Valentine's Day gift for teacher and teacher assistants?

I need some ideas for a small valentine's day gift for my son's teacher and assistant teachers. Does anyone have any ideas? I thought about a gift card but I want to make it a bit more personable. TIA!

  • Get something that is helpful for them to have, I got a gift of a lunch kit so that I could pack my lunches without worry it had a salad bowl with separate spot for dressing, a sandwich holder and thermos. Teachers appreciate things like that more than food, or candy/

  • Does the teacher have a class wish list? Something for the classroom can be a big help-- supplies of some sort. Teachers end up buying a lot of stuff with their personal money for the classroom.

    you could do a magnet, a stationary set, stickers, pencils, a coffee mug, or some combination of them depending on how much you want to spend

  • A gift I saw on I think was a bottle of hand lotion and a cut out of your kids hands. Tape them to the outsides of the lotion and write on them, Mrs. so and so, You deserve a hand! Happy Valentines Day! I thought it was very cute and am doing that for my kids teachers.

  • I am a daycare teacher and I think if the gift is something that the kids made it is more special
