Kiss My Aster book Another fantastic gift idea for gardeners is a gardening book! I love receiving them myself. You can gear it to their specific interests say, rose gardens or growing organic vegetables.

Indoor Palm Tree - Kentia
Indoor Palms are not only attractive tropical plants … they are very efficient air cleaners as well. They are effective in removing formaldehyde, xylene and benzene from the air.

Air-born pollutants come from such common items as carpets, paint, copy machines, manufactured wood products, pesticides, upholstery, laminated counters, plastic wallpaper, and detergents.

Many palm trees offer smaller varieties, typically topping out at 6 – 8 feet or less! These dwarf palms thrive in containers with minimal care. A wonderful gift for those who love the tropical allure of majestic, serene palms in a manageable size appropriate for indoors.

Tru Blooms is the first perfume of its kind, created from flowers that were planted, grown and harvested in the urban gardens of Chicago.

The scent is divine…with the essence of fragrant rose petals, rose geraniums, lavender, lily of the valley, plus orange and kumquat zest. Base notes of patchouli and warm musk round out this soft and feminine scent.
