An apple for the teacher has a long history in movies, songs, and schools around the world, but how did this tradition start? There are a few suggested possibilities, such as the theory that Adam and Eve’s Tree of Knowledge was an apple tree, or that early pioneer teachers were often paid in produce from the farm settler families whose children had the privilege of attending school. Today, the apple is a sign of welcome on the first day of school, and a message of appreciation on the last day of the year to tell the teacher what her dedication and work has meant to you and your children. Our solid clear crystal apple is a beautiful gift, and a wonderful way to express your gratitude to the best teacher in the world! It has a flat face in the front that is perfect for laser-engraving a personalized message. The apple is elegant, and just 3 ¼”x2 ¼”, so it’s the perfect size to stay on the school desk for years to come. We will package it in an attractive gift box that is suitable for your presentation day, and we’ll send it with our full Satisfaction and Performance Guarantee, because we know you’re going to be delighted with the quality and craftsmanship of this gift item!
