The best teacher Christmas gifts are both thoughtful and useful. Luckily, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a meaningful statement. Many of our favourite teacher gift ideas aren’t pricey at all, but they can still be considerate, sweet and sentimental. Most importantly, teachers’ gifts should make them feel appreciated—and make their tough jobs feel a little bit easier. (When you’re totally stumped, you can’t go wrong with a Walmart gift card—they can use it to load up on supplies or buy themselves a little something nice!)
