Help - need ideas for my son's preschool teacher gifts...

Can't spend a ton of money and I have 5 or 6 people at my son's preschool to get something for. This is our 4th and last year there (my DD also went there as well)

This is what I have done in the past:
1) home made coco in a mug
2) candy dish with cookies and candies
3) hand lotion/hand sanitizer/picture ornament in a stalking
4) ????????

It can be homemade, but my time is super short right now... so I can't do anything to involved... Any ideas out there??? Thank you!!!

EDIT: We can't give gift cards.. they are considered the same as cash... state ethics law prohibit them from accepting cash/gift cards ;o(

  • A basket full of kitchen items. You can get them for cheap at Marshalls, or a candle center peice that yo can find at CVS or Walmart.

  • I just asked the exact same question of my friends on Facebook. Bath and Body stuff was a big one. Ornaments. Candles (you can nice ones at Rite Aid for about $9.00)..

  • I usually make chocolates for the teachers..I just make different kinds of bark because it is the easiest. I put it in since gift bags.I also remember a teacher telling me that they liked getting a note or picture from their students because it means something to them. One year I did Christmas ornaments for the teachers.

    Good Luck

  • I just go to bath and Body Works. I get 1 hand cream for each teacher. It's enough. They are usually on sale. I wrap it up cute.

  • How about some kind of nice bag to carry things in to and from school. Not just a bag, but something nice. Candles are always nice, if they are nice ones. I have gotten cute little things for my car visors with sayings on them about driving safe your family loves you, or a pretty little Christmas ornament to remember your child.

  • if you have a dollar store near you or go to target and check there dollar bin, you can found some really nice stuff for just a dollar. I got my son's speech teacher a snow globe from the dollar store and a nice candle holder with candle for a friend from target's dollar bin.
