Give them to the charity shop nearest the school with the packaging and more importantly all the little messages written by the children still on them - they were packs with to / from panels on the side

I noticed them this morning looking for a coat for DD. 10 mugs all with little messages eg - to Mrs X thank you for being a great teacher love X

DDs in that teachers class this year and while I don't give mugs as I don't like them it puts me off buying her anything at all I usually give teachers wine

miserable cow. DH gets mugs like this from his students and uses all of them! I wouldn't buy her anything if it were me. She's obv not very good at receiving gifts

I've no idea why teachers get presents anyway.

I recommend children should put a frog in the teachers handbag on the last day of term.

Miserable bag. At the least they could go in the staff room.

I'm a bit P/A though and would be tempted to get hernonenof the charity shop ones grin

Her one of*

Sorry, fat fingersgrin

Harsh but imagine being given 10 mugs every year.

What do you expect her to do with them all? Genuine question.

buy her all 10 and give them back for christmas grin

I can understand giving them to a charity shop but take the labels off first fgs!

It's not difficult to give them to a charity shop in a different area and remove the labels is it? If you really want to buy a gift for a teacher make it something that is consumable.

I remember a thread on here about a teacher binning all the homemade food, cookies etc because she didn't trust it had been made under hygienic standards she could risk eating. Puts you off bothering sometimes, although we do tend just have a class rep type collection.

Oops! I assume school staff rooms are full of such mugs?

At very least she should have taken the labels off and put them in a shop not so close!

Buy them back and give them to her for Christmas, again. The miserable, ungrateful witch. Leave the bag of gifts in the school, labelled clearly so she gets them returbed, anon.

maddening Tue 27-Nov-12 14:12:10

buy them and give them to her as an Xmas present next year

curiousuze Tue 27-Nov-12 14:12:27

Mosman - have you ever watched 'Hoarders'? That has kind of put me off eating things from people I don't know's kitchens!

What a misery. sad

DS's teacher is Vegan and we are making him Vegan Brownies so I hope he doesn't bin them. Oh and a tie that plays 'We wish you a Merry Christmas'. grin He is the best teacher ever though.

MisForMumNotMaid Tue 27-Nov-12 14:13:58

Great minds maddening. Buy one and cross off / stick a new label over the from. The will win twice!

MisForMumNotMaid Tue 27-Nov-12 14:14:14

The 'charity' will win twice.

redlac Tue 27-Nov-12 14:15:19

I hope you bought them to give back to her this year!

Mugs are evil, though.

OutragedFromLeeds Tue 27-Nov-12 14:17:16

I wouldn't eat food made by kids unless I'd supervised the cooking process either. Remember the sucked candy cane in the cake thread from the other day <vom face>.

She should have taken the labels off the cups though.

Sparklingbrook Tue 27-Nov-12 14:18:38

How can I prove to DS2's teacher that his Brownies were made under strict hygiene conditions? sad

And YY to steering clear of anything with 'Teacher' on it.
