Thank You For Helping Me Grow Succulent Planter - this small planter would be the perfect addition to any classroom. As a bonus your child could help you plant the succulent, adding a personal touch. You can find this adorable planter in Soul Seventeen's Etsy shop.
Music Teacher Jewelry - we have a wide variety of instruments so chances are that we have something made from your music teachers main instrument! Hang Ups jewelry (made from retired instruments) is the gift that gives back - 30% of every sale goes to our non-profit partner, Band of Angels, who give the gift of music to kids in need.

Magnetic Clothespins - this is an easy and fun activity from DIYs.com that your child can feel good about doing on their own. There are so many ways teachers can use clothespins in the classroom. This gift is beautiful, personal and practical!
Caramel Apple in a Jar - another charming homemade project from DIYs.com. What teacher wouldn't love this delicious gift?
Wonder Cuff Bracelet - for the elementary school teacher who reads the book Wonder to her class every year and loves it more every time. This bracelet is from our Literacy Jewelry Collection. A percentage of each sale goes to our non-profit partner, Literacy KC.
We appreciate teachers so much. They nurture, spark interest and help guide our adorable tiny humans into full-grown wonderful humans. They show compassion and empathy during the bumps in the road and tough love when it's needed. It's a difficult job and only the most special people are up to it. We love that there is an entire week dedicated to thanking them. Did you know that several businesses also offer teachers discounts this week? Check out this USA Today list to see some of them.
We hope that the sun is shining, flowers are blooming and leaves are popping out where you are. Enjoy the magic of Spring!
Kristi and Carolyn
