If you have a horticulturist or green thumb on your gift-giving list, there is nothing like giving them the gift of nature to take pleasure in every day of their lives. But what if you think they already have everything they need in the way of plants and flowers? Or, what if you have no idea where to start when it comes to picking out flowers and plants? No worries, there are ways to give the gift of nature and make them the happiest gardeners in the world.
First, you need to really pay attention to what kinds of flowers and plants they have, take time to become aware of what they talk about the most, take a walk through their garden, and do some research on what best accompany their flowers and plants currently in their homes and gardens. A lot of avid gardeners are still in need of extra flowers and plants, and no matter how many they already have are eager to take in new adoptees to tend to.
Another great idea is if the person has a greenhouse at their home, there are always trimmings and little extras that you can purchase to accent their greenhouses and help them in their gardening adventures. If you are really unsure of where to start, and even have no idea of distinguishing a plant from a blooming flower, getting them a gift certificate is always a fine way to go. That way they will be able to get whatever they need and be grateful for the gesture.
If there is a local greenhouse or gardening store that they often visit and get their supplies from, getting them a gift certificate there would be much appreciated. Or, getting them a gift certificate to an online store is another great idea. There are a lot of options and variety of plants and flowers online that you may not find locally.
Books are another great idea for the avid gardener and flower lover, books on plants and flowers that can be grown in their type of weather are always useful, as well as books on exotic plants or flowers in different regions of the world are sure to spark the interest of a green thumb. Whatever you choose, giving the gift of nature throughout plants and flowers is a great way to give a thoughtful gift that will surely brighten their day.
