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.
