Hey, you! Yes, that’s right, I’m calling all of you looking to gift something to your lunch lady at school. They are the kindest people ever, and they believe that everything starts and ends with a fine meal! Lunch ladies do massive work in school kitchens; they make sure all students receive their meals and everything is healthy and of good quality according to specific standards. They spend all day on their feet and wear an apron like a medal. Here is the list of suggestions to end your search.

  1. Christmas T-shirt
    Your lunch lady will love this gift: she will wear the Christmas T-shirt throughout all seasons, not just over Christmas. After all, when someone is Santa’s favorite lunch lady - they are everyone’s favorite lunch lady! The world deserves to know, and the way your lunch lady will wear it, it will know all right!
  2. Cartoon Snowflake Ornament
    The cartoon snowflake ornament acknowledges all the hard work lunch ladies do in our school cafeterias. One can hang this piece of memory over a rearview mirror or a school Christmas tree. Lunch ladies maybe do the most of their work quietly in the school kitchens, but they will appreciate a small token of attention like this.

    Crocs
    Lunch ladies are always on their feet. They are cooking for hundreds and hundreds of students by manipulating extra-large, industrial cans with heavy ingredients. No job of theirs finishes while sitting. The crocs are simple but comfortable and breathing shoes, easy to maintain, and supportive to one’s feet. Just what your lunch lady needs!
  4. Lunch Lady Apron
    First, we drink coffee. Then we feed the kids. It is all the philosophy there is behind the lunch lady occupation. Or is it? The truth is that aside from giving food to children and drinking coffee, there is a great deal of hard work. And where there is hard work in the kitchen - there are stains of food-finding their way to clothes and shoes. One way to protect oneself is to have a durable apron to cover what is mostly the first line of staining. An apron with a supportive message is a kind gift for your lunch lady!
  5. Coffee Mug
    They say that the best path to someone’s heart is through their stomach. What it means in practical terms is that lunch ladies are not only queens of the lunch scene (as the message on the mug says) but absolute superheroes of our childhood! And when the time comes for them to take a break and enjoy it with a coffee or tea - this mug is priceless. Sure, any cup will do, but this mug will warm both hands and hearts. A perfect sign of appreciation!

All products come in a Burt’s Bees tin, known for its firmness and longevity. This set is a true gift of care and affection.
