My gardening Christmas list, if it’s not too late

I know it’s late, Christmas is only a couple days away, but I’ll be accepting Christmas gifts late in to the new year. I never got anything off of last year’s list, so that’s all still out there for the gifting. (Above is the “Meat Seat” not in production, unfortunately.)

I don’t need another vloerkleed (doormat in Nederlands), but this multi-season one I would accept.
A hose nozzle I can get behind, especially for scaring away squirrels.
They may not get the significance, but I would.
Tolerable garden art. Only $49.99.


This could be the year I actually start a bonsai.
I don’t want chickens. I don’t want a chicken coop. But if I did, I’d want this one.
I have just the spot for this coat rack. A little bit pricey though, at €120-€150 per branch.
I’ll get rid of my three-year-old grill if I got this one for Christmas, or any fireplace from this company.


Not a garden or outdoor project but I’d take these clever corner frames none-the-less.
These planter tables are nice. I’d find room for them.
Birds need front porch lights too.


Bamboo coasters satisfy my typographic propensities.


I love this disappearing chair. I can picture a whole dining room set including table…
I’m sure I could rig up this planter system, but why bother if one of you will buy it for me.


Did you see my post on cemetery garden plots? If I die before I design my own, I’ll take one of these. No rush.
It’s called a Schizo Vase. Perfect for me.
I had asked for something like this last year and no one came through. I’m still waiting.
Cool, huh? A cactus I won’t kill. Only £260.00. Plus shipping.
If you can’t afford to get me a whole grandfather clock, I’d take this portion. Not for outdoors, but still cool.
I’d take the orange, or lime chair, please. Beats the plastic Adirondack chairs I have now.
This would accentuate any yard or garden, and drive people batty.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

  1. Awesome wish list! I've seen the bird house before – it's solar-powered, very cool. Love the coat rack and the corner frames too. There are some very clever people out there :)Merry Christmas, Jim – Rox.

  6. Ryan,The chair is only a slight $925. I assume shipping is extra. The link to the chair is: http://www.bobbyberkhome.com/Shop/Brand/linvin?Brand=267
