Swoozie’s Top Teacher’s Gifts!

There’s no denying it – teachers are AMAZING. They fill our children’s minds with knowledge; they care for our little ones; they’re inspirational. It makes us SO happy when kids come in to Swoozie’s to pick out gifts for their teachers. They’re always so eager to pick out something special! We just love their excitement.

To show our appreciation for teachers – and to help you get an idea of the gifts they love – we recently hosted a Teacher’s shopping night at Swoozie’s of Buckhead. We invited a group of teachers from Kids R Kids Mableton in to enjoy some cookies, pink champagne, and pick out their favorite gifts (under $25!) that they would love to receive for the holidays!

Many of the teachers agreed that they LOVE getting holiday-themed items from their students. Holiday-themed gifts are the types of items that are the most fun and that they wouldn’t normally purchase for themselves. They also love how excited their students are to give them these gifts. Here are a couple of our teachers’ top-picks for their favorite holiday gifts!

Shanna’s Picks:

Shanna LOVES getting holiday-themed gifts from her students. Her favorite item from Swoozie’s is the holiday tumbler! Here are some of Shanna’s top-picks:

Sandi’s Picks:

Sandi prefers gifts that she can use year-round. From bags to notebooks, she picked out all kinds of fun, practical items! Her favorite Swoozie’s item is the Collapsible Picnic Basket. Here are some of Sandi’s top-picks:

Amanda’s Picks:

Like Shanna, Amanda loves to receive holiday-themed gifts from her students! She picked out some fabulous items, including her favorite: The Christmas Mug with a lid and spoon! Here are some of Amanda’s top-picks:

As a thank you to our fabulous teachers, we let each one of them take home their favorite item from their lists! It was a magnificent night and we loved getting all of their feedback on the best gifts for teachers.

What gift will you be getting for your teachers this year?

April 27th is Administrative Professional’s Day!

You know the ones. The people who work hard to make your organization operate. They deserve much more than one day of recognition. But, that’s what makes tomorrow so fabulous. On April 27th, companies across the globe will be celebrating the contribution of their professionals.

Administrative Professional’s Day actually started back in 1952. Much has changed since then, but one thing remains the same, the people who put in the time and hard work to make an organization run are just as important as ever. In fact, today in light of the economy, employees are pitching in more and more, putting in longer hours and giving as much as they are able to their companies. And, in this ‘information age’, the organizations that we are a part of are more of a community than an employer.

Take a few minutes tomorrow to say, “Thank you” to the people around you whom you count on every day to make things happen and to contribute to the livelihood of your ‘community’/organization. They keep your day interesting, they are your friends and often times your family and they are always there for you in a crunch.

Whether you leave your coworkers, colleagues and assistants a simple note on their desk in the morning or you give them a gracious gift, it’s the thought, recognition and effort that counts.

To everyone out there who positively contributes to an organization (aka community), we’re celebrating you! Cheers to a job well done!


 

What Teachers Want: A Swoozerific Teacher Panel Tells All

At Swoozie’s, we love our teachers. I myself have three kids. And, at one point in my life, they were all in school at the same time here in Atlanta. They all went to our local Warren T. Jackson, and later two went to Woodward. I have always had a huge respect for our teachers and thanking them in the proper way is important gesture. They take care of our kids, inspire them, educate them, influence them and help to mold them. They are such important people.

Now, all my kids have graduated from high school, and I am no longer surrounded by students, teachers, PTA members and volunteers. So, in an effort to connect with our local teachers, we reached out to a group of five teachers in the community (who are also Swoozie’s shoppers), our Swoozerific Teacher Panel.

They met us at the store; we equipped them with a (personalized) clipboard, note pad and a pen and sent them to shop. We asked them to pick out what they would LOVE to receive from their students. They could pick out whatever they wanted from our selection here at Swoozie’s. They expressed it so well when they said, “We want something awesome that we wouldn’t normally buy for ourselves”.

These teachers are about to take the summer off; and just like you and me, they will be taking trips to the beach, the lake, the mountains and everywhere in between. They will be entertaining friends, hitting the pool and getting the r&r they so clearly deserve. So, when you are making your teacher gift list, think about the teacher and where she or he will be spending time and what they will be doing this summer. Selecting gifts that are relevant to their lifestyle is key.

So, bottom line, our advice is to ‘say no to the apple’ and chose something for your children’s teachers that is functional, fabulous, can be used on summer trips, for entertaining or for pampering themselves. Give them something that you would love to receive.

We had a great afternoon with our local ‘Swoozerific Teacher Panel’ here at Swoozie’s. They give so much to our children; we are thrilled to be the place where parents find teacher gifts to show them their gratitude.
