Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up... it is May 4-8 this year, with Teacher Appreciation Day on May 5.

I don't recall ever having a day... or an entire week.... to formally appreciate my teachers growing up. But trust me - I DID appreciate them, and I still do.  The teachers nowadays do not get paid nearly enough to put up with the helicopter parents, the nanny-state, the (non-teacher-background) legislators getting involved in their business, and countless other issues that they face every single day.

So they deserve a day... a week... and anything else that can be sent their direction!

Where does The Sapphire Key fit into all this? We've got some great teacher gifts for you to send with your little-one!  We've got goodies for every price range.  Here are a few of our selections for this year:

1.  Apron
You know the teachers in the lower grades are dealing with some grubby hands... how about an apron to protect their clothes from those grub-monsters?  (*We also have men's aprons!)


Retro-Style Full Apron, $37.50


Ever notice the cute jewelry your teacher wears? How do you think she totes it around during the summer?  Most likely a baggie... Save her. Give her something nicer - for HER - not for her classroom.

Jewelry Satchel, Small $12.50 / Medium $17.50


We also call these dream pillows.  Herbs are nestled inside to help facilitate sweet dreams while sleeping.  And trust me - your teacher could use some sweet dreams!

Aromatherapy Pillow, $10.00


Our eye pillows are filled with organic flax seed and French lavender. The weight provides light pressure on the eyes, which helps relieve headaches and stress when coupled with the lavender scent.

Eye Pillow, $12.50


Our sweet owls are filled with soft fiberfill, and just a hint of lavender to smell nice.  The perfect gift for the classroom... wise old owl, cute as a button, smelling nice and getting rid of the "kid funk" . . . . perfect!

Owl Stuffie, Small $10.00 / Large $15.00


We are always adding new patterns to our product lines, so keep checking back.  And if you need a special order - for color, pattern, whatever - just message us, we'll be happy to work with you to get the perfect gift!
