Valentine's gift for teachers *Updated*

I need some ideas for Valentine's Day gifts for my son's three teachers. I want to stay away from candy because I am assuming they will get plenty of that. Also, we did gift cards for Christmas so I want to do something different. Any suggestions?

So, after looking around at several different stores, I finally come up with an idea to give a small snack basket. I wanted something that would be useful, but not just junk (or junk food). As a substitute teacher, I know that it can be rather long in between breakfast and lunch depending on the time of lunch so I normally carry a few snacks with me just in case. I got a nice basket and filled it with all sorts of goodies- popcorn, granola bars, crackers and cheese, trail mix, tea and coco mixes, etc. I decorated the basket a bit and they loved it.

How much are you looking to spend on each?

We're not doing Valentines gifts this year. But when we did the Christmas ones, I took Kyra to Hobby Lobby, told her the amount she had to spend on each then just followed her around the store. The gifts were a bit goofy, but since they were going to be from her it only made sense for her to pick them out.

About $10-15 each.

a coffee mug w/ flavored coffees or teas, a pretty pen or pencil, rubber stamp w/ ink pad,  pretty containers (teachers always have things they need to store).
