Chocolate and flowers are the traditional gifts for Valentine’s day, and most anyone would love to get either or both of these. But for the gardener in your life, create a unique valentine gift for gardeners that can be enjoyed way past February 14th.
I love the names of flowers, so I started looking at flowers that were associated with Valentines or love. I found a flower called “Cupid’s Dart” and ordered them from Amazon.
Cupid’s Dart is a perennial and self seeds easily. It opens during the day and closes at night, requires full sun, and can be grown in zones 4 through 8.

The other seed I chose to place in the basket was Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate. Don’t you just love the name of this flower? I knew I had to include it.
Kiss me over the garden gate is an old fashioned annual that you don’t see very often. It self seeds easily in the garden. Growing between 7 and 9 foot tall with drooping pink flowers, it makes quite a dramatic picture in the garden.
Birds and gardens go hand in hand, so creating a bird lover basket would be a valentine gift anyone would love to receive. You can add bird seed, suet, bird magazine (such as bird and blooms) birdfeeders, and bird houses.
Looking for more ideas?
A tea basket with herbal teas, honey, a vintage teacup and saucer, and a magazine.
And lastly, for your popcorn loving friends, a popcorn basket filled with gourmet popcorn, different popcorn salts, and brightly colored popcorn bowls.
