Gardening Valentine’s Day Gifts
1. Valentine’s Day Rosette Succulents
Flowers, particularly roses, a very traditional Valentine’s Day gift. But gardeners have an appreciation for all plants and if your beloved enjoys succulents, then this is the V-day present for them. These rosette succulents have a similar appearance to the petals of a rose, with the benefit of being a potted plant that will continue growing long after the holiday. To add a romantic touch, this pair of plants comes in two wood-style pot wraps with the lovely messages “Love Grows Here” and “Let Love Grow.”
When you order, you get two live succulents in 2.5″ pots. Care instructions are included for these low maintenance plants.
2. Garden Lovers Chocolate Gift Box
Delicious chocolate is my favorite part of the holiday and a frequent gift exchanged between lovers. Ditch the traditional heart-shaped box and give your favorite gardener these sweets instead. Handmade by Lady Sweet Cakes SC, this gorgeously packaged gift set includes five garden themed chocolates. The shapes are a watering can, a packet of seeds, garden shovel and spade, plus a wide-brimmed hat. These chocolate are made to order in your choice of milk, dark, or white chocolate. This is a sweet gift any gardener will appreciate.
3. La Chatelaine Hand Cream Gift Set
