A homemade gift is always better than something you can buy at the store! Especially for someone who has everything or is hard to buy for. Even if it’s something as simple as personalizing a coffee mug, monogramming a casserole dish, or making a fun candy bouquet!

Sometimes you just can't expose your plants to enough sunlight, like if you live in an apartment and you don't have a backyard. But that's not a problem, because there are some beautiful plants that grow in the shade, so you can plant them in your apartment or any shady spot of your backyard.
