In the holiday season we can easily figure out gifts for some of our friends and family members. But others are more challenging to shop for. Here is part 1 of the Country Garden Present Problem Solver...our suggestions for interesting, unexpected, but oh-so-appreciated gifts.
For The Person Who Doesn’t Need “More Stuff”
For the Cape Codder who has everything! This Mr. Bird cage holds blocks of birdseed that appeal to a variety of winged wildlife. Easy to fill because you drop the block of seed into the holder, which is either hung or attached to a tree or structure. Watching the birds is calming and entertaining, and since the seeds are consumed, you’re not giving a gift that becomes just another “dust catcher.”
For Your Favorite Aunt or Grandmother
She was the Auntie or Grandmother who was willing to take you shopping and hiking all on the same day. She let you roast marshmallows over candles at her kitchen table, and make a mess with colored markers and glitter on rainy days. No matter her age, she’d love a light and colorful wrap that is perfect for her winter travels to warmer places or for the beach when she’s back on Cape.
For Your Recently Retired Parents
Your parents have recently retired and finally have time to putter in their yard. Get them a great tool that makes pruning easier! Felco pruners last for years…they are the professional gardener’s pruner of choice. The perfect gift for anyone who likes “the right tool for the job.”
For Your “Retro-Loving” Sister
Your sister got married in a barn and stores her nuts and grains in Mason jars. She has an old fashioned blackboard in the kitchen and loves agricultural style. She will be thrilled some vintage-look metal planters for her indoor or outdoor styling. For extra points, decorate the package with an old-time truck and tree cutout.
For The Localvore
She loves to “think globally, act locally.” These beeswax soaps and candles are made right here on Cape Cod. She shops at farmer’s markets and wants to support local businesses instead of shopping at the mall. She’ll love the Little River products.
For The Creative Nature Lover
She or he likes nature and being creative. Give them a terrarium jar so they can have a green experience even in the winter! You can either pick out plants and other needed supplies, or tuck a Country Garden gift card in the jar so that they can have the fun of picking these out themselves. A perfect gift for anyone from ages of 9 to 90.
For Your Dog and Football Obsessed Brother-in-Law
Your brother-in-law loves his dog and the Patriots, in that order. Make him smile every game day with some team gear just for Fido. Patriot shirts for dogs of all ages. (Don’t even think about getting a cat into these outfits…)
For The Organic Grower
They want to grow organically. No matter what plant they’re propagating, they will love this all-purpose, organic fertilizer from Coast of Maine.
For Your Weather Obsessed Friend or Family Member
You know the type…they have the weather channel on as background and they check the forecast frequently. When you arrive for dinner the first fifteen minutes is spent talking about how hot, cold or rainy it’s been. Don’t fight it…give them an attractive outdoor thermometer so they can monitor the temperatures moment to moment.
For The Woman Who Just LOVES Christmas
She absolutely loves the Christmas season. She likes to set the table with special linens and put holiday throw pillows on the couch. She even places cinnamon or pine-scent potpourri in the bathrooms. So you know that she’ll love and treasure these sweet Christmas dishes.
