Did everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving with their friends and family? It seems like Thanksgiving is often overlooked with the onslaught of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and so on. I have to be honest, everyone asking for Christmas gift ideas and if my shopping is done kindof stresses me out.
Can't we just wait until December? I feel like I might still have Halloween decorations lurking about...
So, If you are like me and just beginning your holiday shopping, look no further. Our holiday shop has plenty of fun, unique and affordable gift ideas for friends, family, teachers, and co-workers. Enjoy!
Moon Valley Organics
Moon Valley Organics is a line of personal care items based in Washington. We've fallen for their amazing line of products which are made 100% USDA certified organic, sustainably farmed herbs using permaculture practices. Moon Valley alchemists include a Naturopathic doctor (ND), Internal Medicine doctor (MD), Oriental Medicine practitioner (MSOM), and skilled herbalists who lovingly and expertly concoct holistically sophisticated herbal formulas. Not only are their products amazing, but they prices can't be beat. We love the Grapefruit Thyme Herbal Sand Soap that is just $5.99 and the herbal lotions pictured below are the perfect balm for sunburn, aching feet and psoriasis.
We've been using Roo Aprons for a couple of years now and they can't be beat. It's no surprise they were designed by a busy mom that loves gardening. We will let her speak for herself:
Yes we've managed to find a way to grow and sell plants even in the dead of winter. The next two gift ideas are living breathing plants that will bring a breath of fresh air to your home or office.
Air Plants don't even need dirt! We have a good selection of air plants (tillandsia) right now, along with terrariums and stands to show them off.
Amaryllis make great gifts for teachers and children and really anyone that enjoys fresh flowers in their home. They are super easy to care for and grow very quickly. Children can measure day to day growth making it a fun and educational winter gardening project. At The Barn, you can buy the bulbs, or we have them pre-planted and ready to go; the ideal hostess gift.
Briers William Morris
This line of garden accessories can't be beat. It's cute to begin with but what we love is it's functionality. The pruners and gloves stand the test of time and the boots are just as well made as the more expensive brands you can find in department stores. This December, you can save 30% on Briers William Morris garden accessories when you use coupon code: GIFTOFGEAR online.
Floral Cocktail Kits
These little herbal and floral cocktail kits make the perfect addition to any holiday bar or hostess gift this holiday season! They are available in 5 packs for $29.99: Champagne Lovers (Think New Years Eve Parties!), Tipsy Lemonade and Vodka Lovers. Also sold individually for $7.99.
The Nuttery Bird Feeders
It's time to feed the birds! This winter, choose a bird feeder from The Nuttery. These well crafted and designed bird feeders are our favorite because of their modern design, cool colors and the fact that they actually keep squirrels at bay.
Luke Adams Glass
Is an ocean lover on your list? Any dreamer will love our hand made glass items by Luke Adams. We have the sun catchers, stars and hearts in every shade of the rainbow. We would choose these for anyone that considers their happy place the beach!
