What would be an appropriate gift for a teacher?

My son's last day of school is tomorrow, and between the 2 of them, and one being held back in kindergarten, we have had the same kindergarten teacher for 3 years. I love her to no end, she has really become a friend to nme, and she has even helped me alot during the year with problems in my oldest's 1st grade class. She is truley an amazing teacher. We are changing schools next year (whole other story) and I am wanting to do something special for her, we got her a Thank You card, and had the whole family sign it, but I am wanting to do something more. Any ideas? Also, my oldest's teacher has been nothing but a headache and IMO shouldnt ever be allowed around kids again in her life to put things lightly, am I obligated to get her something though too since I am for the kindergarten teacher? And if not do I hide the fact that we got her something, they are right across the hall and not sure f she iwll find out anyway.
