Herb Gardens Make A Great House Warming Gift


For the most of us, purchasing a home is one of life's most significant events. It's one of the reasons a new house is a such a cause for celebration. Many, though, do not get creative enough when it comes to house warming gifts. A bottle of wine, a cheese grater or a toaster - all of these have been a part of "typical house warming gifts" list, and, aside from a bottle of wine, which can always find use, such gifts are often undesirable to the new house's owners. If you do not want to fall out of favor with your friends you may want to consider herb garden gift as a unique alternative. It will not only stand out among all of the generic gifts at a party; what makes it a great house warming gift is that it will keep growing and truly warming the house.

A Better Choice

Since herbs grow beautifully not just outdoors, but also indoors, giving an herb garden gift to city-dweller with a new apartment is the best way to get an urbanite interested in gardening. Indoor herb gardens make a great addition to anyone's kitchen, and those interested in gourmet cooking will most likely appreciate your gift and your thoughtfulness. Also, as culinary arts is not the only application for herbs, herb garden gift could entice your friend to learn about herbs' medicinal powers. And if a new house owner is an organic foods enthusiast, what could be a better present than an herb garden gift that allows one to have fresh, organic herbs in one's own kitchen?

A scent of lavender in one's bedroom or a savory meal hinted with rosemary or basil on one's stove - herbs' versatility and stunning blooms make them a treat for our senses.
