(basil, parsley and mint herb pot)
So, what to do ?
I did not want to buy chocolate coated peanuts or a coffee mug (he has about 10 already I think). I knew something would spring into my head - but it only happened the day before their final day at school.
I decided to plant a big pot of herbs. Sometimes when Mr Dreise has a day off his wife is the fill in teacher for the class. So I made it a joint gift to Mr & Mrs Dreise from Oliver & Lucy.

I did not photograph last years gifts for the teacher - from memory it was a crazy busy year with me working full time and I don't even recall what I gave the teachers. But this is the post from 2010 where I managed some home made gifts for the 4 teachers the kids had see post here
Each year I say I must start my Christmas sewing early but alas again it did not happen - but let's face it, it is hard to sew for a man. But next year they have a female teacher once again so no excuses, next year it will be a handmade sewn gift for Mrs Simpson.
And of course it will be here before we blink.
