Homemade Jam: I love to bake and can, so I love to give teachers a jar of homemade jam along with some scones, bread or biscuits . Attach a card saying, “Hope your year is super sweet!”, for a yummy yet frugal treat.

Mini Oreo Apple Pops – Check out these super-cute “apple pops” over at Skip to my Lou.
Edible Crayons: Here is a tutorial to make “crayons” from pretzels from Gourmet Mom on the Go. I bookmarked this one last year and never got a chance to make it.
