Designed to hang your favorite hummingbird feeder, wind chimes or garden art from, these stunning hangers are made in California by Ramona Teagarden from recycled glass and a hand-hammered brass hook.
Garden art is a great way to add whimsy and fun to any outdoor space. Jolyon Yates builds adorable made-to-order powder-coated black steel ornaments like this Garden Bird Singers garden sculpture that can either be plunked in soil, in a planter or screwed to a fence or balcony. And unlike real rabbits that can wreak havoc on your veggies, this set of Bunny Family Garden Sculptures won’t eat your produce!
And speaking of wildlife in your garden, maybe if you give this rustic Western Red Cedar Squirrel Feeder to a friend, there will be fewer holes in your flowerbeds!
For gifts that keep on giving, consider a gift membership to the non-profit Seed Savers Exchange, where members can trade heirloom seeds and plants with other gardeners. Or, make a donation to Save the Redwoods, and they’ll plant a seedling in honor of your gift recipient.
