From The Shop: Lovely and Affordable Stocking Stuffers

Jenah Barry, Retail Manager of The Shop at Wave Hill, brings to the position the sensibilities of artist and floral designer. 

Where did the year go? Christmas is only a week away! Rather than resort to frenzied, last-minute shopping in busy malls and crowded main streets, rather enjoy a beautiful stroll in Wave Hill’s tranquil winter landscape and pick up these charming last-minute stocking stuffers—all sized to fit perfectly into a stocking and all priced to fit your wallet!

For the Kids:

The Complete Peter Rabbit Miniature Book Collection is sized and priced just right.

Charming elf boy and girl dolls look so sweet popping out of a stocking.

Bird whistles are always a favorite—and are only $1 a whistle! A ladybug bead-rattle is a sweet little toy for your littlest one. In fact, we have a delightful collection of classic childhood toys, including kaleidoscopes, harmonicas, slinkies, marbles, bubbles and more!

Sketch books and craft supplies are fun indoors when it is cold outside.

For the Grown-ups:

Watercolor pocket-boxes and postcard sketchbooks are perfect for landscape sketching at Wave Hill.

Start the new year with a fresh page in a botanical notebook, add lovely notecards and magnets and feel both organized and elegant as your greet 2014.

Roll-on, beaded bracelets are available in a beautiful color palette, are comfortable on almost any wrist, can be dressed up or down and are lovely worn individually or stacked.

Artisanal, soy-wax candles packaged in charming mason jars are a treat! We have them in delicious seasonal fragrances, including ‘fresh fig and cardamom’, ‘blood orange and citrus’ and ‘vanilla and oakmoss.’

Handmade, luxury soap-sets with delightful, botanical packaging and fragrances evoke Wave Hill’s Flower Garden in high summer. Relish the heady scents of ‘sweet pea and clover’,  ‘pink garden rose’ and ‘vintage peony.’

Smudge braids, infused with sweetgrass incense, are harvested wild in the mountains. When burnt, their unique, vanilla-like scent is centering and relaxing.  Add in an organic soap made with a fresh infusion of real mountain plants, and white-sage incense sticks made only from wild crafted plants, tree sap, wood and bark found on backcountry hikes

National Audubon Society field guides to trees, birds and wildflowers are always a great gift.

Give the gift of Wave Hill Membership, a meaningful gift that will provide happy memories and much enjoyment in the year ahead! You will receive a notecard featuring a lovely winter scene, perfect for popping into your loved ones’ stockings. As a seasonal bonus you will also receive The Gardens of Wave Hill book and notecard set. They may be too big for stockings, but make a lovely addition to their pile of gifts under the tree.

All proceeds of sales at The Shop benefit the gardens and programming, and so your purchases are meaningful in many ways.

Season’s Greetings and thank you for your support this year!
