Gifting a GreenStalk

on November 26, 2014

It’s Christmas-time! Finding gifts for family members and friends can be pretty tough. So I thought I’d share with you what my plans are for those hard-to-gift people… What better gift is there than a GreenStalk? I mean, it never goes out of style and it even saves green while making green. Now what’s better than that?

They come compact (the whole system sits within itself) and the best way to wrap them is colored cellophane. All you need to do is cross-cross the cellophane on the floor, place the GreenStalk in the center and pull all four sections over the top of the gift, fasten with a ribbon. If you want to keep it a secret, place some uncrinkled tissue paper in the cellophane before combining it. Beautiful. I’m going to add some fun compliments as well:

Starter seeds – ask your local nursery or Home Depot for what’s best for your area
– depending on what you choose, be sure to get tomato plant stakes and string if you choose tomatoes, green beans or any other vine-like plant
Nifty hose – consider where the GreenStalk would be in its home. How much hose is needed? If you’re getting this for a new homeowner they will thank you for the hose!
Gift cards to the recipients local nursery – let them pick what they want.
Weather chart – if you’re crafty, this is a free printable that would be so neat if you’re giving this to a child or a young family. It’ll help teach the young ones about weather and how important it is for our food. Anything we can do to help educate the young ones is a win-win in my book.

Heres a few ideas on who would love a GreenStalk:
A science-loving youngster
A young family
Retirees looking for a new hobby
Urban dwellers
Penny pinchers
New homeowners

I know my loved ones will think this is great, probably because it’s a lasting gift that just gets better year after year. I’m so excited! I’d love to hear how you chose to give a garden gift, too!
