Question about giving teachers holiday gifts

I have a silly question about giving gifts to teachers for the holidays. My DS is in kindergarten, and I'm unsure how to go about getting the gifts to the teachers. Do I send them in with DS in his backpack? Do I go up to school and hand-deliver them (my DS takes the bus, so I'm not normally up at school)? Last year in pre-school, I gave the teachers their gifts when picking up my DS, but now with him in kindergarten, I'm not sure what to do...how do you get your gifts to the teachers? TIA!!

I would just put them in his backpack and make sure they're labeled Chat Icon

My kids usually have at least one parent invited activity at this time of year so I bring it then and give it to my kid to hand to the teacher Chat Icon

My DD is in Kindergarten too. I have my DD bringing a gift bag daily and handing out gifts from the gift bag. I gave to the special area teachers too so on Monday she brought in her gifts for gym because that is her schedule. Yesterday were gifts for the Librarian and her assistant, etc.

I'm bringing them in on Friday. The kids are having a holiday sing thing. If not, I would have dropped DS off with them. It's too much to fit in his backpack. If you're doing GC's you can probably send them in with DC.

This has been my dilemma too. Tom is DS's room holiday party. The class moms collected the gifts for the teacher and aides in the class. DS has made cards for the teachers and specials. I hope he will have time to give it to the specials after the party-otherwise, I just plan to leave the cards and goodie tray in the school office.

Re: Question about giving teachers holiday gifts

Thanks for all the responses. We are doing gift cards, so I will be sending them in his backpack tomorrow. I am just so worried that the cards will get misplaced. I sent him in with a card/gift card for his speech teacher today, so we'll see how that goes.
Thanks again!!

My DD is having her holiday class party tomorrow and parents were invited so I will bring them with me tomorrow and have DD hand them to them.

DD also takes the bus to KG. She took them in a plastic bag to school. No problems.
