Hi. I'm teacher, and from personal experience can say that while we are touched by all of the presents, we really really don't expect them! In fact, I just end up feeling guilty - we do get paid for what we do! Chocolates are definitely fine, or bunch of garage forecourt flowers! Best gift I have ever had was a beautifully written letter from one child's mum, thanking me for everything I had done for her child that year. I still have it! So please don't worry about a pressie. If it is for teachers plural, a box of choccies is even better! We love to share
Thanks, it's tricky really as it's a very small class and all the parents except one that I know of give a present at the end of term. I always send a card with nice words in it too. Last year I made photo cards with the teacher and my daughter on them, and little flowers with Thank you on the front. If I had more time, I'd do that again. She is acctually leaving the school in January, so I'll do something special then. (I'll have time to think of something too).
When my d was at nursery, there were several helpers, all lovely. To thank them at the end of the year we made up a lucky dip bag with small prezzies in that cost about £1 each - pens, small tubes of handcream etc. They always seem to get lots of chocs, so thought it'd break the monotony!
