It seems the theme of the season is “uncommon” gift ideas. While it is easy to walk into a store and buy your mom the first ugly holiday sweater you see “just because,” I prefer to give gifts that people would actually use AND enjoy. My father in law has the green thumb in the family. He’s one of those people on our holiday list that gets a nice button down shirt for Christmas because there really is nothing he needs. This Christmas, I’m sure he will be excited when he opens his gift to see that it will be a great hobby!
The people over at Uncommon Goods have just that – UNCOMMON gifts. I had the opportunity to work with them on a review of their Bonsai Forest and their Hanging Air Plant Pod. These green gifts are appropriate for anyone in your family that enjoys gardening and tending to plants.
Plant gifts and wood gifts aren’t all that you will find at Uncommon Goods. They have gifts in just about every category to cover almost everyone on your list! From unique, to practical, they have you covered. Check out their extensive line of products on their site.
The Bonsai Forest that I received includes: tree and moss seed, recycled steel seedling training pots, seed starting wafers, growing medium, bonsai scissors, rake with spade, river stone, and directions. The Bonsai Forest will begin to sprout in a few weeks. Image shows 3 year old forest. Can be placed outside if season and location provide sun and water conditions specified. Mold may occur without ventilation, make sure airflow is maintained through plastic wrap or bag. Please note: the kit comes with 2 types of seed, moss seed and tree seed. Each has its own step within the instructions included with this item.
The Hanging Air Plant Pod that I received to review is perfect for people who like the look of plants in their home but just don’t seem to have any luck with plants – people like me. The Hanging Air Plant Pod is very low maintenance. Note: The Air Plant is not included, just the unglazed Moroccan brown planters come in the package. These can be propped on any countertop or suspended using the included cord. No dirt is required and watering is minimal.
