    Forget the gift I would like a personal note from a student or parent more than anything, else.

    I agree 100%. We aren't allowed to accept gifts at all whatever our role within the council. It would mean the world to get a letter of appreciation

    now our council in hampshire allows giving gifts, poor teachers normally end up with a ton of chocolates as this is what most kids buy them

    in the store i work in we have lots of gifts for teachers, little angel ornaments with signs saying 'best teacher' or holding books, magnets with phrases, metal book marks, picture frames etc but by far the most popular teacher gift os sale....the stress apple ...it's a red apple squeezy stress ball lol

    I always used to get my children to make a special cake box and we would bake biscuits and small cakes for the teachers at the end of the year, then they would go in the boxes tied with a ribbon and a personal thank you from my daughters or son.

    Our council has gone into overdrive with everything! We have to give ny gift accepted, if it would offend not to, to the mayors fund which amongst other things is used to buy gift vouchers for a supermarket, for the elderly at Christmas. The elderly in turn give them to their families to spend as they don't want them

    WOW! Eng that is a shame that the students can't give their teachers a gift of appreciation. Teachers work hard and play a very important role in our children's lives-they deserve gifts of any kind.

    And you wonder why some of us are just a little bit sick of the nanny state that we live in being so politically correct all the time. We get a little bit fed up with the Big Brother is Watching You feeling.

    I agree our teacher's work **** (sorry) hard with lovely little kids until they get to about 11-12 and then they have to cope with obnoxious brats after that. Why can't the accept token gifts from children who just want to say Thank You. After all manners cost nothing and the memory is everlasting.
