  • Back to School Gifts: Teacher Appreciation Candles

    Hard to believe, but summer is almost over and the kids are heading back to school!  A nice way to kick off the school year is to give your child’s new teacher a “Back to School” gift.  It’s the perfect ice breaker for the first day of school and a token of your appreciation for the love, support, and knowledge the teacher will provide throughout the coming year.

    Scented Candle Teacher Thank You Gift

    What do you give you might ask?  We’ve got the solution!  Our apple-scented and teacher inspired candles, #1 Teacher and Teacher Thank You, paired with a basket of school supplies or a gift card to Wal-Mart or The Dollar Store (teachers often pay out of pocket for their own school supplies), makes for thoughtful gifts sure to warm the hearts of teachers everywhere.

    Scented Candle #1 Teacher Gift

    Get the kids involved in the gift giving as well!  This will give them a better understanding of the child/ teacher relationship and allow them to further appreciate the new person giving them direction and order.  So get your pens and pencils ready, it’s time for homework and school projects again!

    Why are apples associated with teachers?
    Symbolism – The apple is a symbol of variety, change, and growth.  Without love and support, the fruit becomes bitter and undesirable.

    History – Dating back to the 16th century, in countries such as Denmark, Sweden and the United States, educators were often paid by the parents with foods such as fruit and potatoes (teachers didn’t earn enough to sustain the cost of living).  At the time apples were considered a “luxury” fruit as they were difficult to plant, cultivate and harvest.  Teachers were made to feel special when gifted with an apple.

    The Bible – Teachers and the apple are also often associated with the special story in the Bible, in which Eve ate the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge.
