    You can come back out I appreciate your opinion and think it's correct.

    Wow so many awesome ideas. I work in childcare and have only ever been given chocolates or home made treats which I love!! The water bottle and Dan Murphy voucher are great ideas also! Honestly doesn't matter what you spend its always appreciated!! Even a card with a candy cane and I'm stoked to know that parents appreciate all the hard work I do!

    Last yr i did a cookie mix in a jar with the instructions on a little tag.

    This yr im thinking a dan murphys card is a great idea for DD's main teacher, not sure for the other teacher and two aide's though.
    Budget would be probably $20 for the main teacher and $15 for each of the others, at a stretch. Would prefer cheaper but being realistic.
    They have put in such a fight for my daughter this yr

    The yr before I bought nice xmas deco's for the teachers/aides trees and had DD put her name on the back/bottom. That was pretty cheap, might do that again

    What I wasnt into- but was really thankful for the gift- was candles and soaps. Ended up having wayyyyy to many every year and still have them in my cupboard.

    When I get given heaps of soaps or whatever I put then in a basket in my guest bathroom and label them "guest toiletries" I also am one of those people that take all the hotel toiletries (tooth brushes, shaving cream, mini tooth paste, shampoo etc) and put them in the basket.
    It's been great if people ever forget their toiletries or if you have an unexpected guest.
    I pull it out and put it on the bathroom bench when people stay so they know they are welcome to use it.

    Just an idea

    I've worked in childcare for many years, and I love getting chocolate! But always end up with way to much, my favourite presents have been Christmas tree decorations especially if they are personalized by your child, I love cards made by the children too, or with them signing their name, don't forget we love your children too!!!!
    All the other ideas people have mentioned have been great!
    But as a note don't forget the relief staff! Not just the educators in your child's room but the ones who cover breaks or rods they often get forgotten, and work just as hard!!
    Its just nice to be appreciated, makes my year.

    I'm thinking about doing up Ice Cream hampers but am starting to question whether its a good gift to receive. Was going to put assorted lollies, sprinkles, toppings, waffles and cones.
    Any thoughts? :-)

    My DS has a new teacher each year so we always buy the same thing. I buy a personalised Christmas bauble with Ms Smith of the front and Love DS 2013 on the back. They are always so thankful when they receive them
