Useful Living Gifts: Herbs


Finding the right holiday gifts for everyone on your list can be a challenge. This holiday season, don’t fret! Instead, give the gift of life with indoor herb gardens. There are plenty of reasons why they make the perfect gift. Not quite convinced? Here are some considerations that might change your mind.

Why Herbs Make a Perfect Gift

First, they are easy to find and assemble. In fact, if you don’t want to do any of the potting yourself, simply purchase a kitchen garden that is already assembled.

Second, indoor herb gardens are customizable. You can pick and choose which herbs you want to include in the garden so each of your friends gets a different variety.

Third, they are a useful, practical gift. People who love to cook know herbs can make or break a dish’s taste and appeal, and having fresh herbs on hand makes creating meals more fun. But the truth is, it doesn’t really matter whether the person you’re giving them to uses the herbs for cooking or not. At the very least, an indoor herb garden will make their space more lively.

Holiday gift giving will be a breeze this year when you choose a few herbs to give to your friends, family and co-workers.
