Back to school means change for parents and children alike. Whether it’s their first day of kindergarten or first day of their senior year, these times of change can be challenging and maybe even a little scary. Sometimes a thoughtful gift can help ease the tension and offer encouragement for a great year ahead.
When the kids head off to college it’s a big change that brings excitement, tears, anxiety, joy, and a whole host of other emotions. Their lives are changing completely, and in many ways the parents’ lives are, too. Whether they’re going locally or across the nation, a basket stuffed full of snacks and gifts may be just what they need to ease those jitters.
If they have a favorite stuffed animal or other sentimental item from childhood, bring it with you to Lilygrass flowers and decor for inspiration or even to work into their surprise basket. Candy and a cute little hedgehog will brighten anyone’s day. Snacks and fruit, or even coffee and tea to help with those late nights of studying, will be sure to brighten any college student’s day.
Teachers are the foundation of education for kiddos, and it’s great to acknowledge them for their hard work and sacrifice. Flower and gift baskets are a great idea for that special teacher spending hours before and after class to create a great learning experience for their students. A bright bouquet of colorful flowers for their desk would be a pleasant surprise to start the school year. Or consider filling a gift basket with school supplies and include a handmade card and pen with a supportive note inside.
Don’t forget to show support for moms sending one of their kids to school for the first time. Whether it’s their first child or their last, it can be stressful sending a little one to school for the first time. Calm her anxiety with a basket full of candy, lotions, lip balms, and soothing teas. There are also a variety of cute mugs in our shop for a little bit of sunshine when dropping off or waving from the bus stop.
Change is constant. It comes whether we want it to or not. So why not ease the transition and brighten someone’s day with a sweet surprise from Lilygrass flowers and decor.
