Also, near the top of my list: a gift membership for anyone you know to one of your local gardens -- they all need the money, and what they offer is incomparable. And, as a gift to the gardens, renew your own membership while you're at it!
From the gift shop at the NY Botanical Garden:
window thermometers that can be attached to a variety of copper animal shapes ... choose from the butterfly, hummingbird, frog,bird.
They attach to glass windows with suction cups.
Cosmos Serving Bowl
It's made of recycled aluminum, will not tarnish, and would be a great favorite for anyone who's into perennials. A generous 13 inches in diameter, 5 inches high. It cannot be put into the dishwasher. There's also a smaller cosmos dish for sauces and the like.
No, these are not lapel pins. They, too are made of recycled aluminum -- and the perfect garnish for your salad bowl. Actually, 13.5" long salad servers for the person who'd love to use them at one of those fancy garden luncheons.
Placemats, tea towels, napkins, table runners, tablecloth, apron take your pick. The red and green gooseberry motif seems perfect for the holidays, and I, at least, like the botanical theme.
Celia Birtwell, the British textile designer, is definitely not my style, but I can imagine there are a lot of women gardeners out there who might covet her floral designs. Not only this journal is available, but also garden tools, gloves, and many other items.
Many other items available in the NYBG Store. Check them out.
