As parents face the yearly dilemma of what gifts to buy their child’s teacher this holiday season, it comes as no surprise that Amazon has us covered (and with much more than just coffee mugs and apple-shaped paperweights!). From gift cards to unique personalized stationary and monogrammed tote bags, here are the top gifts, available on Amazon, that will delight teachers without cluttering their classrooms.



Gift cards

Gift cards top teacher’s holiday wish lists every single year, hands-down. And since most teachers spend over $500 on classroom supplies each year, anything you can do to lighten their financial load will make their holiday a little brighter. Know your teacher’s favorite restaurant? Even better–treat them to a night out.

They’re teachers, so chances are pretty good they love stationary. These items are both fun and unique, so your teacher probably doesn’t already have something like it sitting on his or his or her desk. Word to the wise? Always go for practical over cute. Teachers love cute, but if it isn’t useful, it’s clutter.

Edible Treats

Ask most teachers and they’ll agree, there’s only one rule when it comes to kids bearing chocolate covered treats: the more the merrier. Just make sure you know if your teacher has any food allergies before you buy.
