If you’re short of cash, why not make use of any roses that are gifted to you or are in the garden and create something home made.
A handful of rose petals; 3 handfuls so 3 roses, will dry to create a lovely gift.
Leave the petals on a surface in the garden before you bring into the house, to facilitate the escape of any insects. Earwigs hide in the folds of rose petals.
Use an old gift box to out your dried petals into.
Leave to dry for a week to ten days. The petals will retain their scent.
To add other subtle flavours to the mix, add your favourite blossom.
