Six ways that you can help a West Virginia small business and spoil the teachers.
After a tumultuous and unprecedented year in education, make sure your children’s teachers feel the love. Teacher Appreciation Week kicks off on May 3, followed by Teacher Appreciation Day on May 4. Show your appreciation with one of these ideas any teacher will love.
2. Buy them a cup of coffee, or a month’s worth. Local coffee shops that would love to sell you a gift card include: Terra Cafe, The Grind, Quantum Bean Coffee, Blue Moose Cafe, and Almost Heaven Desserts & Coffee Shop. Is your child’s teacher not a coffee drinker? Snag a gift card from The Tea Shoppe at the Seneca Center.
4. Send them a gift card to an office supply store that can be used when they prepare their classrooms again in the fall. Order a gift card from James & Law Co. in Clarksburg, Adams Office Supply in Fairmont, or Wheeling Office Supply in Wheeling.
5. Treat them to a mani or pedi, or both, at a local spa. Consider Tuscan Sun Spa with locations in Clarksburg, Fairmont, and Morgantown, Mountain Laurel Spa in Roanoke, Hillbrook Inn & Spa in Charles Town, or The West Spa at Oglebay.
6. Spoil them by sending the best of West Virginia directly to their doorstep—or classroom. Order a WV Loving Local box and show some love to local businesses around the state while shipping a perfectly handcrafted and curated box to them. Our favorite boxes include the WV Sweet Loving Box—perfect for any sweet tooth—and the Taste of WV Loving Box that includes gourmet treats from the Mountain State.
