9 Last Minute Garden Gifts

Orchids by donsutherland1


It is really last minute to talk about buying last minute presents- especially if you are planning on ordering them on line. But, there is always a way of creating a card in short order telling the recipient that your gift is coming. Better late than never, especially if that gift shows you really thought about the perfect gift for that perfect person. Take a photo of yourself holding some Christmas decoration, print it out with a line or two that says something to the order of: ” Belated gift will be coming. Be on the Lookout for something VERY special.”   You don’t have to tell them that you had thought of getting the gift at the last minute; just mumble that there must have been some shipping snafu. You can always add the line that you wanted to spread out the joy of receiving Christmas gifts for a longer period than just one day of giving. Put your thoughtful card under the tree or in a stocking for the recipient to get on Christmas morning and be the hero.

Nine suggestions for Last Minute gifts:

1. Order a plant to be shipped. For example, who doesn’t love an orchid? Waldor Orchids might still be offering a sale price- call and ask.

2. Mom may love English gardens (who doesn’t?) and love to own an English tool to create her own English garden. Check out some English tools made in England, shipped from California (see here).

3. How about an ergonomic (Intended to provide optimum comfort and to avoid stress or injury) garden tool, perhaps for someone handicapped who would love to garden? (see here)

4. Or get a tool especially designed for some woman in your life. (see here)

5. Grandmom or Granddad might like gardening but their arthritis might not make most commonly sold tools user friendly.  For gardeners with arthritis – see here.

6. How about getting a year’s subscription to an excellent gardening magazine? That way you REALLY won’t seem to have forgotten a gift. see here or here

7. Perhaps you have a gardener who likes to read so you want some special book on gardening. Check out this. Or perhaps you want a book from England- a gardener’s paradise. Maybe the person is into Organic gardening.  (see here)

8. Maybe you have a friend who likes mysteries AND gardening themes. Consider this.

9. How about getting some statues or some other object for someone’s garden? For bargain prices look at this website. (see here)  If money is no object and you can afford pricier pieces of sculpture go here. (ThisGardenLady would certainly like to get to know you 🙂
