From spooktacular classroom decor to mouth-watering goodies, here are 20 Halloween gifts for the teachers in your life that say "Fangs a lot for all that you Boo!"
This spooky-cute shirt is so perfect for any teacher - any gender, any grade level - that it's scary. It's made from 100% ring-spun cotton with a soft, vintage feel that can be worn alone on Casual Friday or layered under a smart blazer for that Cool Teacher look.

For the teacher who loves to set a mood in their classroom (or home) with scented candles, this sampler pack of autumnal aromas from Hazel Candle Co. is sure to please. This set of 4oz. minis feature four cozy fall fragrances like Pumpkin Spice, Macintosh, Spiced Maple, and Flannel Season. The candles are made from a proprietary soy wax blend in small batches and hand poured in California.
Creepy desk decor is a fun and functional gift your teacher can reuse every year! This pencil holder, shaped like a stack of skulls, is made from heavy-duty resin and painted to look eerily realistic.
Wouldn't a textbook look amazing sitting open on these bony, witchy hands? I'm thinking chemistry or history, or even that big tome of Shakespeare's collected works that every English teacher seems to have. Cast from resin and hand painted with bone-chilling detail, these could also serve as bookends or even hold a bowl of candy!
These bath bombs, housed in boxes made to look like spellbooks and esoteric texts, will tell your teacher they deserve some well-earned R and R. Handmade in California from nourishing cocoa butter, pure essential oils, and organic botanicals, this gift box is a sampler of bestsellers from Etsy store Laura Botanicals like lavender, orange tangerine, and vanilla cardamom. Self-care, but make it spooky!
For the English Lit or Drama teacher you love, how about this hilarious card game featuring some of the Bard's most dastardly deaths? This deck of 36 cards is gorgeously illustrated and features information on how the character died, their last words, and an assessment of the severity and fairness of their demise. The game itself is structured like War, and the player with the most cards at the end wins!
Quieting a room full of rowdy kids can take forever, am I right? This pennant-style sign is made of poly twill that hangs from a wooden dowel rod and features a portrait of a teacher whose patience has expired along with their corporeal form.
Houseplants are lovely and thoughtful little gifts to give someone who has such an impact on your child's growth. Even if they're not much of a green thumb, Spider plants are so easy to care for, and this one comes in a plump, pumpkin-shaped planter that's perfect for the season!
This jigsaw puzzle from Uncommon Goods has a terrifying twist - it's also a murder mystery! Read the accompanying story for guidance on how to put the pieces together and as the picture comes into focus you'll be able to solve the whodunnit. Choose between two macabre mix-'em-ups packaged in book-shaped boxes. It's a frighteningly fresh take on a beloved cozy season pastime.
If you're looking to give just a small token of your appreciation, these cute Halloween-y pencils are guaranteed to do the trick (and be a treat.) The set of five unsharpened writing implements come in a variety of festive colors and are hand-pressed with little phrases like "Boo," "Hocus Pocus," and "Spooky Vibes." Buying for the whole faculty? This Etsy shop takes bulk orders!
I feel like when I was in school, there was always a teacher who's classroom door wreath game was on point year-round. These decorations would be colorful, fun, and of course, change with the seasons.
This World Market wreath is an artful arrangement of faux black orchids, fall foliage, and white berries, accented with a trio of skulls for an effect that's chillingly chic.
A nourishing hand cream and lip balm set is a thoughtful gift for folks who spend the day talking and handling papers. This one from Dionis is made with 100% natural ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil infused with goat milk and scented with luscious caramel pumpkin spice.
This coffin-shaped letter board comes with over 580 characters - including eerie emojis like spiders, pumpkins, and bats - that your teacher will love to use to get their message across, whether it's highlighting a favorite quote or announcing a petrifying pop quiz. At 17" tall by 10.5" wide, there's plenty of space for them to express themselves, plus it comes with a built in stand!
Technically, this laser pointer is a cat toy, but I don't see why it can't be utilized in a classroom setting. It comes ready to use with three LR44 batteries, and the little skull icon is a fun Halloween change from the ubiquitous red or blue point of light.
The black cat mug listed above is for the sweet teacher, but this Piper Lou tumbler is for the one who serves up knowledge with a hefty side of sass. The double-walled, vacuum-insulated body keeps beverages at the perfect temperature, while the spill-proof lid keeps their sweater or button-down safe from coffee spots. It's available in 14 colors, and Piper Lou will replace any broken or lost lids for their products for life!
The Tea Can Company's Witch's Brew tea gift set features two of their premium teas - the lightly-caffeinated Wicked Vanilla Rose Oolong and herbal Black Magic Elderberry - plus two honey pops for stirring in some sweetness. Each can contains six tea bags for up to 12 cups of goodness.
