Alcohol, we all love alcohol.

Anything that helps us forget the horror of having to go into school on a Monday morning and face the heathens!!!

(OK, I made all this up - except the alcohol bit, best gift a parent ever gave me).
#2
so the rest of the week is fine is it? :P After being numbed for the Monday morning. :D
#3
What about these... 3 for £10 x Gift sets x

teachers tend to use and value stationery such as post - it notes, highlighters and pens (e.g.fineliners in different colours).(Also not gender specific!!)

One of my pupils gave me a hand-decorated pot (similar to a jam jar) filled with pencils, sharpeners, whiteboard pens etc which was hugely appreciated (the thought and effort alone made it stand out from the more usual candles, mugs and shower gel (which largely get "recycled") Have tried to link to a similar kind of thing - hope it works.

Thanks, that is thoughtful and a lovely idea but wouldn't most of that be provided by the school for daily use?
#6
Definitely alcohol. It takes all year to get rid of all the usual tat. Hard cash also goes down well. Any lynx gift sets will be returned.
#7
My Dad is a teacher...and he would probably say alcohol also!

Some basic stuff, but most buy there own.
I'd say that a Handmade gift is a nice idea or alcohol.
#9
I hate these threads because people always crop up saying they or a relative or friend are a Teacher and they don't like this or that,or get too much of this or that,I think people should just stop buying them anything,solves the problem :D
#10

A gift voucher appears to be the item of choice. It seems a lot of teachers aren't in the profession for the love of teaching anymore-very sad...:|

You would be surprised what the teachers have to provide for themselves!
#14
Re comments above - no teacher expects a gift! However just like anyone else it's lovely when you get one (there are no bonus' or even tea/coffee paid for!) A little box of chocolate mms (Maltesers are £1) are great. If parents want to put money together a voucher is the way to go, but by no way is the norm or expected.
#15
Can you imagine if all 30 children bought their teacher alcohol? You wouldn't see them for weeks for the hangovers! An engraved pen could be a good idea and useful too ( available quite cheap on internet)

Maybe if they didn't have to leave the house at 7.30am just to prepare for the day, do a full day of teaching, then come home to mark books, plan, arrange resources etc, assess work, set targets, and working through until 11pm at night and all weekend, they might stand a better chance. When I was young, I used to think teachers had it easy, 9-3 job with loads of holidays, how wrong can one person be?
#17
What about an engraved glass (wine, whiskey or high glass) a nice personal touch.
A personalised note book or diary or calendar?

This is real world for a lot of occupations. I won't entertain anyone complaining to me about their job, we make our choices.

I don't want you to entertain my complaining, I'm voicing my opinion as are you!

I'm at the back end of my degree in early years, will I hell go in to teaching following the conclusion of my course. I had more sociable hours in the Army, in Iraq.

I did personalised fridge magnets for my children's teachers, l get comments that they are still being used ten years later.
Nail varnish is also a good choice, I never spend more than a few quid, their job choice after all.

I know it's only a £1 but saw these in poundland about a month ago and thought they were worth a £1 as they were a fair size and quality for a pound...they are ceramic and have gold glitter for the design...sadly couldn't buy any myself as I was travelling home by plane and there's no way they'd have survived the baggage handlers...if you wanted to make it a bit more personal your child could put a note inside so that when the teacher eventually "opens" it they'll have a nice little reminder of who it was from....but what about one of these and something else to go with it if you feel you've not spent enough...mind you I always feel it's the thought that counts rather than the cost...

Another oprion is to get the mums together and all put in £5. You can get them a nice present then
#24
one of the sweetest gifts I ever got was a little envelope the child had decorated, with a pack of cappuccino, 2 ferrero rocher and a nice pen (not an expensive one, one where the ink flowed nicely!).
Most teachers don't expect gifts, and are really touched when they do get them. I keep all the cards I get.

My son has only just started school so was unsure too! I got the three teachers (two assistants) a box of green and blacks selection chocolates. Has about 6 different flavours and 2 of each. They're all women so thought i couldn't go wrong with that for this year lol. Hopefully by next year i'll know the teachers a little better and will know what they would like!
