Consider yourself lucky if you’re shopping for someone who loves to garden. Like runners, knitters, foodies, and other hobbyists, there are entire stores devoted to their interest, which can make the task of finding a suitable present rather easy. This year, give yourself a slightly harder assignment—and buy them a garden-themed present from a small store or maker. (Bonus points if it’s local to boot.) Below, some ideas.
Above: If you’re visiting or living in Hudson Valley, New York, consider a stop at the Quiet Botanist, an apothecary and dried flower shop, for your holiday shopping needs. If you’re not nearby, check out their site for gift ideas, like these artfully dried stems of Banksia ($22) and Single Palms ($12).
