4.  Elf Mason Jar

No teacher will turn down candy for the holidays, because the sugar and caffeine is probably what keeps them going the entire day! Instead of tossing them a wrapped bag of M & M’s, you can create an adorable jar that looks like an elf, and fill with green candy! All you need is the jar, some buttons, a little felt and candy. This is such a creative gift that any teacher would love.

5. Wrapping Paper

If there’s one thing everyone needs during the holidays, it’s wrapping paper! I love getting new paper every year, because you can never have enough variety. Teachers don’t want junk for the holidays, and even though your intentions of getting them a festive desk chotckie may have been good, they probably have years and years worth of that stuff already. You can buy quality wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby (its ALWAYS 50% off!) and tape at the dollar store. Tie together with a cute tag and you have a gift that won’t go to waste!

6. Red Box Movie, Popcorn & Drink

These days, going to the movie is no cheap affair, and most of us would rather watch in the comfort of our own home (and elastic waisted pajama pants) anyways. Red Box movies are the cheapest way to rent a movie, coming in at just $1! You can purchase codes on the Red Box website and pair with a small bottle of soda and a popcorn bag. You teacher will love the creativity, and movie rentals are never a waste!
