Today was my daughter's last day at school. It's a bittersweet day; she accomplished her first year of preschool and passed with flying colors but she will also have to say goodbye to some of her dearest little friends for the summer. She'll also have to say goodbye to her first teacher, Mrs. W who is amazing. To honor Mrs. W., the class parents and I got together and made up a little gift for her. We called it, "Thank you for helping our children GROW!"

I started thinking that this would make an awesome teacher gift, graduation gift, anniversary, late Mother's Day gift or birthday gift. You can buy 5-6 gift cards in any amount, mount them to small Popsicle sticks with tape or hot glue and pop them into a potted plant. We got everything at Walmart in the Craft and Home and Garden section.
