Father’s Day is approaching and it’s around the time we start scrambling to try and find the best gift they can to celebrate their wonderful dad. Rather than running out and grabbing just another clichéd Father’s Day gift why not change it up and send something a little different.
Read on to find out the top 7 reasons why you should choose and send a tree to dad this Father’s Day!
1. A unique gift idea!
Trees and plants make for unique and meaningful gifts that can be cherished for life. Just imagine dad waking up on Father’s day to a tree gift, it will be the last thing he’s expecting. It breaks the tradition of regular gift giving and gives the gift a whole other level of meaning.
2. Trees and plants make us happier
It’s been proven time and time again that the more trees and plants we have to surround us, the happier we feel. This means not only will you feel a warm fuzzy feeling inside when handing your unique gift over to dad but he’s going to be overjoyed too and in time his happiness will only increase.
3. The gift that gives back
Each year dad can watch as his gift flourishes in the garden and each time he’ll remember that particular Father’s day like it was yesterday. Not only will it give back in happiness and enjoyment but trees and plants give back in other ways too!
Choose a tree or plant that produces fruit and dad will have an abundance of crop for the picking year after year. The same goes for flowering plants, dads garden will be filled with blooms providing colour and fragrance all throughout the summer. There’s nothing better than that.
4. A fun family activity
Once dad receives his tree, it’s time to plant! Whether it’s going into a nice large pot or being planted out in the garden the day can be turned into a tree planting ceremony. Get the whole family involved and out in the garden. Over the next few years, it can be a team effort to take care of the tree and it will become a
5. Trees are sustainable and good for the environment
We can all do our bit when it comes to helping the environment so why not do it when you’re gift giving too? Commercial holidays like Father’s Day can produce a lot of plastic waste and many gifts are often thrown away and end up in landfill adding to the problem.
When you send a tree gift, you know that not only is it not going to end up in the bin. But once it’s planted it will give back to the environment by removing toxins from the air, creating a safe space for wildlife and producing oxygen.
Whether your dads a bit of an eco-warrior or not the environment will be sure to thank you for it.
6. There’s a Tree or Plant for every type of dad
With so many different types of trees and plants out there, there’s something for every type of dad. No matter the size of his garden or his favourite colour or food you will find the gift to suit him perfectly.
From trees that are large in size and stature that are well suited to a big garden to smaller plants that can be grown in a pot on the patio or in the conservatory.
UK native trees are perfect to send to a dependable dad, fruiting bushes for a foodie dad or a rose bush for a splash of colour in the garden. The list is endless.
7. A gift that will always be remembered!
Last but not least, it’s a gift that will be remembered for a lifetime. Like so many other Father’s Day gifts this isn’t one that just going to be chucked to the side and left to collect dust. Some trees live for hundreds, even thousands of years so if that isn’t a gift of a lifetime then we don’t know what is!
Send a unique Fathers day gift in the form of a tree or a plant and make dads day extra special this year! Even if you’re not there to celebrate with him, let him know you’re thinking about him on his special day.
