Gardening: Perfect gifts for gardeners

Small hand tools, seed packets and garden gloves make great stocking stuffers for gardeners.

If you are like me and still seeking that perfect holiday or hostess gift for someone on your list, why not treat them to a gardening-related gift?

Whether the hard-to-buy-for individual is an experienced gardener or an aspiring one hoping to grow a green thumb, they will eagerly await spring when they receive a gardening gift this holiday season.

There are many options ranging from small items that make perfect stocking stuffers to tools and larger items that gardeners will use for years to come.

What better gardening gift than a live plant?

Traditional holiday plants such as poinsettias, amaryllises, Christmas cacti, and paperwhites are always appropriate and make beautiful live holiday décor. Other flowering plants such as red or white cyclamens make festive gifts, and houseplants and succulents make excellent gifts no matter the holiday or season.

Unique plant gift options include terrariums, air plants, orchids and small indoor aquatic gardens. For those unable or unwilling to commit to plant care, cut flowers mixed with seasonal greens are an option.
