Basically we have two things going on here: personalized mugs and personalized jars.
The personalized mugs are all over the internet these days, so...no big surprise there.
If you want to make them, just draw with an OIL paint Sharpie, such as these beautiful markers...

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for a half hour and...it's supposed to stay on through the dishwasher and everything. Who knows if it really does or not, but it looks pretty tough, don't you think? We're going to put gift cards inside.
Our next teacher gift which I will hopefully not ruin the surprise by posting here are gift jars:
We filled it with white tulle and this DELICIOUS chocolate (another affiliate link). Not only is it incredibly yummy, but it's 70% dark. That means it's ALMOST DIET FOOD!!!! Or at least it qualifies for the South Beach Diet. Maybe Atkins too, who knows?
It's good stuff at any rate:
Theo Chocolate Organic 70% Dark Chocolate Sea Salt -- 3 oz
And now, the moment you've all been waiting for! A link to the free printable. Obviously, I left off the name of my own kid, so it could have your kid's(s') name!
Chanukah picture books also make a great gift! Click here for a big list of over 25 Hanukkah picture books!
Have a happy whatever-winter-holiday-you-celebrate folks!
