I'm a pampered chef consultant and I always give the teachers a stainless steel whisk and put hershies kisses in side and make a card that says "Merry Whiskmas" and the teachers LOVE it! She is in Kindergarten now and I did that for all her daycare and pre school teachers the last 5 years
Can't beat $10 for the whisk and a few dollars for a bag of kisses. Makes for a great inexpensive gift
GIFT CARDS! Either to places you know they like or generic ones (i.e. visa) in any denomination that you feel comfortable with and fits your budget!

I really like this idea - I think this is what I'll do. Then they can either get something they need for the classroom or pamper themselves. I think even $5 is good - they know you have a limited budget, but several families giving $5 can really help with classroom stuff or for a treat for themselves.
If you know other parents, a big gift card is good. I have no creativity, so I usually have the kids make a card and put in a $10 gift card. I figure they can trade GCs with other teachers if they don't like what they got. The kid's card is the sentimental part.
I know lots of teachers, and anything teacher-y is likely they already have. Stuff they can eat/use up is good. Ie foods if you know they like the foods and like homemade soaps or stuff if they like spa-y stuff.
