• If your giftee loves gardening or has expressed a desire to learn more about it, consider using this theme.
  • Think about things that a gardener would love to receive or do:
    • Perhaps a gift card to their favourite garden store or nursery. If they don’t have the space for a garden, consider a gift card for a company that delivers responsibly grown, organic food (eg:
    • Activitiesclasses to work on their skills (there are often several events and workshops around gardening available if you do a little online searching), visit some botanical gardenszoos frequently offer some botanical information sessions as well.
    • Gardening supplies like soilplantsflowers, gloves, hoses, etc can be very useful and appreciated gifts.
    • Gardening can be tough on hands, so something simple like hand cream can easily work here.
    • On a budget? Make your giftee a meal with garden fresh ingredients.
  • You can keep the theme simple and just present gifts around gardening or you can incorporate other themes. For instance:
    • Gardening is very earthy and environmentally friendly so it can work well with our Elements  and Going Green themes.
    • Gardening is usually associated with spring and summer so think about using our Seasons theme.
    • Rocks can be an integral part of a garden so consider our Rock, Paper, Scissors theme. Gardening shears could easily work as scissors here.
    • Do you have gifts in all sort of colours? Or would you like to go with a green thumb theme? Try our Colours theme.
  • Feel free to stretch terminology here. The word ‘bedding’ is common in gardening so if you have a bed or sheets to give, they could fit nicely into this theme.
  • Stuck for ideas? Consider donating to a charitable organization that promotes community gardens or using gardening as therapy for those with mental health concerns.
  • Apply pictures of different types of plants/flowers or gardening tools to each gift.
  • Tie a small garden related item into the ribbon around the gift (eg: a flower, small trowel, seeds).
  • If you have some time to order it, using wrapping paper embedded with seeds would be a unique touch. There are a few companies out there that make it and you can actually plant the paper and watch it grow.
  • Take your giftee out into the garden to give the gift or, if you don’t mind getting a bit dirty, plant your gifts in some soil and make your giftee dig them out.
  • Use quotes or phrases that relate to your theme when you present the gifts or in your card. For example:
    • Happy birthday to a guy/gal who’s anything but garden variety.
    • Always take time to stop and smell the roses.
    • I hope this gift sows the seeds for a great birthday!
    • Happy anniversary to someone who always looks at life through rose coloured glasses.
