Gift Ideas for Everyone!

We put together a handy little Holiday Shopping Guide a couple weeks ago to help steer you in the direction if you are stumped on what to get as a gift! There are 6 different guide categories, catering to the main groups of loved ones you may be shopping for! 

  1. Gifts For Your Gal Pals
  2. Gift For Your Favorite Foodie
  3. Gifts For The Hard-To-Shop-For
  4. Gifts For You Favorite Guy
  5. Green Thumb Worthy Gifts
  6. Superb Stocking Stuffers

But don't let those categories limit who you can shop for! Our kits are also great for grandpa and grandma, parents, sisters, brothers, cousins, friends, or white elephant gifts!

You may notice we have two different types of kits: Heirloom Seed Sets and Garden Starter Kits. What's the difference? 

Our 3 different Seeds Sets have a much larger variety of options, 8-10 packets depending on the kit, and a cute little box with enough bamboo markers for each seed variety. You will need to purchase your own starter pots and seed starting soil. 

Our 7 Starter Kits (8th coming very soon!) contains everything you need to get your garden started! 4 types of seeds, soil discs, burlap pots, bamboo markers, sheers, and an instruction manual.

Festive Crafts for Indoor and Outdoor Gardens!

Who doesn't like to make their living space merrier this time of the year? Below are a few simple crafts to put some jingle in your garden!


  • Decorating pots: Want to spruce up your plain old boring pots with some cheer? Try decorating and painting them after your favorite Christmas figures. You could do Santa, the Grinch, elves, reindeer, or penguins! This one is perfect for plants that you will need to re-pott in a few weeks anyway!


  • Rock Painting: This is a great one for every one of all ages! Just grab some paint and brushes and get artsy! You paint the same characters as in craft above. Some other paint ideas are Christmas trees, presents, lights, the nativity scene, or snowflakes.


  • Decorate Your Plants!: And of course, you can just copy the classic Christmas tree's decorating and decorate your plants! You can buy mini lights, ornaments, and small ribbons and hang them from the plants themselves! Make sure you only do this to healthy, mature plants, so you don't break them. You can also decorate the table, windowsill, or stand that the pots are with cloth, ribbons, lights, and figurines! 


If you really want to go all out and make a spectacular display, you can combine all three craft ideas above for extra twinkle. If you've purchased one of our kits already has a gift, you can tie a pretty ribbon around the wooden box and put it directly under the tree!
