My mom is an avid gardener, as is my dad. Growing up we had a huge garden and grew most of our own food. My mom canned like crazy in the fall to preserve all of our hard work for winter enjoyment. My parents don’t grow as many edibles now and they focus their time cultivating beautiful flower gardens. So what do you buy for an avid gardener who has everything? A local garden gift membership of course.
For Mother’s & Father’s day I bought my parents a gift membership to Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens. They both love spending the morning there walking around the garden. Now they can go as often as they want (and since they can take guests I can go along as well). I just got the membership since my dad was out of the country till now (I wanted to make sure they get the most out of their membership).
I think these kinds of gifts are perfect. You give someone an experience instead of something tangible.
I will surely be buying more gifts like these in the future.
So anyone else like giving gifts of zoo, garden or museum memberships?Filed under Miscellaneous | Comments (3)
