Gathering together during the winter months has always been a way to bring cheer into our darker days. The distance of the last few years meant that as the holidays approached, many of our plans shifted and grew smaller. As we return to traditions centered around food and merry-making, we invite you to acknowledge the generosity of your host by bringing them a thoughtful gift.
Here are a few of our favorite items this season to share with your host:
Succulent Dish Gardens
Our pre-potted Succulent and Cactus Dish Gardens are hip, interesting, and one-of-a-kind. Perfect for the host who is seen as the trendsetter in your circle, these long-lived gardens show them that you appreciate their sense of style and the attention to detail they bring to everything they create.
- Grow in a brightly lit room or windowsill
- Water every other week
Our clean and modern potted paperwhites are a beautiful spin on a holiday classic. We’ve selected timeless containers and filled them to the brim with bulbs that will bloom mid-December, infusing the home of your host with their distinctive perfume.
- Grow in a well-lit room on a table or mantlepiece
- Rotate every few days for even growth
- Water twice a week or as needed to maintain good soil moisture
- Stake with natural redtwig dogwood branches or ilex berries
- Warmer environments will speed up blooming, and cooler rooms will slow down progression
Sea of Roses Candles
Locally made in Portland, Oregon, we love the simple design and perfectly balanced fragrances of these soy wax candles. Available in a range of inspired scents, we particularly love burning Ember, Paper, and Wood in the winter months.
- Trim the wick before each lighting to lengthen the use of your candles
- Burn in a well-ventilated space away from drafts
- Never leave a burning candle unattended
Herb & Cache Pot Pairings
For the host who lives in the kitchen, we love pairing a 4-inch hardy herb like Rosemary, Thyme, or Sage with one of our many beautify indoor cache pots. By taking a “choose your own adventure” approach to this gift, you’re able to select a plant and pot perfectly suited to their individual style. And because cache pots don’t have drainage holes in the bottom, they provide a great way to bring outdoor plants inside without making a mess.
- Grow on a kitchen counter or windowsill
- Remove plant from cache pot and water under the sink until water flows out of the drainage holes in the nursery pot
- Harvest herbs until plant begins to look spindly, typically 1-2 months
- Place existing plant outdoors to be planted out in Spring, and replace with a new herb or houseplant to fill container
