The gifting season is upon on, and that means that it’s time for you to start thinking cleverly about what you want to get for the important people in your life. But, being a little more specific, what if you’re looking to buy something for those more, earthy, people? The ones that, for a lack of a better term, might have personalities more toward the hippie persuasion?
For those folks, you can look at gardening tools, bonsai plants, ecosystem kits, seeds for next season, or even something creative like a gift certificate for your time when the next growing seasons comes around. Consider each of the possibilities.
Tools To Grow With
You can’t do much with the earth if you don’t have the right tools to work with. This is going to include spades, buckets, digging tools, gloves, and all of those other miscellaneous things that get put away for the winter, and come out the next spring all dusty and stuff, but ready to go. Buying gardening tools for you earthy friends is a great way to show that you care about them and how they care about the environment!
For a more controlled gift, consider researching bonsai plants and finding the right ones to buy for your loved ones. They do take a significant amount of work and attention, so this is definitely not something that you want to get for someone who tends to kill goldfish. But, they really can be a centerpiece of conversation if done correctly, and your friends will love them for the thought that exists inside the idea of a stylistically controlled tree as well.
If you want to get something really cool for an earth-loving friend, find an ecosystem kit that fits your budget. There are some really amazing ones that have come out for sale in the last few years, and though they might be a little bit more on the pricey side, they are definitely worth it as an expression of love.
Seeds For Next Season
On the less expensive side of the spectrum, you can get your green friends seeds for next planting season! Depending on where you live and where they live, you can decide for yourself what kinds of fruits, veggies, or other plant life would be interesting to bring into the world in the new year.
A Gift Certificate For Your Time
And for those of you with no money at all, but still want to give gifts to your environmentalist friends, give them a gift certificate for your time! Tell them you’ll spend so many hours with them the next planting season, or will help them with doing things like weeding or working on their lawns.
