Gardening Gifts for All Occasions
Throughout the year are holidays and special occasions for which we need gifts. There’s nothing better than receiving a gift relating to one’s heat. If your loved one’s passion is gardening, then show your thoughtfulness by giving a gift that will be really appreciated.
There are so many great gardening gifts that the only constraint is your own budget.
If your budget is little, go for things like gloves, kneepads or even a shady hat. A pretty pot (or a watering pot) filled with a small bag of potting mix, a packet of bulbs, some gloves and a small trowel or other tool will be received with pleasure by many gardeners. There are several hand tools at hardware shops that are reasonably priced.
If you feel that is too ordinary, how about a subscription to a gardening magazine? A little bit costlier possibly, but it will give twelve full months of delight. A book on gardening is another idea, but be sure your recipient doesn’t already have the one you choose. Books are much heavily discounted at Christmas time, so you may get a bargain.
On the other hand, a pot that contains a flowering plant is normally a welcomed gift. Make sure to select a plant that is suited to your climate. Sometimes plants are sent from tropical to temperate zones and kept in artificial conditions in the store. These plants won’t do well once taken from their environment. Bush roses are hardy and beautiful and produce in most climates. Tulips do best in the cooler climate.
If your budget is heavy, a costlier tool may be appropriate. A pull-trolley is easier to use than a wheelbarrow and, like some electric tools, is still not terribly expensive. Small electric tools such as whipper-snippers may be retail for as little as $20.00. Or if your friend has a hose but not a hose reel, then that wishful a more useful gift that he would really appreciate.
Automatic lawn mowers, electric cultivators, hedge trimmers and brush cutters are in the costlier price range and you’re the only one who may select whether that is an appropriate gift. However, when the recipient realizes you’ve given a gift that complements his passion, expensive or not, it will surely become the best gift
your friend has ever received.
