My friend owns a candle making business and she sells gorgeous air diffusers. They look lovely and only cost $12. We have 5 preschool teachers to buy for so she did a deal with me and gave me a discount for buying 5. My little girl chose the colours and smells. Then i wrote a card for each of them saying how wonderful they are in their job and that they made my daughter so excited and happy to be there each week- along with w favourite memory/activity of hers that they did. It isnt much- but my budget is tight. My little girl decorated the cards and did a drawing for them. We didnt wrap them but let the teachers choose which one they liked the smell of best. Sometimes somple is best. They all loved it but i think they appreciated the cards and pictures best.

We don't do money but we did get our daughters year 1 teacher a 1hr massage voucher, it cost $85 but boy does she deserve it!

We have 3 teachers in our class. I asked parents to donate $1, $2 or $3 per teacher as their budget allows or bring one two or three small gifts. . Some people gave $5 per teacher. Others gave small gifts like soap to put in a basket we will make up. this allows for regifting stuff or buying bargains.

OP I wish I could but don’t really know the other parents we’ll enough.

$20-30. It’s worth communicating with other parents and maybe getting vouchers for the same place so that he/she can use them combined and get something bigger.

OP I wish I could do this but I’m new to the centre and I feel like the other mums won’t appreciate it.such a good idea though thank you,
