Gift Ideas for Teachers

Teachers rock.  They work so hard and are often not fully appreciated for all that they do during and after school hours.  Show them some love and let them know how much they have meant to your child!

Here are some ideas for the teacher in your life!

1.  A Heartfelt Letter

The best thing that you can give to a teacher is a heartfelt letter thanking them for the help that they have given your child.  Use specific examples of the positive growth and changes that you have seen in your child.

Dandy Lions has an assortment of beautiful stationary perfect for a sweet, meaningful letter.

2. A Gift Directly From Your Child

What could mean more than a gift that has been hand picked by a student?  Teachers treasure specific, thoughtful gifts that come directly from the students they pour their lives into.

Come shop our boutique for unique, beautiful gifts!  We’ve got what you’re looking for!

3. Something Really Great for the Classroom…or help!!

Teachers love help.  At the end of the year a high school student could stay after with a friend one day and help their teacher clean up and organize so that she too can get started on summer.  Or the parent of an elementary student could volunteer in the classroom!

These are just a few tips for the teacher in your life!  Come check us out for gift inspiration!  We are located in beautiful Maryville, TN!  Shop us online, or look us up on Facebook!  Also, be sure to follow us on Instagram for updates and new items!

Handwritten Letters in 2017

Handwritten things are wonderful. They add a warm, personal touch that type just doesn’t have. It shows the person that you care enough about them to take the time to write something by hand.

What an awesome goal for 2017!  Let’s add a personal touch into our friends and families lives.  A text, phone call, or e-mail just isn’t as sweet or thoughtful as a beautiful handwritten note.

At Dandy Lions, it all started with our beautiful, unique stationary.

Come see us or contact us if you have any questions!  See you soon!

Habits of a Thoughtful Gift Giver

‘Tis the season for giving.  Looking to get in touch with your generous side? Embrace these habits of a truly thoughtful gift giver.

The thoughtful gift giver plans ahead of time.

Considerate gift giving is as much about planning as it is about how well you know the person.  What are there interests?  What is their personality like?  Get to know the wants as well as the needs of those you are buying for.

Thoughtful gift givers don’t focus on cost.

The practice of thoughtful giving offers a wealth of benefits, but that doesn’t mean givers should focus on big price tags. In fact, thoughtful gift givers should not dwell on the cost of presents.  Isn’t compassion what this time of year is all about? So don’t worry if you don’t have a lot to spend. Instead, get creative.

They make gifts personal.

Gifting is an opportunity to let a person know how much you appreciate and love them, and it also shows how well you know them.

Take time to listen to people.  Remember the little things.

And they enjoy giving more than receiving.

Nothing beats the feeling of giving a gift.   Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbra found that people would rather take on costs themselves in order to help others.

 

Here at Dandy Lions, we want to help you be the perfect gift giver this year, and in the years to come!  Stop by and see what we have to offer to you, and the special people in your life!
