If there are a lot of staff and they vary I would go for one big group present, such as chocolates or biscuits to share over a coffee.

I usually give a little gift at Christmas or if one of the kids has moved up a room (this is at the nursery).

Also buy a little gift for the teachers at school at the end of Summer Term (which reminds me - haven't sorted that out yet and they finish 3 weeks on Tuesday!!!!).

In 4 weeks time, DD2 will be leaving nursery -very sad time - DD1 started there Jan. 1998, with DS1 following in, then DD2 - so have become VERY attached to the staff (also up until recently I was working there) - so this year I'm buying them something special for the actual nursery to use (had a sneaky look on their "wish list" ), plus buying something for DD2 Keyworker.

You can't go wrong with wine! The think about chocolates and alike is that most teachers are women and hence always on a diet and they do get a lot of chocolates. I am sure you agress you can never have too much wine - or a nice bunch of flowers or even a little plant. Or book token - just thinking what I would like to get.

I once got a poster of robbie williams with is inside my cupboard at work

Thanks for the guidance... I'll have to think about whether to do the group or individual thing (problem is that I don't know all their names so group gift is looking good!)

Last year I got my son's teacher a beanie owl (which had a teachers hat and cape) with class of 2003 on it. I thought it was really original and a good keepsake.
