Oh Joy! for CALPAK Suitcases

From far off destinations to quick weekend trips, we've made baggage claims around the world more colorful one suitcase at a time ;) To celebrate, here's a look back at some of our favorite Oh Joy! for CALPAK pieces...

Oh Joy Gift Guide: Gifts for Teachers!

 

2018_Oh-Joy_teachers_guide

Teachers are the best! This time of year, I often get asked what's a good gift to give teachers? They spend all day teaching our kids how to be smart and be good people, so nothing really seems like enough. But, I've put together a few of my favorite things to give ranging from $9-60. Now, keep in mind, some schools collect cash gifts to distribute, so you may already have it covered. And, I know that gift cards to a local coffee shop or Target are also popular teacher gifts. But, if you are looking for a physical, tangible gift here are some of my favorites in a range of price points and keeping in mind various ages of teachers, too!

1. Otherland candle ($36) for relaxing outside of the classroom, 2. Enevu Cube Light for the science teacher who has everything, 03. ($30)Odd Pear socks ($22) to add fun to every day, 4. Oh Joy x Erin Condren Petit Journal ($9) and Teacher Lesson Planner ($60) for keeping track of all the things, 5. Valerie chocolate bar ($10) because who doesn't like chocolate, 6. Ren Vois jewelry dish ($34), 7. Hana flower pencils by Trinus ($22) for the crafty teacher,  8. Solar-Powered Rainbow Maker by Kikkerland ($38) to add a rainbow to the classroom or their own home, 9. Rainbow multi-tool set by Kikkerland ($20) for the teacher who always fixes everything, 10. Studio DIY tee ($27) for a younger teacher who loves her relaxation time.
