It is the beginning of the holiday shopping season for most, and that means scouring the internet for the perfect gift for that special someone. This post will be the first of a series of gift guides, specifically for the handmade shopper. Since I am a handmade artist, I want to help others that are like me. In this series, you will only find handmade gift idea items, made by small ma and pop shops found all over. So without further delay, here is the handmade gift guide for garden lovers!
Handmade Gift Idea #1 Garden Decor
All summer long I crafted my heart out. I poured my love into each item I made. My favorite item in my shop is my rain chains. Each of them is different and unique and perfect for any garden, small or large. Click each pic to be taken directly to the product page!
Handmade Gift Idea #2 Alternative Planters
Unique one of a kind is my favorite thing to shop for. And my book planters are a perfect representation of alternative. Each book is saved from certain death at the landfill.
Or check out this amazing troll ceramic planter over at Ceramics By Lori on Etsy! It is adorable, and you clearly know how I feel about succulent hair! Click the image to be taken to Loris Etsy Shop!
Handmade Gift Idea #3 All Things Succulents
Terrariums are pretty self-sufficient and take very minimal care to thrive, They are perfect for the lazy gardener in all of us. A mist of water to start, and then only when the rain stops forming! They come as a set, with a fancy shelf to hang them from. Since terrariums are not fit for shipping assembled, you will have to put them together! Click the pics to be taken to the shop!
Handmade Gift Idea #4 Even More (faux) Succulents
Even though succulents are the easiest plants I have ever grown, some people still tend to kill them. Friends don’t let friends live without at least one, albeit faux, succulent to adorn their home. Enter a few options!
