01 Feb A Blooming Valentine
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and you might be struggling to come up with a memorable gift for that special person in your life.
Do you really want to give more stuff? Think how much more meaningful it would be to give an experience – one that you know she (or he!) will cherish.
Give a gift that says this: “I know you love to garden; you’re obsessed with all things gardening! I support all those hours you spend fussing over the tiniest detail of the garden. I ignore the 10 cubic yards of smelly compost that sits in our driveway for 6 weeks every spring. I overlook the credit card charges to all those nurseries and plant sales. I don’t complain when you head out to yet another lecture from some gardening luminary. I love you so much, and who you are, and what your gardening means to you, that my gift this year is really going to show you that.”
Yea, that kind of gift.
Then here’s what you do. Go to the Northwest Flower & Garden Show website and buy a Two-Day Pass. That gives your beloved hortie plenty of time to see the show gardens, shop, shop, shop in our incredible Marketplace, and attend a half-dozen seminars by the leading garden writers and designers from around the U.S.
Next go to the website page for our hotel deals. These are great packages, not available anywhere else, with some nice amenities thrown in. The hotels are all located near the Washington State Convention Center, so going back and forth to the show is a breeze.
Put it all in a beautiful Valentine’s card. See the absolute joy on her face when she realizes you are treating her (or him!) to a dream garden show in a luxurious way.
Or to borrow from the classic commercials:
Two Pay Pass: $29
One night’s stay at a downtown hotel: $73 – $132
Your loved one’s smile when they see your gift: Priceless.
The garden show cannot be held responsible for all the good things that happen to you after this gift. You can thank us later.
So give your Valentine’s sweetie the chance to experience everything gardening. It will leave smiles on both your faces. ~ Janet
