I think you have a great idea! It’s a good way to support the cure and give a really cute gift. They will also love the peppermint bark..yum!

We never have much money for the holidays so we just buy picture frames and give everyone our Christmas photos that we get every year. It’s fairly cheap and it’s something the families like. I think you idea is really nice. As long as they don’t look cheap they should be fine. Candy is always something people like! lol

Do you really have to buy gifts for all those people? I have many friends who are teachers and they would be very happy not to end up with all sorts of things they will never wear, use etc etc.

They have told me they would much rather get a hand written note of thanks, perhaps giving an example of how their teaching has impacted your child in a positive way.

While I love the idea of a gift that supports a charity, I personally do not like getting knick-knack-y things that I know I will never use because I find it wasteful (environmentally).  Food items/consumables make the most sense to me.  Or in this case, I would appreciate a little note saying that you had donated to breast cancer charities. 

But maybe I’m in the minority… I really do love the sentiment!  (Sorry to be a downer…)

That’s really interesting.  In NZ it would be a bad thing to buy a gift for your kids teacher.  That would go into the “conflict of interest” basket.  Is it not seen as a bribe or something?
Our govt has very funny ideas 😉
