The Owl & The Pussycat Christmas Gift Guide: Green Fingers

I love my garden, it brings me so much pleasure and despite a love to travelling abroad (when I can), I always enjoy returning home to see what’s bloomed! I have Just come in from the garden after pruning the wisteria and cleaning up for feels like millions of leaves. How do I end up with only one gardening glove each time I go into the garden? It’s a complete mystery! Good job our little shop sells gardening gifts, especially gloves and hand cream, which is so important this time of year.


Gardening gloves and hand cream gift set

“In the Garden” Gloves & Hand cream set by Heathcote & Ivory, contains a tube of hand cream and a pair of cotton gloves which is a perfect gift for ladies that love the garden. It’s a pretty gift set in a box with a floral design that will delight any gardener with its shea butter hand cream enriched with vitamin E and essential oils of lime and tea tree, together with elderflower, blackberry and rhubarb extracts. The printed cotton gloves have illustrations of flowers and vegetables ideal for keeping hands protected while working. The products cruelty free & Vegan friendly too!


Hand cream gift set


Another perfect little stocking gift for green-fingered ladies is our “In the Garden Hand Cream Trio”.  Three miniature tubes of different smelling hand cream, small enough to go in any gardening apron. Inspired by pictures of British gardens, each hand cream is scented with notes of sweet rhubarb and lilac blossom together with green leaves and white roses. A delicate box contains these three tubes of hand cream, decorated on the outside with wildflowers and I know I’d be delighted to find these in my stocking on Christmas morning. A brilliant stocking filler for the keen gardener as well as who those ladies who just like to have hand cream in their handbags. 


Hand cream and mug gift set


Finally, in this trio of gifts for gardeners, and perhaps the most important is our gift of all containing a mug for the very well-earned cuppa after a day’s gardening.  Not only is there a beautifully decorated flower mug but inside the mug is a tube of hand cream, a tube of exfoliating hand wash and a nail brush. The shea butter hand cream is blended with rhubarb, blackberry and elderflower extracts, the exfoliating hand wash is enriched with essential oils of tea tree and lime.
