Coffee Cup CozyIf Christmas break is only a few days away, and you still haven't pulled together a present for your homeroom teacher, don't stress. Teacher appreciation gifts can be easy, quick, and fun. Give your favorite java-loving educator a reusable drink sleeve for her morning cup of coffee. Not only is this project a snap to make, but it's also a wonderful way to use up fabric scraps. If your favorite teacher is a bit on the scatterbrained side, give her the gift of organization by making her a holder for her Post-Its.

Christmas Treat JarIf there's one thing that every person loves during the holiday season, it's food. Once teachers walk through the door at the start of the school day, they're on their feet for hours at a time. Such a get-up-and-go profession would make anyone hungry. Fill a glass jar with raisins, peanuts, chocolate candies, and other delicious treats that will keep your teacher alert and energized. Worried about food allergies? No problem. You can give a gift card to a restaurant or coffee shop instead. For a personal touch, whip up a cute holder for the gift card.

Stenciled Christmas MugsThis Christmas, stretch your gift-giving creativity. Teachers don't live in the classroom (although they may feel that they do), so consider making gifts that they can use at home. Special soaps are a real holiday treat and candles can set the mood during the holiday season! Christmas decor is one of the most fun aspects of the holiday season and luckily it doesn't have to cost a lot to create your own homemade crafts.

Snowman Hand SanitizerNot sure if your teacher celebrates Christmas? You can still show your appreciation for her with a seasonal craft. For instance, teachers are not immune to the germs that their students carry in to school every day. A cute, snowman-inspired bottle of hand sanitizer proves that you've got your teacher's well-being at heart. It makes a great decoration for the desk, too.
