When thinking about gifts for teachers, you'll want to give them something thoughtful, heartfelt and useful. At the same time, you don't want the gift to be too personal. It really is meant to be a sentiment and a thank you rather than an actual mind-blowing gift.

It's also worth keeping in mind that some schools have limits on how much teachers can accept in the form of gifts. A quick call through to the school office to subtly check the rules can avoid having your thoughtful but too pricey gift politely declined.

If you're buying a present for your child's teacher, you should be aware that kids and students love to be involved in the choosing process. After all, they're the ones who spend the most time with them. Getting your kids involved also adds a special touch, as they can then make their mark on the Christmas gift.
