Finding the perfect gift for teachers, coaches, neighbors, etc., can be a real challenge. Depending on the number of people you want to give a gift to, this can be an expensive task as well. To keep things reasonable, consider a homemade gift that the kids can help you make. By involving the kids in the creation of the gift, they will be extra excited to share something they’ve made with the people that matter to them.
