If you're still looking for a gift for your child's preschool teacher, moms in the CafeMom Newcomer's Club have some great gift ideas that won't break the bank.


My daughter and I are going to Michael's tomorrow to buy some ornaments to paint (they're only 50 cents to a dollar each).  She'll make each of her teachers one, and we're baking cookies. — Maries_Mom23

My kid's teachers are getting homemade Pumpkin bread and homemade fudge.  Last year, I got a really cool jar and filled it with hand-dipped Pretzels that I made.  My son's teacher loved it! I think teachers really like personal stuff that your child makes.  My mom was a teacher for over 30 years and she kept all the things that were original and personal. — cheer4nan2

My son has one teacher and two aides in his classroom. I am getting them each a Starbucks gift card with $5 to $10, depending on how our finances are looking. Not much, but it will get them a nice cup of coffee. — MrsTWalsh

I got my son's preschool teacher a hot chocolate set at Target for $6. It's a mug and two different types of hot chocolate. It's adorable. — ZacharyCainsMom

The parents at our preschool pool their money ($5 to $10 each) and give a gift card to Barnes & Noble. The teachers end up with a nice sized gift card. — cypris420

I can tell you as a teacher, teaching your children is the best gift of all. Even something as simple as a "Thank You" is all we need! The gifts the children make or gifts that you make as a family are super special! — julierae
