    I'm a teacher and some of the good presents I have received are:
    Coffee vouchers ($10 ones are good enough for coffee and cake)
    Hand creams
    Movie voucher
    Plants
    One year my class teamed up
    And got me a voucher for a day spa
    I have received tea leaves and nice ground coffee before

    I didn't like getting mugs because none of them would match! I got some many boxes of favourites last year that people that came to visit us over the break got a box to take home with them.

    My favourite thing was just to get a nice card with a nice message inside....

    It's a nice idea to do handmade gifts but I remember one year I got four painted pots.... I ran out of space in my home.

    Maybe find out what the carers/teachers are into... For example me I love dangly earrings, the louder the better, maybe pay attention to that and see if you can find something unique

    A question to teachers...I read one year of a mum getting personalized stickers done gor the teacher thst had for example. ..Well Done from miss X etc. For her to use in her students workbooks. I thought that was a good idea but is it kind of like giving a mum a toaster?

    My mum always gave new pillows. My dad worked for a pillow company.

    What about looking at your child the movie star or tokens of love on Facebook. I have seen ones with little apple pendants in the centre and you can enscribe a personal message and your child's name. Looked special but is obviously a little on the xy side.

    I'm a teacher and I love getting Christmas decorations for my tree. Such a lovely thing to remember a child by that can be kept forever!

    I give 2 movie tickets and a box of chocolate along with a card that DS has written in himself.

    Last year DS had 3 kinder teachers so it ended up being a bit exxy - thought this year would be better but they have their main class and then rotate between the 3 prep teachers for maths, literacy and numeracy so it will end up being the same - doh.

    For ds1s prep teacher last year we did a gift in a jar. Just put the dry ingredients for biscuits in the jar in a pretty layer, attach the directions and a little message. She really liked it

    This year I'm looking our for a nice bangle, I've noticed ds1s teacher likes them.

    Great ideas ladies! Keep them coming

    oohhh... I seen some cute santa hand dough ornaments on pinterest! The palm was his head/face, fingers his beard and thumb his hat.

    I just remembered my Mum used to do our teachers a platter of xmas fruit each year. Apparently they often took pride of place as a centre piece. What about that? I could even include a candle/ornament decorated by ds?

    As a teacher I have had these once as a gift-one of the best gifts I have ever been given. I really liked them because they were useful and it showed thought behind the gift
