Back-to-School: A New Take on the Traditional 'Teacher' Gift

Give a thoughtful gift that any teacher would love

Back-to-School Tips


Don’t forget, teachers need love too!

With just a blink, summer is coming to an end and fall is right around the corner. Students of all ages are preparing for a new year; they’re picturing their new teachers, new friends and the experiences they will be a part of during this new school year.

When back-to-school time rolls around, breaking the ice with new teachers can be a tough experience for not only students but for parents as well. After all, you want to be on good terms with the person supplying your child with an entire year of education. This is why we created a simple and nice gesture to give to your child’s new or existing teacher to show appreciation for their hard work, passion and dedication.

The “Helping You Grow” arrangement is a new take on the traditional “teacher’s apple.” Featured in a terracotta pot or similar styled vessel we give you all the necessary tools for you and your child to create a beautiful gesture that not only helps their teacher feel appreciated but also plays a big role in getting your child excited for the new year. Within each pot come multiple baggies — one featuring the perfect amount of soil to fill your pot, another with a variation of succulent plants, and one with decorative rocks. Additionally, a small chalkboard frame with the words “Thank you for helping me grow” will be included with raffia and a pick to either wrap around your pot or stick straight into your little succulent garden. Each garden is different and you can always purchase additional succulent bags, rocks (available in white, brown, and black) as well as fresh floral and more.

Spread the importance of education and show your children how valuable a great teacher is with this simple gesture.
