    I am considering one particular present for a close teacher of mine...

    Here's the details: he is an older male teacher, and i have known him for the last 7 years. The last two we have got a lot closer, and are very good friends. As a thankyou blah blah present, the main one i thought is a signed football shirt (he is a die hard fan of this team), by all the players..I think it would mean a lot to him...

    Money isn't an issue, but what do people think of the present?

    Thanks in advance guys.. xx

    No reason why not if you can get it. Sure he'd be thrilled.

    I hope so, i would leave it in his office as secret.. I just don't want it to come across as OTT, or something else...

    Thanks expression..

    perhaps it's just my mind, but when i gave my teachers presents, i thought they might think i fancy them - but that's just my mind being inappropriate at the most inopportune moment

    If you think about it, your going to all this trouble to get a gift to say thanks or whatever. He's going to know you went to all this effort and then run ... :eek: . But i think it is a nice idea.

    Still, he has to contend with what his collegues think. Also, does he have a significant other? It might be awkward for him to explain such an expensive present.

    anyone can throw money around.. I think small and thoughtful is a better way to go.
