Green plants are proven to purify the air, plus they energize and de-stress people sharing a room with them. Give your student a fresh gift to inspire them all semester long! The Succulent Garden, shown above, is easy to care for and only takes up a small amount of space. But the benefits to your student and his dorm room are extensive.

Teacher Gifts to Begin the School Year

Very often we give teacher gifts at the end of a long school year. It seems only fitting, after all, to reward hard working educators for successfully making it all the way through – teaching is not an easy job! But knowing how much effort and dedication that they exhibit every day, we think that teacher gifts should be given at the beginning of the year. This thoughtful gesture will convey your appreciation, support, and encouragement.

This late summer flower arrangement is just one of our back to school teacher gifts. Rustic and natural, this design is suited well for the teacher’s desk, or for them to bring home to adorn their own decor. Either way, the beautiful bouquet looks back just one last time at summer before we move forward into the new year.

Most people agree that one of the best ways to unwind after a long day is to put your feet up and light a scented candle. We have a wide selection of WoodWick and Bridgewater candles that are sure to bring soothing relaxation after a long day in the classroom.

We recommend sending these delicious teacher gifts before the children even return to school. As teachers, administrators and staff put final touches on their preparations for the first day of school, our gourmet gift baskets will be the hit of the teacher’s lounge! Choose from meats and cheeses, fruits or chocolate – but make sure there is enough to share. Not only will you get their school year off to a great start, but you just may be the favorite parent this year.  Simply choose your basket, and we’ll make sure it gets there.

With school starting in Albuquerque in the next few weeks, now is the time to order. We love the idea of bringing a smile to the faces of these committed professionals who invest so much of themselves into our children. How can we help you to say thank you?

Back to School Gifts and Flowers

back to schoolIt is hard to believe that the summer is half over for school and college kids. While the kids may not want to think about going back to school yet, parents will certainly be concerned about everything from getting their college age kids off to school with everything they need, and making sure that the kids still at home are prepared for school. Sometimes schools have open houses so that parents can get to meet their children’s teachers. We think that it’s important to recognize the things that students may worry about when returning to school, and show their kids’ teachers or guidance counselors, their gratitude. All of us at People’s Flowers believe that regardless of the message you want to convey, “Flowers say it all.”

We hope you agree with our belief that the school year will start out with a huge bang when you give flowers and gifts. We have some suggestions that we hope will inspire or help you as you shop for back to school gifts for the important people in your life, and in your child’s life.
