You want the teacher's gift to be useful and within your budget, but you can't seem to zero in on what "it" should be this year. Teachers report that most of the gifts they get cost under $10.  Let me suggest a few of their favorites that might help you make that decision.

A perennial favorite is something your child makes, such as a Christmas ornament or decoration.  So is a ceramic dish or a shell-coated pencil holder made from all those shell you collected on your last Florida vacation.

Another top recommendation is for items that people are always running out of.  Things like stationery, notepads, candles, and specialty napkins.

Like other working mothers and fathers, teachers have little time to bake, and they'll appreciate cookies and bread, as well as other goodies like jam, cheese, and candies, to nibble on themselves or keep on hand for company.

Hardy varieties of plants are a good choice too.  The types that can survive life in the classroom are especially useful.

Picture frames are always nice to have.  Teachers can use these for photos of their family or students.

Many teachers appreciate children books, particularly classics like E.B. White's Charlotte's Web to keep in the classroom.  You might want to give a gift certificate to a children bookstore or find out what they already have so you don't duplicate one.  If you purchase a book be sure to give a gift receipt so, if need be, they can return the book and choose another one.

And last, but not least, items that are useful at school are always appreciated.  Consider a clear plastic clipboard, desktop accessories or wall calendars with beautiful photographs or illustrations.

Whatever you chose remember it's still true that it's the thought that goes into the gift that counts most!
