It’s a fun reminder of that year of class and is sure to make the teacher smile each time they look over at it.

The pots look great with a hardy plant that the teacher (and the kids!) can easily look after. Lavender is a good option – as is aloe vera! They also look great with a mini Christmas tree and if uses as a whole class gift gift vouchers can be attached to the tree.

The pots also look great on a desk filled with pens, textas etc and we know teachers can never have enough stationary.
