Teachers given holidays and jewellery as Christmas gifts
As schools break up for the Christmas holidays many pupils will give their teacher a present.
But it seems the days when a box of chocolates would do are gone.
According to one of the big department stores, parents now spend an average of £50 on presents for their children's teachers.
Some have even been known to give really extravagant gifts like match tickets or holidays.
