Still not sure what teachers really want? Let them pick something themselves! My top choices for gift cards? Teacher Pay Teachers and Amazon. 

Teachers pay Teachers have gift cards from as little as $5.00 and right up to $500.00. If you’re thinking that you want something teachers can use for themselves, not the classroom, let me assure you that gaining back some time by getting materials ready to use is a huge gift. 

Have you finished your holiday shopping? If you have teachers still on your list, skip the #1 teacher mug. Here’s a guide to what teachers really want.

Amazon gift cards are a great choice because there are just so many options, and it lets teachers get something for themselves or the classroom.

Whatever you choose, a personal note included is sure to brighten a teacher’s day.
