Gifts for Gardeners, 2015 Edition

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just a little over a week away! It hit 71 degrees on Monday here in Western New York, smashing a record from over one hundred years ago! It looks like it’s going to be a green Christmas around here, and I have to admit, I am a little disappointed that we are most likely not going to have any snow– seeing as next Wednesday is supposed to be 54 degrees, we will have to wait a little longer.

So, that means your shopping days are limited, and I have compiled a nice list of gifts that the gardener in your life would “dig”. I would love Santa to give these gifts to me, so hopefully he will get them for you!

  1. I am absolutely crazy for this mouse watering can from gardeners.com. And the price is equally as great- $24.95. This is the perfect size for all of my houseplants.

2. This butterfly house is something I want to get my daughter. She loves butterflies, and why not have a place for them to bunk during the summer?

3. This Berger Birch and Steel Trowel is absolutely stunning. One can never have too many trowels!

4. I love jewelry that is simple and elegant. This Birch Bark ring from terrain.com is exactly that.

5. The book Heaven is a Garden by Jan Johnsen is something I am definitely going to get soon. This beautiful book gives you inspiration and great ideas on how to create a serene oasis in your own back yard!

6. I would like to take my mother on a trip to New York City to visit the famous High Line, the public “park in the sky”, so the book The High Line  would be the perfect gift to learn the background on this unique park!

 

7. Whether it be winter camping, or just pitching a tent in the middle of the woods on a starry summer night, you must always be hydrated, and this Stanley Thermos Growler with the great handle is perfect for any camping adventure.

8. When the snow finally comes, there is nothing better than coming in from a day of playing outside and having a nice mug of hot chocolate in hammered copper mugs. That, and I absolutely love collecting mugs!

 

So, there you have it. A few of my favorite things. A little something from every aspect of a gardener/outdoor enthusiast. I hope you have a great time shopping and you get everything on your list!

  1. Hi Wendy! I’m a little late catching up with things this week…I wonder why?! HaHa! This was such a fun post – I loved everything. The watering can was really adorable and I love everything from Terrain. A friend told me about Terrain when I was talking about the demise of Smith Hawken and I have found some great things on their website. I really like that red trowel – bit late to put it on my list now but I will think about that one for next year. My trowels have a habit of disappearing!
    Have a wonderful Christmas with your family! I’m sure that it will be warmer than usual. I hope this weird weather doesn’t affect any ski plans you have?

    – Kate
