Gift cards are a convenient and typically favored option. Some teachers enjoy gifts they can use in their classrooms. An office or education supply store's gift card would be greatly appreciated. Other teachers, though, would prefer something they might enjoy away from work. For them, a gift card from a restaurant, shop, spa or cinema would be a win. To increase the odds of it being used, make sure the gift card is for something the teacher actually enjoys and that the spot is conveniently located.
