ATLANTA -- It's the time of the year when it's common to buy gifts for our children's teachers.

On 11Alive's Facebook page, we asked parents and teachers to share ideas on what to get teachers, and we received some good ideas.

We also received lots of comments from teachers about what not to give.

One person, DebraJane Luney Kirkaldy said emphatically, "Please, no candles, lotions or apple anythings!"

A few people agreed with her.

What do they want?

1. Gift Cards (restaurants, spas, theaters, book stores.)
2. School Supplies
3. Gift Baskets
4. Homemade or Handmade items
5. Volunteer Services (parents helping teachers)
