Something to Remember the Kids By
This unique kit of easy-to-grow seeds will bring a mini garden and months of optimism to their windowsill. They simply add the included soil pellets, seeds and water to the pots, and watch the flowers come to life–one month at a time. The seeds include petunias, marigolds, pansies, lobelia, alyssum, zinnias, impatiens, baby's breath, dianthus, cosmos, poppies and sweet peas. Each candy-colored earthenware pot features an etched illustration of the corresponding flower and each set includes seeds, soil pellets, pots and easy growing instructions. $70 www.redenvelope.com
To De-stress and Get Pretty
No matter your budget, head to Blue Tulip for their extensive selection of Davies Gate bath and shower products. They can create a beautiful basket from the whole class or nicely wrap a single item for a nice gesture just from you.
$7.50 - 32.50 Available at Blue Tulip, 2250 Black Rock Turnpike
A Tisket, A Tasket, Make Her a Basket
Here's a gift the whole class can participate in. Pick a theme and have each child contribute a gift to the basket. Some themes we like:
Beach Basket Bonanza
Get her ready for summer! This basket is tons of fun. You can include flip flops, a cozy beach towel, sun screen, a few best sellers, sun glasses and cooler bag.
Books & Classroom Materials - Some teachers love to get supplies for the class. You should include books, stickers, crayons, markers, Kleenex (never enough), and a gift-card to a local book store.
Movie Night - Pick a few DVD's, some popcorn, candy and a gift card to a local movie rental store.
It's Italian - Create a pasta night! Include a cook book, apron, gourmet tomato sauce, pasta, wooden spoons, pestos and olive oil.
