The Mighty Little Acorn

Since we are quickly approaching the fall season I thought I would delve into the world of acorns today!

The acorn is a symbol of strength and power. In the fall, these tiny yet hardy little nuggets drop from the oak trees to land on the ground. Most will be eaten by passing wildlife, but a few will survive to form a new tree in the spring. Because the acorn only appears on a fully mature oak, it is often considered a symbol of the patience needed to attain goals over long periods of time. It represents perseverance and hard work.

Our Pocket Acorn measures approx. 1/2″ x 1/2″. It is cast in pewter from a real acorn. Legend has it that carrying a pocket acorn ensures a long life. It is the Nordic symbol of life. And, it is a helpful reminder that “Big things start small.”

We also carry a Son Blessing Coin that shows a cutout of an acorn and the back of the coin reads: “Mighty Oaks from Little Acorns Grow” just the perfect sentiment for the boys and men in our lives.
