We had a wonderful few months here in Saint Louis, but summer vacation is quickly coming to an end. While checking to make sure that you have completed everything on your back-to-school list, don’t forget to order gifts for teachers and students heading back to class. Starting a new academic year can be exciting, but can also be a bit stressful for everyone involved. Walter Knoll Florist has some ideas for back-to-school gifts that will ease the transition into a fantastic year.
Gifts for Teachers – A classroom gift is a thoughtful and fun way to tell your child’s new teacher that you support and appreciate them. Choose from our Back-To-School collection, for trios of some of our most popular flowers; rose, lilies or delphinium will bring color and cheer into the classroom. We also love the idea of our succulent trio, which can be educational as well as interesting for the kids.
Gifts for Staff – Whether for the front office or the faculty conference room, a fruit basket, selection of gourmet foods or chocolates will be greatly appreciated. Who doesn’t love something to snack on during a break? A gift to these school employees will make them feel noticed and appreciated – and get the year off to a great start.
Delight School-Age Students – Children may experience some understandable anxiety before meeting a new teacher and entering a room full of new friends. Surprise them with a small gift, or vase of flowers in a whimsical container next to their breakfast. The gesture is guaranteed to make them smile.
Surprise College Students – Beginning life in a college dorm room is certainly different than living under your roof. Surprise your student with a green plant, delivered directly to their new home. Give their space a cozy feel while promoting increased concentration and productivity. Don’t forget our College Care package, which includes warm soup and fresh bread and cookies, just like Mom used to make.
