Father’s Day is observed in Australia and NZ on the first Sunday of September. It is a day for people to show their appreciation for fathers and father figures. Father figures may include stepfathers, fathers-in-law, guardians (eg. foster parents), and family friends.
Acts of appreciation are done in different ways and may include outings, visits and special family meals (all challenging during these pandemic/covid times!) and gifts.
Why not consider gifts outside of the usual traditional socks, undies and t-shirts!
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.
Cast your mind back to when as a child you might have hand made a Dad or Special Person gift at school? Remember all of those painted pinch-pots, pasta necklaces, cards plastered in paper doilies? Perhaps they still have them lovingly stored in keepsake boxes - how gorgeous to look back on those memories!
Why not consider a grown-up's version of the handmade gift and give a living gift of a potted plant, loving selected and re-homed by you! Try these ideas and you'll be sure to please:
