This week we are featuring frugal & fun teacher gift ideas! Don’t forget to check out the Crayon Wreath & Crayon Monogram ideas,too!

Sweet Treats:

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.

Cupcake: In the Fred Meyer rewards this month, there is a coupon for $3 off a bakery item. You could use this coupon to get a fancy cupcake to present to the teacher on the first day of school.

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.  I am hoping to do it this year for my son’s PreK class. You’ll even find free crayon printable labels – you just need to print them on the colored paper!


  1. Thanks for your ideas, they are so fun! As a teacher myself, I love getting gifts, but I don’t eat anything that is home made from students for my own safety. So before parents make home made goods they might want to consider that the teacher might just throw it away like my co-workers and I do.
