Over the years we've had lots of people ask the question, "What should I get my child's teacher for a Christmas gift?" We realize that all parents have different Christmas budgets and a lot of parents don't have a lot of extra money at Christmas time. Here is a list of 10 different gift ideas you child's teacher will LOVE! And great news... they are all less than $10!

1. Pack of Sharpies
Believe me, all teachers love Sharpies! The more colors, the better! This 24 pack is selling on Amazon right now for only $9.99! This is a great deal and would look so cute all wrapped up with a bow!
2. Flair Pens
Along the same lines as Sharpies, Flair pens are the perfect teacher pen! They write so smooth, don't bleed through pages, and make grading and planning more fun!
3. Cute water bottle
It's always nice to have a new water bottle around! As a teacher I always had my water bottle filled with cold ice water by my side. You can fill the inside with some candy or add a little vinyl lettering to the outside to make this a gift your teacher will love.
4. Bath Bomb Gift Set
What teacher wouldn't want to spend their Christmas break relaxing in the tub?! Bath bombs are my favorite because they smell amazing and make relaxing so much fun.
5. Cute Notebook
A cute notebook can be used for so many things. Add a colored pen and this gift would be very much appreciated.
6. Amazon Gift Card
Chances are that if you get your teacher an Amazon card, they will most likely spend in on their classroom. Specifically new books for their classroom! You can never go wrong with an Amazon gift card!
7. New Office Supplies
Now that it's half-way through the school year, your teachers supplies are probably starting to run low. A pack like this would be a fun surprise!
8. Mr. Sketch Markers
Something about scented markers make teachers swoon! And, bonus, this pack is listed as 50% off right now!
9. iTunes Gift Card
iTunes gift cards are perfect because teachers can use them to buy audio books or apps for their iPads for students to use.
10. Cute Clipboard
You can never have too many cute clipboards! For a cheaper option, buy a regular clipboard and personalize it for your teacher with scrap book paper and some embellishments.
When in doubt, a nice hand-written card and a $5 or $10 gift card is a great option for a teacher gift! I always appreciated a movie gift card, restaurant gift card, or a shopping gift card. The dollar amount on the card never mattered to me, it was about being able to have a night out with my husband or friends and relax. Teaching is stressful and the simple act of saying, "Thank you for all you do, please enjoy a night out," always meant the world to me!
