Looking for green gift ideas? How about an edible bouquet of garden greens?
An arrangement of Swiss chard, fennel, and baby carrots with green tops makes a lovely gift for a dinner party hostess who appreciates fresh, homegrown food. Wash the vegetables, trim stems as desired, and place in a glass vase filled with water. Or if the hostess is a foodie who loves Italian-inspired recipes, present her with a pesto bouquet. Place leafy cuttings of Red Rubin basil, sweet basil, and lemon basil in a small vase filled with water. And finally, if the hostess is particularly health-conscious, consider giving her a mixed bouquet of fresh kale (green curled, winter red, and blue curled) wrapped in brown wax paper and tied with jute string.
A potted rose is a gift that keeps on giving
Plant a white KnockOut rose in a white ceramic pot and present it as a wedding gift. Add some slow-release fertilizer to the potting mix (if it doesn’t already contain fertilizer). Wrap a length of white ribbon around the pot and tie the ends into a bow. Attach your greeting card to the bow. A white rose as a wedding gift celebrates youth and innocence and sends best wishes for a life filled with love and growth.
