Back to school time is a time when it is easy to get stressed and caught up with everything that needs to get done. After a long summer break, students need to get back in the habit of waking up early and concentrating on school work. To help make their transition a little easier, why not give your student a small gift of encouragement for going back to school?

Our School Memories paperweight is the perfect desk accessory for students to help them with organization. It is a thoughtful gift that can help a student organize papers and schoolwork on his or her desk. It is easy to get overwhelmed and lose track of homework, but setting up a specific place for these papers is a great way to keep track of everything. This paperweight is not only useful, but also an attractive keepsake to keep on a desk year round.


Apples have long been a symbol of teachers and school, so our Teacher’s Apple paperweight is also a great keepsake for students, teachers or other scholastic professionals. This lovely paperweight would make a wonderful gift for any teacher to help organize papers or simply be displayed on his or her desk.
