Do you have a teacher friend turning it up a year? Maybe it’s your wife, or mom, or maybe even your teacher. Regardless, if anyone deserves a nice present, it is our teachers.

Truly some of the most important members of our society, a good teacher can truly save lives – and they do this for way too little pay and too many hours.

So treat them nicely by getting a gift that makes their job just a little easier, because they truly are heroes!

Most of these ideas are going to be very affordable, so I suggest combing a few of them if you really want to treat her nice!

First off, A GOD DAMN SPA DAY. Like seriously you can ignore the rest of the guide and just go with this.

If anyone deserves to have a relaxing day at the spa, it is our teachers. Regardless of which grade they teach, from preschool to 12th grade, a massage and a facial does wonders for both body and mind.

Check out what your local spa has to offer, and get her the nicest package they got within your budget!

Help personalize her classroom with a custom stamp that has her name on it

Get them a custom stamp with their name for marking books and papers!

These are so handy, and is especially great for teachers who bring a lot of their own books to their classroom (its a crime that they have to in the first place but that's besides the point).

Customize the stamp to say "Mrs. West or Teacher West" or whatever you feel makes sense.

(this will also save her money as way less books will be lost!)

Gift her a personalized insulated coffee travel mug

If there is one thing that teachers tend to need a lot of, it is coffee.

Keep it hot by getting them a customized insulated coffee travel mug with her name on it!


Quirk it up by gifting her a cute teacher-themed totebag

Brighten up her style by getting her a teacher-themed or customized tote bag.

These are super cute, and a great way to combine gifts as you can put other presents inside!

Reduce her stress levels with a relaxation gift set

Bring the spa home by getting them a relaxation gift set that includes candles, bath salts, face masks, and all sorts of nice and chill things.

Again, teachers are busy people who carry our future on their shoulders -- at least let them have a nice bath!

I've had great success with this lavender kit, but there are tons to choose from!


Let her know she's the boss of her classroom by gifting a custom nameplate for her desk

A cheap and fun addition to their classroom!

These customized nameplates just up their desk game a little, and is a great way for new students to always have their teacher's name on deck.


Increase her teacher fit game with a themed hoodie

I absolutely LOVE these teacher-themed hoodies and T-shirts from Teepublic (no, not sponsored or affiliated).

They're super fun and affordable, and so comfy.

It is perfect for the teacher that truly loves their job, which most great teachers tend to do.


Loosen up those muscles by gifting a relaxing neck and shoulder massager

Whether they want it in the classroom or keep it at home, this relaxing neck massager is an absolute game changer.

It's a great way to destress and enjoy a few minutes of peace, and the quality for the price is out of this world.



Sometimes you just need a boost: so gift her a care package!

An easy way to show some love is to get them a care package with lots of small items that really build on each other.

I know there's a "get well soon" card that comes with these, but huck that to the side, slap a birthday card in there instead and you got a wonderful present!

Additionally these are so fun and easy to customize by adding things like the customized nameplate, her favorite treats, and maybe even a bottle of wine.
