    Xmas Gift for teachers?

    Anyone have suggestions as to what to get for teachers? I got Occitaine lotion sets for my som's K1 teachers last year but was thinking it may be more practical to get gift certs?

    If gift certs are a good idea, would Dymocks book certs be better, or something like Zara or H&M certs be more popular?? Also what would be a good dollar amount?? (im planning to give to my son's main K2 teacher and 2 EAs. other suggestions??

    Thanks!

    gift certs are a good idea, just make sure it is enough $$ to actually buy something from the shop!

    I was thinking around $300 each? (Thing is, there are like 3 class teachers plus 2 other teachers I would like to give these certs to.)

    But is $300 too little for Zara/H&M?? Should I stick to Dymocks where they will definitely be able to get something without adding more money??

    I would say it is too much! Somethibg small is appropriate. Body wash/ hand cream etc is always appreciated. If my student's parents gave me gift certs i would feel thankful but terrible as it really isn't necessary.
    Just my 2ยข.

    Really? I did the body wash sets last year but didn't really feel like they were useful. (Plus I actually up spending over $400 each in order to get a decent set!)

    Would $200 of Dymocks or HMV vouchers be more suitable?

    I like chocolates, body washes (but nothing too fancy)....but really, it is a gift and while greatly appreciated, not necessary. If i received a gc from dymocks i would probably use it to buy books for the school/classroom and not myself.

    I agree with carang! Gifts aren't necessary / expected by teachers! Even a $100 gift voucher would be greatly appreciated. When parents gave my expensive gifts I actually felt a bit uncomfortable about it.
