I realize we just hit the winter season, but I’m already thinking ahead to spring. I love spring because everything is new again. Plus I can start planting that early spring garden! My favorite thing to grow, however, are herbs because generally they are easier to grow and the deer, racoons, and squirrels are generally not fans of nibbling on most herbs.
With the spring season almost back to back with Valentine’s Day, I think a gardening theme makes for some terrific, non-romantic Valentine’s Day gifts for someone you care about. I love this idea from Design Sponge
for packing seeds and bulbs into a clay pot and tying it with a ribbon and a handmade tag for gifting.
Pair all of these things with some Handmade Exfoliating Gardener’s Soap
and perhaps some gardening gloves or a trowel and you have the perfect gift for anyone who loves to grow things.
If you want to “romance” this gift up a bit for Valentine’s Day, you can add a “heart” theme and gift your collection with a heart shaped gift tag or heart shaped garden markers like the ones from Sierra Metal Design
