Suggested Tip: Gift/Gift Cards

Check with your child's school to see if they have a gift-giving policy. Experts say to skip monetary gifts, as it may look like you're bribing the teacher for better treatment.

Instead, give a coffee or book shop gift card for around $20. You can also get together with other parents and give one for a larger amount. Accompany the gift with a handwritten note from your child.
