I manage a team of 12 people and I’d like to get everyone a small gift this year as they’ve had a tough year and come through it still smiling. Ideally I’d like to spend no more than £5 pp as money is quite tight at the moment.
I used to do volunteer reading in the reception/year 1classroom along with a few other parents. One year the teacher bought us beautiful felt robin Christmas decoration. It seems odd, but my children are now in secondary school and I think of those early years every time we put it on the tree.
If you have time - and are that way inclined- you could make up a couple of batches of cookie dough and stick in the freezer this weekend. Then you can bake from frozen the night before, bag up in a treat bag and tie with some fancy ribbon. The whole thing should come out under a tenner.
You’d have to be aware of allergies etc, but you could always do something gluten or dairy free if you needed to.
I like those small packs of Lindt chocolates - so they often do packs of five small chocolate teddies, or chocolate reindeer. I think they are a few pounds and they look nice and they could easily be refitted if they don't like chocolate.
