My DD finishes school tomorrow for easter. I saw a mum go in today with a huge box of hyacinth plants to give to the teachers in her Dd's class and the nursery class her other DD goes to.

Do you give presents?

hadn't occured to me...

No - dds are in secondary now so teachers don't get any pressies at all. In primary they got presents for Christmas and at the end of the school year.

I am a secondary teacher though and if anybody wants to give me a present I would be very happy!

I always used to buy his teacher a large bunch of daffs...

I work in a school now and it makes my day to receive a little gift.... makes me feel appreciated...

big bunch of daffs is a fab idea, but my ds would DIE if I made him take them in! I guess I could leave them at the office for his lovely teachers...

I have done. DD finishes tomorrow. Have got her teacher a Lush easter egg and bunny, gift wrapped.

DD's teacher gave all the girls some chocolate eggs, plus I got a plant for thanks for helping out.

Has never occured to me to buy them anything for Easter. I usually send in a gift at Christmas and at the end of the school year but never at Easter. Have never noticed anyone else do it either tbh.

I get an end of term gift for them rather than Easter stuff.

Hyacinths is a lovely idea.

no. tbh I am always putting my hand in my pocket for something school related. I buy at christmas (booze) only

Daffs are a nice idea. Left it to the last minute! I could buy some daffs but what will i wrap them in?

god, yet more stuff to waste money on.....

dd always wants to give presents at the end of each term, so at Easter they get dd-made cards and a small potted plant, usually hyacinth or daffs. They are lovely teachers, and the kids love them, so I'm happy to do that.
