Late last year I received the gift of a potted sunflower (a dwarf version, about one and a half feet high), and it’s such a great gift!

I’ve already repotted it into a bigger pot and put it in pride of place at the front door, where it is such a cheerful and welcoming and, well, sunny little sentinel.

I’d recommend this as a great gift for anyone.  Also good for the ‘hard to buy for’ crew, as it is: inexpensive, cheerful, different and impermanent.  The significance of the latter?  Well, if the recipient isn’t crazy about sunflowers, or lacks a green thumb, this gift won’t be around for years and years, to annoy and embarrass them.  It’ll just be around for as long as the summer lasts, bringing six months of floral sunshine.  And if they love it a lot, getting another one next summer won’t cost them a fortune.
