10. Small Dehydrator for drying herbs, fruits & veggies $39

There are a lot of dehydrators on the market, and the prices vary dramatically. I actually received a Magic Mill dehydrator for Christmas & I can’t wait to use it this summer! The one below is much smaller, and costs significantly less.

Trees & Perennial Plants

For the three options below, I recommend visiting local greenhouses or nurseries and looking to see what they have available in the category of perennials.

11. Fruit Tree $20-$50

If you plan to pick up just one fruit tree, make sure it is self-pollinating, like most peaches, or else you will need to do a bit more research on what varieties can pollinate the tree.

12. Rose bush or other perennial flowering plant $20-$50

Roses will cost anywhere from $20 – $50, nothing else says “I love you” like buying your loved one a rose bush that will produce beautiful roses for years to come. I gifted myself a climbing rose this past weekend, and I have to say, it certainly made me happy!

13. Perennial herbs

Another fun idea is to pick up a collection of perennial herbs, like rosemary, lavender, sage, thyme, oregano, lemon-balm, and mint. I actually did this for a Father’s Day gift for my dad who loves to garden!
