Holiday Gift Idea

 Christmas Gift Giving Idea

What can you buy for that hard to shop for person on your  Christmas list? Something  that is calorie free and doesn't need dusting.


We just purchased a membership to the Idaho Botanical Garden for my wife's sister and her husband.   I don't have to worry about size, color or gift wrapping.


If anyone on your shopping list loves parks, flowers, gardening or anything related, a gift membership to your areas popular garden is my gift suggestion. The benefit to your city or town is priceless. Online ordering keeps it simple. 


Memberships as Gifts

 What's the best thing about this idea?


 First......Visiting at various times throughout the year means this gift is alive.  It keeps on giving for the entire year.  The gorgeous gardens change with the seasons and a variety of interesting and educational programs available. 


Second.....Supporting non-profits like  the Idaho Botanical Garden keeps them strong and benefits the community tremendously.  Civic pride and love of nature benefits everyone. 


Boise is  home to IBG  and the current exhibitIdaho Botanical Garden Memberships make a great Christmas gift   is "Winter Garden aGlow".  The exhibit is open now through January 1.  For  20 years this stunning display of lights has  wowed visitors of all ages. If you're in the area, don't miss it! 


Do you still have shopping to do?

Great idea, Jack. I have bought Exploratorium memberships and Academy of Sciences memberships for others - a gift of an experience is the best gift for many people.

Wonderful! My daughter got her brother ( we do " Secret Santa in our family ) a membership to the parks, a Discover Pass - which I thought was a great idea!
