Do you or dont you?

My son is due to finish reception on Friday and loads of the kids have been taking in flowers and chocolates for their teacher

As everyone else is doing it I think my sons going to want to aswell. What do you buy a male teacher though? Dont want to do flowers or chocolates as thats what all the kids do.

Any ideas? I dont want to spend very much

Give him a silver star with comments "Try harder next time, gold could be yours..."
#4
our local schools dont allow it
#5
ive always done it for my two kids teachers, usually female ones but i also get the caretaker (male ) a bottle of red wine ( mainly because i know him personally though as i used to work there ! ) but i think wine for males is safe

really? lol i did when i was at school (wont mention its name but u know what it is) the teachers were always happy to accept a gift lol
#7
send chocolates or a mug or something similar, wine isn't safe as not all people drink alcohol (but of course not everyone eats chocolates but that tends to be very few people)
#8
A pack or red biro pens?

I agree with this in a way tbh, as a lot of parents feel they have to , and may not be able to afford it, especially as they have two in each class in ours ( well teacher assistant ) so its not a bad idea !!!

ye micoo-the mearns schools have banned it(remember the notorious "helicopter to the prom"?)

too many kids competing with each other to outdo one another and it just became plain silly-as you know theres a lot of rangers and celtic players kids going to the mearns schools-teachers were getting 200 quid store vouchers from primary 2/3 kids! one of the male teachers was given a set of golf clubs by the daughter of a certain celtic player-think that was the final straw,and the letters went home telling them teachers could no longer accept gifts.

haha, didnt know about the golf club thing, i would love to be that teacher lol, i always got my female teachers choccys and the male ones ties (the ones i liked anyway) must have banned it when i left
#16
yes i found loadsa stuff half price in clintons! but i keep it simple. one of my froends goes way OTT giving 35quid boxes of chocs. is mad as then she gives it to the assistants as well!! others give vouchers, some give huge boquets of flowers, its mad cos they get gifts at xmas as well. but i do like his pre school teacher. on the flipside gave nowt to my son in year 2 teacher...shes evil! i was he only one not to give her a gift!
#17
I've always belonged to the 'What on earth do you buy presents for your kids teachers for?' school of thought. However that was before I had kids! Now the first one has just finished his first year of Nursery I find myself buying cards for his teacher, her assistant, and one of the parent-helpers who is especially nice. My son has had a fab time there, and they've all been such lovely people. I won't be buying presents for them, but will send in a box of cakes for the end of year party - for the class to share, and I imagine the teachers will eat a few...
#18
ive got address books and a nice pen, Did think about a Banana plant as well LOL! They are doing them at Lidls 2 for £4
#19
The banana Plants are 2 for £4 on Thursday, was thinking of getting somme early Thursday morning before school
#20
My wife's a teacher and has taught most years - the things she loved were the bits the kids had made themselves, nice cards, someone made some little biscuits for her, one painted her a nice picture and framed it

Dont get too hung up on thinking you have to spend loads, some people go crazy but theres no real need
banned#21
It is weird it is allowed, i worked in a residential home for the edlerly and where not allowed to acept gifts from resident of the families of residents

Every year we buy presents and cards for all the teachers that have been educating our daughter. Last year, primary school, the only male teacher got a nice gift boxed parker pen set and the ladies got flowers. This year in the secondary school the only male teacher got a fancy keyring and a book, plus a card, whilst ladies got chocolates, a plant and a card.

I think it is only fair we say thank you, especially if the teaching has brought about some great results. Lucky for us, madam has been top of the class which is a reflection of the efforts the teachers have put in and the environment the school has made for learning.

As already mentioned you don't need to go over board with spending just something other than favourite teacher mugs, which most buy, is a token of your appreciation for their hard work.

Thank you to everyone for your views, think I might get my son to make him a card and picture and get him a pen or something random like that.

Sassie - My Mam is a warden in sheltered accomadation and shes not allowed to recieve gifts from the residents at christmas or anything.

Personally I think the school should have the same sort of policy, I kind of feel the need to buy teacher something because everyone else is, i dont want to be the only parent who doesnt!

I have never done this for either of my children, and dont intend starting, dont feel like you have to as no doubt it all goes in the bin anyway, or do people think teachers clutter their homes with all these gifts, i think not, and i do agree i dont think they should be able to accept gifts
#25
we started getting gifts for teachers in nursery class, my son's now in the 3rd year at primary school and it's getting beyond a joke, going from 1 nursery teacher to having 2 main teachers and 2 support staff to buy gifts for... and for the most part the teacher is going to receive 25+ gifts each year from their students.. how many do you think they actually keep.. all these "best teacher" mugs and picture frames for example have to go somewhere... lol ( the bin probably )
get them a card and some chocolates.. card goes in the bin after a week and chocs are eaten.. bada bing !!
