A desk name plate in "Braille". The dots can be made with puff paint.  I think that almost any homemade gift would be treasured, just as you treasure those that your child made for you.

I have seen plastic molds for chocolate or homemade soap on ebay that have messages in Braille. They aren't very expensive and can be used over and over.

There is a type of candy that you may have seen that are colored dots stuck to a roll of paper. The dots are just like a Braille cell. You can carefully remove the dots to make a message. The dots can spell "For You" or some cute message.
Make bookmarks brailled with inspirational quotes, especially by people with visual impairments. I used old calendars (the APH calendars are great) because the paper is stiff enough to braille and to be an efficient bookmark.
Here is a link to a website that sells braille jewelry this link pasted below is for a teacher's necklace

Good luck with your gift,Britta

We are looking for ideas for a great teacher gift for an AWESOME Braille teacher. She has gone way above and beyond, we really want her to know how much we appreciate her. (And yes, we'll nominate her for teacher of the year next time around!) She works with our high school students.

Any ideas, suggestions?
