Imagine waking up in the morning, outside the window birds are singing, the sun is shining, a colorful pointy hat is poking out the top of a rosebush… Wait what? That’s a gnome! Is that Dopey? why yes it is! Did I end up in a Brothers Grimm fairytale? Nope, still in my own garden!
Seriously now; garden gnomes, frogs, cats, even crocodiles have become, over the years, very popular garden decorations. By now there is something to fit every taste, any culture and any fandom! Is your friend a Lord Of The Rings fan? Well, the hobbits keep quite a mean garden, don’t they? why not get your friend a hobbit house decoration or a stone troll for the garden? The feeling of the fairytale that these objects create will help us to relax in the summer, swoop back into a feeling of careless childhood, when the world is still a mystery and everything is astonishingly interesting. According to folklore, every land has a keeper. It is better to be on good terms with the keeper, and better yet if you choose them yourself – then the sun is shining, flowers are blooming, trees are growing….
Gnomes are considered to be protectors of the house, everybody knows that gnomes hide treasure! Who knows, maybe the next time you are digging up the blueberry bush, you’ll find a small chest!
Another Gift to turn your the garden into fairytale is a birdhouse. A stylish element of decor for the garden and a free musical arrangement!
Who should you give a birdhouse to?
Giving it to a child can help him to discover more about animals and teach him to take care of our small friends. It is not some toy that will be gathering dust in the attic after he has gotten bored with it, but will get him unwired from the internet and out of the house for a while, helping with his development. A birdhouse can teach a child responsibility – and that something better taught from a young age.
A birdhouse can be a really good wedding gift as a symbol of family nest. It can also cheer up a friend who is passing a hard time.
Basically almost anyone can enjoy a birdhouse as a gift!
