Give a garden gift! There are lots of different sorts of garden gifts - you can treat your loved one to a personalised garden gift, a personalised garden calendar, hand care products to help care for those green fingers & hard-working hands, and gifts to give people simple enjoyment in the garden. If your loved one loves their garden and likes or loves animals and wildlife, one option could be to give them a garden gift which encourages birds, bees, butterflies, hedgehogs and the like to their garden so that they can enjoy watching them.
I often send my Auntie Joan a house plant, rather than flowers. She is living in a care home, and she loves bright colours as she has trouble with her sight. Today I've sent her a house plant from Bunches - they have several to choose from, and I think these make lovely gifts. Auntie Joan used to love her garden and so it's nice to send her something colourful and floral. Order online and delivery is free! From £18.99. Click here to go to Bunches.

Send a Tree, not flowersYou think of giving someone a tree - a great gift, it benefits people and animals alike.
