Inexpensive Gift Ideas for Your Child's Teachers

The follow is a post from contributing writer Tiffany Manley.

At first glance the thought of a teacher’s gift doesn’t seem very applicable to a homeschooler. You are the teacher, after all.

When you think about it, though, there are plenty of people involved in your child’s life, and it would be completely appropriate for your child to give a gift.  If your child is involved in co-op, sports, lessons, or any other activity that involves someone else teaching them, they can definitely give a gift of appreciation.  It would definitely be appreciated by the teacher.

Gifting others teaches so many valuable things such as thinking of others, how to shop economically, getting to know a person, and more.

Leave a lasting impression on them: it’s better to give than to receive.
