The Valentine’s Day Gift Your Loved One Will Cherish

We’ll never speak badly about chocolate or diamonds. But this Valentine’s Day, we’re lusting after something a bit more long-lasting than material things. This year, give your loved one the gift of memories and plant an herb garden together.

Here’s why our outdoor DIY herb garden kit is the best Valentine’s day gift money can buy.

Grow more love.

Couple with new Valentine's day gift

However much we might love “stuff,” real-life experiences help shape our identity and create life-long memories. In fact, one study conducted by the Harris Group, found that 78% of millennials would choose to spend money on a desirable experience rather than buying a tangible object. That’s because doing things with the people you love is far more valuable than giving objects (unless, of course, the stuff truly evokes joy — thanks Marie Kondo). In other words, growing together is the valentine’s day gift that only grows more love, i.e. the ultimate romantic gift.

Include the entire family.

Yes, traditionally, Valentine’s Day is about your romantic partner, but why not make it about all your loved ones? The hobby of gardening is perfect for enjoying with the entire family. You can learn and perfect your gardening skills, reap the benefits of growing as a family, and take pride in what you all grow together. If you’re a growing novice, don’t worry! Our Grow Pro experts are by your side to help you throughout your entire gardening journey. It’ll be even more satisfying to learn alongside your children and partner.

Create long-lasting memories.

The great thing about growing? It only grows more memories. Whether you’re creating memories while growing or creating memories while eating your garden’s harvests, you’ll be constantly sharing time with the ones you love.

Looking for a fun ‘Galentine’s’ idea? Order one of our Cocktail Herb Gardens by February 12th, grab your besties, and get growing! Our kit is ready to plant and ready to use for your special girls’ night in. By V-day, you’ll be sipping cocktails garnished with your very own freshly-harvested herbs. Longtime gardener Lauren Conrad (“The Hills,” anyone?) actually grows her own herbs and has a wonderful blackberry champagne cocktail complete with lavender, thyme, and rosemary.
