Give a Living Gift to Thank a Teacher

As a teacher, I always loved receiving a little plant. Succulents are very popular right now and budget friendly too. If you are like me, you may have a little planter or something small that would hold a little soil and plant that would be cute. These succulents are so pretty when grouped too.
