Wine.

They were already inundated with chocolate by the time we were organised enough to buy gifts. They all seemed pleased too original.gif

Those personailised reward stickers that someone on here said awhile ago about in another thread, were a big hit original.gif

I gave my DS's classroom teacher a set of candles from Dusk.

I gave his learning support co-ordinator, and aide, handmade bamboo cotton dishcloths :-)

Christmas hampers.  Also, heartfelt written cards thanking my kids' teachers, teacher assistant and learning support coordinator for all their hard work and dedication to helping my kids achieve their potential and helping them love school again after a disastrous first semester at another school.

My kids' teachers are wonderful!

Great idea.  What type of bamboo fabric do you use and where do you get it from? (assuming that you make them yourself)

My DS has made handprint flowers with "Thank you for helping me to grow" written across the top.

Looks like this

Nothing this year. I remembered to pay one class rep the thoughtless $5, but forgot for another.

Sad to say, gratitude-fatigue wore me out.

I couldn't even make it into class on the last morning for one of my kid's classes.

Gift cards (bookstore / camera store depending on interest / hobby) in a pot.  Chocolates scattered around.  Pot looks like this http://itsallaboutty.blogspot.com.au/2010/...your-tummy.html

Thank you :-)

I do make them myself.  I buy the bamboo cotton from Spotlight - it's about $4 a ball, and makes 1 & 1/2 dishcloths.  

This is what they end up looking like.

I'm out of ideas this year, hoping subbing here will give me some ideas.

What if they have, roughly, five different teachers each?

Personalised stationery - little notebooks/notepads with "From the Desk of Mrs blah blah" on it. They seemed to be a hit!

For DS school (first year secondary) I made a lot of cake pops in Christmas colours and some looked like plum puddings along with a thank you card.

For DD (year 4) a $50 movie voucher, the teacher I mainly work with a $50 fuel voucher (her partner just moved a four hour drive away to start a new business so lots of driving, $50 movie voucher for DS bus driver (long story but the bus driver made DS feel 'safe' and it was such a long drive twice a day!). Candles and wine for the other teachers I work with.

For the staff I work with (well not anymore, I'm moving schools next year) I'm going to make cakes and cake pops for the staff development day!

We gave her a couple of Graeme Base hardcover books for the classroom and a box of chocolates.

Nail polish, Christmas ornament, toiletry pack, music download, hot chocolate mug, roses chocolates.

Where did you get these? too late for this year but would love it for next.

A mixture of Christmas decos, chocolates and notebooks.  Packaged in cellophane - everything looks more impressive wrapped in cellophane with loads of ribbon.

I bought a nice rectangular basket and put a bottle of Jansz bubbly, a cute mug, some Haighs chocolates and some personalised stickers.  And a heartfelt card.  She loved it  original.gif

A set of Envirosax fabric bags in a gorgeous print and some handmade bits and pieces yet to be decided.

For DS's main teacher, we got her the Where Children Sleep book and a card.  For his other 4 teachers, I made these and filled them with Cadbury favourites chocolates.
