31 Oct Gardening Gifts
Gifts with a gardening theme are popular at any time of year. Is the recipient an avid gardener or just someone who dreams of a garden? It’s easy to create a personalized gift.
Create a Gardening Gift
There are endless ways to create a garden themed gift. Start with a theme. For example, combine several bird and/or butterfly related items. Start with a butterfly or bird house and packets of seeds to create a bird & butterfly friendly garden. Add a book on butterfly gardening or a gift card to our garden center. Avid gardeners love gift cards. Gift cards allow the more advanced gardener to purchase plants or garden enhancements they may not already enjoy.
Instead of putting your gifts in a paper bag, opt for a decorative pot. Pots come in many shapes and sizes and are perfect for holding gifts for the garden. For example, fill your pot with a bag of soil, a pair of gloves, hand tools and a gardening calendar. The options are endless. Add a touch of tissue paper or cellophane and tie off with a pretty bow. Tie a sprig of lavender or thyme to your bow. Your budget and your imagination determine the size and elegance of your gift.
Think seasonal. Winter gardening gifts can include small pots of herbs for the windowsill. They can be festively decorated with pieces of evergreen or holly clipped from your garden. Nice ceramic pots filled with crocus or hyacinth bulbs are perfect for bringing that early spring feeling into the home. Colanders filled with lettuce plants or other cool weather veggies are also a unique gift anyone would enjoy. Seasonal container gardens are always appreciated. Other reasonably priced gardening gifts include, wind chimes, statues, flags and bird baths.
Wander through our garden center this holiday season. You’re sure to find a unique gift for all the gardeners on your list.
