When I was at school, I don't especially remember the whole epic gifts to staff thing, ever. It was more that they were teachers because they liked to teach. It was their job and they got a wage for it, just like the cashier at the supermarket and the teller at the bank etc.
Regardless, as it's now 'the done thing' Thing Two and I made some chocolate and vanilla marble fudge and some double chocolate cookies (last year we took brownies in, as in the chocolate ones.....not small girls in brown dresses and an array of bad songs)
The pictures are somewhat crap, mainly due to The Husbands phone as my (also crap but not quite as crap) phone typically had a flat battery. They looked a much nicer colour and far more tempting in the flesh.
& now starteth the 6 weeks holidays.......where's the Valium? Make mine a double.
