What are some ideas for an IT department Christmas/holiday gift that coveys the message: "It's been a stressful year, you've had very little leadership. Thanks for pulling together and working hard and producing results in spite of this"

I am in a new leadership position but am not new to the department. I have 11 very hard working employees on my team. There have been management changes in our organization throughout the last year that have made it tough on everyone. This group has done a great job of pulling together and continuing to provide excellent service in spite of the problems.
I would like to get my team members a small, meaningful token of appreciation. My budget is limited to $20 -$30 per person. My first thought is gift cards but the business office say NO! apparently because of some new regulations.
A few years ago before I was in this position. After a very stressful systems roll out our supervisor got us all Easy Buttons
. Everybody loved them they were a hit primarily because they fit the theme of the project.
