When the holidays come around, trying to manage your list of who to shop for seems to be a never-ending struggle. Somehow, even when you think you have it all figured out, the list keeps growing. Of course, staying within your budget and still trying to think of unique and interesting gifts is no easy feat, either. But, sometimes even just a small gift, like one for your child's teachers, can show a tremendous amount of appreciation. There are actually a lot of teacher gifts under $25 that they'll actually love, so you can show your gratitude for your little one's caretaker without breaking the bank.
It's no secret teachers have thankless jobs. They work tirelessly to ensure your child learns not only science, reading, and math, but also, kindness, cooperation, and consideration. And, since we all know how we feel after being alone with our own kids for a few hours, I think we can all imagine how they must feel after being alone with 15 children day after day. To say they deserve a treat, a small something just for themselves, is an understatement.
And because our brains our fried from all the holiday shopping and list-making, here are a few ideas to get your gift-giving going.

Hydration, whether water or coffee, is key; this awesome vacuum-insulated flask ($22, Amazon) pulls double duty and keeps cool drinks cold and hot drinks hot. Bonus: it comes in a variety of fun colors and sizes.
9Hand Soap & Lotion
10Pop Top Mittens
This gift has always been a winner for me in the past, and the best part is that it can be customizable to whoever you're giving it to. The Pioneer Woman ($17, Amazon) cookbook is full of accessible meals that are always a hit with teachers with families, and What the F*@# Should I Make for Dinner? ($14, Amazon) is a fun option for young teachers with hipster appetites.
