With this being known, you can find elephant planters for succulents that are incredibly adorable!
These ones come in either mint green, red, white (semi-matte), and charcoal black, but we suggest going with the white (semi-matte) to somewhat adhere to the ivory theme of the gift.
They are handmade and perfect for either the home or office!
Succulents are also rather hardy, making it so they thrive even if you don’t water them as often as you should.
When you give this to her, you can also tell her that part of the reason is that elephants never forget, just as you’ll never forget how much she means to you!
