Holiday gifts for gardeners

Give the gardener in your life a gift that brings the outdoors in

For a gardener, nothing is more depressing a sight than their once verdant flowerbeds covered over with snow. To help the green thumbs in your life shake off the cold-weather slump, we rounded up some of the best garden-inspired gifts to help bring the outdoors in.


Kitchen confidential

The easiest way to stay stylish while getting clean? Fruits & Passion's Cucina line. We love the pretty Pink Pepper and Anise purifying hand wash; not only is the heavy glass bottle apothecary-chic, but the soap is made with cold-pressed olive oil, cleaning hands without stripping moisture. Hand soap, $22.


Pretty and practical

Give the green thumb in your life a present that makes being eco-friendly extremely pretty. Botanical PaperWorks is an entire line of stationary products made from 100% post-consumer waste. Almost all the products are "tree-free," and can be planted in the ground or a pot for a show of pretty wildflowers. Our pick: Think, Write & Grow journal, $25.


Cavalcade of colour
Get a jump-start on next year's garden with The Ever-Blooming Flower Garden. Chock-full of helpful gardening tips and a handy flower catalog that includes everything from habit to bloom time, this book will help everyone from a budding gardener to the master gardener plan for the next garden season.


For the birds

This gift is not only pretty and practical, but it helps more than just our feathered friends. This ceramic bronze birdbath is made by artisans in Vietnam, who are paid a living, fair-trade wage to produce their artistic wares. While it's a little cold yet to put outside, this birdbath looks elegant on a table filled with fruit. Ten Thousand Villages, $22.
