If you want to make someone feel that they’re truly special, how do you make a gift more meaningful?
Intrigued by the words of Sue Biggs, the Director General of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, who highlighted ‘the power of plants and the huge impact green spaces can have on our lives’ I set off to find how to gift that to someone. It encouraged me to not only look at plants for their aesthetic qualities, but to regard them as carrying a symbolic meaning. MINNIKIN, a brand which recognises the need to give a gift that is unique, symbolic and will continue to last, embodies this idea of plants being much more than a decorative item for the home or garden.
There's always an occasion, family member, or friend that can be difficult to buy for. We've all had those moments when we've been scouring our brains, and the internet for that perfect gift. It usually sees us resort to giving a soon-to-be devoured box of chocolates or, a bath & body gift set which, let's face it, is destined to end up in the recipients own 'emergency gifts' drawer. A MINNIKIN plant however, is that which gives you the ability to travel back to a momentous event in your life. Whether it's a landmark birthday, anniversary, christening, or wedding, a MINNIKIN plant takes you back to that special time, and is ultimately, something which will then become associated with the gift giver for a long, long time. With Father's Day looming, and the idea of gifting a case of beers perhaps not an appealing one, a Crispy Wave, Aloe Vera, Fig Tree, Palm Tree, or Olive Plant Gift Box from MINNIKIN might just be the ticket.
The plant can be delivered to yours or your recipients door, and its unveiling from the cardboard packaging, as the Beyond Bespoke team discovered only just this week, is really something to marvel at. The plant, which sits in a stylish hand-made off-black hat box, fits in nicely with any decor and is accompanied with the gift-givers very own personalised note. So, if you're struggling with a gift idea, especially for someone who seems to have it all, make a MINNIKIN plant your go-to gift. Shop their beautiful selection of plant gift boxes with us today...
