It is that time again - time to show your kid's teacher just how much you appreciate everything that they do. But choosing a gift for a teacher can be really tricky.
It can also get really expensive - especially if you find that you also have to fork out for one or two teaching assistants as well. Multiply that by the number of children you have and Christmas can get really pricey - and that is before you have bought any gifts for your own family.
So here is our gift guide for Teachers - 20 things they will really like all of which are under £20. Some cost only a couple pounds.
