Whimsical Garden Gifts are a “Must Have” in my household.
All of my friends and family are gardeners, so I know that they will love my choices of gifts for them. Even my mother who gave up gardening in the ground now gardens on a balcony, so she’s still busy getting her hands dirty. Being Swiss, this is probably a closer reminder for her to her Native land as well.
Whimsy is probably the best way to describe her upper 4th-floor balcony. We help her fill it with lovely little things that will keep her 86-year-old hands and mind enjoying her space.
Garden Flags can be used on a Balcony too!
This wrought iron like flag stand is the perfect size for one wall along the side of her balcony. With seasonal flags to bring joy and remind her that spring or summer or fall is coming. When she doesn’t want to get her hands dirty, this is something she will definitely do. There are so many Flag holders and Flags that you could give a gift several times a year and still have another flag to put out. My Evergreen has so many beautiful flags for all occasions and for your patriotic self too! State flags and the American Flag are some of the best sellers! You don’t have to change them if you don’t want to! If you move then you might want a new flag, otherwise, they will last all year long. My Evergreen only has about 200 plus choices in flags and flag holders. So you know the ones I have shown you are just the tip of the iceberg (seeing as how it’s winter, I’ll use that)! Do check out all the possibilities. Flags are quite inexpensive and they are lovely in their designs.
Keeping your feet clean is fun with these coir mats.
The other things that bother her, are getting dirt into the apartment. She’s 86 and isn’t able to clean as easily as she used to, so cleanliness is another hurdle for her……no problem! Wiping your feet on these guys will make you smile and keep the dirt where the dirt belongs, outdoors!
Check out this gorgeous carpet for in front of the doorway! I love it and think it’s just the cat’s meow!
I know she happens to love owls, so this will be right up her alley, so to speak. Don’t you think this is a great idea for all gardeners? Personally, I will be putting this on my wish list. This is so cute and every gardener I know would want one for sure.
I love MY Evergreen! There are just so many fun and useful products for the home gardener and anyone who just loves to have a touch of whimsy in their home space. Balconies, Patios, and backyards are wonderful places to add just a little touch of fun. If you have children or grandchildren they will enjoy the little touches that say they are at Grandmas and Grandpas house. I know that my Grandchildren love those little things, from the fairy houses to the touches of fairies floating around the yard, they are always excited to see what I have added to the mix. So when my birthday rolls around and I know that they are getting me something new for my garden space….I will be as giddy as a young girl and ask for help to seek out the perfect spot for their latest gift. The next time they visit, that will be the first place they will go. They love seeing their gifts in my yard and how much I enjoy sharing them with the family.
Sports Fanatics can get in on the fun too! Whatever your sport there is some Garden Whimsey for you too.
As the children grow, you can change up your garden or patio space to reflect your favorite sports teams! There are wonderful items that will make your love for a certain team undeniable. It really is good fun, and helps to keep friendly rivalries going.
My bet is that the Granddads, Dads, and Kids will all have a say in whose banners are floating around the Grand’s(Grandmas and Grandpas) Garden and Patio. Who knows what kind of rivalry will be happening there? I know that it will be the cause of a lot of laughter and maybe even some bets on the outcome of the game. I love the personalized aspect of my team being cheered on from my garden. It’s all in good fun and meant to bring joy and some happiness to families. Rest assured, in my family, there is never a dull moment when it comes to decorating the space I love the best. My garden is the place where more family and friends get together than anywhere else. Everyone enjoys the garden and I mean to keep it that way.
Check out My Evergreen for yourself and I bet you will find that unusual garden gift that makes the garden complete. If you click on any of the banners, you will find all kinds of fun.
I’d love to hear about your favorites and don’t be shy…..just drop me a note and let me know….
