August Happenings


Hey Yโ€™all,


Did you figure out what my emoji subject line said?


TL;DR: Minnieology will close for a little road trip starting NOW. Iโ€™m excited to get out of the city and enjoy some new scenery.


Iโ€™m a one-woman shop, so orders will not ship while Iโ€™m out, but anything ordered on or after July 29th will ship the week of August 10th. While Iโ€™m on the road, feel free to use the code โ€œvacayโ€ for 15% off* for the entire purchase, and items will be shipped out the week of August 10th.


Consider this Minnieologyโ€™s first semi-annual sale of the year! This is great for those of you that havenโ€™t had a chance to try the hand-poured soy wax candles, reed diffusers, or pre-packaged gift boxes.


P.S. If you are a planner like me, you can order gift boxes up to 6 months in advance, add the delivery by date in the notes when you check out. Set it and forget it!


FYI: Minnieology scents rotate regularly...meaning they may or may not come back until the next season.


Wine Gift Ideas


Does gift-giving stress you out because you have no idea what to give that's meaningful?


Sometimes it takes me some time to come up with the perfect gift.


I like to think through when I'm coming up with a custom gift or putting together something for my people. I use the order notes to consider what they like and how I can thoughtfully curate gift items that theyโ€™ll use or enjoy.


Conversations are key if you don't know what to get someone, and helps you to give them what they want rather than what you think they want.


Here's an example for the wine lover:

๐ŸทSomeone who enjoys wine:

personalized wine glass

๐ŸทA gift card to their nearest wine shop

๐ŸทDIY Wine Blending kit - This is great to do at home where you create your very own customized wine blend.

Custom Box Spotlight


โ€œA good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others.โ€

Has the pandemic opened your eyes to the role a teacher plays in your childโ€™s life?


๐—™๐—”๐—–๐—ง: The closing of schools affected 4 million teachers and 55 million students (K-12), and has forced them to adjust to remote learning.


The results of a recent online survey of ~2,000 parents from OnePoll and Osmo show an ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ฒ in ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป for teachersโ€™ work.


The poll found that:

-80% have a newfound respect for teachers

-77% believe that teachers should be paid more

-69% believe being a teacher is harder than their current job

-53% will take a greater interest in their childโ€™s education after the stay-at-home mandate concludes.


But amidst the pain so many are enduring is a bright spot: Some teachers feel that the ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป is deeper than ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ. REF: Economic Policy Institute


One ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฟ teacher has gone above and beyond for one of her students. After the school year ended, she called the parents and ๐˜ƒ๐—ผ๐—น๐˜‚๐—ป๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ to tutor their child during the summer for a couple of hours a week. ๐—œ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜, SHE VOLUNTEERED TO HELP OUT OF THE KINDNESS OF HER HEART.


What a ๐—ด๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐—ต๐˜‚๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป she is to recognize that her student needed one-on-one time, especially after the school year was turned upside down, and lesson plans were thrown out the window overnight!


She's an ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ผ IMO, and I donโ€™t even know her!


When someone ๐—ด๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐˜€ their time to help you, you want to do something in return to show your ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป.


The student and parents picked up on things she loved, and we worked together to put together a lovely custom gift box.


๐ŸŽShe calls her students Mexican Crabs, we don't know the meaning behind it but wanted to pay tribute to it with a little crab ๐Ÿฆ€ necklace

๐ŸŽShe enjoys gardening - plantable paper wildflowers can remind her of her student(s) along with a gift card to her favorite garden store.

๐ŸŽA gift card from her favorite jewelry store, Kendra Scott

๐ŸŽAmazon gift card - what teacher or person wouldnโ€™t appreciate this?

๐ŸŽMinnieology Soy Wax Candle for relaxing. Made from all-natural soy, a quality fragrance with no phthalates with a cotton wick.
