You could always get them an amazon gift card. I think everybody uses amazon these days. And it gives them a chance to really get something for personal use rather than being connected to school (gas to get to work or school supplies at staples). Or even Starbucks gift card. If you don’t want to do the gift card route, you could always put together a gift basket. A basket collection of chocolates and candies. Or if you know the teacher will appreciate it - a collection of bath bombs, face masks, lotion, hand sanitizer, soap.. From my memory of school, there was always one parent or a couple parents that would contact all the parents in the class to try to pool money together to get something big for the teacher. Or at least pool ideas and money to put together a gift basket of the teachers favorite things. So at least all the parents and kids are involved.
