Teacher Gift Ideas Under $20

As a former teacher I’ve seen my share of gifts from students ranging from “what the heck” to “this is amazing!” I know it’s not mandatory to gift anything to your child’s teacher but it’s a really nice gesture given they are with your kids for a big part of the day. Also, teachers are basically angels sent from heaven because they have the toughest job and we all need to appreciate them more!
