Affordable Gifts For Teachers

A lot of the time, being a good teacher is a hard job. As rewarding as it is to guide children through their formative years and teach them the core skills they’ll need later in life, it can also be draining and difficult on a day-to-day basis. 

So if you want to show your appreciation for your favorite teacher, we’ve gathered some ideas for inexpensive but much-appreciated gifts that’ll help them chill out and relax after a long day in the classroom! 

Gifts for Teachers from Pacha Soap Co. 

Muscle Salt Block

From running around with your kids during recess and activities to standing up in front of the class lesson after lesson, your child’s teacher probably spends a huge amount of their day on their feet. And unfortunately, all of that standing can definitely equal some muscle pain over time. So to help them relax, consider giving your favorite teacher this muscle salt block is made with a carefully crafted blend of Epsom salt, clay, and essential oils. All they have to do is drop it into a warm bath and they’ll be able to enjoy a relaxing, invigorating soak that’ll help ease those achy muscles. 

Sugar & Spice Hand Cream

As much as we love our kids, let’s face it: they’re super prone to all those contagious bugs that go around in the classroom. This inevitably means that their teachers are constantly washing their hands and using hand sanitizer to keep the bugs at bay -- and unfortunately, all of that washing can be really hard on their skin.

Give them the gift of much-needed relief for those dry, overwashed hands with this delectably-scented Sugar & Spice Hand Cream. It has all the warm, cozy scents of warm vanilla and soothing cloves that they love about the winter season, plus a deeply moisturizing formula featuring unrefined Shea butter to give those hard working hands some well-deserved hydration. 

Sand & Sea Whipped Soap + Scrub

For the ultimate gift of pampering, give your teacher the experience of a luxuriously relaxing spa day every single time they get into the shower or bath. This special formula of Whipped Soap and Scrub includes a ton of ingredients their skin will love, like detoxifying volcanic ash, sea salt, pumice, and cleansing oils so that they can cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize all with a single product.

Plus, this formula is made with Pacha’s best-selling Sand & Sea scent that’ll instantly transport them to a quiet, relaxing beach -- even if in reality it’s just Wednesday night after a long day of work. 

Uplifting Flower Power Bath Brew (Travel Size) 

Sometimes, all you want to do at the end of a stressful work week is lie down in a field of flowers -- but even if that calming meadow is out of reach for your favorite teacher, this bath brew sure isn’t! To use, they’ll just need to fill up the bag with the uplifting blend of rose, chamomile, calendula, safflower and Holy basil floral botanicals and run it under warm water. The end result is a rejuvenating and uplifting floral bath that’ll let them sit back and chill out. 

Dirty Hippie

For the teacher who’s always instilling the importance of taking care of Mother Earth in our future generations! This bundle features Pacha Soap Co’s OG best-selling scent blend of patchouli essential oil, spicy nutmeg, and moisturizing rolled oats in the Dirty Hippie Bar Soap, plus an earthy Patchouli Soli Essential Oil that they can use whenever they need an invigorating pick-me-up at home or in the classroom. Even better: all Pacha products are all-natural and made with sustainability in mind for a gift that that teacher will really appreciate. 

Pacha Peaces Signature Scents Collection

Finally, you can’t go wrong with a collection of fancy and sustainable soaps, which is where this Signature Scents collection really shines. This quintessential bundle comes with some of Pacha’s best-selling, crowd-pleasing scents, including Almond Goat’s Milk, Pachafetti, Jasmine Gardenia, Sand & Sea, Coconut Lemon, Clarifying Charcoal, and French Lavender for a truly luxurious gift that anyone can appreciate. 

Other inexpensive gift ideas for teachers

Looking for other cheap gift options for teachers? Some other good gift ideas include: 

A homemade treat. 

A batch of homemade cookies or a cake is an incredibly thoughtful gift that doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg to make. Have your child help out with the baking process to make it a full experience (bonus points if you make your baked good apple-flavored for a cheeky nod to the “apple for teacher” cliche). 

A gift card to their favorite local coffee shop. 

Your favorite teachers can probably thank their mugs of hot, strong coffee for helping them get through the day, so giving them the gift of another cup will definitely be much appreciated. You can also take it a step further and pair it with a cute coffee mug that expresses your appreciation or a package of coffee beans from their favorite coffee shop so that they can also whip up a brew at home or in the breakroom in between classes. 

A visit to the spa. 

If you know that your teacher could really benefit from a full afternoon of relaxation, consider giving them a gift card for an affordable service at a nearby salon or spa. Whether you’re giving them the gift of a fresh new manicure or a relaxing massage, it’ll leave them feeling fresh, invigorated and ready to tackle the new school year. 

A thank-you card. 

Sometimes, the best gifts are the simplest! Help your child make a handwritten card thanking the teacher for all of the hard work that they’ve done this year, and have them include some specifics as well so the teacher knows just how much of an impact they’ve had on your child during the year. 


Showing your appreciation for your teacher can go a long way in a job that requires so much dedication and can very often feel thankless. These gifts are great and inexpensive options for expressing just how thankful you are to your teachers for all the hard work that they do and the major role that they play in your child’s life.
