    I'm doing Gloria jeans vouchers- they have them in $5 increments (according to their website). Vistaprint have personalised pens for $6 and notepads for $12.

    The dan Murphy's gift voucher is a great idea. Thank you so much I have been stressing about what to buy, and thought maybe a bottle of wine but didn't know what they drank .

    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.
    No offence taken at all from me I just got paranoid I was being cheap, as this is my first year having to consider it!

    You just mentioned 'teacher' then too, was that referring to only one present? Or you have a few? Because I'm actually spending up to $100 in total, it's just I have 4 to buy for!

    I don't think you upset anyone! I think your very generous & sounds like your DDs carers deserve it!!! My DDs teachers do too, they've gone above & beyond to help her, id buy them the whole liquor shop if I could! It's not a contest, I'm sure any gift would be appreciated, I wish I could afford to do what you've done that's all

    Sounds like there are a few teachers/carers that like a drink at the end of the day!

    I have to admit that I'm one of those boring mum who does tend to buy a BIG box of chocolates for all the carers to share in the lead up to Christmas. I don't buy individual gifts as there are quite a few carers at my daughter's childcare centre beyond just those in her kinder room - there are many others who also spend time with my little girl when covering breaks and towards the end of the day when they group kids together in the centre because there aren't so many present.

    We have chickens so giving the girls teachers (combined there's 4 of them) a carton of our home free range eggs. Will get the girls to decorate paper 'sleeves' to wrap around the cartons.

    Nemmy, I have that same problem. I spoke with the director about what is appropriate. She told me not to buy for people that just cover breaks.

    There is one lady I am buying for though that isn't in his room full-time, but she's lovely with him so it's my choice to.
