Thrill the gardener, plant lover and alfresco party planner in your life with gifts that will surprise and delight them. Because while it’s the thought that counts, a fabulous gift doesn’t hurt either.
The following list of growing beauties, outdoor accessories, and luxurious lounge furniture was carefully curated to meet the needs of all patio lovers — no matter how big (or small) their patio may be.
Organic Microgreens Starter Kit
Have someone who wants to develop a green thumb, but needs a little help? The Organic Microgreens Starter Kits from Seattle Seed Company include everything they need to grow two different varieties of organic microgreens. (One is zesty and one is mild.) All your loved one will need to do is follow the instructions and place the kit on the window sill. Plus, these kits come with enough seeds for multiple plantings, making them a gift that keeps on giving!
Fermob Balad LED Light
Let there be light! Because no one likes to sit outside in the dark. With the Fermob Balad LED Light, your friends and loved ones can light up their patios and decorate them at the same time! These beautiful LED lights come in a variety of colors and retain a charge for over 7 hours. They can be suspended from one of two styles of metal stands. Or you can scatter them throughout the patio on table tops and the ground to create a layered effect. Plus, there are two different light settings, allowing you to tailor the light to set your desired mood.
Harvesting and Gathering Bag
Know someone who likes to forage or makes frequent trips to the farmer’s market? The Harvesting and Gathering Bay by Barebones is just for them! This ultra-sturdy canvas bag is water-resistant and equipped with multiple pockets. The straps are convertible, allowing you to adjust the carrying method as needed. And, the bottom, drops out, letting you quickly unload your harvest. Plus, it’s elegant enough you might just consider using it as an extra-large purse!
Let the wind turn the garden into a stage with a set of wind chimes from Sweetlife Farm. Made in the US, these elegant wind chimes come in a variety of tones and pitches, including:
These will quickly become the exquisitely crafted jewel of any garden!
Nothing says, ‘Let’s cuddle,’ quite like a new love seat. But even better is when that loveseat is an elegant addition to your outdoor space. Gloster’s Bay Love Seat delivers just that! Made of rich teak, they offer a deep reclined position for maximum comfort. And, each piece is topped with thick cushions to encourage lounging.
Have a friend or loved one who is ultra-competitive? Embrace their competitive spirit with a new cornhole set. This light up one from GoSports allows participants to play even when the sun goes down!
Outdoor Dining Table
Is dining alfresco his or her thing? Then an outdoor dining table is a must. Kingsley Bate’s Chelsea Dining collection features a 72-inch or 85-inch long dining table — allowing enough space for an entire dinner party to eat together outside. Constructed of teak, this addition creates an outdoor destination that’s elegant enough for china and comfortable enough for burgers.
Outdoor Fire Pit
Bring the heat this Christmas with an outdoor fire pit. The O. W. Lee Capri fire pits feature a variety of porcelain finished tabletops, allowing these fire pits to do double duty.
Stainless Steel Kebab Set
Backyard grilling is as quintessential to most of us as baseball during the summer. Get your backyard grill master prepared with a Stainless Steel Kebab Set from Williams Sonoma! This set is ultra-durable and reusable, allowing your flame-cooking pro to make dish after dish.
While roses may be beautiful, they can also be vicious. Roses have developed thrones over time as a defense mechanism. And those prickly bets can do some real damage to the skin! Rose gloves are designed to protect the hand and forearms while pruning and caring for the lovely buds. These heavy-duty leather gloves are supple enough to allow you to maneuver, while thick enough to keep the thorns at bay.
