The home-made thread got me thinking, So what about teachers and Christmas?
 
Our plan this year was to bake a bunch of different goodies, package them up in festive tins, and pass them out to all my sons teachers. I didn't want to do a personalized ornament, and cannot afford to buy each of them something. And to be honest, I wanted do get something heartfelt and useful, and I doubt any five dollar gift would do that. I always loved the idea of baked goods but after reading the Halloween thread, I'm wondering if I should nix that idea lol! What would you do? Any teachers input would be great too!

Most people seem to be fine with taking baked goods from people they know. I'm sure majority of your studends parents would have no problem with it. Maybe you could send out a little questionair with the students to ask the parents if that is something they are fine with.

It would only be for the teachers. Thirteen in all! We are not allowed to pass out any food to the children ever.

Ah. I would assume other adults would be fine with it, since they know you.

I am a former elementary school music teacher. I really enjoyed the homemade Christmas treats my students brought me. I went more by the parent than the student. Little Johnny might be a serious nose picker, but his mom, who made the treats, appears to be very sanitary and health conscious.

As an alternative, if you sew, these tissue holders are sweet and use a small amount of scrap fabric, trim, and bias tape (or make your own.) http://vacuumqueen.blogspot.com/2008...ue-holder.html

That's all we ever did for my teachers in HS. A few big batches of different varieties of fudge, cookies, and truffles and those teachers were on cloud 9. :) And none of it was any "stuff" that was kitschy or would just end up being clutter. Although we did have one teacher who was allergic to chocolate (how sad... My life as I know it would be over!) and I think we got her some Yankee candles and one of those little
Bath and Body Works baskets.

That's what I usually do. I try to send a little something for the boys' teachers anytime bake cookies or anything, but at Christmas I try to make it a little more special. Last year I made peanut butter fudge and put it in a curfew bag, along with a handwritten note. I like to give something freeze-able or non-perishable at the holidays in case they get a ton of treats and don't want to eat them all in 2 days before it spoils.

I baked for each of kids' teachers and the office staff. They loved me, lol.
