I very much want to send a gift to show my appreciation for her teacher, but I hate thinking that I'm sending something they neither want nor need. Or worse, something they hate having around and will have to unload at next year's garage sale. My mom was a teacher when I was a kid and she got a lot of Avon perfume and scented soaps. I'm sure she was lovely to the kids, but she hated that stuff. And presumably 15 lbs of chocolate is not always welcome.
So, I turn to you, teachers of MeFi and ask what you wish they'd get you instead another World's Greatest Teacher mug.
A thousand apologies if this gets asked every year, but I've looked back the past few, plus searched keywords and the questions seem to be more about buying something for a loved one who is a teacher or for an asker's thesis supervisor.
