That's super sweet! I think your teachers will really love that you want to make them gifts, most teachers above grade school don't get anything for Christmas or teacher appreciation day from their students.

I think these book pendant necklaces are super cute and would make a good gift for a teacher-

Homemade lotion would make for a great gift for every teacher, we love things we can keep in our desk drawer and have on hand-

Also baked goods are a great way to go with any teacher-

Your Scottish teacher will probably appreciate something that reminds her of home, like a traditional Christmas Cracker-

Hope that all helps you out.

I think a neat gift for a teacher would be a big coffee mug full of personalized little gifts. Since mugs are easy to find, inexpensive, and come in all colors and patterns, it would be easy to make individualized little gift baskets with them.
You could personalize basic pens with air-dry clay and faux flowers and the like, and make all sorts of little stationery gifts.

I had an English teacher in my first year of college that loved the stationery I was making from newspaper comics and colored construction paper--I'd make envelopes from the comics and make blank newsprint cards with colored inserts.

My favorite resource for cheap crafts is -- there's everything from seasonal gifts to quirky trinkets.

Age 14 is usually grade 8 or 9 in the USA. University's at age 18 or higher in most cases.

Good luck with your giftmaking. Post more pictures as you finish them Happy
