As a kid, I loved going back-to-school shopping with my mom. Even if we didn't have much money to spend, it got me excited about the promise of the school year ahead. Now that I'm out of school, I don't have any reason to buy notebooks and pencils—but The Tree House still brings back that sense of elementary-school excitement.
Philosophy's The Tree House ($25) is a new kit for hands. Housed inside a cardboard treehouse are two mini-sized products: An Apple A Day hand wash and hand cream. Both have the scent of a crisp red delicious apple, and 100% of net proceeds go directly to PBS Kids. The limited-edition set is available only online and at Macy's. It would be a sweet back-to-school gift for a teacher. What do you think?
