The Teacher Trove

The Mini Trove Subscription Pouch

Not sure what to get your teacher?

Let us choose for you! What's more fun than getting a pouch full of surprises every month? (Or even just one time?)

The Teacher Trove is run by teachers who understand what teachers like.

(Please note: The Mini Trove is geared toward female teachers. Although many items are gender-neutral, many are not - like lip balms, earrings and scarves.)

What comes in the pouch?

3 to 5 high quality, creative items to add a little flair to your classroom! Some things we've included before:

  • Erasable pens & highlighters from Pilot (they really work!)
  • Notepads with art or affirmations
  • Desktop organizers
  • Fun paper clips, board magnets or push pins
  • Gratitude journal (original design)
  • Teacher socks, hair ties, earrings
  • Page flags & note tabs
  • Lanyards & keychains

We try to source from smaller manufacturers (for instance, teacher creators on Etsy), so more of our products will delight and surprise you - although, smaller shops are not our only source (for instance, we were impressed with some of the products from the well-known company Pilot.)

The products change every month!

Is it grade specific?

The pouch is aimed at K-12 teachers, but beyond that it’s not specific to any grade. 

How does it work / When does it ship?

  • Place your order now for next month's Mini Trove.
  • It ships on the 4th (or next business day). You get it by the 8th (usually sooner.)
  • *** We will email you a gift letter to print, so if you want to give this gift before the 4th of next month, you’ll have something in hand to give!***
  • If a subscription, you'll be charged again on the 11th.
  • Example: 
    • You order on December 15th.
    • Your order ships January 4th. You get it by January 8th.
    • You're charged again January 11th, for February 4th's Mini Trove.

Can I buy just one?

For sure! There's an option for One Time Only.

Can I prepay?

Definitely. We have 3 month and 6 month options available.

If it's a gift, will you include a gift note?

Yes! At checkout, there is an area for writing a note to your teacher. We will print out a letter explaining what the Mini Trove is, how many months were purchased, and your note. (We handwrite the note on your behalf.)

How do I cancel?

You can log in to your account any time to cancel.

Cancel before the 11th and you will not be charged again.

Cancel between the 11th and the end of the month, and you'll get next month's Mini Trove but none after that. (Email us if you want to cancel and get a refund before the shipment.)

Do you allow refunds?

Yes! We will refund the whole Mini Trove within 60 days of its arrival. (We can't accept partial shipments for partial refunds.)

If you want to return the Mini Trove for any reason, email us for a return label. We'll purchase the return label and email it to you to print out, tape to the Mini Trove and drop back in the USPS to us. Once we receive all items in original condition, we will process a full refund.

Where do you ship?

Currently, only in the US. We hope to add Canada soon.
