My daughter asked me to make a special card from her class to their form teacher who had his birthday almost when the school ended in June. Lets just say that he got really suprised when he saw what they got him - an apple watch. Guess they liked him a lot. ;) No parents were involved at all and the students thought of this themselves and saved the money together during the year.
Directly when they told me about the gift I knew what I wanted to do but it took me a while to figure out how to make the watch but I think it turned out good in the end.
