Teacher Appreciation Gifts

My Teaching Days

I used to be a teacher and anytime my students would acknowledge my hard work it meant the world to me. Now whether that was a handwritten note or a gift, it didn’t matter. All that did was the thought.


Buy for random gifts all year round! If I see a cute basket on sale, I buy the whole bunch so I can use them for times like these, hostess gifts, housewarming, etc… I also do this with anything cute at the dollar section in target, cute dish towels, and diffusers. If you have oils, you can always whip up a roller, bath salts, and diffuser blends. Getting into oils has just added to my gift giving collection!

Vivian’s gift to her teacher

I forgot to take a picture of Vivian’s gift before we gave it to her teacher – FAIL! If you head to my Instagram here you can see it in my stories. But here is what we gave her:

Basket – I like to try and give gifts in a cute basket that the receiver could reuse!

Diffuser – This little cutie is super affordable! I added a little diffuser bomb with it so she could start diffusing right away.

Bath Salts – Combine some Epsom Salts and Lavender and you’re ready to go!

Car Tassel Diffuser – Her etsy shot it currently closed but I have a bunch that I always add to gifts.

Red Wine – My favorite 🙂

Some cute themed ideas from my friend Caitlin

My girlfriend last year gave her kids’ teachers a beach bag, beach towel, sunscreen , 2 margarita glasses, margarita mix with some salt and limes! How fun would this be to receive as a teacher!

The Ice Cream Gift!

This year her kids’ teacher is pregnant so she created a make your own ice cream sunday basket! She just grabbed a basket from the dollar spot at target, through in some bowls, ice cream scooper, carmel drizzle to top it off!
