The lead teacher in my 8-month old's daycare class is leaving and my wife and I want to get her something special.

This teacher is very caring and definitely loves all of the kids in the class. She has been very professional in her everyday interactions with us and is very respectful of our parenting decisions. She has been supportive and helpful to us, even going the extra mile in her time off to coordinate our son's schedule with a sleep consultant we were working with. She's babysat our son in a pinch. Over the last few months we've gotten to know her personally, and now that she's not going to be our son's daycare teacher we would love to hang out in a more social setting.
She's moving on to be a full-time assistant to a special needs child who is entering 3rd grade at a Jewish school. She'll be assisting the student in helping him integrate into his classroom.
We have more money than time to throw at this and therefore would like to get her something nice. Bonus points for stuff that either my wife or I can get in a shop in or around downtown Chicago.
