I can't speak for Idaho, but I can for New hampshire.

Families: NH is a good state for families. Low crime, decent schools, plenty of activities. The Lake Region is very pretty.

Conservatives: NH is more conservative than the rest of New England (Northern Maine may be the exception). However, Idaho is among the most conservative in the U.S. (#7 according to this list). While NH residents are notoriously fiscally conservative, they take more a live and let live approach to the social issues (same-sex marriage is legal with minimal opposition in NH). I think a conservative from Mississippi would laugh at the notion of NH being conservative.

Gardeners: No idea. Whichever has a better growing season. There are some neat local farms, and people who really care for gardening in NH, but I wouldn't know how to compare it to Idaho.

Christians: Idaho. Easily. NH is among the least religious states in the U.S. (#2, behind neighbor Vermont according to this list) and Idaho ranks among the most religious. Church and Christianity don't play a huge role in daily life for a good chunk of NH residents.

Sun Lovers: No clue. Winnipesaukee is a summer playground, and ocean beaches aren't too far away. Maybe NH? I'm not sure.

I agree with Irfox on most points with New Hampshire, conservative NH is more libertarian set and less socially conservative. It is New England after all.

If you're looking for sun then Idaho has more abundant sunshine than New Hampshire, though Northern Idaho where the lakes are gets more precipitation on par with the rainy/damp areas of the Pacific Northwest. NH is damp as well, thus both areas sustaining a significant lake regions. Southern Idaho has abundant sunshine and is semi arid in the valleys. Though Idaho could fit nine New Hampshire's inside its boundaries.
