OUR TOP PICKS WHEN CHOOSING HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR TEACHERS
The teachers in our lives, whether they’re ours or our children’s, are a special group of individuals. These are people who give of themselves endlessly and tirelessly, in the classroom and in the group Zoom chat, for the betterment of the people on the receiving end of the learning lessons.
Teachers are synonymous with leaders, mentors and friends, and we want to offer holiday gift ideas this season as a token of appreciation for the support and guidance they offer.
WELLNESS GIFTS FOR TEACHERS: DIFFUSERS AND HOME DECOR
One of the ways we think you can have a positive impact on a teacher’s environment, be it teaching from home or in the classroom, is by adding a diffuser to their space. While diffusers are beautiful to look at, adding a decorative element to any room in which they’re placed, they’re also highly functional and supportive of naturally scented, refreshed air.
Diffusers release negative ions which help to freshen the air and elevate our well-being, naturally. They use water and pure essential oil to create mist that carries beneficial essential oil molecules throughout an area, creating a welcoming atmosphere that can be scented according to one’s preference.
Here are the diffusers we’ll be gifting our teachers this year:
Aroma Nook: we think this is the perfect starter for those who are new to diffusing. This unit is made from a stylish polyresin in a cool, creamy off-white color with a textured herringbone finish. Offering both a continuous and intermittent setting, this unit can run for between 4-8 hours.
Aroma (Be) Free: this design-forward, cordless and rechargeable diffuser is also heat-free and whisper-quiet, acting as both a functional and fashionable piece of decor for your home. Offering both a continuous and intermittent setting, this unit can run for between 4-8 hours.
WELLNESS GIFTS FOR TEACHERS: THE SCENTS OF THE SEASON
We would be remiss to not share our favorite scents of the season as gifting ideas for our teachers. These warm and cozy diffuser blends fly off the shelf each season in part because they do such a wonderful job at reminding us to take deep breaths as needed, slow down, and be connected.
Here are the diffuser blends we’ll be gifting our teachers this year:
Winter Bouquet: rich magnolia, musky jasmine and zesty mandarin fill your space with ease and joy—the perfect ambience for making merry memories.
Forest Retreat: bring that feeling of renewal inside with this brand new blend that mirrors the complexity of the great outdoors: crisp balsam fir, earthy vetiver and slightly sweet virginiana cedar with a hint of herbal eucalyptus.
Cabin Cozy: this spicy, woodsy and comforting blend creates a cozy fireside-like vibe to warm up and wind down to.
WELLNESS GIFTS FOR TEACHERS: MINDFULNESS PRODUCTS AND KITS
While some of our teachers celebrate a well-deserved break during the holidays, we want to thank them for their efforts with wellness gifts that encourage slowing down and taking mindful, intentional time for themselves.
Here are the mindfulness products we’ll be gifting our teachers this year:
Pocket Farmacy - Mindful Edition: a collection of five of our well-loved roll-ons to support reflection and inner stillness, boosting emotional energy, feeling peaceful and calmed, leaning into one’s inner confidence and encouraging connection through feeling uplifted. These roll-ons can be applied anywhere that intuitively feels good, like the temples, wrists, jawline and behind the ears and come in a convenient zippered case that can help them take wellness on the go.
Stress Release Kit: an assortment of three products and accessories curated in support of your mental and emotional wellness, helping to encourage relaxation and promote peacefulness. This kit includes our Stress Release soothing oil blend roll-on, Stress Release inhaler and Relax-O-Ring massage ring.
WELLNESS GIFTS FOR TEACHERS: PRODUCTS TO PAMPER THEMSELVES WITH
No one deserves to be pampered and fussed over like our teachers. They’re so used to putting others first, which is why we’re making recommendations on wellness products we think will support them in prioritizing self-care.
Here are the self-care products we’ll be gifting our teachers this year:
Liquid Sunshine Kit: this limited-edition collection includes four different formats of Liquid Sunshine: a roll-on, lip balm, hand cream, and soap-filled wash pad—a joyful, sunshiney state of mind is within reach all day, everyday.
Reflexology Rituals: energize your mind, body, and sole. Step up your morning or midday routine with an acupressure mat that revives tired feet, paired with a limited-edition tingly foot balm, and a stimulating oil blend.
LIFESTYLE TIPS WHEN CHOOSING GIFTS FOR TEACHERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
It’s easy to imagine that some people feel conflicted about gifting theirs or their children’s teachers; is it appropriate to offer a gift during the holidays? Here are a few of our thoughts:
- Yes, it’s ok. It’s absolutely appropriate to offer a gift or a token of appreciation to the hardworking teachers in your life. Saying thank you to someone for the role they play in your life, especially when done with intentionality, is always ok.
- Gifts are appreciated. We do believe that everyone feels celebrated and acknowledged when receiving a gift, but it’s important to note that it’s not necessary. It’s not the splashy and pricey gifts that get noticed – it's the ones that feel meaningful.
- Get creative! A fun and thoughtful way to thank and acknowledge the teachers in your life is by personalized gift giving that speaks to their individual likes and interests. If you notice they start each morning with a cup of tea or coffee, you might choose a gift in that category. If they mention being a runner or a yogi you can choose products to support their active lifestyle. Many of the best gifts received are those that hold meaning that shows how much you care.
