Somehow I made time for classmate/teacher gifts for christmas this year. Teacher gifts were tricky because I have 2 in school now (well one in school and one in MDO) and I'm on a budget. We recently got a sparkling new Sam's Club and I found a box of 10 cute metal ornaments with 3 truffles inside for $15. Less than $2 for a gift? Yes please!! For their main teachers (3), I also splurged and got $10 Starbucks gift cards.
For Maddie's kindergarten class, I bought 2 boxes of cherry candy canes ($.98 per box) and 2 dozen 10-color shuttle pens ($12 per dozen w/ tax and shipping). Attached a cute "have a colorful christmas tag" and voila!
For Maren's class (2 & 3 year olds), I wasn't quite as crafty. They got Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers ($1 per box) with an Avery address label gift tag.
I'm pretty proud of my frugal self!
