After all, they spend more of my children’s waking hours in their presence than I do!
I love finding meaningful gifts that reflect their personalities and tastes, but with 3 children the costs quickly add up.
This year I’m challenging myself to find great gifts for my children’s teachers for under $10. I’ve tried to focus on personalized, unique gifts that are still budget-friendly.
Here’s what I’ve found so far!
