Whether she has a romantic evening planned or is hoping to enjoy a quiet night to herself, candles are a lovely way to help a teacher relax on Valentine's Day — and throughout the rest of the year. These beautiful rustic luxe unscented candles (potterybarn.com, $12–$30) will look beautiful in any space. The deep red offers the perfect Valentine's Day touch, while the classic look ensures she'll use them all through the year.

Relaxing diffuser

You've likely found yourself stressed after taking care of only a couple of kids for a whole day, so imagine running after 20 of them! That would give just about anyone a need to unwind. The soothing mixture of pumpkin and spices in this attractive diffuser (pier1.com, $16) will help your child's teacher sit back and relax after her crazy days. And having her in a positive mind space while she marks your kid's tests certainly doesn't hurt!

Some holiday symbols really can't be showcased all year round. Folks would look at you strangely if you walked around with pumpkin earrings in the spring or a snowflake pattern on your sweater in July. Fortunately the sweet little hearts that represent Valentine's Day symbolize love and affection all year long, so a Valentine's Day-themed tumbler is sure to get plenty of use well after Feb. 14 has passed. And given how busy many elementary schoolteachers' days can be, a tumbler will be a more practical choice than a mug. This Starbucks Valentine's tumbler (starbucksstore.com, $11) will keep her favourite morning beverage nice and warm so she can focus on educating the geniuses of the future.

Mason jar full of goodies

With so many yummy treats available at this time of year, it can be hard to settle on what you want to give as a gift,  so why not cover all your bases? It's as simple as filling a large Mason jar with all the goodies that catch your eye. You can include chocolates, candies, homemade cookies, cute school supplies, trinkets such as bracelets or earrings and more. Then wrap it in a bow, and you're done!

Gift with love

No matter the gift, don't forget to add a personal touch. Teachers love their students, so be sure to include a homemade Valentine's Day card they can treasure. It's an excellent way to get your children involved in the gifting process and make teachers feel truly appreciated.
