Looking for Really Unique Christmas Gifts?
You probably never thought about doing your Christmas shopping at a nursery and gardening supply center. Who wants a bag of manure under the tree or a bottle of weed killer in their stocking? But the truth is, if you’re buying for somebody who’s crazy about working in and beautifying their yard and landscape, visiting a fully stocked garden center might be a really cool idea.
Now, we’re not suggesting you do all of your Christmas shopping at a landscape-supply center (like ours!), but think about it: how many Christmas gifts are immediately useful and needed and bring great satisfaction? If you have a friend or loved one with a green thumb, items they can use in their garden could be among this year’s most welcomed presents.
What kind of Christmas gifts can you buy at a nursery?
Wind chimes: Nothing is more relaxing than the peaceful sound of wind chimes. And nothing is more surprising to find in a wrapped package under the Christmas tree.
Potting soil: Serious gardeners can never have enough potting soil. This is a gift the gardener in your life will truly appreciate and use.
Trees: Imagine the look on your recipient’s face when a ready-to-plant mango, peach or avocado tree shows up outside on Christmas morning.
Bird baths: Bird baths come in many unique styles and sizes, and anybody who’s into beautifying the backyard would love to have one.
Fire pits: Backyard entertaining is instantly enhanced with a beautiful stone fire pit. This is the kind of item most people wouldn’t buy for themselves but sure would enjoy using.
Stones: Decorative stones enhance the appearance of any landscape. We’ll deliver stones of any size in time for Christmas.
Gardening tools: The tools your gardener uses are critical to doing a great job. Surprise him or her with well-made items from our selection of rakes, spades, shovels, trimmers, pruners, shears and more.
Stone furniture: Outdoor living is never better than when you have a nice array of rustic stone tables and benches to enjoy. We’ll set up your selections for you.
Pottery: Fine pottery is an excellent landscape amenity, and your gift recipient will be amazed when you unveil a few pieces from the stunning Michael Carr Designs line.
Gravel: If your special someone has been talking about laying down some gravel on the driveway or using it as accents throughout the landscape, buy some gravel in bulk and make a big splash on Christmas morning.
Admittedly these are somewhat unorthodox Christmas gifts, but many people these days prefer gifts they can start putting to good use right away as opposed to that second coffee pot, third wallet or eighth necktie. If you have friends or family members for whom gardening is a serious avocation, do something a little different this Christmas and buy them gifts they can really get something out of.
