Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2-6 this year which is right around the corner. I have 3 kids in school so my family will be recognizing the efforts of several teachers very soon. My daughter’s first grade teacher was gracious enough to also share her thoughts on this month’s subscription box. (Thank you so much, Miss K!)
Pampered Teacher sent us this sample subscription box for review so it is not customized for a particular teacher. When you subscribe to Pampered Teacher, a few profile questions are asked so the box can be customized for the individual teacher:
Desired Style: Classic, Trendy, Eclectic
Type of Teacher: Elementary school teacher; Middle school teacher; High school teacher; Special Ed; Reading Specialist; Administration; Librarian; Counselor; Phys. Ed.
Hair accessory preferences: long hair; medium to short hair; do not use hair accessories
Pierced ears: pierced; not pierced; I don’t know.
Allergies: Peanut/Tree Nut; Chocolate; Soy; None of the above
An additional place to put notes or details you want to share.
Pampered Teacher also offers a box curated especially towards male teachers although I believe female teachers would appreciate the items in it as well.
The subscription box was nicely presented with tissue paper and secured with alphabet-themed washi tape.
Reusable Parfait Cup – Retail Value $6.50 on Amazon (Retail Price $12.50)
This is a 12 ounce reusable yogurt bottle with a separate divider in the cover for toppings and a spoon. (These are sold by Amazon in a 2 pack so I divided that price in half here.) Miss K said that she believes this item would probably be used by teachers and that she personally brings yogurt to school a couple of times a week.
Silicone Pointer Bookmark – Retail Value $3?
I am estimating the value here since Amazon sells 6 of these for $14.99. Miss K said that this was a nice item that may be used in class if it was received as a gift.
Jewelry – Retail Value?
Miss K said that pierced earrings are not super practical for all teachers. However, since this is a sample box and the profile settings allow you to customize whether the teacher has pierced ears this will help make sure the item will be useful for the recipient. It is nice that these earrings come in a Pampered Teacher-branded box. Since I have no idea what these are made out of or how much they are worth, I am listing unknown as the value here.
Alphabet Stickers – Retail Value $3-4?
These are very cute, acid free, flocked cardstock letter stickers. Since I can only find these sold wholesale in massive lots with a unit price of around $1 depending on how many you want to purchase, and I have seen similar stickers in craft stores that sell for around $3-4, I am going with the higher retail value here. Miss K said these are nice for primary K-2 grade teachers, but not applicable for higher grades. (Since this subscription box has a customizable profile, the grade taught could be noted there.)
Mini Framed Cork Board and Fabric Pushpins – Retail Value $5?
This is a cute little cork board with fabric pushpins that could be used for posting short notes or small pictures. I can’t find anything similar enough to it to know the exact price, but my guess is about $5, although I could easily be wrong. Miss K said that in her opinion this is too small to use in the classroom.
COSMOS Creations Salted Caramel Premium Puffed Corn – Retail Value $1-2
This is an individual serving size of oven-baked, non-GMO salted caramel corn. I am estimating the value based on similar snacks from this same company. Miss K said this snack would be fine for teachers and that other good snacks would be nuts, trail mix, dried fruit, or a protein bar.
Verdict: It is difficult for me to know the exact retail value of this box since several of the items I had to guess the value on, but I believe it probably is close to the cost of the subscription box itself, not counting the free shipping that is also included. I think this could be a good box for teachers especially if you customize the profile for the individual teacher recipient.
