Think about it: she’s the reason your kid is going to cure cancer or become the next Steve Jobs. So if there’s one person you simply shouldn’t skimp on a holiday gift for, it’s your child’s teacher. She’s too important!

We don’t want you to blow it this year, so we polled a few teachers and got the inside scoop on what they really want from their students’ parents. At the top of their list? Cash. (Crazy, I know.) At the bottom? Scarves, cookies, soaps and candles. Here are the 4 other gifts that will get you (and your child) a gold star.
