December 23, 2020 Newsletter
This past week I’ve read so many great posts on social media about gift ideas for gardeners. I love reading through those lists and seeing what types of gifts people think gardeners want.
I decided it would be fun to pull together the greatest gardeners’ gift list ever! Word of caution here. I had some fun with this. All the gifts on this list are definitely on my wish list, but I’m fairly certain there are some that are not on my “meets the budget” list.
If you are going to dream, dream big, right?
Heirloom Flower Press
There’s just something magical about pressed flowers, and what better way to press your flowers than with this June and December handcrafted heirloom flower press.
It’s made from reclaimed Michigan wood. You can upgrade to brass fittings, making this the perfect heirloom to pass down to your children someday. This flower press is gorgeous!

Leaf Supply Gardeners’ Set
This is the perfect gift set for that special someone that loves house plants (even if that someone happens to be you).
This gift set comes with a lovely white-patina planter, a bar of handcrafted gardener’s soap, and a guide for keeping your house plants happy and healthy. Perfect!

Art Illustrations by Everyday Print on Etsy
Etsy is one of my favorite places to buy gifts. I love the idea of supporting small businesses. Especially women-owned businesses like The Everyday Print Company.
The Everyday Print specializes in minimalistic art illustrations. The color palettes are incredible. There are so many beautiful designs to choose from. One of my personal favorites is this illustration of a woman with a philodendron plant.

Rogue Scuffle Hoe
This scuffle hoe already has a home in my garage. It’s been a game-changer for me in the garden. I learned about this tool from Steve at @Natchezglenhouse. He hosted an Instagram Live where he chatted about how he handles weeds in his cut flower gardens. I’m glad I tuned in.

Weeding is now very easy and very fast thanks to this scuffle hoe. It’s built with an ash handle and high-quality steel construction. I can recommend this tool for any gardener looking to become more efficient at weeding garden beds.
The Urban Cultivator is an all-in-one home garden that lets you grow fresh herbs, microgreens, and vegetables indoors. They have residential and commercial versions of their growing systems available.
This is a completely self-contained unit that has a pre-programmed control center that automatically regulates water, light, and humidity. The units are not only functional and ensure you grow healthy plants, but they are incredibly stylish. They have residential units that look like high-end built-in appliances.

The Commercial Urban Cultivator
In a world of instant gratification, this is the perfect answer for instant gardening gratification. The Instant Hedge. This company provides 25 varieties of hedges. All available in three different heights including 5 to 6 feet tall. Immediately ready for planting on arrival.
Seriously, if money were no object, I would definitely buy “many” of these.

Your Own Perfect Gardening Shed
This one goes in the dream big category. This lovely 400 square foot work studio would make the perfect garden shed. I love the huge glass sliding door walls.
If it wasn’t placed in the middle of the garden, there may never be a reason to leave.
Big Dreamer’s Garden Shed and Library
A Victorian Greenhouse
Of all the big garden dreams I have, owning a greenhouse is the biggest. I imagine a snowy Michigan afternoon where I am nestled inside my warm greenhouse, surrounded by orchids and rosemary.
Seriously, if money were no object, I’d find room for this. And I may never leave.
