How Do I Choose Garden Decor For Gardening Gifts?

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Garden decor are the ornaments and decorations that add style and interest to your yard.  It will enhance the look of any home and will also make wonderful gardening gifts for others.  Quite often, it is the first thing that people see when they come to visit.  Gardens are great places to relax and unwind, meditate, or for recuperating from an illness.  Being amidst nature that is created exclusively for aesthetic appeal, can trigger extremely pleasant emotions in any person.

The one thing to remember about gardening gifts:  Die hard enthusiasts of gardening go to great lengths to procure the right kind of look.  No matter what, it is always best to remember that your decor for the garden should enhance the appearance of the area rather than clash with the plants and flowers.  Everyone is different in creating their own visually appealing piece of paradise.  There are many ways to make your own outdoor home come alive.  Choose gardening gifts that fit your style and what overall theme is immensely pleasing to you.  As you can see, it is very personal indeed.

As such, I would not recommend giving large statues to your friends as gardening gifts unless you are SURE that it fits into their garden theme.  Perhaps, gift certificates for statues of their choice would make for better gardening gifts.  Here is a list of some items that are personal to the gardener:  fountains, benches, furniture, stepping stones, large statues, hammocks, patio heaters, outdoor fireplaces, large trellises, shades and umbrellas, weather vanes, lighting.

On the other hand, there are many gardening gifts that you can easily give that shouldn’t ruffle anyone’s feathers.  Here is a partial list:  birdbaths, birdhouses, bird feeders, clocks, thermometers, doormats, wind chimes, garden bells, rain gauges, garden gnomes and gargoyles, garden hose reels and holders, pots and planters, window boxes, rocks, small figures, signs and plaques, sundials, boot brushes.

Imagine fountains that spew water or relaxing by a koi pond.  Stepping stones lead a winding path through your favorite plants.  Exotic lighting creates dramatic shadows as you enjoy a warm summer’s eve with your closest friends.  What garden decor would you add to this?

The ideas are endless, the main point being to stay with the overall theme.  You want to beautify and enhance the outdoor garden.  Be selective with your gardening gifts, look around and who knows, you may even find something as unique as a mailbox!  😉
