Homemade Christmas Teacher Appreciation Gift

I don’t know about you but for me this holiday season has moved faster than ever.  I can’t seem to keep up.  I always like to give my children’s teachers a small token of our appreciation at Christmas.  I had planned for it but somehow the night to get everything ready was upon me without me realizing.  I had planned and purchased a few things to include so all that I needed to whip up were our homemade items.

Each teacher received a gift bag with a loaf of homemade bread, potholders, and a homemade Christmas card.  I don’t go overboard on teacher gifts but like to make sure they know we are thinking of them over the holidays.  I also make sure to include something handmade by the kids as most teachers I’ve known say they enjoy those items the most.

Homemade Christmas Cards

I took to Pinterest and found a few different options for handprint and footprint Christmas cards.  Buddy and Boo Boo each picked their own design.

Buddy choose the footprint Christmas tree:

Here is his completed card:

Homemade Bread

I recently put a ton of bananas that were ripe into the freezer so I was planning on making banana bread for the teachers.  The morning of the day I was planning to make the bread a recipe for Triple Chocolate Banana Bread appeared on my Facebook newsfeed – I took that as a sign.  You can find the recipe here:

Do you do gifts for your children’s teachers?  Anything specific each year or does it vary?  Let me know – I’m always looking for new ideas!
