Great Valentines Gift Ideas from Tagawa’s!

Need some inspiration for Valentine’s Day?  Tagawa Gardens has plenty of ideas! Take the picture above, for example. Are they fresh flowers?  Nope, they’re stunning faux flowers now available in Tagawa’s beautiful gift shop.  They can brighten your valentine’s home with yummy, lush color until the real blossoms are ready a few months from now.

Given as gifts, these wonderfully realistic reminders of spring can be transformed into beautiful arrangements that will make spring seem not so far away.

Cute… and maybe a bit mischievous

“Yard art” doesn’t have to be big or elaborate.  Like with these little creatures.  All decked out, and ready for action!

What would bring a smile to your valentine?  A fishing raccoon…. a pair of motorcycling varmints…. a meditating squirrel?  Tagawa’s always has small statuary that can add a sweet and silly touch to any garden. They’re especially fun tucked in next to a small pond or racing through some knee-high greenery.  Vroooom!

Need some mid-winter color?

How about an easy-care houseplant that’s sure to draw admiring comments? Bromeliads are about as exotic-looking as an indoor tropical plant can be, and yet they’re surprisingly easy to grow.

All your valentine has to do is give the bromeliads bright, indirect light and keep some water in their center “cups.” The red and yellow flowers will last for months. Friends and family will think your loved one has grown a brand new green thumb!

Make your backyard birds happy!

Not long now until the your neighborhood birds will be in a romantic mood themselves. Offering them a safe place to raise and feed their family may be just the thing for your nature-loving valentine!

No reason the accommodations have to be dull!  Bright, colorful bird houses and feeders come in all shapes and sizes. Why not offer your valentine a way to help Mother Nature’s creatures, and decorate their garden at the same time?

How about fresh herbs, even in the dead of winter?

An indoor herb garden may be just the thing to show your love this Valentine’s day!  All these robust little plants need is a sunny windowsill.

Tagawa’s carries a large selection of indoor herbs year ’round.  Pick out a few plants and a pretty container, and you’ll have a custom herb garden that will need nothing but a bow!

Tagawa Gift Cards are always a winner!

No matter the occasion, a Tagawa Gardens Gift Card is always a hit!  They’re good for months, and can be used for all kinds of plants and merchandise… everything from trees to tools, seedlings to succulents.  The Gift Cards are available at our newly-remodeled Guest Services counter, or online at tagawagardens.com

Come see us at Tagawa’s for even more ideas on to make your Valentine’s shopping a breeze!  Wishing you and your’s a happy and loving Valentines Day!
