Buying a teacher's gift is not always straightforward; as a parent, you want to show genuine appreciation; but go one step too far and you quickly find yourself in the land of "apple polishers." Our strategy is to go for the small, useful, and well-designed gift.

N.B.: To make sure we've got everyone on your list covered, we're running a new gift guide every weekday from now until Christmas. You can see all of our gift guides to date at Remodelista Daily: Holiday Gifts.
