    Any one have any ideas for teacher presides, around £5 or so. Have two teachers and two toddler group leaders to get for :)

    when I was teaching the most special gifts were stuff made by the kids, I stills have the cards and pictures the children made for me. You could always make some nice biscuits and wrap them in cellophane, or get your lo to make a special Christmas tree decoration. Or maybe buy one of those paint your own mug and do childs handprint of get them to paint it with a message written on it.

    As a teacher I always appreciated any present I got but the most treasured were a personalised Chrismas tree decoration, hand written and decorated recipe for something I had mentioned I loved to eat, two wrap pashmina things (you can get three for £10 in loads of places round here) as I was always seen with a scarf or wrap on during winter and a small beautiful material pen holder that had a picture and message from the child inside.

    As there are five teachers and assistants in Gabriella's nursery, I am going to get them each a small token present and was going to put together a hamper of new books for the nursery, what do you think? :flower:

    I think I'll be making scented jar candles for the teachers at Lucas' nursery. I'll be making them anyway for colleagues/relatives so it shouldn't turn out too expensive. Plus I have like a bazillion jars to fill.

    Think I'll get something like biscuits. Last year my son's playschool said no gifts please so that was easy! Year before I sent in a bottle of wine. I didn't get one for each leader as my mum said when she worked in a playgroup they divided all the presents out so e.g. each person got one wine, one tin biscuits, 2 boxes sweeties.

    Whatever you do, steer clear of the 'worlds best teacher' ornaments! Personally I'd go for something like wine or chocolates. I did receive a lovely mug from a child one year that they'd hand painted themselves and that was really sweet (and useful as I love tea!) but I'm personally not one for decorations and ornaments. I just don't have the space for them!
