Looking for non candy Valentine’s Day teacher gifts? For many people, Valentine’s Day means candy and lots of it. Everywhere you look, there are heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and colorful candy hearts. Red and pink lollipops sit in buckets at every cash register. Candy isn’t always a great choice for a gift especially if you don’t know the person your shopping for personally. Diabetics should avoid large doses of candy. Someone watching their weight won’t appreciate a box of chocolate. Because I follow the Paleo diet, I would rather not have a box of chocolate for Valentine’s Day or any other holiday.

Non Candy Valentine’s Day Teacher Gifts
We’ve never known the kids’ teachers well enough to know if they would appreciate candy for Valentine’s Day or not. We chose non candy Valentine’s Day teacher gifts to be on the safe side. I had a cute tin bucket that I decided to decorate with Washi tape. After I decorated it, I filled it with a variety of different beauty products that could be used for pampering. Because I wanted the tin to be usable throughout the year, I didn’t do a typical Valentine’s Day pattern with red, pink, white and hearts. You can use whatever color Washi tape you have on hand or buy some for a Valentine’s Day theme if you prefer.
A few suggestions for your tin:
- Washcloth or bath puff
- Lavender Soap
- Lip balm
- Hand lotion. We like the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
- Boogie Wipes are perfect for snotty noses or sticky fingers.
- Puffs Fresh Face wipes are great for after a workout.
- School supplies like pencils, a small ruler, Post-it notes or erasers are always good ideas.
- Instant coffee or a few bags of herbal tea.
- If you know the recipient well, you can always add in an iTunes gift card or a gift card to their favorite restaurant for lunch.
