If there’s anyone who deserves all the love on Valentine’s Day — and every other day, for that matter — it’s teachers! The countless hours they put in to loving our children, the time spent coming alongside us as parents to guide and teach them, and the passion they have for education is simply unmatched. And if there’s anything the past couple of years have taught us, it’s that being a teacher is most definitely a calling! Today we are rounding up Valentine’s Day teacher gift ideas.
Below you’ll find a few of our favorite gifts of our Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Teachers, from sweet little somethings for their classroom to items you can pair together as a gift from the whole class. And if you happen to go that route, package it all together in this reusable Scout tote for the ultimate Valentine-themed teacher gift!

One of our favorite gifts to give for any occasion is a good book, and a new book for a teacher’s classroom is so thoughtful — especially for younger teachers who are building out their book collection! “The Duchess Bakes a Cake” is a sweet rhyming book that’s great for preschool or early elementary classes, and you can find our list of classic Valentine’s Day books here. Any “red” book would be cute!
And if you’re looking for a yummy treat to pair with your teacher gift, our Valentine’s snack mix makes for the cutest little gifts! These would be perfect to bring to school administrators, special teachers, or the school office. Just box them up and add a gift tag.
