Christmas present for kids teacher

So...my twins are 8 and in the same third grade class. They (we) always give a small present to their teacher...they seem to enjoy it and their teachers have (i think) always enjoyed it....this year i'm struggling with the whole gift idea thing....i have a couple thoughts, and i'd like to give a (kinda small) gift basket....here's what might go in it...
1. An ornament....it's a chalkboard that can be personalized with a message, like "Mrs. so and so is the best teacher ever, love, (my kids)
2. $25 gift card to...Walmart? or Visa? I like this teacher, but I don't really know her on a personal level, so I don't know if she likes coffee, or whatever restaurant....something that could be spent anywhere?
3. Do teachers really want school supplies as a gift? I could buy tons of markers and glue and post its, etc.....I understand that a lot of teachers spend a lot of their own money on classroom supplies, so i can see how these things would be welcome, but I want to give her something she enjoys too....i would totally get her a gift card to a day spa or something so she could get a nice massage or whatever, but that would be a bit out of my budget
Also, we're gonna give the  principal a present too....probably an ornament similiar to the one previously mentioned....it's a small Catholic school, so religious/holiday type things are acceptable...
any ideas? any teachers out there that say ewwww, none of that, give us THIS....???
any suggestions would be appreciated!
