The Ultimate Children's Design Resource


Giveaway + Free Printables: “Spraying Good Cheer” with Method

Starbucks card? Candle? Bath salts? Travel mug? I tend to run through the same old items in my head for my children’s teacher gifts year after year. Sound familiar? This holiday season, however, I challenged myself (and now you!) to give something “extra-ordinary” with the help of our long-time partner method.

My eldest is in the New York City public school system. Kindergarten has been a big wake-up call for this easygoing preschool mom. No longer do I linger in the classroom at drop off and chat with the other parents and teachers while my youngest runs circles around his older brother and his classmates. It’s more like pack a lunch, get last week’s library book into the backpack and get him through the school’s front doors by 8:15 or it’s me reporting to the principal’s office! But the biggest shock came when I realized that basic items like hand sanitizer and certain cleaning supplies are not readily available in the classroom. These incredibly important items are often on the teacher’s wish list for the class-parent to rally or else it comes out of his or her own pocket. And with fifty germy little hands in one room, these products are an absolute necessity!

That’s when method came to the rescue. The people against dirty donated cases of all-purpose cleaning spray, hand soap and hand sanitizer to me so I could pass them along to my son’s classroom making for a thoughtful teacher’s gift.

And with that, I tapped my friend and PN Design Expert, party stylist Rebekah Dempsey to whip up some holiday tags this season so we could all “Spray Good Cheer” together.

So whether it’s for your child’s teacher, a house-warming or hostess gift, I challenge you, dear readers, to think about giving the ever so necessary, eco-friendly and chic “Gift of Clean” this holiday season from method. And dare I say, “Spray it Forward”?

WIN IT! Now you can give the gift of clean too! Three Project Nursery readers will win a $40 prize package each of Project Nursery’s holiday cleaning picks by method. Prize package includes hand soap, dish pump, all-purpose cleaner, 50 load laundry detergent and 24 count smarty dish in assorted scents.

  • Yolanda Long

    Pinned here: http://pinterest.com/pin/87468417734546559. I would definitely give it to my mom’s classroom! She’s a TA for Special Needs high schoolers, and this gift would be perfect for all (students and teachers) in class including the in-class rest room. Once the first bell has started in the AM, she and the teacher don’t have a chance to leave the classroom, so winning this would certainly brighten and freshen up even their most challenging days. I witnessed the love they have for these kids when I was fortunate to visit the classroom last week. The kids were reading, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” and after reading time I helped my mom with a student on her multiplication (we finished the 11s) before it was time to leave.

  • Jenelle Altenbach

    I would give my sister-in-law the all purpose natural surface cleaner not only is she a full time nurse she’s a full time mommy with three boys ages 5, 2, and 8 months. I feel this product is a quick safe way for her to do cleaning in her very busy house.
