I remember wandering through a yard sale that was basically tables full of every sort of apple themed item you could imagine, all in pristine, — dare I say, unused?– condition.

This is where teacher gifts go to die.” my mom smirked sotto voce into my ear.

And while there is no doubt in my mind that it is a kind gesture to acknowledge the person who has spent the year molding and grooming your young one into a learned human, is another coffee mug the best way to do that?

I know the ceramic apple with the worm wearing a graduation cap comes from a place of love, but please, put it down. I have something better for you: Yoshi-Bella jewelry.

Yoshi-Bella has a really cool concept: customizable jewelry and accessories. Every piece can be changed to reflect the wearers’ mood and style simply by snapping in a new medallion. A necklace, bracelet, ring, earrings, headband or keychain and some of the beautiful baubles would make the perfect gift. If you are unsure where to look, try starting with the Teacher’s Pet collection. You could even go together with some of the other parents, with each family choosing a few medallions to personalize their gift!

The selection of medallions is almost unlimited. Glitzy and glamourous, sweet and pretty, earthy, animal lover? I guarantee you will find the perfect thing for the teacher in your life.

You will probably want to pick out something for yourself too…just sayin’.

As if finding a gift that will be used and enjoyed (no offense, ugly paperweight) isn’t enough, you can feel good about buying from Yoshi-Bella, as 10% of the sales go to a designated charity of the month.

A personalized teacher gift that benefits others and is gorgeous to boot! How do you like them apples?
