Ok, sorry, it's not life threatening! BUT, ds1 leaves his pre-school on Wednesday and I need gifts for teachers pronto!

No idea what to get but I want to get something nice for the playgroup leader/head and then a little something for each other 'teacher' of which there are 6.

Cheap as poss and something I can get tomorrow pm/eve!!

do you have posh choccy shop near by? could get little boxes 3-4 choccys in nicely wrapped ,,and bigger for the leader

no soaps or candles. Teachers tend to be inundated with those

pot plants. Got some lovely ones in the supermarket & then presented them with transparent printed film and velvet home-made ribbons. Looked lovely & cost very little.

Chocs or biscs. They'll be inundated with pressies and at least these will keep for a while until they get round to eating them.

Could you get ds1 to make cards to go with them?

ooh, am liking the plant idea. Agree re candles - I bought candles for Xmas

Love the posh chocs for the teachers too. Hmm, wonder if I can get out tomorrow pm for those...

plants - at least if they last... they can remember your ds1.... what about a little pottery pot with choc - something to enjoy now and something to have for later.... iykwim.

We are doing a survival pack for ds teacher to cope with next years horrors. Box with ear plugs, mini vodka, etc with little instruction manual too
