6. Pamper Kit
All the digging, planting and weeding involved in gardening can take its toll. It causes dry, dirty and flaky skin, and often leaves us feeling weary and achy.
Therefore, gardeners need to make an extra effort when it comes to restoring moisture into their skin, as well as relaxing any strained muscles.
A pamper kit is the ultimate gift for weary gardeners. Look for gardener's gift sets that contain products such as muscle soak, soap, hand cream and a nail brush, all expertly made with gardeners needs in mind.
What could be better than the gift of clean, moisturised skin?
Just because gardeners enjoy spending their time planting and watering, this doesn’t mean they won’t appreciate a beautiful bunch of (already grown) flowers!
With a bunch of flowers, gardeners can bring the beauty of their garden into their homes, without having to do the hard work themselves. Opt for bright, colourful and plentiful bouquets to really make their day.
Who doesn’t love receiving flowers after all?
