A Living Gift

The Best gifts for gardeners, are some of the cutest and most practical gifts for all those green thumbs out there

Let’s face it: some people are just better with plants than others. Most of us struggle with keeping a small cactus alive, but green thumbs don’t just keep plants alive, they make them thrive — both indoors and out.

So if you’re looking for the perfect gift for that friend that loves plants and loves to garden, try going green this season and let your love grow.

* Okay, so what better gift is there really for a plant lover than an actual, plant? Most ornamental plant comes with simple care instructions. For herb lovers its Rosemary and Thyme on your pantry top under an LED light panel. * Seeds, seeds and more seeds:

What’s a gardener without her seeds? Whatever you and your green thumbs love, stock up on those for planting.

* Every good plant parent needs a watering can, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be some ugly, plastic, clunky thing.

* Working in the garden can be hard work, which is why you need to have a comfortable, durable pair of gloves — the soft leather gloves are what you need. These beauties protect your hands from blisters, scrapes, and thorns, while also not hindering your movement.

* Every good gardener needs a good set of tools a high-quality set with three specialty utensils for raking, digging and planting is that perfect choice. The tools are sturdy and practical, but also feature a nice wooden handle.

* Not everyone with a green thumb is lucky enough to live somewhere with a big backyard, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still enjoy a little garden of their own. This terrarium planter is the perfect solution for anyone living in an apartment that still wants the loveliness of greenery. Available in plant shops, these terrariums will allow you to make the perfect modern garden for your succulents.

* If you have a green thumb, it seems that you can grow plants anywhere — even in empty wine bottles. This simple wine bottle hydroponic kit will help anyone turn an empty bottle into a fun herb garden for a kitchen window sill. The kit comes with three hydroponic ‘smart soil’ capsules, as well as seeds for sweet basil, dill and lemon basil. All you have to do is fill up your wine bottle with water, plant the seeds, and watch your garden come to life.

*Potting plants is messy business. This fun apron is the perfect way to keep clean while getting elbow deep in dirt. And when planting season is over, we wouldn’t blame you if you wore it in the kitchen, too!
