Leaving gift for staff team

So, I'm off to a new post in January and I want to thank my amazing team appropriately.
I really don't know what to do, whether to get a joint gift- was thinking tassimo type machine for our fairly non existent staff room, with lots of pods- or individual small gifts- like scented candle, wine or something. There are about 25 staff. My budget is about £75.
What would make you feel appreciated by your departing leader?

I think a joint gift is a lovely idea, but with individual notes to them possibly?

Definitely coffee machine or cheese toastie maker or waffle makes with packet of mix? Or plug in massage cushion?

Thanks ladies! Joint gift it is then. Great ideas makeit.

Not a waffle maker. They are a bastard to clean!

I bought a big teapot when I left my last job - we all used to row about whose turn it was to make the tea so it seemed apt wink

Toaster? I love the coffee machine idea though.

I've done a bit of research- Tassimo pod machine reduced to £45 then I will get a bundle of mixed hot drinks for £30. Should keep them going for a while!
I'm going to handmake some thank you cards and write a personal note inside for each person, as Littlefish suggested. Today is the perfect day, as it's tipping down with rain!
