This is so easy you can make it in a day. Paint it any color you like and if you want to make it extra special, buy a plant or seeds for a vertical growing plant that will cover it in sweet blooms. Click here to see what is on my wishlist to plant by my Arbor.
2. Kitchen Garden Grow Box
This is great for growing salad greens or herbs. Include a packet of seeds (see #6 below for ideas) and a bag of potting soil to make the gift complete. Paint it any way you like.
3. Farmhouse Victorian Garden Bench or Sweetheart Bench
Both of these designs would be a hit and you can paint them any color or with various designs. Build two and keep one yourself, they are so easy and fun!
4. Rustic Toolbox for a Planter
These are so popular and you can see why, they make a great planter or even a centerpiece. You can also use it to hold utensils at your backyard bbq or picnic, it is just an all around useful project.
5. Potting Bench from Fence Boards
Yes, even this beauty cost us under $50 to build.
6. Don’t feel like building anything?
I love the boxed collections Botanical Interests of fantastic seeds.
I grow their seeds all the time, in fact I had so many Alyssum plants this year I was giving them away after filling all my pots and garden! All from one packet of seeds.
Any gardener would love to get one!

10. Garden Obelisk
We have built a few of these and they are still standing and doing their job beautifully after 5 plus years.
11. I couldn’t leave out my favorite DIY gift I have ever received. I know this is a dream of many women to have one and I have the detailed plans available here. Build your own She Shed aka Crafting Cottage
I use mine mostly as my painting studio. I can’t tell you enough how much I love my little space to get away to paint and run my business!

Happy Building and Gift Giving!
