Does a special lady in your life have a green thumb? How about a love of birds? With plenty of hand-crafted and artisanal gifts to choose from, you’re bound to find something that says ‘thank you’ to the most important women in your world.

Hummingbird Garden Weathervane

A coveted sight in every backyard, this hovering hummingbird, feeding in mid-flight, is ready to adorn your outdoor space. Crafted with intricate details, like it’s suspended flight stance, delicate wings, beak, and vibrant tail feathers, the handcrafted, pure copper weathervane captures the beauty of a hummingbird gracefully drawing nectar from the flowers.

Verde Fly-Thru Bird Feeder

Get ready to add some flair to your garden with our Fly-Thru™ bird feeder. This feeder was designed in conjunction with talented local artisans and bird aficionados, ensuring it’s a hassle-free experience for you and your feathered friends. The large perches on either side allow easy access to seed, while the eye-catching green hue and copper accents make a statement in the garden. For more color, get the Triple Fly-Thru feeder in Azure, Verde and Mojave.

Be Still My Heart Bird Feeder

Love is in the air when you give this ruby red, heart-shaped bird feeder as a gift. The patented Fly-Thru ™ design entices birds to stay awhile perched at the center, or simply dine-and-dash, taking their seed back to the nest. An easy-fill panel and see-through plexiglass allows you to change up the seed easily, keeping the birds coming back. Or if hearts aren’t your thing, tell her you’re Over The Moon to know her with this bird feeder instead.

Tranquil Meditating Buddha Bird Baths

Looking for a gift that's a true conversation starter? Check out our Tranquil Meditating Buddha Bird Baths. These aren't just bird baths - they're a piece of handcrafted art for any garden. Made with love by American artisans, each birdbath features a meditating Buddha, promising to bring a touch of peace to any outdoor space or garden. Choose from two styles: one with a cleverly designed collapsible pedestal stand, and the other perched on a sturdy garden pole. Both are made from high-quality copper and cast aluminum, so they're not only beautiful but durable too. Perfect for that friend who loves their garden almost as much as their zen moments!

Copper Boot Trays

These multi-purpose boot trays are as versatile as they are attractive! The classic design compliments all décor while the raised lip keeps the mess inside the tray. Use it in the entryway or mudroom for shoes, boots and umbrellas. Better yet, the tray also doubles as an attractive home for potted plants or as a neat, no-mess zone for pet bowls! Available in Classic, Medallions or Squares styles.
