Fairy Garden Gift Guide
Tis’ the season (well almost) for giving, and those present ideas are all over the place right now. However, if you’re looking for unique and whimsical ways to surprise friends and family over the holidays, consider fairy garden figurines and accessories.
With literally thousands of items to choose from, it’s easy to get overwhelmed in the world of mini gardening. Therefore, we’ve put together a helpful guide for those who know – big things really do come in small packages.
Starter Kit – Maybe you’ve already experienced the joy that comes with creating fairy gardens and you’re ready to share that with others. For the newbies and novice micro-gardeners, you can put together a small start kit with everything they need to begin this imaginative addiction. We suggest selecting 2-3 fairy figures and then accessorizing. A small house or door, along with possibly a table and chairs, benches, or an animal friend can be the perfect accompaniment. No need to go overboard with the details, but adding accents like a stone wall or butterfly paver, and small décor like a lamppost or welcome sign may be all you need to introduce someone to the world of fairy gardening.
Themes – One of the easiest ways to gift someone with a micro-garden is to select a storybook or fairytale theme. Choose from classics like Snow White, Bambi, Alice in Wonderland, and the Wizard of Oz. Or, create your own theme with specific figurines and accessories for camping and wilderness, a seashore scene, a Viking village or the wild wild west. Instantly create an enchanted forest in their own planter, or a secret garden in a colorful flowerbox. Everything they need to set the stage, and everything you need for the perfect holiday gift.
Personalization – The wonderful thing about micro-gardening is how individualized it can be and how you can bring your own personality to the garden. Think about the person receiving the gift and consider matching the fairy figurine to their hobbies and character. Do they like to swing on a tire, or teeter with friends? Do yoga in the garden or find a quiet place to read? There’s a fairy friend for all. Or, you can commemorate a special occasion that you shared with them through fairy gardening. From trips to the county fair to pumpkin patches and petting zoos, personalizing a fairy garden speaks volumes to the time and thoughtfulness of the gift you are presenting.
Seasonal – For more casual gift-giving, winter fairies and accessories make the perfect token of appreciation. From sledding to tobogganing, snowball fights to ice skating, and caroling to cocoa, fairies and their furry friends love this time of year. And it’s easy to create the perfect winter scene, whether adding to your village under a tree, or starting a new tradition with snow-capped evergreens, holiday greetings, and welcome mats for all who believe.
Mix & Match – Get even more creative with your presents by selecting some of your favorite figurines that aren’t fairies like pixies, trolls, and gnomes. Toss in a few unique and unusual extras like outhouses and gazing balls and let your friends and loved ones put together a story like no other. You can also go big or go home. Villas, mini mansions, and solar stumps are sure to wow over the holidays. A centerpiece on its own, it can easily become the heart of someone’s new fairy garden.
