Woven Grace sells beautiful magnetic notepad covers (Note: Scroll down to the bottom of the products to find them!) made by artisans in Haiti, perfect for a teacher gift (and they also offer gorgeous greeting cards to go with the gift!) Each handmade product comes with a touching story. (This was a hit with the teacher I ordered it for :)
