A Garden Gift Idea – Non Traditional Christmas
Instead of the traditional Christmas stocking, use gumboots, straw baskets or a watering can. Wrap secateurs, gardening gloves, seed packets and a trowel in a tea towel reflecting a gardening motif, or in a box covered with a garden theme gift-wrap paper.
A rain gauge to accurately measure the amount of rain is a useful present, as is a hedgehog foot scraper for muddy shoes, or a basket filled with sunscreen, organic soap, hand lotion and gardening gloves.
For the bird enthusiast, nesting boxes or sisal nesting logs that can be attached high up in a tree where birds will be safe and sheltered from rain, birdbaths and feeding tables would be welcome.
