A wreath for the holidays stems from ancient tradition. Meaning 'to writhe or twist', the wreath was originally woven from olive branches and used honor the victorious. The later addition of traditional evergreen plants such as holly, ivy, mistletoe and pine symbolized the circle of new or everlasting life overcoming the forces of winter.
Here at DIG we have our un-usual contemporary twist on the traditional with limited edition Eucalyptus Pod Wreaths. These fragrant, architectural arrangements will last for years and can be displayed on your door or decorate your table. Either way, this modern centerpiece will become a conversation piece with all your holiday guests.
As we try to conserve as we create, this year we are carrying an eclectic variety of living trees. Natives include Western Red or Incense Cedar, Grand Fir and Sequoia and we also have Colorado Blue Spruce, Cedrus Deodora, Ponderosa and Scotch Pine, among others. This stunning collection offers a variety of texture and color that will add to your environment long after the holidays are over and the cut trees are compost (and as an added incentive - buy 4 get one free!)
So as the countdown to the celebrations begins, here is a list of DIG's top five recommendations for seasonal gifts:
5: A DIG Gift Certificate
For the person who is just too persnickety to buy for!
4: A Living Holiday Tree
The gift that keeps giving-these are hands down better value than cut trees.
For an indoor vertical garden year-round (and the plants to go in them, of course!)
2: A Hanging Terrarium
Innovative and modern - desert or lush - create your own imaginarium.
