Here is an awesome list of DIY Christmas and holiday gift ideas you (and your kids) can make for their daycare teachers this year.
With two kids in daycare, I have been brainstorming the best gifts to get for their teachers this holiday season.
Homemade gifts are the perfect solution – unique, thoughtful, and budget-friendly.
Every year I get so inspired to make handmade Christmas gifts for everyone I know.
Also, every year I end up either Pinterest-failing so hard whatever gift I decided to make that I can’t even give it as a gift OR waiting too long to DIY anything that I run out of time before the holidays arrive.
If you’re like me, this list is here to help.
You can’t go wrong with any of these homemade gift ideas. They are all easy to make and adorable gifts any daycare provider would love to receive this Christmas!
