How about making a donation to the charity of her choice.

How about a large gift basket? Base the contents on what she likes, baking, mixes, cake or cookie or muffin etc- frosting- special pans- decorations: cooking- asst'd pancake mixes, flavored syrups, omelet ingredients, bath-- soaps lotions sponges, etc: reading- asst'd books, paperbacks,: anything that might go with her hobbies, etc etc.
The ideas can be endless/

I made a quilt for our Teacher of the year. I cut out 6 1/2 inch white muslin blocks and ironed freezer paper on the back as stabilizer. Have each of her class kids use Fabric Crayons (local Walmart or Hobby Lobby has them) to sign their name and make a picture. Use her favorite color or a school related print fabric to sash around each block.

Sandwich the top, batting and backing and machine quilt in the ditch around each picture. Bind with coordinating fabric and make a sleeve on the back for a curtain rod to hang on the wall at home or in the class room. Leave a couple of blank blocks and provide pigma pens to her coworkers and principle to sign. This will be a gift she can cherish for many years to come.

A spa package or massage would work for me!

When my kids were in elementary school, we would think of all the things that made that particular teacher special plus keep in mind what were the teachers likes and dislikes. We would compose a simple poem. Most of the time it was humorous. I would type it up and put it in a frame that was decorated by the kids.

They would glue different decorations around the frame. Over the years, we would come up with different ways to decorate. All the teachers loved it. I was told that the teachers always looked forward to their gift at the end of the year. It did take time and effort, but the kids really enjoyed making their special gift.

Re- not wanting what you receive:
When a student gives a gift, it is from their heart. It is chosen with thoughtfulness for the recipient. The receiver accepts it with gratitude, no matter what the item is.

The important part is how it was given. Items can be saved and regifted if necessary, if you really do not want it, but so that an offence is not made to the original giver.
