're like me that tries to make it a little bit personal yet frugal?

ps:  This will be my last post for the week since I will be moving away from blogging & working to spend some much anticipated time with my kids & The Mr.  ☺

Merry Christmas!!  Until then...
