As a middle school teacher, I see not only how important it is for teens to fit in, but also to stand out and Valley Flower Company and Post in White River Junction are great places to shop for teens to do just that, providing unique products teens would love.
Creating an Awesome Room
Your room is your sanctuary, your getaway from the world, when you’re a teen. It’s the place you congregate with your friends, squished on the bed or sprawled on the floor. So decor is important.
Both stores have unique items that would look cool. I like the fabric frames, which a worker at Valley Flower Co. says college students use to decorate their dorm rooms. As a side note, I bet the wrapping paper in the picture would be great for book covers at school.
You can also get a little catcus. Add some greenery to your room without much maintenance at all. Score!
(PS. It’s important to note that Valley Flower Co. makes amazing floral arrangements; they did the flowers for my wedding and I received lots of compliments. Make sure to check out their website or facebook page for some floral eye candy!)
I especially like the super cool decorative hooks at POST. I saw them and immediately thought of my students and how much they would love having something so unique like that in their room.
Pens, pencils, and paper supplies are daily necessity for teens, but POST has you covered. So make sure you stop by POST if you need to stock up, buy a present, or get ready at back to school time. They have cool pencil cases too.
Here’s a great layout from POST’s instagram of their pencil cases and other supplies. Definitely check out their instagram for more great photos of their inventory. POST’s instagram is so fun to look at; the layouts are so creative and make me smile.
Just for Fun
One of the reasons I love teaching middle school teens is because they make me laugh. They also like to make each other laugh.
At Valley Flower Co. I really enjoyed these cards, especially the scruffy face one. I don’t think a lot of students would get the Queen reference in the card next to it though…
Sometimes the name of the product can make you laugh. This candle scent definitely grabs you’re attention and it even smells fabulous, so if you go into Valley Flower Co. you gotta smell the Unicorn Puke candle.
POST also has a funny cards, luggage tags, and even mugs.
So while these are stores I think teens would love for fun gifts, they’re also stores that can brighten anyone’s day. I can’t wait to do some shopping at both.
