A wreath from John’s Nursery!



Need a clever gift for the helpful neighbour next door? Stop by John’s and pick up a pretty wreath for their door. Even if they already have something hanging out front, an extra wreath adds cheer wherever it lands: over a mantle, on a bedroom door, in a powder room, or even in a home office (strategically placed so it shows up in your next video conference, of course). gardenKitchener members get 10% off their purchase at John’s, with proof of membership, so pick up some extra garland, or decorations for yourself while you’re there!


A house plant subscription from Royal City Nursery

We love this idea for the young person in your life who is just starting their journey as a plant parent! Gift them a house plant subscription from Royal City Nursery and they’ll receive a new house plant every month, along with all of the supplies and information they need to care for it. (Side note: while gardenKitchener members receive 10% off their in-store purchases at Royal City Nursery, we weren’t able to confirm whether or not this subscription is included in that arrangement. Regardless, we still think it’s a fantastic idea, so we couldn’t help but include it here!) Royal City Nursery has a ton of other great gift inspiration and resources (how to wrap a house plant, anyone?) on their website too, so it’s worth a browse!


Everlasting decor from Sheridan Nurseries

Have a young person on your list who just got their own place? Help them to start some new traditions by gifting them a timeless piece of holiday decor. A small, neutral, everlasting wreath or garland swag will never go out of style, can be tucked away easily under a bed at the end of the season, and can remind them of this exciting point in time for years. It also won’t drop needles in their apartment lobby, trigger their roommates allergies, or create issues for their four-legged friends. Sheridan Nurseries has lots of fantastic housewares and decor in stock: gardenKitchener members, you get 10% off your regular priced, in-store purchase!
