All the teachers and staff at our school deserve a thanks at Christmas. Last year I bought loads of fruit T bags for the staff room. I can't get round them all to thank them so need a joint gift I can put in the staff room.

Any ideas?

Choc biscuits or choc cakes, yum!

And the gesture is much appreciated smile

Fruit basket?

Chocolate or cake in the staff room makes every day better.

This year I've decided to do a hamper for the staff room, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and some nice m&s biscuits (any recommendations?)
The pens and stationary sound nice and they have a bag of paper mate mini ball point pens in multiple colours in poundland.

I like the idea of a hamper for the staff room, for those who do that how far in advance of the end of term do you take it in? At the start of the last week so they can enjoy it before they break up?

We are so not going to get excited about a fruit basket. It’s biscuits and chocolate all the way in our staff room!

I'm in a nursery but we would also love biscuits, tea, stationary bits, cake, even things like pringles or savoury bits! And fruit lots of us love fruit and should be avoiding the treats as am on slimming world I would say about a week-10 days before break up to be able to make the most of it!

DS breaks up on Wednesday 20th so it sounds like the Monday of the week before would be a good time.

Honestly, whatever’s up there it’s gone in a day grin

Cook a massive batch of Sauasage rolls and take them in warm for coffee time, our school loved it

Oh brilliant! what I would give for a sausage roll on
cold December morning when you have to get through the day with a bit of a hangover. Try to get them there on the day after the staff Xmas party !

I am going to bake for them but apparently they are all very health conscious.

I volunteer in a school - we'd need a never-ending supply of milk!

We’ve got a mum who brings us homemade curry and rice at lunchtime on the last day of term. It’s great!
