For teachers…

best gifts teachers

Smart reusable notebook

Notes you write on this 32-page dotted grid notebook can be rocketed off to Google Drive, Dropbox, email, or a destination of your choice, then wiped off the page with a damp cloth. Satisfying!


Good day/ bad day wine glasses

“How was your day?” Such a simple question, and yet…. Sometimes the answer is hard to put into words.


Customized bitmoji self-inking stamp

Nothing cute about staring at a pile of papers that need grading, but these make the task a lot more fun.


Scented molecular necklace

This handmade lilac molecule charm in laser-cut birch is infused with the scent of lilac. Makes for a pretty, distinctive jewelry gift for science teachers.


Single-serve popcorn maker 

Forget the bagged stuff. Fresh popcorn all day long will make them the envy of the teacher’s lounge.


Personalized notepad

Plain ol’ lined paper is for the students. Teachers should enjoy customized stationery like the queen (or king) bees they are.


Custom bobblehead 

Looks pretty darn adorable perched on a teacher’s desk.


Famous painter socks 

For an art teacher or any art enthusiast looking to elevate their sock game.


Mug with a hoop 

Perfect for a coach, PE teacher or any sports fiend who will appreciate the idea of gamifying marshmallows.


For babysitters…

Evil eye pendant necklace 

Lit up with sparkling pavé, this 18k gold plated piece is fun and clever (just like her.)


Transparent cross-body bag 

Adjustable, removable chain and stadium-approved transparent exterior make this bag a winner (and tailgate friendly). Monogram available.


Stone diffuser 

Handcrafted porcelain looks sleek and delicate in any room, but don’t be fooled: this workhorse can go for 7 hours with favorite essential oils.


Longchamp tote 

Le Pliage is a classic bag that’s as stylish as it is sturdy and roomy. For all her stuff — and your kids’.


Turkish herringbone throw blanket 

So ultra-soft it deserves prime real estate at the foot of the bed or on the couch as a permanent Netflix partner-in-crime. Monogram available.


Sherpa bootie slipper  

Happy feet = happy human.


Custom Mash Face socks

How about a pair with your kids’ adorable faces on them? How can you not!?!


For the crossing guard…

Breakfast sandwich maker

Anyone who has to brave the elements so dang early in the morning deserves an easy, delicious, hot breakfast.


Inverted double-layer umbrella 

Protection from rain or shine. On wet days, the reverse opening and folding design means no drips upon closing. Hooray for modern technology.


Hand and toe warmers 

Winter is long, folks. Add a teapot to make it a themed gift of COZY.


For your co-carpool mom — or that neighbor who always has sugar to lend when you run out…

Recipe box 

Organizes recipes on 4×6 cards (just like your mama did!) and beautifies your kitchen with a sweet pop of color.


Shagreen tray

Use for serving food or accessorizing anywhere in the home. One of those great gifts that looks expensive but isn’t.


Teapot and infuser set

Holds two mug-size cups of tea, which is just perfect for an impromptu mom playdate. Comes with a bamboo trivet and cute box, so a total no-fuss gift.


Scented soy candles 

A feast for the senses. Small enough to tuck away for travel.


Herb garden starter kit 

Everyone can develop a green thumb with a little encouragement! This indoor/outdoor kit comes with seeds to start growing all the (delicious) basics: basil, cilantro, sage, thyme, and parsley. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll even be the recipient of some of the bounty.
