Nobody give me presents for doing my job.
Nor me, and nor would I want one - I'm being paid. I prefer a heartfelt 'thanks' from parents of kids I'm paid to work with. I second the gifting as over the top.
I'm encouraging my kids to give gifts to people who have elected to spend their time and energy mentoring and supporting them throughout the year, because they like them, not because they're paid to teach them (From sporting clubs).
And it will be wine.
ETA I've been completely lead astray by PP - Yes, OP, the Smiggle thing would probably be fine if you're that way inclined! Sorry for rant.
