My son's school has a strict No Gift policy. So, even if parents send gifts, teachers cannot accept. Im happy with this policy. On special occasions my child makes a card and gives to the teachers and mausis that help.

it's nice to give gifts as a greeting card or a thankyou card by our kids to their teachers ..

Being a teacher, I can tell you it's very difficult to let a student down when he/she brings a gift for the teacher with utmost love. They feel that the teacher doesn't like them and that's why refusing. But as a rule and as a part of school policy, teachers aren't allowed to accept gifts. Holiday gifts is something new. Students do get gifts on teachers day and on any teacher's birthday. I have never accepted anything beyond a greeting card or flowers but on the day of my farewell, I couldn't refuse any of my kids. So I took whatever they brought out of love and have treasured all of their gifts. Gifting isn't a bad idea as long as it's free of caste, cultural or status bias. Students can be encouraged to express their love and gratitude for teachers in other ways too.
