This holiday season, spoil your child’s teacher with 12 Days of Christmas Gifts for teachers. Teachers are incredibly important and in order to get gifts for each one it is important to find affordable Christmas gifts!
We’ve made some free printable cards with simple presents found at some of our favorite retailers to make this affordable gift idea something your child’s teacher will be so excited for!
12 Days of Christmas Ideas
The idea here is to present your child’s teacher with useful and fun smaller gifts over a series of 12 days, instead of one big gift right before the holiday. Some of the items are more expensive than others, but there is a great mix of affordable options that will fit any budget.
Shopping for affordable holiday gifts can add up quickly. That’s why I am using Ibotta this holiday season to earn cash back while I shop.
Ibotta is simple to use and easy to set up. Simply download the app and search for deals at your favorite retailers. Go shopping, then upload your receipt and earn cash!
Affordable Christmas Presents for Teachers
I headed to Target and Trader Joe’s to pick up items for our 12 Days of Christmas Teacher Gifts.
One of the deals that I found at Target was for J.R. Watkins Hand Soap, which fit perfectly with our 12 Days of Christmas gifts.
I picked up several bottles for our teachers — Ibotta will let you redeem deals on multiple items (check the app for restrictions), so all I had to do was upload my receipt!
I also picked up some chips and salsa, mints, and more grocery items from Trader Joe’s and World Market. I used the Any Brand or Any Item offer to match my receipts.
There are tons of online retailers where you can earn credit for shopping through Ibotta — some of my favorites are Amazon, Target, Walmart, World Market, and Trader Joe’s.
