Gift Ideas for Teachers (No School Supplies Here)

This year's gift guide is a bit late, but better late than never, right? Usually, my gift guides include lots of great items you can use in your classroom, but 2020 has just been a doozy of a year. So, this year, I'm sharing lots of gift ideas that you can use to pamper yourself and take care of yourself whether you are in distance learning mode, hybrid learning mode, or back in school (where I'm sure nothing is normal).

These are items you might gift yourself. Or, you could use these ideas and share them with friends and family who ask you what you want for the holidays this year. Or, consider these ideas for the teacher in your life. 

Face Mask

Face masks are a great way to pamper yourself. This one from Peter Thomas Roth is my all time favorite. I have used it for years. It smells divine and helps exfoliate my skin and reduce the look of pores. But, honestly, any face mask will do! Slather that stuff on, and then sit back and relax!

Eye Mask

Don't forget about those tired eyes. If you're teaching online, your eyes are likely more tired than usual. And, I don't just mean your actual eyeballs. Teaching and teaching online is draining. But that doesn't mean that you need to look drained. De-puff and energize those eyes with a fun and fancy eye mask! 


I teach from home. My uniform of choice is a nice work top paired with leggings and these slippers. A girl needs to feel cozy when she's at home! This pair is extra cushiony and super soft. Now, if you're teaching from school, this may not work for you in the same way, but think about how happy your feet will be at the end of the day. 


I have a diffuser in my classroom, and I have one at home. I love to diffuse peppermint oil (I usually buy mine from Thrive Market). Whatever your favorite scent is, find one that makes you feel calm and peaceful. Diffuse it near your home workstation (or your desk at school) in a pretty diffuser like this one and take a few deep breaths throughout the day. Plus, a nice smelling workspace is never a bad thing.


It's starting to get cold. When my heater turns off, the chill takes over (and I'm pretty cold sensitive). I keep a faux fur throw nearby at all times. The faux fur throws are extra silky and extra soft. I can quickly toss it over my lap and it just makes me feel calm and warm.

Weighted Blanket

Having trouble sleeping this school year? More so than usual, that is? If so, give a weighted blanket a try. It might just help you get a good night's rest.

Water Bottle

Teaching from home doesn't mean you can skimp on drinking your water each day. I like to fill up a small water bottle like this one so that I can have to get up mid-morning and mid-afternoon to refill it. Teaching from behind a computer means you sit a lot. Needing to refill my water bottle during prep and lunch means I know I will walk away and get moving a bit, plus, I'm drinking my water.
