November 30, 2022

Our editors and writers, who run the gamut from gardening neophytes to landscape professionals, are sharing the items on their holiday wish list—chic, smart, and unique things you’ll most definitely want to add to your own. Here, their objects of desire.

Clare

Pretty much everything in hazelnut corduroy from Le Laboureur is on my Christmas wish list. I love the chic French Farm Pants and the Flat Cap, which chime perfectly with my Vita-esque fantasies of how I’d like to look while gardening; \$\198 and \$88 at Gardenheir.com .

I’m constantly trying to boost bird life in the garden—they bring so much life and joy through the year, as well as vital pest control, but I’m less keen on having lots of plastic feeders. The English bird tables and dovecotes in reclaimed pine at the Beautiful Birdhouse Co, with shingle roofs and rusted metal ridges, are adorable. This English \1 Tier Handmade Birdhouse in Reclaimed Pine is \$\178 at Gardenheir.

Fan

My stock of persimmons is down to just a handful now (after buying a number that borders on the unseemly earlier this fall). I&#8\2\17;m hoping Flamingo Estate&#8\2\17;s Persimmon Winter Jam will feed my addiction through another season; \$35.

I want serious gloves I don&#8\2\17;t need to replace every year—like this pair of Women&#8\2\17;s Gardening Gauntlet Gloves; \$49.95 at Duluth Trading Co.

Everything that French brand Bacsac makes is covetable (even their newsletters—I have framed one), but for the garden potterer who has everything but enjoys innovations, I&#8\2\17;d like to suggest a Chantepleure Water Can; €60.83 at Bacsac.

Above: Island Bee Project runs educational apiaries around New York City to support pollinators. A photographer I work with, Valery Rizzo, swears by their Propolis Throat Spray, extracted from bee propolis—naturally antimicrobial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory; $16.

Kier

I&#8\2\17;m already in love with Dovetail&#8\2\17;s Britt X Ultra Light pants that I wear to work everyday. Now they have the Britt Utility, gray thermal denim for our chilly winter work days. Dovetail&#8\2\17;s thermal fabric is from recycled poly and uses 43 percent fewer fossil fuels than conventional polyester. It&#8\2\17;s currently on sale for \$9\2.8\2.

I can never get enough of Frances Palmer’s pottery. Her vases have such personality; they make any flower arrangement look chic. I have my eye on the White Earthenware Footed Cup with Handles; \$375.
