ARE you fed up of buying your child's teacher mugs and chocolates for Christmas?

Well, you may just want to take note…because a teacher named Rebecca Schlafer has given parents a helping hand by revealing the top five Christmas gifts she's received as a teacher.

In a clip shared to TikTok (@mrs.shewolf34), she starts by saying that coming in at number 5 is something that every teacher needs.

"Fun pens that we all love!" she says.

Next up on the list of gifts she'd be only too happy to receive from her students are "fun earrings."

She notes: "They always spruce up any outfit."
