Gift ideas for the ‘hard to shop for’
What do you get for those that seem to have everything?
Look no further than the garden if you are stuck for ideas.
Not only can you find the solution there for the more mature but also for kids who love seeing the results of growing for themselves.
Teaching a child how to grow edible and ornamental plants gives them a lifelong gift. They love to see the results and enjoy getting their hands dirty. Provide them with a kids tool kit, some seeds like wildflower, radishes or microgreens that they can plant up. Or a small pot and some yummy strawberries to plant in it. Swan plants and venus fly traps are always a hit too.
For the adults consider a stunning standard fuchsia or rose. Perhaps that weeping maple that she has had her eye on for months or flowering hydrangeas, roses or Christmas lilies. The best thing about these is that they will flower for you at Christmas time, year after year— the gift that keeps on giving! Stunning flowering orchids, poinsettias or anthirriums are great for those with no garden.
Water features, birdbaths, garden art and sculptures, pots, planters and hanging baskets are also great ideas. These can be taken from one garden to the next should you be shifting in the near future!
Dads love good tools and Wolf-Garten tools are the perfect solution. They are top quality with a lifetime guarantee. Rakes, weeders, brooms and other handy tools fit into the one handle, thus providing you with an ongoing supply of ideas for future Christmas and birthday pressies.
Or how about a Ziglar and Brown barbecue and some waterproof shoes.
Even if that special someone isn’t a gardener they will be rapt with a Morris and James pot, some wall art, body lotions, jewellery or fashionware wraps.
So if you are stuck for ideas this Christmas come on in. We have a huge range to suit those from aged from 2 to 102.
Parking is at the door and we gift wrap for free and you can take some time to relax at Bloom Cafe´. Merry Christmas!
