Gift-giving is a satisfying way to show the people in your life that you care about them and dates back to the dawn of time when gifts were made of bark and wood! Today, we ring in birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries and a whole lot of memorable occasions by exchanging gifts.
A message is conveyed in your choice of gift and let's face it, it's increasingly more difficult to find gifts for folk who already have so much. In these days of sustainable choices the gift that keeps on giving is a far better choice than those that have a limited life-span, are of poor quality or bring no enhancement to the giftee's life.
Plants make the best gifts or at the very least, the gift of something that makes the growing of a garden or plant achievable! Too many of us have been deeply intimidated by the prospect of plant care when the reality is often as simple as a calendar reminder on our phones and a splash of water once a week.
What plants give us in return is priceless: tranquility and ambience to our homes, a calming reminder to slow down, and an appreciation for the small things.
🎁 Hot Gift Tip: Need something quick, carbon-neutral, easy, and impactful? Give the gift of a tree planted in the great outdoors. Planting a tree in someone's name is a heart-felt and everlasting way to show your appreciation. Make them smile with delight knowing they're helping to create a healthier planet!
Your can do this by purchasing a tree via websites such as Carbon Neutral , Carbon Positive Australia, Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife or you can pot up a tree and gift it to your special person.
