    For a £1 box of chocolates, then dont you think wrapping is a bit over the top?
    A card would have been nice?
    :lol: when you put it that way, I suppose so. Didn't know what the price was, to be fair.

    It would have been nice (especially with something of a personal, yet non-creepy message) but :dontknow: it's the thought that counts!

    A card is stupid in my opinion! I haven't and won't buy her a card so forget it, how is it over the top to wrap it?

    I have no choice now but to give them to her directly.

    So I'll stay behind after the lesson and give them? Or do it another way?

    Milk tray was just a idea, if you go to page 3 I have bought her some Thorntons Moments.

    She'll just want to leave the room because that's what she does after each lesson to go for a break, I can't stop her?

    Tomorrow is the big day and I have no idea what to do.

    Tuesday didn't go well (did but didn't), didn't have the chance to do it.

    Going back to the shops tomorrow, the Thorntons Moments will go to the students on the course and staff from other classes on the same department. I'll buy my maths teacher something 'special' tomorrow, so which ever is the highest price then I guess?

    I go to college and have been doing English and Maths, my Maths teacher is the nicest person I have ever met really, She's really helped me out and always been really nice to me she called me lovely in the staff room when we had a chat about how the course was going.

    I'm a guy, 20 and she is 50 to get that out of the way straight away haha, I feel it would be wrong for me not to buy her anything, and right to buy her something I am thinking of a cadbury milk tray (Type in Google in you're not sure) they are a selection of chocolates just to say thanks, so What I want to know is, would it be right to buy her a milk tray? I'll knock on the staff room on my last day and just say thanks for all the help, and I'm bought this for you to say thanks but I don't want it to come across the wrong way (I don't think it will) I asked my mate and he said she might feel embarrassed? Another mate said she will appreciate it and my thoughtfulness?



    So please comment and will look forward to hearing your thoughts, please be honest this means a lot to me
    I did this for all my teachers at the end of A2
    not chocolates though, the gifts were all different, e.g. alcohol for a teacher who i knew loved to drink.
    She will definitely appreciate it, think of how good it would feel to have one of your students show you how much they appreciate what you've done for them!

    She won't be expecting it too which is even more better I suppose! Although I have heard women don't like surprises but everyone's different.

    If I buy her something expensive say between £5 and £10, can I wrap the chocolates? Thinking of wrapping them with wrapping paper obviously but would be a little strange to her if I wrapped some chocolates worth lower than say £3?

    I would say yes to the chocolates and get a thank you card (also write in thank you card to show your appreciation) . I got my teacher card and chocolates and she was happy!

    You can buy pre-wrapped chocolates, and they look a lot more nicer too (sainsburys do their own brand wrapped ones - which is the 'taste the difference' range) its a bit more expensive £10 but looks better.

    Unless you're gonna give her a rose to go along with the chocolates than I doubt she'd think you're ' making a move ' on her lol ??

    No idea who told you women don't like surprises, I got the best reaction to my gifts from women.

    I wouldnt say wrap the chocolates, if you're spending £5-10 anyway, maybe go with the standard chocolates and buy her something more lasting? could be something like a mug? have a look on amazon, you could get a maths-related mug, something funny
