If you're looking for ways to make your gardening gifts really unique, try wrapping them in love and show your loved one you really care. You can gift wrap gardening gifts the traditional way, or you can get just a little more creative with your gift wrapping. Here are some ideas to give your gift-wrap a personal touch.
Garden Statues and Other Large Gardening Gift Items
For large gardening gifts such as full-size garden statues, birdbaths, arbors, a garden trellis, garden fountains, or patio furniture, use creative party decorations instead of gift wrap. You can tie big bows and balloons along with a card attached to decorate the gift.
Or, decorate the garden statue or fountain in plant or vegetable seed packs. To do this, use a hole-puncher to punch small holes in the very corner of each seed pack. Be sure not to puncture the pack where the seeds can spill. Then, thread ribbon through each of the holes and tie them around the statue, birdbath, or patio furniture with excess curly ribbon hanging for extra decoration.
Gift Wrap for Bird Houses or Bird Feeders
Bird houses and bird feeders are smaller items so you can easily place them in a gardening gift basket along with other gardening items such as bird seeds, vegetable or flower seed packs, unique garden tools, and other small garden decoration items. Fill the empty spaces in the basket with colorful cut shreds and fillers. Wrap the basket in a clear or colored shrink dome bag, and finish with a beautiful bow assortment and gift card.
Small Garden Sculptures and Other Lawn Decorations
Gift wrapping small garden sculptures and other lawn decorations is a cinch with themed gift boxes. There are garden-themed gift boxes that give your loved one just a "hint" of what's inside. Fill the box with several of their favorite gardening decor items - a small garden sculpture, a wind chime, a sun catcher, along with some seeds, a small bag of soil, and a decorative planter. It's sure to fill their heart as well!
Other Gift-Wrap Ideas
Gardening gifts can also be complemented by other items that are not particularly for gardening or lawn decoration. These might be a new coffee mug with a special-blend coffee, gourmet chocolate treats, baking mixes, or pampering products for women such as lotions and bath oils. The male gardener might enjoy some new household tools, tickets to a ball game, or some new work shoes. Items such as these make great "extras" along with gardening gifts during the holidays or for any occasion.
You can use decorative garden-themed gift bags instead of wrapping paper for a quick, easy gift-wrap alternative. There are also tie-up gift bags that are colored or decorated for convenience. Wood crate baskets are also popular for gardening gifts. These are small, decorative crates made of wood that are great for giving jars of jams or preserves, small potted plants or flowers, and other small gardening items.
Use these gardening gift wrapping techniques to make a great first impression when you present gifts to your friends and loved ones!
