A twist on the tradition of giving an apple to a teacher is to give a crystal apple award instead. Crystal apples are obviously longer lasting than real apples and because they are made out of crystal, they have a great surface for engraving. With their reflective qualities and smooth surface, crystal apples make a beautiful addition to a teacher's desk.

Crystal Apple Awards Across the Country

Crystal Apple Awards are given away by many prestigious organizations across the country including the American Association of School Librarians, Indiana State Teachers' Association, Time Warner Cable, Purdue University and others. The symbolism of the apple for the teacher makes this type of award popular for honoring excellence in education. A crystal apple is immediately recognized as a sign of an exceptional teacher.

However, crystal apples are not only for large organizations to give away. They are actually surprisingly affordable and can be customized as a gift for a special teacher. For those looking for gifts for their child's teacher, these are beautiful gifts to show how much you respect and appreciate their work.

When choosing the right crystal apple for an individual or a group, there will be a number of different options available. There are clear crystal apples or ones that are made with a red tint that look more like real apples. There are also apples that stand alone and could possibly have a dual usage as paperweights. Crystal apples also come on a base. The bases can also be engraved to make the award even more personal.
