Valentine’s Day is around the corner. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite gifts that we are certain will be a hit with that special someone in your life.

Succulent Smiley Face Arrangement

These adorable little succulent arrangements will put a smile on anyone’s face. These little plants grow best in bright light and only need to be watered once every month during the winter season. Increase watering to once per week during spring and summer.

Heart-Shaped Stones

These beautifully carved stones will remind your special someone how much you love them everyday of the year. Use them as a paperweight, a worry stone, or as decoration in a fairy garden or mini Japanese zen garden.

Gal Pal Gifts

Looking for a Galentine’s gift? We love these containers with sweet sayings that any gal pal would love to receive! If your friend is fully stocked on containers, these pink ceramic mushroom stakes make a great accent to any potted plant.

Heart Sun Catcher

This beautiful beaded heart sun catcher is a charming addition to any space. The loop at the top makes it easy to hang on a window, door or porch. Hang it on a hook and allow the the metal bell at the bottom to chime in the wind.

Glass Hummingbird Feeders

Any hummingbird lover will enjoy the beauty of these glass feeders. Hummingbirds will be flocking to these feeders as they migrate north in the spring looking for food. The glass feeders come with a hook for easy hanging.

Make Your Own Hummingbird Nectar

1. Mix 1 part sugar with 4 parts water and bring to a boil. (City water contains chlorine or fluoride. Boil 2 minutes before adding sugar.)

2. Cool and fill feeder.

3. Extra sugar water should be stored in a refrigerator.

4. Do NOT add red dye to the solution.

It’s important to clean your feeder at least once a week in early spring. During summer months, feeders should be cleaned every other day.

Kitchen Herb Garden

We can’t imagine a better Valentine’s Day gift for a gardener than a selection of kitchen herbs. These herbs can be easily started indoors with a grow light. They will thrive inside with bright light until temperatures are warm enough to bring them outdoors. Kitchen herbs grow well in pots and we think these adorable wooden labels are a charming accent to any herb container.


Fairy Gardens

Whether you want to add to your Valentine’s existing fairy garden, or get one started, we have a great selection of fairy garden accessories. Choose from a variety of whimsical accents for a fairy garden that is as special as your loved-one.


A fun new houseplant will brighten anyone’s Valentine’s Day. We have a wide selection of indoor plants, from light-loving succulents, to low-light tolerant philodendrons. Whether your Valentine is new to caring for houseplants or has an extensive collection, you are sure to find the perfect plant for that special someone.
