Raising Leprechauns (05-11-2013)
Sorry - I didnt mean to upset anyone - I was asked how much I spent and I just answered. I'd go and delete the figures - but everyone has quoted me now.
We have had a really tough year with DD and the teacher has bent over backwards to help.
Give what you can afford! I got the voucher idea from a friend who is a teacher (and likes a drink ) who got a voucher from one of her students last year. She went and got a nice bottle of wine to wash all the chocolates down with. $20 is not cheap - nor is $10 or $5. Its the sentiment behind the gift - and putting some thought in to it.
*ducks for cover*
I give my children $20 each and take them to the shop and they buy what they think. Last year DD bought all different little things and I wasn't sure what she was doing but she made a little charm bracelet for her teacher and a few times this year I have spotted the teacher wearing it DS1 likes to put together gift sets and hampers with the biscuits and coffee or tea he sees his teacher preferring throughout the year and nice bathroom things
