We usually give a present to our kids’ teachers, leaders, etc. Most other families seem to do this too so it almost feels like we HAVE to give rather than do it because we want to.
This year we’re torn – there’s someone we don’t want to give a gift to but it feels rude and wrong to not give something.
Will the teacher feel insulted to not get anything? That isn’t our intent.
Is it giving the wrong message (to ourselves at least) to give a present we don’t want to give?
