At my school, since it is a gift coming from another adult, it is not seen as a big deal/issue.
I understand. Just different here. Although I'm not saying someone would necessarily report you... We are a dry county and perhaps that makes a slight difference.
Our music teacher brought in a bottle of Baileys for all the teachers on the last day of school as a thank you for assistance with the Christmas concert.
1 bottle? As is he brought it in and they all had a drink at the school? Or a bottle for each?
That makes sense.

I say enjoy the gift card! I have a teacher's child in my class this year. She teaches fourth grade at another school in my district. For Halloween the dad handed me a gift bag after school. Inside was a bottle of nice wine with a thank you card. I agree the child shouldn't bring it to school, but outside of school I see no problem with it if it's done in a tasteful way.
A bottle. Maybe a couple of bottles to share.

That would DEF not fly around here.

I am unsure why she declined it other than it was from a second grader and alcohol on school property is against the law.

Turning down a gift is bad manners in just about every culture. If you're reasonably sure it was not a big hardship for the family, thank them very graciously and then enjoy.
Best thing I ever got was chocolate. Any more job openings in your neighborhood?
