Teacher Gifts 2011

We're chalking up another great schoolyear to having wonderful teachers. And just in time for Mother's Day, today we are surprising them with flowers.

Each year I look for a unique container that teachers can put to use long after the flowers have wilted. This year I chose clear glass canisters accented with chalkboard labels -- a steal at World Market. (They come with chalk, so the children labeled their teachers' canisters before taping the chalk to the lid.) I filled each canister with a bouquet of tulips and finished off the arrangement with a gift tag. I love the versatility of these canisters and hope each teacher will find a perfect spot for one at home or at school.
