Ok I have been reading about presents for teachers on another forum where many teachers are claiming they hate home made gifts and mugs etc, now my problem is, every year I buy DD's a mug and we fill it with all sorts of home made goodies, now I don't know what to do, I love her teachers (school, swimming and dancing) and I thought the personal touch was nice but will they really just toss it in the trash like some claim to do?
Add to that I have already brought everything and as a single mum can budget $10/teacher.

Stick to your pressies - it's about the giving not the recieving.
Maybe if you want to make it a bit different put your homemade goodies on a nice cake plate?

I am a teacher,and I personally love getting home cooked goodies at Xmas. I appreciate the costs people have this time of year. I would just do what you think is best,and really it's the thought that counts isn't it?

Thanks girls, that exactly what i thought, it's more the thought than the actual gift itself.
Just shocked some people an be so rude, especally in regards to presents from children.

My mum's a teacher and she loves the home made stuff, especially when the kids are involved. She loves the kids she teaches and loves things that remind her of them. Go ahead and give what you've planned. Give with a good grace, recieve with a good grace and hopefully others will do the same.

My husband is a teacher and he (& i, & our kids!!) love love love it when he gets a gift of goodies to eat! It is extremely thoughtful and i particularly appreciate the effort the child/mum has gone to. My husband especially feels really chuffed if he gets a gift from a student as its like the kids really appreciate the effort he puts in. Hes a high school teacher so a present makes up for being told to f off by other kids throughout the year! It really boosts his job satisfaction, self esteem etc. Good on you, dont change a thing.
