My holiday gift ideas for garden lovers are on Pinterest


Somebody stop me! No — don’t! I’m having too much fun pinning my favorite holiday gift ideas on Pinterest.


I’m a Pinterest regular (see my boards for Lawn Gone!, Digging, and Garden Inspiration, among others) because it’s a great way to share ideas and posts with people who love gardens, plants, design, garden art and accessories, gardening for wildlife, and more. Many new readers and even a few design clients have told me they found me via Pinterest, so I know a whole bunch of you are Pinterest surfers too.


Shannon Lester, an Oregon blogger at Blooming Desert’s Daily Dirt and owner of Steel Life, recently invited me to be a guest pinner for a week on her Pinterest board Guest Pinner Holiday Favorite Things. Why not?, I thought. It sounds like fun.


Boy, is it ever! I hope you’ll pop over to Pinterest and check out my pins today through December 17th (my pins have my name and picture at the bottom-left). I’ll be adding new gift ideas every day, and if you see something you love or that would be perfect for someone on your list, I hope you’ll “Like” it or repin it to let me know. Check out too the pins of previous guest pinners on that board. I’ve already spotted several items they pinned that I think would make good gifts — or future self-gifting ideas.


And in the interest of full disclosure, I want to assure you that no one is paying, bribing with cookies, sweetly asking, or otherwise soliciting me to pin their items. These are my own selections, reflecting my own quirky tastes. Consider yourself warned.

I hope this helps you find the perfect gift for someone. Happy pinning!

      Garden decor gifts can be tricky, I find. People’s tastes are so personal and can be so different from the giver’s. But if you know their taste well, garden art can be a fun, unique gift, and of course tools are always welcome. Hope Santa is good to you this year! —Pam
