    The Christmas break doesn’t just mean Santa for kids and Prosecco for everyone else. (I mean, it sort of does.) But for a cadre of hardworking teachers up and down the country, it is cause for a collective sigh of relief.

    After a term of glitter glue and safety scissors, new starter wobbles through to making halloween decorations and trying to somehow work Batman into the story of the nativity (clue: he’s one of the wisemen) it’s a break that’s well earned.

    But what do you get them to say thank you that’s not a generic gift set or a box of biscuits you had left over from last year?

    (Believe us, they’ll get so many gifts like this that it’s unlikely they’ll remember which one came from your child.)

    So to make life easier for you, Marie Claire has rounded up the best gifts to buy your child’s teacher this Christmas.

    From the practical reusable coffee cup (if you’re a teacher, chances are coffee is a big part of the job) to the decorative (can you ever go wrong with a bunch of flowers?)

    We’ve included everything from little treats to help them unwind after a long term, to the prettiest stationary guaranteed to make the everyday desk that little bit brighter and better.

    Forget the last minute panic dash to the shops. This year, pop the kettle on, switch on a Christmas film for background noise and shop the best Christmas gifts for teachers from your sofa.

    And when you’re finished here, check out our Christmas gifts for mums, dads, kids and couples, too.

    And if after all this you’re in the market for a well-deserved gift for yourself (online shopping can be hard, too!) then check out our edit of the best gifts for her.

    Consider Christmas sorted.

    Happy shopping…
