It is the time of year when everyone is coming out with their holiday gift lists. So, to follow suit, here are some curated ideas for the gardener or nature lover in your life.
1. Hunter Rain Boots – for the Intrepid Gardener
I love mine and wear them all the time. They’re perfect for tromping around the garden or exploring the outdoors on a rainy day. They’re not the warmest boots, so make sure to buy the Welly socks to go with.
2. Red Bee Honey of the Month Club – for the Epicurean
Wine of the month, or fruit of the month clubs are pretty well worn ideas. Here, you can give a gift of 4, 6 or 12 months of Red Bee honey (crafted right in Connecticut!)
3. Botanical Prints – for the Artist
I love botanical prints: black and white ones, vintage ones, or more modern/monochromatic ones. The ones below can be found on Etsy. One large print, or a collection of smaller ones makes for a great art installation.
4. A Weather Station – for the Weather Guru
For anyone who spends time outside; in the garden, hiking, skiing, running, biking, etc; getting information on the weather is critical. Yes, of course you can look at your iPhone, but it is much more beautiful (and fun) to peak outside to check out the temperature. This brass weather station from Rejuvenation lets you know both temperature and humidity.
5. An Herb Mat – for the Urban Gardener
At a conference earlier this year I met a young woman who works for this company, Urbnearth. They have created these really cool garden mats perfect for those who live in the city and may not have tons of space for gardening.
