For the Indoor Gardener

Plant Spritzer

Its winter and we love our cozy, warm homes. However, sometimes our plants don’t feel the same. The dry heat can be rough on plants that like more humidity. A vintage-inspired plant mister is a trendy alternative to the typical plastic spray bottle.

A New Cache Pot

Whether you are picking up one of these as a white elephant gift, or for your dinosaur-loving friend, it’s going to be a hit. Cute animal planters are fun, but when you add plants, they’re irresistible. If your gift recipient has a more streamlined taste, opt for one of our many other beautiful cache pots in designs that range from solid colors to beautiful patterns. Either way, avoid stains on the floor or table with a cache pot!

Handheld Snips

Needle-nose pruners were a top choice from our Staff Favorites: Gardening Tools blog post. They are perfect for small or finely textured plants. The narrow blades are perfect to get into small spaces to work on all your houseplant maintenance.


For the Chef


Decorative Serving & Bakeware

Delight your brilliant chef with a beautifully printed mug or dish that they can serve their delicious creations in, like these mugs from designer Misha Zadeh. Plus, it’s a bonus to be thought of when your friend is cooking your favorite sweet treats, right?

You can’t go wrong with cookbooks for the foodie in your life that wants to explore new tastes. Bonus if they grow their own food! They’ll adore that you thought of them and their home-grown fruits and veggies.


For the Entertainer

A Customized Indoor Container

Do the decorating for your loved one and gift a custom container arrangement! Visit Swansons to talk to someone about the container and plant options and we’ll do the work to create something you’ll love. Your friend will be delighted to have a centerpiece that offers joy even after their fabulous party!

Candles & String lights

The entertainer knows that creating ambiance is a special part of an event. Think about getting them candles or LED string lights.

Does your gift recipient garden? During the winter, your flower gardener friends might be missing the garden smell more than ever. A carefully chosen candle will help them get through the cooler season until summer returns.



Help outfit an entertainer’s home or you can help outfit the entertainer! We have a fabulous selection of jewelry fit for any occasion and budget.


For the Budding Gardener


A Terrarium

Terrariums are versatile and don’t necessarily need a lot of attention for maintenance (especially one with an air plant, like in the photo!). Opt for a style that can hang or sit on a table and this unique gift can be placed anywhere. We’re happy to help you choose the items you’ll need to put an amazing terrarium kit together.


Kids’ Garden Accessories

We have an array of options for your little ones! These garden tools are sized down to be easy to work and play with. Little tools, watering cans, and even bird houses to paint at home are all exciting options to encourage kids out into the garden!

Bird & Wildlife Accessories

A new gardener will love wildlife visiting their garden. Help the birds find their garden with a lovely birdseed ornament! If you’re looking for something with more longevity, look into our bird feeders and birdhouses.


For the Urban Gardener

Hori Hori Knife

The Hori Hori Knife is the #1 choice tool of Swansons’ employees - as you can see on our blog, Staff Favorites: Gardening Tools. When living in smaller spaces, tools that can be multi-purposed are essential. The Hori Hori Knife is truly all purpose. It’s great for digging, pruning, sawing, scooping soil, measuring depth for bulbs, and more.

Hand soap

This soap is as luxurious as it is beautiful. With scents like Sparkling Peony and Apricot Fleuri, your gardener will fondly think of you every time they come in after working in the garden and wash off the soil to have fresh, clean hands.

Journal & Calendar

What a great gift to give your forward-thinking friends. Give the gift of a calm mind by gifting a journal to get all those plans out on paper.

Is your friend a gardener? With sowing, harvesting, and maintenance dates for different plants to remember, a journal to put those mental to-do lists down in ink is the perfect gift.


This is just a taste of the great items we’re carrying this season. We have an abundance of plants, pottery, and beyond – you’re sure to be able to find something for everyone on your list!
