Valentine’s Day gifts for gardeners and plant lovers
Gift idea 1: Gift of Seeds
Nearly every sentiment imaginable can be expressed with flowers which makes specific varieties more special to give on Valentine’s Day. While red roses are undoubtedly the most popular flower to give on this day of love, did you know there are many other flower varieties that are deeply symbolic and a perfect alternative to express your feelings? Sunflowers represent loyalty and adoration; dahlias are symbols of devotion, love, beauty and dignity; and everlasting daisies symbolise innocence, purity, friendship and happiness.
While a bouquet is a very traditional Valentine’s Day gift, if you want to truly surprise your partner or friend with a unique gift, why not give them a Gift of Seeds instead so they can grow their own flowers? While a bouquet will wither and die, a Gift of Seeds will keep giving as it grows and blooms.
Gifts of Seeds we recommend: Forget-Me-Not, Everlasting Daisy, Sunflowers, Native Daisies, Dahlia and Sweet Pea.
Gift idea 2: Flower Press
If you really want to treat your valentine, give them a gift they will treasure and continue to use year after year. A flower press is a keepsake that makes a truly special Valentine’s Day gift. Give it with a bunch of flowers and encourage your valentine to preserve them as a lasting memento. With sizes ranging from Mini to Giant, there is a size suitable for even the youngest loved ones in your life.
Gift idea 3: Gift of Seeds Subscription
Remind your loved one how much they mean to you each month of the year with a Gift of Seeds subscription. Each month for six or twelve months the lucky recipient will receive a Gift of Seeds selected for Australian seasons. Each Gift of Seeds features a beautiful botanical illustration, a packet of seeds, and tearaway plant label for marking where seeds have been planted. Depending on the length of subscription you purchase for your valentine, they could receive a variety of flowers, herbs and vegetables to grow in their garden or on their balcony.
