Have you ever thought of giving seeds as a gift? Probably not, but in fact they make a great gift: they’re unusual, useful, cheap, thoughtful and ideal for gardeners, cooks, kids or even those who have never grown a thing! Here are our some of our tips for giving seeds as a gift here at Seeds By Post (http://www.seedsbypost.co.uk/).
When we give gifts, we want the recipient to know we’ve given some thought to the gift, we normally want to give something a little bit unusual rather than the same old book token, and with money tight for most people right now, we don’t want to have to pay the earth yet don’t want to seem cheap. Well given all those demands of gift giving, may we suggest that flower seeds, herb seeds and vegetable seeds are the ideal gift – they tick all the boxes! We even sell seeds for kids which have been designed for the youngest of growers and are great to give to children as gifts.
We think that just about any of our mail order seeds are ideal gifts, just consider whether the recipient is more of a gardener or a cook, a vegetable or a flower grower, an allotment holder or the owner of little more than a window box. Then take a browse round our huge range of cheap seeds to see what takes your fancy. How about lavender seeds for the fragrance lover, coriander seeds for the budding cook, ‘lucky’ clover seeds for someone starting their new job, or cat grass seeds for a pet owner?
They are a great present for sending through the post given their handy postage size, but there are also lots of imaginative ways you can gift-wrap your seeds to make them a lovely present to give and unwrap in person. You can put them in a glass jar tied with ribbon or string and adorned with a note detailing the seeds and care information, or try filling a little peat pot with the seeds and decorate with leaves or dried flowers. However you present them, we’re sure the recipient will love the gift of growing! Get inspired to give at http://www.seedsbypost.co.uk/.
