What do you the girl who has everything? A bonsai is the perfect, unique gift.
You’re looking for a birthday gift for the special lady in your life, and you really don’t know what to get. What do you do?
Bonsai aren’t always the first thought when it comes to gifting and you may not have thought about it before, but a bonsai is a unique and interesting alternative present. It’s perfect for someone that likes to bring nature into the home.
Your mum, girlfriend or nan wouldn’t think twice about buying a standard house plant. Why then not get her something more sculptural?
An indoor bonsai is more than just another indoor house plant. They are a piece of living art to add to your home and creates a beautiful flow of the outdoor world, into your home. Unlike other plants, you shape its style as it grows, and it becomes ever more pleasurable over the years. With the correct care, bonsai can live for hundreds of years.
Not only do the different varieties of trees display different features (fruits, flowers etc.) but they also symbolise different meanings;
The Chinese Elm symbolises inner strength, intuition, wisdom & love.
The Oriental Tea Tree symbolises courage & heart, love & devotion.
The Chinese Sweet Plum symbolises protection, creativity, new life & warm wishes.
The Roseapple/Myrtle symbolises love, good fortune, long life & joyful living.
The Aromatic Pepper symbolises purification, healing, protection, peace & harmony.
The Tree of a Thousand Stars symbolises well being, good luck & hope.
The Miniature Jade symbolises good luck & prosperity (known as the money tree)
The Ficus symbolises health, fertility & love.
Finding a bonsai with a beautiful meaning would make the perfect birthday gift for her.
Birthdays and Christmas are difficult times to get the women in your life something special. Your mum / sister / grandma wants something thoughtful, and a bonsai says that. Furthermore, with all the various options to customise your gift, you get to add that extra bit of thought to it.
