A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post with some ideas for frugal teacher’s gifts. Yesterday was my 5 year old’s last day of school, so I thought I would show you what I ultimately decided to do.
I purchased a potted begonia from a local nursery for $4.25 each. They gave me a free pick to place into the pot. Then, I created a bookmark (using Shabby Princess’ FREE Vintage Florals kit) for each of his 3 teachers that stated, “Thanks for helping me Grow” with a picture of him on it. I also created a card and wrote a personal note to each teacher (with my son’s signature).
I thought they turned out really cute, and I probably spent about $15 total for all three gifts.
