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.

To the guy that shot my brother...


To the guy that shot my brother,

On January 9, 2019 my families entire life changed with one phone call. The phone call that my little brother had been shot in the face, no other details. We didn't need any other details. The woman on the phone who called us in full panic told us where he was so we went, as soon as possible. I don't think it helped that not even 10 min prior I talked to Zach on the phone.. kind of irritated with him, and the ONE TIME I didn't say 'I love you' as we hung up. Could've been the last time we ever spoke.. I remember pulling up to the hospital thinking 'this can't be real' 'it's not our Zach' 'this is just a dream Sarah, WAKE UP' I'd close my eyes really tight just to open them, I was still in the hospital emergency parking lot. I could still hear the ambulance sirens coming. It was all real.

The day our life's changed was definitely a test of faith. A test of how strong we were, as a family. I sat in that waiting room ready to see the damage that has been done to my sweet baby brother. Because at that point we had no idea how lucky he got. That glimpse of seeing Zach will haunt me forever. How helpless I felt in that exact moment frequently wakes me up from these horrific dreams I've been having ever since that day. That is a moment burned into my me and families brain forever.

You always hear about these things in the movies or on the news, a house being shot up, someone shooting another innocent person, not to care if they died on your watch. But we found ourselves on the news.. We have been confined to the hospital since that day. Running on barely any sleep, taking shifts of sleep so we don't make ourselves sick taking care of Zach. Watching him suffer. Undergoing surgeries, to repair the damage you did.

Before I proceed let me tell you a little something about the man you shot.

Zachary Keith Wright. A blonde hair blue eyed boy. Who could potentially be the most annoying human on the planet (possibly coming from his sister). A man who loves his God first, loves his family second. Perfect by no means, but almost perfect to me. A 19 year old who was to graduate high school this month. After graduation he was prepping to leave for Marine boot camp in the summer.. being in the military has been Zach's dream since he could talk. Literally. Running around, playing war with underwear on our heads, and finger guns. Some would say we looked like natural born assassins.. growing up he has been a country boy. Let me tell ya country to the core. He loves this country like he loves his family. He believes in helping people, taking charge in what's right, and never leaving a brother behind. He's lived by that his whole life. Until now....

The day you shot him. The day not only did you change my brothers life, you changed his families life too. The day you almost ripped my brother out of this world... for what? A misunderstanding? Because you've let something take ahold of your life that you can't let go you're willing to kill someone innocent over? Luckily for him, his guardian angels were protecting him in your time of cowardice. There were 3 times that day he should've died, the time you shot him, the time you tried to shoot him again as he stared you directly in the face, (even tho he couldn't talk I know you could read his eyes, and he still intimidated you. That's why you tried to pull the trigger again) and the time he was running out of the house. But he lived. A man who was shot in the face, didn't lay there helpless, didn't scream in agony. That MAN walked to the neighbors to get help. Why? Because he's a MAN, and because he's on this earth for a reason.

It's gonna sound a little strange not only to you, but the audience who is reading this. I must say thank you. Even in this situation, this was the best outcome we could get. He gets to live. He will make a full recovery. He will graduate. And he will go off into the Marines. You united my family together. Closer than ever. Thank you. You tested our faith and brought us closer to our God. Thank you. Because of your moment of weakness, you showed us what prayer could do. Heal anything. Thank you. This was a bump in the road, and a helluva way to kick off our year of 2019. But here we are.. all laying in the hospital. I'm looking around as mom is sleeping in her recliner chair exhasted but still here, Zach his awake playing his xbox all hooked up to machines, fighting to heal and get better. And of course I'm writing this letter to you.

See you in trial,

From the girl whose brother you shot.
