It's that time of year again where we all fork out way too much money on gifts for friends, family and just about everyone in between.

And teachers definitely get the Crimbo prezzie treatment big time from whole classes of students at a time, but it's clear some luck out more than others.

So, to ensure you get your kid's teacher a gift they'll actually treasure, one teacher has come forward to reveal the five presents they really want this Christmas.

The second grade teacher, Mrs. Wagenleitner, who goes by the handle @kriswags3 online, started the rundown telling puzzled parents to opt for 'personalised gifts' when in doubt.

She explained: "It could be cups, tumblers, shirts, tote bags, anything that has the teacher's name on it.

"I just feel like those are very thoughtful and very intentional, and we love getting that kind of stuff.

"It does require you to plan ahead, so that's definitely a gift where you have to have a little more time to order it in."

The second thing on Mrs. Wagenleitner's list was 'gift cards', adding: "Those are so underrated but very appreciated."

She even offered some suggestions on which companies to go for when choosing a gift card including the likes of Starbucks, Amazon, and restaurants.

"We love receiving those because we can spend them when we want and how we want - those are really great gifts to give," she said.

"If nothing else, run to the store, go grab a gift card and get it for your teacher - they'll love it."

The third gift idea on the present inspo list was a 'gift basket' with a 'bunch of random little things' inside.

The teacher noted: "I feel like putting that together takes a little time, but you can literally throw anything in the basket."

Next up was 'teacher supplies' and other 'things that teachers like to keep at their desk'.

And last but by no means least addition on the gift guide, which costs the grand total of nothing, is something far more sentimental.

Talking about how nice it is to a handwritten note saying 'thank you', the teacher said: "I love handwritten notes and just really writing out why you appreciate them, why you value them, the growth that you've seen in your child.

"Anything written out like that is super special because I feel like a lot of times we don't get that affirmation, so to know from a parent that we're doing a good job...nothing beats that."

Mrs. Wagenleitner ended the video adding: "That's priceless for me so that's number one on my list."
