Me mammy said one of the best & funniest 'gifts' she got was a card with a Tea bag and a kit-kat in iside it with the words - "you got me through now have a break - you earned it!"

She's a secondary school teacher for nearly 30 years

Small and I came back with a spinning picture frame and a stress ball!

I expect that will work.

Small wanted to get Sir a 'sympathy' card, cos hes a Leeds supporter, but I managed to talk him into a thanyou teacher one....

*phew*

If we'd been more organised we usually make stuff. My sister (a nursery teacher) says that they're the presents she likes best!

Mini Chrstmas cakes are usually a winner (made in a clean small baked-bean can or similar), and 'decorated' by the youngster. I did them with my mum, and I seem to remember that one year I decorated them with mazipan dinosaurs....

I never would have thought of baking a cake in a tin. Fantastic idea...........

Its just a cute idea for small cakes. Something different for birthdays.

If you want to make cute little cakes, another option that I was given once was a little fruit cake made in a little terracotta pot (new not used!).
It would also have the added advantage as a teachers present in that you could paint it to decorate it.

They make quite nice pressies for people who live on their own - my Nan always used to get one!

Different.
As we journey through life, discarding baggage along the way, we should keep an iron grip, to the very end, on the capacity for silliness.
