If you love giving gifts to your kids’ teachers than you are probably looking at your calendar and noticing how Valentine’s Day is approaching quickly! I have a few friends who are teachers and they always tell me they love receiving gifts, but there are some items they appreciate more than others (and desk chotchkes aren’t one of them). Check out some of these sweet gifts for your teachers this Valentine’s Day!
1. Bee My Valentine
There are many things that teacher’s receive as gifts they may not need, but chapstick is one of them. Especially when it’s Burt’s Bees chapstick which is natural and feels great! Not only is this a simple, inexpensive and useful gift, but the play on words (bee for Burt’s Bees, in case you didn’t catch it!) makes it great for Valentine’s Day.

2. Toe-riffic Valentine
I love this idea because the colors of the card make it Valentine friendly, but you could really use it for any holiday. All ladies love nail polish in some color, so find an inexpensive pink or red shade, slap on this cute card and you have a toe-riffic valentine (see what I did there?).

3. Hugs & Kisses Mason Jar
A little candy is always appreciated by a teacher, especially if it’s in this adorable mason jar with a Valentines theme. A simply stamped or painted peice of burlap and festive colored ribbon are all you need to take a plain jar to Valentine’s day lovely. Don’t forget the kisses!
