Gardener's Supply Offers New Holiday Gifts from $10 to $50

"One for You, One for Me" Continued Trend in Gift Giving

BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwire - Nov 17, 2011) - According to the National Retail Federation and Gardener's Supply, a leading online retailer specializing in earth-friendly and innovative gardening goods, a high percentage of holiday shoppers purchase gifts for the lucky recipients on their giving lists... and then buy the same for themselves.

"When we choose a gift for someone, a part of our personal preference goes into the shopping and selection process," said Maree Gaetani, gardening relations at Gardener's Supply. "It's only natural to go with a gift we'd like to get, too!"

This holiday season, the Gardener's Supply Holiday Gift Guide offers a large selection of exclusive gifts ranging from $10 to $50, and here are some recommendations.

  • A Blooming Tea Set ($29.95) transforms an ordinary-looking tea ball into a "blooming" flower while you watch your tea steep through the teapot's hand-blown glass. Each single-use tea ball combines silver needle white tea and herbs like calendula, jasmine and hibiscus. The set includes everything you need for afternoon tea, with a 24-oz. teapot and strainer, 8 tea balls and 2 sachets of loose tea.

  • Give a gift of warmth and fragrance with the Gardener's Supply Exclusive ultra-plush Eucalyptus Lap Blanket ($39.95), which delivers soothing warmth and calming fragrance on its own or when warmed for a few minutes in a microwave. The rice and flax filling, together with natural eucalyptus, hold heat on the lap or around the shoulders to help soothe and relax. Each beautiful green chenille blanket measures 17" wide by 47" long.

  • Don't let rainy days stand in the way of your style! Colorful new Gardener's Supply Colorful Wellies ($49.95) are made of tough, natural rubber with lugged soles, perfect for the garden or a walk through the puddles in town. Available in four Gardener's Supply Exclusive designs including sunny yellow Chicken, bright red Poppy, delicate green and purple Frittillaria, and whimsical blue and green Pear, Wellies feature a quick-drying, fabric liner and removable insoles. Pair your favorite design with its coordinating wool Felt Zippered Pouch to hold lip balm, a cell phone, spare change and more -- then tuck it right into your bag or coat pocket.

  • A Gardener's Supply Exclusive, the terra cotta Monet Diffuser ($9.95) disperses the fragrance of your choice when filled with just a few drops of all-natural essential oil. The diffuser's unglazed underside, protected by its included saucer, slowly releases the scent through the clay.

  • A calming Lavender Plant in a rustic cachepot ($39.95) relieves stress and insomnia indoors and out. The 12-inch plant arrives in bud and bloom, ready to release its soothing fragrance when displayed in a sunny spot. Hardy in zones 5-9, it can be moved outdoors in the spring.

  • Pollinators and pest-eaters are gardeners' best friends, deserving of the finest accommodations! The Gardener's Supply Exclusive Moon Birdfeeder and Beneficial Bumblebee House ($39.95) and Beneficial Bat House ($29.95) are designed to meet the exacting requirements of each beneficial species, and are sturdily constructed of attractive fir, protected with eco-friendly preservative and oil stain. Attract wrens, bluebirds and chickadees to dine on insects, and let resident bats feast on those pesky mosquitoes.

  • A delightful Bird Watering Can ($29.95) can stand as sentry beside the kitchen sink, waiting to water indoor plants at a moment's notice. This Gardener's Supply Exclusive, constructed of powder-coated metal, is styled after the wetland-dwelling rail and can holds up to 4 cups of water.

  • The Peruvian Gourd Ornament (item #39-870, $19.95) is hand-carved by a Peruvian artists using a technique that's been mastered over 4,000 years. Display this detailed work of art -- a one-of-a-kind, intricate nature scene appears on each gourd -- at holiday time or throughout the year.

  • Available in two sizes, the handcrafted Red Wood Wreath ($24.95), adds rosy color and rich texture to your home. Velvety red "rosebuds" are actually tiny wood curls, shaved from long-lasting dyed balsam. Buds and pinecones are mounted on sturdy foam and can be hung from the attached twine loop or used in centerpieces.

  • Set the Vintage Compost Crock ($44.95) on your countertop and hideaway a full gallon of beneficial food scraps until you can deliver them to the compost pile. Reminiscent of an old-time pickle crock, the block-printed ceramic compost crock comes with two charcoal filters to trap odors.
