It's that time of the year when everyone is checking their list twice to make sure that they've covered everyone on their shopping list this Christmas season. For some people, that list may include a gift for their child's teacher (or teachers). My parents were both teachers and I remember some of the good--and not so good--Christmas gifts that they brought home.

If you're still deciding what to get the teacher in your life, according to a list by CafeMom.com, there are some gifts that you really should avoid. First, those 'teacher' ornaments are really cute and you can find them at almost any craft show in the area...however, teachers have TONS of these already stored in a bin in their closet. Second, although you may think that you make the best sugar cookies in Clinton County, there's a good chance those cookies won't be consumed by the teacher. As the article explains, teachers "tend to be cautious about eating something homemade if they aren't very familiar with the family who made it." (No offense.) And lastly, no coffee mugs--please. Just like the ornaments...they already have WAY too many mugs and no place to put them. If you'd like to see the complete list of gifts to avoid, click here.

And if you're wondering what teachers actually do want for Christmas, the answer is easy....gift cards! According to Good Housekeeping, you can't go wrong with an Amazon gift card. Click here to see their other suggestions.
