Sylvia Plath had the right idea when she said, “There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.” Treat your kid’s teacher to a luxurious soak with some sweet-smelling bath salts, like French Girl’s Sea Soak in rose and ylang-ylang.
Sea Soak, $18 at French Girl
Double-duty marble wine cooler/vase
No one likes drab flowers or white wine that’s room temp, but everyone appreciates the freedom of choice. This beautiful marble vessel doubles as both a wine cooler and a flower vase so the teacher in your life can have it while also being the envy of every houseguest.
