THE GIVING TREE

I am often asked..."can you suggest a unique teacher gift?"  Or, "...what can I do to show teachers that I appreciate them when we have many teachers and the budget is tight?  I often suggest taking in a home-baked treat on a pretty platter and sharing it for the grade level.  This way all of the teachers enjoy the treat, and they know that you are thinking of them!  And, if you want to splurge a little... offer hand-decorated cookies made by you or ordered from a bake shop.   Take a look at these cookies by Sweet Creations by Debbie and imagine how amazed teachers/librarians would be to enjoy these little works of art...

A Garden of Gift Ideas

I loved getting to spend some time with Luci Furlow of Seasonal Color Greenhouses, Inc. to come up with some gift ideas!  Luci has planted beautiful pots for me for teacher gifts, and I wanted to share a few ideas with you!I love how beautiful this pink geranium is- and how perfect it looks planted and tied with a bow!  A great gift to last through the summer and to brighten anyone's day!

If you have several teachers to buy for, these adorable little buckets filled with a flowering plant or an herb make a great gift idea!  Here, we used basil and mint.  I love how the herbs can be planted and used forever!

A sweet note to the teacher that says, "We were "mint" to be together!  I will miss you!"  would be a cute addition.  Or, "You were "mint" to be my teacher!  I love you!"  You could also add your favorite recipe that includes mint (or any herb of your choice). 

I also love how Luci shows how easily you can create a thoughtful gift for a teacher or hostess (or birthday, or housewarming, etc.) using a geranium, a container of your choice, and ribbon...

QUICK AND BEAUTIFUL!

Luci emphasizes how easy it is to create a great gift in a short amount of time by using plants and simple containers. 

Seasonal Color Greenhouses is a wholesale distributor throughout the southeast that is owned by Luci and Mack Furlow.  In addition to their wholesale distribution, they offer a unique service that you can enjoy at home.  Luci will plant your garden containers and/or porch containers and you can, literally, enjoy seasonal colors year round.  Luci offers on-site container plantings or will pick up, plant, and deliver!

She even does front doors!!
