I always struggle with what to get the kids’ teachers at the end of the year. How do you show your appreciation for them and not simultaneously load them up with a bunch of trinkets, crap and calories? I’ve done the gift card thing many times, and that seems like the safest route, but it leaves my creative side weeping.
I think I just found my new favorite place to shop for gifts, though, and wanted to share with you all. (I confess, I *just* gave my son’s teachers their end-of-year gifts… on the first day of the new year.)
This summer I saw a feature on FEED Projects on our local NBC channel.
FEED Projects’ mission is to create good products that help FEED the world… the impact of each product, signified by a stenciled number, is understandable, tangible, and meaningful. We take great pride in using environmentally-friendly and artisan-made materials, along with fair-labor production, in creating all FEED products. –via FEEDProjects.com
I ran to my computer to look at the bags and accessories and wound up ordering 2 FEED 10 pouches for the teachers who took such great care of Kendall the last school year.
Each will provide 10 school meals for children in need, and they are gorgeous. Really, I know they’re made from burlap, but they are beautifully lined with a substantial zipper. They would make great makeup pouches or even clutches.
I adore their mission, and I love their usability. Not a sponsored post (I really hate that I always have to clarify that), just wanted to share. Check them out next time you’re in need of a thoughtful and functional gift.
