Well, I would want your gift, she will likely appreciate you wife's choice. A gift card to a quality office supply store would also be a good choice for a teacher. Good on you two BTW for sending some love to the teacher.

Come on people, how would you like to get supplies for work as a Christmas gift? An office supply gift card should be given when school starts, but not as a present.
I would suggest a Visa gift card or cash. Then she can spend it on whatever pleases her.
And people, don't give Mugs and cocoa and things like that for a gift. It really is wasted money.
I'm an elementary teacher. My FAVORITE gift is a restaurant gift card, or any other kind of gift card. Even $5 to Starbucks or Target makes me happy. Although to be honest, I really don't want a office supply gift card. Maybe that's just me.
I do NOT want: mugs, food, candles, or ANYTHING from Bath and Body Works. Or a tote bag. I have gotten truckloads of those over the years.
I have one awesome parent who gave me a gift certificate to a local wine shop. That was appreciated.
My best gift ever was from a parent who had season tickets to the Chastain Park concert series in Atlanta, and she told me to pick any 2 concerts and my husband and I could go with her husband and her. That was over the top amazing.
