Gift ideas for multiple therapists/staff?

Ok so outside of the group gift collection for classroom teacher and classroom aides, I need ideas on what to get for my sons other therapists and staff that work with him. This totals to 13 people between school therapists he sees 2/3xa week, bus driver/matron, home aba therapist that comes 3x a week, respite staff that he sees 2x a month, and religion class teachers (once or 2x a month schedule varies). Ideas on how to show appreciation but not break the bank? I was thinking of doing something like $5 DD giftcards, maybe a little more for the therapists that work with him more often, but not sure if that seems too cheap?

BJs has a 4 pack of godiva chocolates in a mug for $20. Each are individually wrapped.

Big Lots has really nice bath/body sets that are $5 but look more expensive.

I know everyone like to receive a "gift" but no matter what you give (big or small), many of them are happy to receive a heartfelt note. The note outlasts the gift.

I am struggling too. I have regular school staff , he also attends a respite but he only interacts with a couple of providers but there are like 15 providers there, and I don’t know what to do..

My son gets services in school

And I’m a related service provider in the school where I work

I know from both sides

Original poster-A $5 dollar gift card to Starbucks or something like that is plenty fine.

Other question with the school staff-send in some bagels one morning for breakfast. Maybe other parents would want to chip in?

Please don’t feel you have to go crazy. It’s a thank you token gift. Not meant to be a life changing event. Appreciation really has nothing to do with money spent. We get paid to work and we don’t go to work for presents
