Customized Pencil with Seeds / Great Gift Idea for Special Occassion

      We all give gifts for some special occasion like kids Birthday. 
Recently we gave presents for our kid's birthday. Since we wanted it to be Eco friendly and also personalized, we choose a pencil which also has seeds. It is also customized with my kid's birthday message printed on it. 

It is also made of paper rolls instead of wood which is cut from trees. It has seeds at the bottom of the pencil instead of the typical eraser. Kids can plant the seeds after using the pencil. The seeds are typically tomato, brinjal chilli etc., Even you can specify what seeds you want.

If you are interested in gifting such pencils message to my whatsapp account : 9940789954 or mail me at: kurinjikathambam@gmail.com
