I always wait to the last minute and realized yesterday that today was my son's last day of preschool and I didn't have anything ready for teacher gifts. My son has three teachers in his classroom and being the frugal girl that I am I always try to come up with something nice, but inexpensive. Last year I made these really simple coffee and tea pouches for teacher appreciation week. One nice thing about these gifts is that they are consumables so my son's teachers aren't getting things that will add clutter to their lives.
With one day to prepare, I got my bread machine out and made homemade bread for each teacher. It took several hours to make three loaves, but since the bread machine did most of the work, it wasn't too difficult. I even programmed the bread machine to start early this morning before anyone was awake.
I packaged the loaves in plastic wrap and curling ribbon and attached hand written notes. One of the loaves was still warm so I placed it in a brown paper lunch bag inside of a gift bag.
What are your frugal homemade teacher gift ideas?
