I love succulents, they are super cute little plants that can be set indoors or outside, require very little maintenance, and make easy plant gift ideas for teachers!

Complete with a gift tag that says “thanks for helping me grow,” the succulent in a mug is a cute personalized two in one gift idea: the succulent serves as a plant that the recipient can use as a decoration, and if the plant dies or they end up re-potting it, they’ll have a nice mug to use for the rest of their days!

If you’re looking for some ideas for DIY teacher’s gifts, our succulent gift is such a cute one. Make this fun succulent in a mug gift for your favorite teacher to say, “Thanks for helping me grow!”

Materials needed for this potted plant teacher gift:

Beautiful succulents in pots, honey + lime

Step 1: Remove the succulent from its pot

First, you’ll have to make sure your mug is nice and clean. Carefully loose the succulent out of the container it came in. You may have to slip your fingers or a fork down the sides of the plant to do so. Be careful, the dirt is full of the plant’s roots and you don’t want to sever them.

Step 2: Measure and tie the twine to the mug

Transfer the succulent to your mug. You may have to pack it down a bit, and if there is a ton of extra space, add some extra soil and position the plant how you’d like it to look. Now, measure a piece of twine around the mug, or just the handle, and tie it into a tight knot.

Step 3: Print and add the teacher plant gift tags

Print out the thanks for helping me grow” gift tags, cut out the desired size, and punch a hole into the top of it. Thread one end of the twine into the gift tag and tie another knot to secure. Finish by tying a nice bow. These tags would also be great for putting together a DIY indoor herb garden and gifting this to your favorite teacher as an alternative.
