Tip # 16: Give a Teacher a Gift Certificate
Appreciate a teacher by giving a gift certificate. You pretty much can't go wrong with these -- about 40 percent of respondents to our gift poll said this was their favorite. (Although one Edutopia community member got so many Starbucks cards one year that she developed a caffeine addiction.) Mix it up: Consider a coffee shop, a bookstore, an office-supply store, or a restaurant.
