Valentine's Gifts for Gardeners

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

For Valentine's Day, consider giving flowering cacti or succulents asa gifts to that gardener.

Valentine’s Day happens to be one of the most celebrated during the first quarter of the year. A survey found that shoppers spend on average about $175 per person on Valentine’s Day purchases.

This included gifts as well as entertainment ( dinners, tickets, etc.). Although both men and women buy Valentine’s gifts, women are more likely to buy things for family and friends as well as for significant others.

Flowers and flowering plants, including cacti and succulents, are some of the more popular Valentine’s Day gifts. It comes as no surprise that the color red plays an important role during this holiday, making it ideal for flowers and flowering plants.

According to researchers, this color has considerable physiological effects on viewers. It tends to raise blood pressure, bringing a quickening of the pulse and heart rate. For flowers and blooming plants, pink and white are also quite popular colors.

During this time of the year, the flowering kalanchoes are at their most beautiful. Why not choose these for Valentine’s gifts? Florists will have these available in beautifully decorated baskets. Those who prefer can create gorgeous gift baskets of their own for that special person.

Along with the kalanchoes, include other gift items in the basket, such as some gardening supplies or a special book, such as one on cacti and succulents. Unlike candy, plants and books are calorie-free.

Collectors Press has published a book that is just perfect as a Valentine’s gift. “Chocolate-the Sweet History” by Beth Kimmerle. This is food history at its best. Engaging, enlightening, and thoroughly enjoyable, this book is beautifully illustrated with historical images. All the details chocolate lovers would ever want to know are here from the history and mythology of the cocoa plant to its cultivation in various parts of the world.
