Reinventing the Apple – Graduation Gifts for Teachers and Students from Sweettrio

Graduation season is upon us – with many accomplishments to celebrate. Amid all of the new beginnings, don’t forget the people who helped you start writing your life story. Gifts for your teachers, professors or even classmates can be both extraordinary and affordable with Sweettrio. Doesn’t a truly special teacher deserve more than another paperweight shaped like an apple?

What is the origin of giving teachers apples? Apples were first brought to America as a small, bitter fruit that was used to make hard cider. When the temperance movement grew and alcohol production shrank, farmers bred larger and sweeter versions of the fruit for eating. Teachers on the American frontier were often fed and provided for by their students and families – and thus the tradition of bringing apples to teachers was born. wisconsin_graduation_gift_ideas_large
