Over the next few weeks, I’ll be making some suggestions of possible sources of gifts for the teachers in your life. Some will be products for purchase. Some will be ideas of things to make. All of them will be meant to help remember teachers as worthy of thanks.
A few weeks ago, a small cardboard box showed up at my door. While I didn’t know what it held, I knew from whence it came.
It was my first blissmo box, and I recommend it for your consideration as a gift for a classroom teacher.
- for $19 US each month, you choose from one of three themed boxes curated by the folks at blissmo
- each box is filled with between $25-$50 (or more) worth of merchandise
- the products are “either certified as organic or eco-friendly, or that have a people & planet positive approach in the DNA of the business”
- either keep all the products for yourself or hand them out to your friends as gifts
I was gifted 3 months of blissmo boxes by a friend, and I loved the first one. Guest-curated by the folks at Good, it included:
- a $25 gift from PACT underwear (I used it on socks)
- a miir water bottle ($1 of each bottle sold “provides one person with clean water for one year)
- organic, small-farm-grown tea from the folks at runa
- a set of To-Go-Ware bamboo utensils in a pouch made from upcycled plastic bottles (it lives in my backpack and has already saved me from using at least 10 sets of plastic silverware)
- a 3-pack of notebooks from Scout Books made of 100% recylced paper, printed with soy ink and sourced from local paper mills (think eco-responsible moleskins)
I was a little worried I wouldn’t dig every item that showed up. My worry was misplaced. You can gift a blissmo box here or sign a recipient up directly here. While my thinking is running along the lines of teacher gifts, these would be a great monthly care package for college students as well.
