One of the most unique gifts that you can give any gardener is a grow light. Why? Every gardener will love the freedom and flexibility that comes with owning a grow lamp and will thank you when they are able to grow plants indoors during the fall and winter months when it’s cold outside.
What Types Of Plants Will Be Grown?
Before going out and buying the first grow lamp that you find, it’s important to ask yourself what type of grow light should you buy for the gardener in your life? Should you buy a grow lamp that is made for growing plants from seed, encouraging vegetation growth or flowering?
Types of Grow Lamps
Fluorescent – One of the easiest grow lights to buy are fluorescent grow lamps. These lamps are energy efficient and very affordable for any gardener to buy. Many gardeners use them for growing plants from seed because, fluorescent bulbs are not as effective for long term growing and must be placed directly over the plant or seed.
T-5 Fluorescent – These lights offer the full spectrum of color that plants need to grow plus they are thinner, lighter and easier to use than the average florescent grow lamp.
Metal Halide – Every gardener should have a metal halide grow light in their growing arsenal. These grow lamps have the critical blue and violet hues from the color spectrum that are essential for getting a plant to start growing and flowering.
High Pressure Sodium – Another important lamp every gardener to have is a High Pressure Sodium Lamp. HPS lamps produce an orange and red light that is necessary for plants to start flowering and producing fruit.
Grow Lamp Costs
Grow lamps start at $45 and can cost as much as $500 depending upon the make, model and complexity of the grow lamp system that you purchase. To find the best deals on grow lamp systems check online or at a nursery near you.

Sometimes the best gifts aren’t things, but experiences. This is particularly true when it comes to shared experiences and the opportunity to make memories with the people that you care about. If you can’t face another tie for Father’s Day or another Mother’s Day bouquet, then why not go a different route entirely. Plan an activity that you can do and enjoy together.
Planning The Perfect Gift
The best gift activities are fun for both the giver and the receiver. You should try to choose something that your chosen recipient wouldn’t have though of for themselves, or alternatively something they wouldn’t have indulged in on their own. Make sure that you remember to do all the planning and prep work ahead of time so that all you two have to do is sit back and enjoy your time together. As for what you can choose, the options vary according to recipient but fun activities include:
• Trips to see a particular concert or play
• An extended spa day
• A no holds barred trip to the blackjack casino
• Tickets to a good game or fight
• Playing a game together
Of course, what’s truly important about this type of gift is not what you give, but what the two of you take away. Make your choice memorable and your recipient will treasure your gift. You may even want to consider a souvenir. The money that you win at the real money casino together, for example, could be spent on something for the two of you to enjoy together. Or you could purchase the supplies necessary to recreate your spa day again at home. If you go to an event, consider buying one of the official souvenirs to take home. It’s a nice way to round out the day and get the most pleasure from it, while ensuring that you can return to these happy memories together again and again.
