Want to start looking around for something special for dd2's teacher.

Dd loves her and she has had so much fun with her and will really miss her. Dd wants to get her something really special.

So ideas please, especially from teachers

Teachers do like booze, don't they...can't imagine why!

what's your budget nutty?

my last class organised a wee collection. They only put in a couple of quid each but that raised a stonking £100 of john lewis vouchers. I bought myself something lovely & will always remember that class when i look at it.

Dd said that she was telling her teacher how much she loves her today and her teacher said 'i will really miss you when you go you know '

janeybops Fri 17-Jun-05 19:29:27

janeybops Fri 17-Jun-05 19:30:02

aloadoffishyballs Fri 17-Jun-05 19:30:10

nutcracker Fri 17-Jun-05 19:30:25

fatgit Fri 17-Jun-05 19:31:41

i think personalised mugs are the fashionable thing at the moment, and i can just imagine miss bond with six miss bond mugs...

nutcracker Fri 17-Jun-05 19:32:42

LOL @ the straw and champagne

I hate to be a pooper, but I don't really agree with giving gifts because it becomes very competitive. I'm an SLT and I hate getting presents that are obviosly expensive, especially from rich parents. I always think they expect favorable treatment in return. Chocs and flowers are somehow different.

Then again, perhaps it's different with teachers, it's not like you are tryng to influence how they deal with your child as they are going on to another class.

I don't ever remember giving a pressie to a teacher (except when we were in high school and we might organise a collection between ourselves and send someone shopping). Have things really changed that much or were we really just stingy bastards ?
