I am always looking for something clever but useful to give teachers for special holidays.  I searched around Pinterest as well as Close to Home’s archives to find you Valentines Day Teacher gifts for Under $5.  (Prices are estimates on my end) but basically sharing that you can say thank you to your teachers, school administration and not break the bank.  These are thoughtful homemade teacher gifts that the kids can help make too.  Some of these are not just Valentine’s Day but you can change the wording for the holiday.

    Since I am a teacher, I really like the hand wash one from bath and body. We are always washing our hands and go through tons of this! That is a really good idea.
