Do you have a TKMAX near you. They have loads of lovely bags of fudge, hot chocolate, different selections of chocolates, glass jars of preserves, soaps etc. perfect for lots of little gifts.
Or else can you go to a fair or market and buy a Christmas decoration each.

When my DD was in nursery I bought her care workers a lovely re-usable type bag , they loved them!

I just wrapped a small box with festive paper & put in a box each of tea & coffee bags, bag of m&s chocs and a pack of m&s xmas pudding biscuits. I do this each year for all 6 staff members to share.

We've given our teachers a M&S sleigh treat set to share in the teachers lounge - it was a lovely cardboard sleigh with four different 'present' boxes, each with a different edible treat (chocolate truffles, mini gingerbread men and the like). They looked good, were half price, and there's nothing to have to find a home for when eaten☺️
They seemed to go down well

Nice big fattening gooey cake for the staff room a couple of days before the holidays.

All your ideas sound thoughtful. I am a teacher and it's lovely to receive a little gift at this time of year. My best pressies have been hand made by the children or grown up things like wine, chocolates and lotions/potions. Vouchers are also fabulous! (Sometimes the parents club together). Flowers and plants can be tricky if the recipient is going away. In our school we have loads of goodies in the staff room already, and limited days to consume them all. Thank you for thinking about your DCs teachers!

Mini bottles of wine, lip balm, mini purse from sales, small perfume such as copies from next or M&S, car air freshners( my ds picked these one year). I steer away from sweets as I think they must get loads of these

Tree decoration. I'm a teacher and have several from kids. I love them because it feels really personal.

DS told me his teacher kept losing her rubber so we got a nice one from Cath Kidson £1.50 and a notebook and pencil to match

Voucher for a coffee shop. Easy to buy, easy to stick in with a Christmas card. Job done!
