Surprise a Friend with a Seeds Subscription Gift

Imagine gifting your friend not just a present but a promise of growth, life, and beauty that keeps on giving.

It’s time to think beyond the usual chocolates or flowers and consider something truly unique – a seeds subscription. In a world where subscription boxes are all the rage, why not surprise your green-thumbed buddy with a subscription that nurtures their love for gardening?

Whether your friend is an experienced gardener or just beginning their journey into the world of plants, a seeds subscription is a surefire way to brighten their day and watch their garden flourish with each passing season. Continue reading to discover why gifting a seeds subscription is the ultimate gesture of growth and friendship.

What are Subscription Gift Boxes?

Subscription gift boxes are a type of service where customers sign up to receive curated packages of products regularly, typically on a monthly basis. These boxes can contain a variety of items, and the contents are often tailored to a specific theme or niche, such as beauty products, snacks, books, fashion accessories, or hobbies.

While the anticipation of an unexpected package in your mailbox can be exhilarating, traditional subscription boxes often come with a drawback—they tend to include a hodgepodge of items you don’t want or need and are likely to end up in the back of your cupboard, or worse, in landfill. 

The environmental impact of these conventional subscription gifts is a concern that is frequently overlooked. However, the good news is that you don’t have to forgo the pleasure of receiving surprises in your mailbox; you simply need to seek out more sustainable alternatives.

Sow ‘n Sow Gift of Seeds Subscription

Unlike other subscription gifts containing heavily packaged plastic products, a Sow ‘n Sow Gift of Seeds subscription is plastic free and biodegradable.

Every month for one year the recipient will receive one Gift of Seeds – a cleverly designed greeting card with a packet of seeds to form a gift that grows.  Each pack is beautifully illustrated by Melbourne artist Daniella Germain and includes a packet of seeds suitable for Australia’s seasons and sowing times, a tearaway biodegradable plant label, sowing instructions, and an envelope for mailing or gifting purposes.

Over a year the recipient will receive a combination of easy to grow flowers, herbs and vegetables. All seeds are non-hybrid, open pollinated, non GMO varieties sourced from reputable suppliers both within Australia and abroad, and can be grown in the garden or in pots on a balcony or windowsill.

What’s the Benefit of a Seeds Subscription Gift?

The results of growing flowers not only gives the recipient a bunch of blooms to enjoy but also gives back to the planet.  

Flowers play a vital role in cleaning up parts of our world. They absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, provide nectar and habitats for bees and insects, and some varieties help to cleanse the soil and water of contaminants.

For example, studies have discovered that sunflowers are able to absorb radioactive materials and other pollutants from the soil without much harm to the plant. Gardening also has many therapeutic benefits. It can help to alleviate the symptoms of conditions such as depression and anxiety as well as improve physical health and mobility.

Whether you want to surprise a loved one or give back to yourself, subscribing to a planet-friendly Sow ‘n Sow Gift of Seeds Subscription is a gift that will keep giving.

Embedded and inspired by nature, Sow ’n Sow believe in purposeful gifting that doesn’t cost the planet.

From a small seed of an idea, Sow ’n Sow was dreamt up by founder Michelle Brady combining her love of gardening and flair for design in 2010.
