Our Favorite Hostess Gifts

The holidays are around the corner and like it or not, it’s party season! A small gift is a nice way to show appreciation to your host. While a bottle of wine or a six-pack of beer may do just fine, we’ve come up with some thoughtful ideas from our gift shop to set you apart:

-Dishtowels: Funny, holiday-themed or just plain cute, we have loads of choices to suit your host.
-Soaps & Lotions: Chose from luscious botanical or holiday scents as a lovely gift for the home.
-Idaho Woods playing cards: We love these cute cards because they’re perfect for traveling, and make a great activity for many ages.
-Fresh flowers: Flowers are perfect for those hosts you don’t know well or for someone who ‘has it all’. We have pre-made mixed bouquets or you can call our Flower Market ahead of time to have something arranged for you 208-354-8816 ext. 4020.
– Live plants: Trendy air plants and succulents are different and are easy to care for. Seasonal live holiday plants such as mini pines, poinsettias and Christmas cactus will be arriving around Thanksgiving.
-Candles: Scented or not, the warming glow of a beautiful candle will be appreciated.
-Cocktail napkins: We have a fantastic variety of sassy or serious ones for the host.

November Checklist

Even though our recent temperatures make it feel more like January, there still may be time to complete one or more of these late-season tasks:

• Plant Indoor Bulbs: The outside temperatures won’t foil this plan! November is an excellent time to start paperwhites and amaryllis indoors for holiday gift-giving or for your own enjoyment. Paperwhites take 4-6 weeks to bloom and amaryllis can take 6-12 weeks.
• Spread Wildflower and Grass Seed: Seed will lay dormant until next spring.
All remaining seed is now 50% off.
• Mow, fertilize and protect your lawn: A shorter final cut will reduce the amount of raking next spring. Spread fall fertilizer (we love Espoma ™ organic) and a granular rodent repellant like Molemax™ if voles are a problem in your area.
• Hang and fill bird feeders: We carry a variety of bird feeders and seed to attract a range of wild birds. Feeders placed near trees and shrubs will encourage more visiting birds since they like the protection of nearby branches.
