Oh that's also a great idea!! I was going to get a box of cupcakes made with a Christmas/dance theme as there are a couple of teachers so thought a box could be shared. I'm loving the ideas your all giving me though, very different!! Thanks!!

When I was actively teaching, some of the things I was given that I really enjoyed:


A hand made card


Hand knitted/crocheted scarf


A beautiful aqua silk scarf


Hand knitted slippers


Hand made tote bag


Anything hand made - including cupcakes


Satin covered hangars for sweaters


gift card to a dance shop


Fruit and nut platter


A beautiful dance figerine


A basket of freshly picked blueberries from the student's garden


A potted plant that I could put in my garden if I wished


A gift card to an  ice cream shop


A dance calendar for a wall, desk or purse  (but make sure the pictures are worthy - not sloppily done by non-dancers}


A pad of memo notes with or without my name on them


A homemade apple pie


One very little girl sang a song to me that she had obviously worked on  (I loved it!)




Things I didn't enjoy (although, of course, I appreciated the sentiment):


foot bath - too bulky to store - too much trouble to set up, then wash out, dry and store


a bottle of wine - I never drink alcohol - 


Any card or picture of a hippo in a tutu  - it was cute 1000 times and 39 yrs ago.


Coffee or tea selection - but they included caffeine - so were unuseable 


Listening to someone tell me they were too busy to buy a gift - I didn't expect a gift  - you don't need an excuse and I don't want to listen to it - feeling terribly embarrassed for both of us.  



I often found it was not the gift but the manner of giving it which made it memorable.

Thank you both some great ideas, we have done a few of these in the past but one of my favourites was a personalised notebook we got for dd school teacher, he does his own comic book and we managed to get a comic themed personalised notebook which he was

If I had a pound for every candle Ive ever received I could retire!

I like wine!

But I do also like getting plants and I christen them after the people who give them! A christmas cactus from two years ago is flowering magnificently at the moment.

Home made cards and drawings are always appreciated too.
