Gifts to buy a male teacher
When you get a male teacher it can be a bit trickier to pick something he will like. We like this Hark Home personalised print (from $30).
Gifts for a tech teacher
And if Sir is a bit of a tech whiz a case for his tablet like the Herschel Supply Co. Anchor Sleeve will go down a treat ($34.95).
Gifts that mean something but cost next to nothing
