Etsy Favorites - gifts for Teachers

I usually feature in my weekly (or somewhat-weekly, I should say) Etsy Favorites Wednesday lists five items that I'd like to buy for myself or buy as gifts for people or items that I admire, made by talented artisans. For the next four editions of Etsy Favorite Wednesdays, I'm going to feature holiday gift ideas! This week's list kicks it off with gift ideas for teachers! 

I always give my kids teachers a little something around the holidays. They work very hard with my girls and all the other little boys and girls in their class. I think teachers often don't get the praise or encouragement that they deserve, so during the holiday season I like to let them know that they are appreciated. 

I found this lovely collection of ideas on Etsy - maybe they'll inspire you to get (or make!) something handmade for your child's teacher this year!

I love the apple cozy - I think I need one for my daily apple so it doesn't get dirty in my purse.
