    The perfect holiday gift for teachers. Get one box of handpicked gifts or a subscription to the Pampered Teacher Box. Subscriptions come quarterly (4 times a year - back to school, Holiday, Spring and Summer). Boxes include fashion accessories, classroom appropriate jewelry, beauty products, cute classroom supplies and inspirational teacher quotes. It's a great way to show appreciation and say thank you from the students, parents or PTA.
