To buy a present for or not?

My daughter is in grade one. We got her teacher a pretty necklace for Christmas. Thing is is that she is also in after school care at the school where 3 ladies take care of her and 20+ kids. Do I need to get those ladies a gift or is a card enough? I would like to give to everyone but just can't afford to. Please tell me what you think? Thanks and happy holidays.

  • If a card is what's in your budget, then that is the way to go. If you plan to do any baking before school is out you could always send them each a small plate of cookies or other goodies.

  • I like the ornament Idea. something small! get some popsicle sticks and make some snow flake ornaments. glue them together and paint them white with glitter and some ribbon. May cost a few dollars but she can make many of them.,

  • i would have gotten all 4 ladies a card and attached maybe candycane to the envelope and let my daughter give it to them... Thats just me i say that because all 4 teachers will be treated equally since they are at the same school.

  • I think your afterschool teachers will be very happy with a card and a thank you for dedicating their time to your daugher. (c:
