Finding a gift for someone with a green thumb can be a daunting task. At times, you may feel that you don’t know enough about gardening to find a satisfactory gift. Gardening gifts can be a great way to encourage someone to start gardening or a way to encourage those you know who already have an established landscape. Read on for some ideas on gifting to those gardeners in your life, and who knows, maybe you’ll find a gift for yourself as well!
One of the best ideas for the gardener in your life is to get them accessories for their landscape. Many websites and gardening stores carry stylish birdhouses, planters, and bird feeders to complement any garden or home. If you’re feeling crafty, you can even purchase a crate or pot from a thrift store and re-purpose it to make the perfect planter. Most gardeners are always looking to expand their knowledge and their garden, so a book on the subject of gardening is always a smart choice.
If you’re feeling more adventurous or have a knack for gardening yourself, you can purchase a set of bulbs from many retailers. Bulbs are usually planted in late autumn before the first hard frost, and bloom in the spring. Tulips, crocuses, and amaryllis are just a few of the many bulb varieties you can choose from. Some locations even create a gift set for your bulbs so they come in a stylish basket or crate. Many bulbs even return annually, so it’s a gift that can last for years with proper care.
Shopping for a gardener may seem daunting at first, but it’s really an enjoyable task to find the perfect gift that you know will bring joy to the recipient. Whether it’s for a birthday, holiday, or just because, a gardening gift will liven up the landscape of that special someone in your life.
