My kids always give their middle and high school teachers the ring pretzels with the kisses in the middle. (Check out the What do you plan to do for Christmas thread for other ideas.) Here's that link:

Basically, you take the ring pretzels (or snaps if you can't find rings) and place an unwrapped kiss in the middle. Bake in the oven at 275 degrees for 2-3 mins until you can press the kiss flat. Really, it's no more than a few mins. Then press an m and m into the center of each. Refrigerate for 5-10 mins and they are done.

Here's the link from the website: http://recipes.quickcooking.com/eRMS...cid=9418&r_d=y

We package them in the Gladware plastic containers w/the blue lids. They are 4-5/box for a few bucks. We wrap them in snowflake ribbon and make stamped tags. One good thing about these containers is that they fit in the teachers' school mailboxes in case your child can't hand-deliver all of them. My kids had 8-10 teachers each year.

My kids always receive thank you notes for these. A few male teachers have confessed that the treat never made it home since they ate it all before they could share it!

I am also a preschool teacher. What I like most is something made from the child. A card, a letter of thanks, a small ornament. If you wanted to actually purchase something, a gift card with a greeting card made by the child would be perfect. Preschool teachers appreciate it when the child fully participates in the gift-giving, and making the card is the best way to show that. It doesn't have to be perfect.
