I Need a Gift Suggestion for…?

I would like recommendations for my favorite garden center employee.She’s great! She answer every question patiently and frankly,. I appreciate what she brings to the workplace. Of course, she has access to all types of plants and garden things so, I was wondering if you all would suggest something, please.
Thanks!
I meant to state she answers…thanks.

As a former garden center employee, I loved pretty scarves with flowers, tee shirts with garden themes and slogans, garden books, garden themed stationery, garden theme jewelry, unusual garden ornaments from places where I could never afford to shop. Garden theme aprons, a really good tool, an unusual flower pot. Lots of journals and interesting books about gardeners and gardening out there that would be good gifts.

So the gift just gets wrapped and who knows who will pick it lol he works at a tire company and its mostly men except for 2 women. Was trying to think of something to get other than a gift card. Any ideas????? :) thanks

Robert asks…

Gift for mom!?

I am making a gift basket for my mom. It has a gardening theme, and I was wondering what kind of unique things I could put in it. Like gloves, seeds, etc. Give lots of ideas plz!! Thank you so much!

GardenersCardiff answers:

I would get her some hand tools to go with the gloves and seeds. Also put some lotion for her hands and some sunscreen, as well as a hat. You may want to check at your local nursery and pick her up a gift certificate to get her started. Books and magazines are also a very good idea, as well as some pads for her knees — gardening can be pretty tough on the knees/body. Don’t forget the water bottle for her and a watering can for the plants.
