DIY Herb Garden Gift Sets
If you really want to give a unique gift, you can make your own herb garden gift sets, perfectly personalized for the receiver. All you need are a few elements to guarantee a successful herb garden.
This is the most essential part of your gift, as the seeds will determine what herbs will be grown with the kit. Really personalize this for your loved one, select herbs they enjoy in their cooking or if they like to drink tea, get them herbs like peppermint and chamomile. If you’re not sure what herbs are best, there are plenty of seed sets to choose from.
Pots or Containers
You’ll need to give something to grow those seeds in. If the person you’re shopping for likes to garden in their yard or a garden bed, you may just want to give them a seed starter to establishing seedlings in before transferring to a garden.
Another option is to buy a set of small pots or a window box to grow the herbs in a kitchen windowsill or on a patio. There’s plenty of options for all types of styles and sizes. If you buy a large enough container (like the personalize window box featured above), it can work as your “gift box” for this present.
Soil or Growing Medium
They’ll need something to grow the seeds in and regular garden dirt won’t do. I would recommend either getting a small bag of potting mix or compact potting soil wafers, which are small disks that expand to create a nutrient-rich soil for your herbs. The soil wafers are usually a better size for gift boxes or for herb gardens gift sets that need to be mailed.
This is an optional item, but a cute way to add some personality to your gift. This is especially good for gardeners who will be planting the herbs in their yard. Plant markers are a great way to keep track of seedlings in pots or garden beds. You can even make custom plant markers very inexpensively. If you’re not a crafty person, there’s plenty of plant markers to buy on Etsy.
