10 Teachers… 22 if you count the related arts ‘specials’ teachers!
What is a mom to do? I remember when my boys were younger, teacher gifts were easy. All my boys were in the same school. They would each have one main teacher and would have the same related arts teachers. I could buy a few teacher gifts and get pretty creative with them, costs weren’t too much of a concern. Fast forward to now. I have teachers in middle school and in grade school to shop for. My middle schoolers switch classes for each class and their related arts teachers are different from my grade schoolers. Last year, as the holidays approached I found myself overwhelmed with the idea of teacher’s gifts. There are between 20-30 teachers I could potentially be shopping for. Does every teacher get a gift? Do related arts teachers get left off the list? What about the school secretaries? If I was going to be able to send in teacher’s gifts for every teacher I needed easy, cheap teacher gift ideas.
Then, I had a lightbulb moment. I would use New Jersey Lottery Instant Games as teacher gifts. I remember how fun it was when I taught and a parent had gifted me lottery tickets. It was a gift that showed thought but could also pay off big. I headed over to my local Wawa and used the New Jersey Lottery Instant Games machine and bought lottery tickets for each teacher. They loved it! Some even got lucky before the school break started. That’s why this year when the New Jersey Lottery offered me the opportunity to work with them on a marketing campaign to promote New Jersey Lottery tickets as gifts, I jumped at the chance. I knew lottery tickets as teacher gifts are a fabulous solution for parents like me looking for inexpensive teacher gift ideas.

Send them with an elf! I was able to get these personalized elves. These elves will go to our school secretaries because we are so ‘lucky’ to have them.
Add them to a wreath. I was able to find small wreaths like this at my local dollar store. I added a few New Jersey Lottery instant game tickets to the wreath with a dot of glue under each ticket to hold it into place.
Stuff them in a stocking. Minstockings are a perfect way to gift lottery tickets. Just place them inside with an edge sticking out so teachers can see the gift that is to come. I love that at this size, you can still easily mail them with a card in a standard-size card envelope.
Hang them by the garland. This might be my favorite idea. I found garland with Christmas trees and snowflake mini-clothespins. The garlands came 12 clothespins for a $1.
