Did you figure out what my emoji subject line said?
TL;DR: Minnieology will close for a little road trip starting NOW. I’m excited to get out of the city and enjoy some new scenery.
I’m a one-woman shop, so orders will not ship while I’m out, but anything ordered on or after July 29th will ship the week of August 10th. While I’m on the road, feel free to use the code “vacay” for 15% off* for the entire purchase, and items will be shipped out the week of August 10th.
Consider this Minnieology’s first semi-annual sale of the year! This is great for those of you that haven’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 they’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:
🍷Someone who enjoys wine:
personalized wine glass
🍷A gift card to their nearest wine shop
🍷DIY Wine Blending kit - This is great to do at home where you create your very own customized wine blend.

“A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others.”
Has the pandemic opened your eyes to the role a teacher plays in your child’s life?
𝗙𝗔𝗖𝗧: 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 𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲 in 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 for teachers’ 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 child’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 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 is deeper than 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗯𝗲𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗲. REF: Economic Policy Institute
One 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗰𝘂𝗹𝗮𝗿 teacher has gone above and beyond for one of her students. After the school year ended, she called the parents and 𝘃𝗼𝗹𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗱 to tutor their child during the summer for a couple of hours a week. 𝗜 𝗿𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗮𝘁, SHE VOLUNTEERED TO HELP OUT OF THE KINDNESS OF HER HEART.
What a 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗵𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗻 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 𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗼 IMO, and I don’t even know her!
When someone 𝗴𝗶𝘃𝗲𝘀 their time to help you, you want to do something in return to show your 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻.
The student and parents picked up on things she loved, and we worked together to put together a lovely custom gift box.
🎁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 🦀 necklace
🎁She enjoys gardening - plantable paper wildflowers can remind her of her student(s) along with a gift card to her favorite garden store.
🎁A gift card from her favorite jewelry store, Kendra Scott
🎁Amazon gift card - what teacher or person wouldn’t appreciate this?
🎁Minnieology Soy Wax Candle for relaxing. Made from all-natural soy, a quality fragrance with no phthalates with a cotton wick.
