Give the Gift of Green
Great gift ideas for your green thumbed gardener!
By Melanie Shifflett
For most, gardening is the last thing they think of during winter but we all have the plant-loving friend
who yearns for the feel of dirt between their fingers. Here is some garden-ready gift inspiration for your
green-thumbed buddy to get them excited for Spring and even some ideas to keep them occupied
during the cold months!
This light weight, functional, wire basket is shaped perfectly to fit tools and food items. Also, the wiring
itself leaves room to easily hose off any excess dirt so they don’t bring that inside!
This handy-dandy tool belt allows them to be handy, which is, well, dandy. This customizable belt allows
them to have up to four pockets for anything they may need and the ability to remove pockets for
anything they don’t! It has a netted pocket for their water bottle, a hook and loop flap for their cell
phone and other useful options.
Tis the season for dry and cracked skin but this also may be the only opportunity for our botanist buddy
to give those hands a break. Treat them to a natural, unscented hand lotion to heal their hands in
preparation for next years endeavors.
In addition to protecting hands, we should be helping to cover their arms! Rose Gardening gloves are
flexible, padded and protect against those pesky thorns. The extra long length provides extra coverage
to help them get the job done. Bonus: they offer lots of pretty ones these days!
While the snow is still falling and going outdoors seems to be out of reach, gift the gift of indoor plants.
This seedling starter allows the process to begin in anticipation of proper temperatures outside. They
only need to be watered once a week so they are also a great gift for rookie gardeners.
Silver and gold….silver and gold…and green.
