Gift Guide: For the Armchair Gardener

Michelle Slatalla December 13, 2013

Of course every gardener you know is going to spend the winter pruning shrubs, raking leaves, and sharpening tools. But this is also the season for curling up indoors and planning ahead for spring. Is there an armchair gardener on your gift list who’s getting ready to settle into a comfortable chair?

Above: The armchair gardener needs something interesting to read. Bound in calfskin and printed on acid-free paper, a National Parks Atlas has maps, travel tips, and offers information on national forests and state parks, as well; $59 from Orvis.

 

Above: The armchair gardener should be warmed while napping. Hand knit in Peru, Eileen Fisher’s Baby Alpaca Knit Throw measures 70 inches by 40 inches and is $348 from Garnet Hill. 

 

Above: Everyone likes a nice hot cup of tea on a cold afternoon. A Kaico Kettle designed by Makoto Koizumi and made of enamel-coated steel with a beechwood handle and maple knob is $150 from Emmo Home. Photograph from Rakuten.

 

Above: Help the armchair gardener feel productive with a book that will inspire a new planting plan for spring: garden designer Piet Oudolf’s Planting: A New Perspective was one of my favorite books of 2013. It’s $26.45 from Amazon. Photograph by Michelle Slatalla.
