Gardening in the Midwest has its rewards, but winters can be tough. If you know someone who misses being out in the yard, Strader’s has so many gift ideas for Christmas – many of which you can enjoy through the winter season!
With the happy chirping and singing of birds lessened in winter, wind chimes can give voice to chilly, breezy days, filling the silence with natural beauty and charm. We have many types of wind chimes to choose from in all sizes.
Christmas is also a great time to give gifts for the upcoming season. What gardener wouldn’t love new gardening gloves, a garden seed packet or a gift card for their favorite local garden center – Strader’s.
Inside the home can be bright and green even if the yard isn’t! Houseplants make memorable gifts even if someone isn’t a gardener at heart. A beautifully crafted terrarium or miniature garden from Strader’s is such a fun gift to receive – and to give. We have many different containers and plant varieties to choose from if you want to create your own, or choose one of our already-made terrariums for a quick, easy and very thoughtful gift.
Want to share your love of gardening with family and friends? The gift of an amaryllis or paperwhite bulb with a decorative glass container and glass marbles or stones provides the perfect opportunity to grow winter color in an almost fool-proof way. Anyone from children to seniors can enjoy the thrill of growing something themselves by simply adding water.
For those beautiful birds that brave the winter months – cardinal, woodpecker, blue jay and more – a decorative bird bath is a wonderful gift for the gardener in your life, and the birds in your yard. But bird baths freeze over solid, you say? A bird bath heater for Christmas will warm hearts as it warms our winged friends!
This is a great time of year to give bird water feeders and charming bird houses to provide more permanent homes for the many varieties of birds we are treated to in Central Ohio. Your local Strader’s also stocks a full line of bird seed, mealworms and suet. We even have ear corn, peanuts and critter mix for the wildlife that you want to keep away from your bird feeder.
It’s not too late to make your home Merry and Bright for the holidays! We still have a great selection of Christmas trees and all the trimmings plus fresh greenery, wreaths and garland. Fill your house with warm winter scents with Ohio-made candles and wax melts from Swan Creek and Crossroads. Candles and melts also make great gifts!
We hope to see you soon! Have a wonderful holiday season and stay safe and healthy.
