The December holidays are a perfect time to treat the loved ones on your list to botanically inspired gifts. For those interested in botany or herbalism, these gifts will encourage the learning journey, offer up inspiration, and encourage a bit of rest and relaxation in this busy month. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite botanical resources and herbal creations below!

Botanically Inspired Gifts for the Holidays

Easy Handmade Herbal Blends

For those of you who enjoy making gifts, herbal tea and spice blends are easy to make, satisfying to give, and a delight to receive.

For tea drinkers who enjoy settling in with a mug of hot tea, you may find inspiration in 4 Herbal Teas for Autumn and Winter or Teas for Cold & Flu Season. An herbal tea blend (or an assortment of blends!) is a lovely gift when paired with a tea infuser and a beautiful mug from a local potter. A favorite of ours at the Herbal Academy is our Nourishing Weedy Tea blend.
