    On another note, if you are going the coffee cup/alcohol/food route, be sure the people do actually drink them/don't have allergies, which I'm sure you have

    In my experience teachers like gifts made by the kids.

    I've never been asked to put in that much. I personally wouldn't mind but if someone has a few kids it's a lot of money. Most classes only ask max $10 per family. You know your class parents better though.

    Sorry lots of posts from me but lots of kids at school.

    This is one thing my sons preprimary class is doing

    IMG_1478579612.468006.jpg

    Every child does a few drawings on a5 size paper with crayons. 1 picture is dots 1 swirls or lines and the last is an image of their choice. You then cut out shapes and transform it into the attached. It can then be framed.

    That way it's one image from the entire class.

    DS1 classes from the last few years we've all done individual gifts. We do the same thing each year. A pewter Xmas dec with the year and DS name on it that we it comes out each year for the teacher to remember. I saw his reception teacher a few weeks ago (she's at another school now). And said she still gets it out for her tree each year. This year we are still going to do it even though we've had the same teacher for 2 years. Plus I'm getting her a couple bottles of wine

    Our class normally does $20-25 (per teacher) from each student for a voucher etc. I usually put in $20 and also get them something smaller from just us as well which might still be a voucher eg to their favourite shop whereas class voucher is often something fairly safe eg myer.

    Yep I keep forgetting most other people have other kids and teachers to buy for!

    I might just put it out there and give everyone the option with a few money options and see what they say, I'm the class parent so I organise most of our school things !

    Yes, always a combined gift here. $10 or $15 each. Usually a restaurant voucher for say $100 plus an art work with all their names on it. Ps: almost everyone still have a small sentimental xmas gift and a personal card too. As an individual gift we usually do xmas decorations with a card, others do chocolates or biscuits etc.
