14 Gift Ideas For Your Green Thumb

14 Gift Ideas For Your Green Thumb

For casual plant lovers and serious gardeners alike!

Do you have that one friend in your life that loves to garden? Do they have a birthday or anniversary coming up and you just don't know what to get them for their special day? Well, look no further! What follows is a list of totally cool, trendy, and beautiful pieces for your garden and all things plants!

1. Terrariums, terrariums, and more terrariums!

No matter what, your plant-loving friend will be sure to LOVE terrariums to house their plant buddies! Terrariums come in all shapes and sizes, from teardrops to geometric prisms to wood-encased boxes... you're sure to find one that will match the style and decor of any of your friends.

2. Seed Bombs

This is SUCH a cute idea! Aimed more at beginner gardeners (and also gardeners who live in urban spaces), these seed bombs are "...gently place[d] on top of soil, water, and voila - instant gardener!". This particular set is geared towards cooking herbs and spices, but there are plenty more sets for other types of plants.

3. Cute Printed Gardening Gloves

You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who wouldn't fall in love with gloves like these. There are plenty of other designs, but this pair, titled 'Jenna', remind me of the mod 50s housewife aesthetic. They would be so cute to wear, I wouldn't want to get them dirty!

4. Gardening Hints VIntage Cigarette Cards

These are more for those who want to make the insides of their home match the beauty of their outside gardens. Returning to that 50s housewife aesthetic, these cards harken back to a time when

everyone wanted to have the best garden, so perhaps these will push your plant-loving friends to have the best garden on the block, all while giving them vintage hints.

5. Easy Bloom 1000 Sensor

I know one thing that has always been a problem for me is figuring out what plants will work in my climate, no matter where I am. This cool little gadget solves that for you! You just stick it into the desired area to plant, it senses the environment, and uses an online database to tell you exactly what will work best to plant where-ever you are. Plus it has such a cute little design. Just a little bonus, although the technological side to this gadget will be what interests your green-thumb the most.

6. Parrot Flower Power Plant Monitor

This is yet another super cool gadget, but this one is probably better after you've planted your little plant baby. This one stays permanently next to your plant, and monitors the soil, temperature, sunlight and water levels and sends this information to your smartphone to help you figure out how to provide the best plant care.

7. Stylish Garden Apron

For those green thumbs who might have a yearning to be more fashion-forward, this is the perfect gift for them. Beyond the trendy print and pastel colors, the apron also seems to have a ton of pockets to store all the gardening tools you could possibly think of. Don't have any to store? Look below for cute gardening tools!

8. Garden Plot Markers

Whether they're metal spoons or colorful stones, there are plenty of options if you're thinking of buying garden markers for that special gardener in your life!

9. Infrared Garden Cameras

Put this baby in your garden and track the growth of your plants... or perhaps the movement of little critters that visit your garden when you're away!

10. Zen Gardens

This product is more for those who are cool and act unimpressed with the world, when really, all they want is to plant flowers, spread happiness, and smile... but can't because of an office job! This little kit fits nicely on any desk, and will provide distraction... or peace... during a busy work day.

11. Motion Detecting Garden Owl

A little pricey, but this owl is worth it for those serious gardeners who have a hard time keeping pesky critters who destroy garden crops away. This owl detects motion and turns rapidly, scaring away anything that might be in your garden!

12. Hydroponic Gardening Set

Hydroponic gardening is the new frontier (I guess). This handy little kit comes with everything you might need for plant lovers to try something new!

13. Gardening Sets

Truly for the stylish, these cool gardening sets are cute and useful for when you're digging up the garden! If you're not diggin' the floral print, there are plenty of other prints and colors for you to choose from!

14. Pokemon Planters

These are the coolest things I have on the list, in my opinion. In light of Pokémon Go, these might the hottest new gardening pieces on the market.

Enjoy and happy shopping, everybody! And remember... plants are the reason we can breathe. Thank your green thumb friends today with a cool gift.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.

Poetry On Odyssey: I was I am

A poem for those struggling with who they were.


it seems almost like a page

in someone else's book now

how there was

a time that i thought

i could have been happy

with someone like you

a million years before

i knew who i was

and that i should mean so much more

than i ever did to you

i almost can't remember

the way you held your elbows or

the way you said the letter o or

the way you told me goodnight

it seems now

that all i can recall

are my relentless tears and

the fear that this was the love

that everyone spoke about

the fear that this

was what id have to live with

for the rest of my life

i remember those late nights

just you and i

you always got what you wanted

i was always too afraid to upset you

looking back i wonder why

i couldnt leave you then

but you kept me

my misery maintained until

i felt like nothing

that night was the record scratch

When I knew my life

Shouldn't be like this.

It wasn't until I finally broke our ties

That I started to remember

Who I am.

But my mind is clear now.

I can remember

How strong I am,

How perfectly happy I am

On my own.

It seems almost like a page

In someone else's book now.

You're finally fading away.

I just wish my scars could fade as quickly.
