Valentine’s Day is less than a month away! What are you going to get your sweetie pie/boo? Now is a good time to decide what to get. If this holiday sneaks up on you every year, this one’s for you! (you’re welcome) 🙂
Valentine’s Day Quiz
-What is your significant other’s favorite color?
-Do they like to grow plants both indoors both and out?
-Are they missing something they need?
-Did something they love break?
If you don’t know the answers, do some detective work! Then look through my top 5 best Valentine’s Day Gifts for gardeners:
#1 Garden Gear
Did you catch him admiring an electric lawnmower? Has she been commenting on how her pruning shears just don’t seem to “cut” it anymore? Gardening gear is a fantastic gift! Other ideas include Muckboots, gloves, hats, and other essential items. I love the trowels that never break from Diggit garden tools.
#2 Gift Certificate to Favorite Local Nursery
Does she claim her car “stopped” at the garden center again? The perfect choice is obviously a gift certificate! Who doesn’t love a shopping spree to support their gardening habit? Print out a free copy of the Botanical Interests 2017 Coloring book to go with it!
#3 Potted Plant or Bouquet
Stop by a local nursery and see what’s available. Research shows houseplants lower stress levels! Instead of a rose bouquet, wrap a 2 gallon rose with a bow! Or pick up a fragrant rose bush. My favorites hybrid teas are ‘Mister Lincoln’ (red,) ‘Secret’ (pinkish white), ‘Bolero’ (white), ‘Sweet Surrender’ (pink), ‘Angel Face’ (lavender) and ‘Midas Touch,’ (yellow).
Some people hoard shoes or Teddy bears, but most gardeners absolutely adore (and hoard) seed packets! Many online retailers like Renee’s Garden or Johnny’s Seeds run sales at the beginning of the year.
#5 The 5 Love Languages
This amazing book by Dr. Gary Chapman helps people understand love. It even has a fun quiz! The 5 love languages (not in order of importance) are:
-spending quality time
-words of affirmation
-acts of service or devotion
What if all these years, the perfect gift could be exactly what your partner wanted? Buy the 5 Love Languages book to learn more.
Hey-What about the Single People!?
As I write this post, I’ll divulge that I’ve been single for a number of years. It’s not a terrible thing, only thinking so makes it terrible! Take the free Love Languages quizto find out what to get yourself. (lol). At least you know you’ll like it!
