May is for mothers, we know this, but did you also know it’s for nurses and teachers, too?
National Nurses Day and National Teachers Day have been around for decades, and this year, the week of May 6 through May 12 is officially dedicated to appreciating these remarkable people. These fields are dominated by women, but not just any women—these are often unsung heroes, the ones who educate, heal, nurture, protect and otherwise empower the rest of us. Zeidler’s Flowers thinks they deserve our thanks all year long, but this week, it’s particularly important to put something in their hands that will express what’s in your heart.
We love our little succulent garden for a nurse and teacher gift, and here’s why: You’re all but guaranteed it will fit on and at even the most cluttered teacher’s desk or nurse’s station. Succulents don’t present any real problems for allergies, and in both settings, plants are a welcome feature, since they help rid the air of toxins. The dancing butterflies overhead in this design add a cheerful, whimsical air to the whole piece, while the shabby chic drawer container lends even more character.
Make your thanks concrete in the form of a succulent gift to your super ladies. These long-lasting plants will be a constant reminder that you care.
