Each planter is hand-thrown on the potter’s wheel and includes six glaze options to choose from (including Sexy Mermaid Blue Green and Malibu Barbara Pink) and the choice to have an attached or separate saucer.

Pen/Pencil Gift Set

Whether you want to send your mom or dad with something special to the office, or simply a keepsake to remind them of you, this pen/pencil set can make a simple yet classy gift.  Each set comes with two wood-turned writing utensils in a magnetic case, customizable as two pens, pencils, or one pencil and one pen, with the additional option of an engraving.

The ideal gift for any work-from-home parent, this cleverly designed mobile desk can transform to make any surface the perfect workstation!

turned Wood razor
