A new school year is here so why not give a little welcome (and thank you) gift to the amazing people who spend a majority of their day teaching our kiddos? We're big on showing our appreciation with a little something special, so we are sharing our top 10 teacher gift ideas.
1. Lovable Lobes Leather Earrings, $12.99-$18.99
We've talked about these earrings before and we don't plan to stop now! They are great for jazzing up an outfit without over doing it and transition from day to night very well. Did we mention how light they are? We have multiple styles, sizes, and colors to choose from.
2. Hand and Body Lotion, $22.99
This line of 100% vegan products are quickly becoming a Bailey & James Team obsession. Not only are they cruelty free and natural, they work wonders and smell even more amazing. Scents include Citrus & Saffron, Hibiscus & Marigold, Jasmine & Rose, Verbena & Coconut, Lavender & White Sage and Sandalwood & Incense. We also carry their body oils, candles, and bath salts.
3. Inspirational Mug, $18.00
These inspirational mugs were designed by a local Artisan, From Meade to You. Each mug has varying florals and related quote. One being a bold floral with, "There will always be flowers for those who want to see them". Another with dandelions and "All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on." Last but not least, lovely greens, with "They tried to bury us but they did not know that we are seeds." Are these not the most perfect gift for a wonderful teacher?
4. 17 Month Calendar, $18.99
This 17 Month calendar begins August 2018 - December 2019 and includes monthly overviews, important dates, holiday overviews, monthly bill tracker, contacts information, and a dot grid notes page. We are big fans of cute organization and this new agenda definitely takes care of that.
5. Tiny Bits of Goods 8x10 Inspirational Print, $12.00
The lovely lady behind Tiny Bits of Happiness has a collection of inspirational prints perfect for sprucing up any classroom. A dose of daily encouragement is always welcome in our book. To name a few great options, "This Year: have more adventures, spread more love, embrace imperfections, learn new things, pursue happiness, make connections & love yourself" (photo pictured), "Make Today Great", "The world is your oyster", "Great things are done by a series of small things brought together - Van Gogh", and "You got this".
6. Custom Foliage Arrangement, $12+
We love to help create custom arrangements in all sizes, styles, and price points. Stop in the shop to check out our foliage bar and we'll get to work on a unique piece just for you.
7. Rifle Paper Co. + Corkcicle Limited Edition Tumbler and Canteens, $32.99 & $35.99
Make someone's day with these bold and beautiful insulated tumblers and canteens. Great for water, coffee, tea, etc. Made of stainless steel with a silicone bottom (helps prevent accidental spills). We love all things Rifle Paper Co., especially fun collaborations with innovative brands like Corkcicle.
8. Succulent Garden, $12.00-$24.00
Another sweet local Artisan, Fancy Plants, creates succulent gardens of all sizes. She sources the most adorable containers and builds each garden by hand with the utmost love and care. You can never go wrong with live plants and a little card of care instructions for help.
9. Book Letters and Shapes, $15.00
We've got a team of talented local Artisans working with us and these fun book letters and shapes created by Books by Simone are no exception! Each book is a vintage Reader's Digest repurposed into letters and shapes you can mix-and-match or let stand alone.
10. Retreat Linen Cosmetic Bag, $22.99
Made from 100% linen with a sturdy thick zipper and smooth interior, this cosmetic bag will hold up beautifully. Perfect piece to through in a purse or desk drawer at school. Fill it with some wellness items and you've got yourself a thoughtful gift!
