I am class rep for dad's year 2 class in an international school overseas. Her lovely teacher is getting married over the Christmas holidays. Obviously I can arrange for the class to sign a card for her but I can't ask for contributions towards a gift that are anything but voluntary. No problem, but then the parents who contribute get a bit miffed about a gift that not everyone has contributed towards iyswim. Can I just include the names of people who have contributed towards the gift on the tag? Is there a solution? Such a petty situation but a minefield! The other solution is for everyone to give their own gifts but it works out much more expensive for everyone and she will end up with several smaller gifts.....

I don't see why a card isn't sufficient.

If people want to buy gifts they can do it independently.
