Believe it or not, but a pineapple stands for hospitality.. Yup, isn’t that awesome?!
The legend began with the sea captains of New England, who sailed among the Caribbean Islands and returned to the colonies bearing their cargo of fruits, spices and rum. According to the legend, the captain would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside his home to let his friends know of his safe return from sea. The pineapple was an invitation for them to visit, share his food and drinks, and listen to tales of his voyage. The pineapple has been a universal symbol of hospitality and welcome for many centuries all over the world.
A classic – and in our view, perfect – little gift.
