WILLIAMSBURG® provides a variety of gift solutions for the gardener in your family

WILLIAMSBURG garden products will make the holidays even brighter for friends and loved ones with a passion for nature. Inspired by British colonists more than 225 years ago, these botanical products will enhance the home and garden.

The unique Bird Bottle, based on an original excavated from the James Geddy House, is a ceramic container that attaches to any home or outbuilding and allows small birds to nest. Mounting and maintenance instructions come with each Bird Bottle.

During the 18th century, animal-shaped tureens often were used for centerpieces on tabletops. Virginia Metalcrafters has reproduced some of these vessels from the collections of Colonial Williamsburg to create garden ornaments for the home. The Garden Quail is made of cast iron with a verdigris finish. Available in medium and large sizes, the Garden Quail can be used indoors and out.

Bring the beauty of nature to your table with the Dogwood Trivet. This beautiful and functional brass trivet is 8 inches in diameter and will protect fine furniture from hot casserole dishes or serve as a decorative plant coaster.

The Wrought Iron Apple Wreath will help create the all-natural decorations long associated with Colonial Williamsburg. A circle of hand-wrought iron with 11 rings holds apples, pears, pomander oranges or any combination of fruits and greenery you prefer. The Wrought Iron Apple Wreath is not just for the holidays; it can be changed to reflect the varying seasons.

The Tiered Wall Basket provides limitless possibilities for home decorating. The sturdy iron wire basket can hold favorite flowers or vegetables for a container garden on your porch or sunroom, or provide out-of-the-way storage for sundries. Featuring a distressed brown/black finish, the Tiered Wall Basket is ready to fill and hang.

“The Gardens of Colonial Williamsburg” shows how a colonial-style garden grows. This popular book with 152 color photographs examines 20 gardens in Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area.
