  • There are all types of flower arrangements to consider, including those with a wide range of flower types and colors. Think about where the teacher might keep the arrangement, so you could pick a cube or bubble bowl if the teacher is limited on space or if the teacher has room, you can upgrade it to a big vase or large basket.

Always Say Thanks to Your Teachers!

Teachers work hard and often for not what the pay they should receive. That’s why it is important to let them know in person or through a card that you are thankful they do what they do. It makes a world of difference to teachers because they would not be doing this job if it were not for their personal commitment and interest in helping young people. Say thank you as you hand them a special gift or put it a card to go with your delivery.
