Winter is a tough time for someone who loves being outside in the garden – it gets dark and cold so early, it doesn’t go hand in hand with outdoor work. For those particularly green-fingered friends, they’re bound to face the elements and grow their garden. If you know a friend who loves their garden this much, there are so many goodies you can get them. Carry on reading and your present ideas should start to blossom.
Even though summer seems like a lifetime away, there will come a time where we want to spend time outside again. Long summer evenings spent lingering in the garden over glasses of Pimm’s and rosé. You can get your friend lanterns to have in their garden so you the two of you can enjoy the evenings for even longer. Plus outside lights keep a little piece of Christmas magic alive all year around.
Your friend doesn’t have to use solely plants to decorate the garden. There’s pretty much a whole world of ornaments you can choose from. From animals statues to the traditional gnome. Feel free to have a bit of fun with this one, but – of course – you do need to keep your friend’s taste in mind. You could also incorporate a practical element to these decorations, and your friend can use them to scare off unwanted creatures. Coopers of Stortford offer a great range of these, including cats and falcons.
Gardeners Hand Therapy
After a hard day of work outside, your green-fingered friend will need to look after their hands as carefully as they’ve looked after the garden. With gardeners hand therapy your friend can soothe their skin with a rich, fragrance, cream. When your friend is out in the elements and hard at work, it’s important for them to look after their skin as well as they can.
Of course, your friend will need more than just their handiwork to maintain their garden. They’ll also need the tools to get the job done. Your friend will probably already some tools, but they could be worn-out and in need of replacing. This is where you can treat them to set of new tools. Or you could ask what your friend needs. It may take away the element of surprise, but wouldn’t you rather know they’re actually going to use the gift? You want your present to be used, not just put in the shed.
