Al’s Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday gift-giving season is upon us. Al’s Garden & Home has unique and useful gifts for everyone on your list. Whether your family, friends, or co-workers are outdoor enthusiasts or ones that love making their house a home, we are the only stop you’ll need to make to complete your shopping list.
For the Outdoor Gardener
Hellebores are beautiful winter blooming perennials with an assortment of flower colors plus evergreen foliage for a shady garden or container. Flowers remain on the plant from bloom time until early spring. Deep green or variegated foliage stays as a garden filler for the rest of the year. Heucheras are gorgeous winter color spots for a perennial garden or winter plant containers. The wide range of evergreen foliage colors add interest and texture when mixed with winter blooming Pansies and the icy texture of Dusty Miller. You will find ranges of gardening tools, gardening gloves, and beautiful containers/pottery so the gardener in your life can continue their passion throughout the year.
Indoor Gardener
houseplants gift guide
Orchids may be elegant and exotic but are an easy-care blooming plant for that person who is tricky to buy for. The stately flowers will bloom for weeks during the holidays in a brightly lit area.
Start a heritage plant in your family with this long-lived blooming plant, the Christmas Cactus. Plant owners say they have had a Christmas Cactus in their family for years, enjoying the flowers, giving cuttings to each other, and even passing the plant to the next generation’s caretaker. A legacy plant to bring back memories shared time with family and friends.
Anthuriums have an amazing assortment of unique and colorful flowers. A perfect reminder of a tropical vacation all those months ago. Anthuriums bloom almost continually with bright light, No direct sun. Keep soil a little moist in between waterings.
grown by al's poinsettias
Poinsettia planters are a great gift for the host/hostess of holiday gatherings. A welcome gift that brings immediate color and holiday cheer to a table or shelf.
Norfolk Island Pine is a tropical Christmas tree look-a-like.  Add a pretty Christmas container, set of LED lights and decorative mister. Cute to have a little Christmas tree among your houseplant collection. Bright light, mist often and keep the soil a bit moist in between waterings.
Amaryllis are great plants for every skill level. Give them a budded plant, bulbs, or a complete DIY boxed set. It’s a rewarding past time to watch the stem grow longer every day and for each flower to fully open. Bright light and keep the soil a bit moist in between waterings.
Tropical or Succulent Plant Gift Set is the right gift to get for the novice indoor gardener. Select an easy-care plant from Al’s Garden & Home’s assortment and gather a pretty container, watering can, and plant stand. Your gift is ready to be put on display as soon as it’s opened.
Gift for friends, family, and everyone in between
gourmet food
For the foodie or cook in your life, consider gourmet food treats such as jams, mustards, or a fabulous cookbook. Do they have a sweet tooth? Decadent hot chocolate with unique stirrers and a mug to enjoy this tasty treat will make a much-appreciated gift.
jewelry and handbags
Your besties would love fashionable Scout bracelets or a useful, beautiful clutch wristlet for those evenings out and about. How about a fashionable sweater or great pair of jeans? Our selection of women’s apparel will excite the fashionista on your list.
 Holiday-themed tea towels, ornaments, food specialty box, or a holiday-scented candle would put a smile on their face. For the last-minute gift or the one that has everything, consider a cozy throw or neck wrap to warm up the soul. Some great stocking stuffer ideas are endless at Al’s.

    This is a question I have for Al’s! I live in Vancouver British Columbia and was wondering if you do any kind of Christmas Gift Baskets? My family all live in Woodburn, St. Paul area and if you do baskets then I have my Christmas shopping complete and someone would even come and pick up the 6 that I need. Thank you for your help.
