Holiday 2021: Gifts They Will Love
You want to show the special people in your life how much they mean to you with the perfect gift for the holidays, but coming up with ideas can be daunting sometimes, right? You want the gift to be thoughtful, meaningful, and to bring your loved one joy.
Here are a few of our top ideas that will be sure to make them smile this holiday season.
Ornaments are a fun way to give a personalized gift with meaning. Our selection of Old World Ornaments this holiday season are mostly gardening and nature-themed, including an adorable pair of pruners, a flower pot with a dog in it, a mini greenhouse, a hummingbird feeder, a red rose, and a watering can. These mouth-blown, hand-painted glass ornaments are created using the techniques that originated in the 1800’s.
Green Gifts – Live Plants
Seasonal plants like amaryllis, paperwhites, poinsettias, and Christmas cacti are always welcome and appreciated during the holidays. Also consider something from our houseplant selection and add on a decorative piece of pottery or holiday ribbon. Our staff can help you to choose the perfect one, and we can ever re-pot it into the pottery of your choice if you’d like and add a bow. Research shows that houseplants make us happier and healthier, so you can feel good about giving a green gift that will last well beyond the holiday season
Statuary, Fountains or Birdbaths
Sure, it’s not the time of year when your loved one is sitting outside enjoying the garden, but a quality piece of fine stone statuary, fountain or birdbath from our handmade in the USA selection is sure to say, “I love you.” Some of the items are quite heavy, so make it easy and have us delivery it for you.
Holiday Décor to Deck the Halls
For the person who has everything, give them one of our hand-designed wreaths, porch pots, or greenery arrangements. The smell of the fresh greens alone are sure to bring them a smile and cheer up their outdoor space. Our Winter Sizzle container gardens add beauty through early spring, when the plants can be transplanted into the landscape bed to enjoy for years to come.
Gardening Tools and Gloves
These are a must for all gardeners. You can always use a new pair of gloves, pruners or a trowel. Grab an assortment and arrange them inside one of our Kew or Anise pottery pieces from Botanical Collections.
Passiflora Springs Wine
Our wines are made here on the property in small batches by Russ Bedner. Offerings include Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, Kiwi Pear Sauvignon Blanc, Pure Passion (passion fruit sauvignon blanc), and a Chocolate Dreams port wine. Gift boxes and bags are available. Wines are for sale anytime during store hours, and tastings are on Saturdays from 10am – 2pm.
Container Garden Club – 2022 Membership
Our club meets four times per year to create a seasonal, mixed container garden:
Spring Container: April 12th
Summer Container: June 21st
Fall Container: September 13th
Winter: November 22nd.
Membership includes everything needed to create a unique design– a re-usable 12″ container to bring back each season, potting soil and a selection of seasonal plant offerings.
Each of our meetings will feature one of our Passiflora Springs Wines that you can sip on while you plant. Our Container Garden Club is limited to 25 folks, so sign up now!
In the event that the recipient is unable to make it to any of our planting evenings, we will coordinate with them to create the perfect plant palette for pick up at an alternate time, or they can substitute with another container workshop in that same season.
Fields to Fork Dinner Tickets
Our farm dinners are a treat for all of the senses that your loved one will look forward to. There are four 2022 dates to choose from. Tickets include a relaxing night at the farm with a scenic hayride through our fields, live music, and a multi-course dinner prepared by a guest Chef with our homegrown produce and other locally produced foods. Each dinner course is paired with a wine selection from our own winery, Passiflora Springs.
Local Food Gifts
Support our local, small businesses by creating a food gift package with Pittsburgh Honey, Cedar Run Farms Maple Syrup, Cunning House Coffee Beans, and Bearded Devil Hot Sauce. They’ll enjoy the handmade quality, and you’ll be supporting the hard work and dreams of our local entrepreneurs. All of these items are available in our produce department this holiday season.
Gifts from our Community Market Day Vendors
Shop small and support our Community Market Day vendors. Every Saturday from 10:00-2:00pm, local businesses are set up to sell their unique, handmade items. Some examples from previous market days include cupcakes, chocolates, nut rolls, flavored popcorn, knit hats, soy candles, floral wreaths, travel journals, and so much more. Vendors change week-to-week. Your support of small businesses strengthens our local economy, encourages innovation, reduces climate impact by requiring less transportation, is an investment in our community, plus you get better service by meeting the owner face-to-face.
Give a Gift Card of any denomination, or better yet, add one on to any of the gifts above. Make the gift a bit more special by adding on a bottle of wine and an ornament with your Gift Card, or a pair of Bedner logo gardening gloves and a piece of pottery. Have fun and get creative with it!
Angel Tree Donation
Give a gift in honor of or in memory of a loved one by supporting our 2021 Angel Tree. You choose how you want to give— 1) buy gifts for the residents of a low-income, senior housing building in Canonsburg, or 2) make a donation to a local man with ALS and his family.
Once you either turn in your angel tree gift items or make a donation, we will give you a printout to include in a card.
Our helpful staff is ready and available to help you find and customize the perfect gift this holiday. We are here to make it easy for you to give your friends and family the very best.
