Searching for a Graduation Present?It's that time of year for youth to take a step into adulthood when they graduate High School and move off to College. Ben's Garden offers a wide selection of graduation gifts for the student. And if your child is graduating from Kindergarten, Grade School, etc., Ben's Garden also carries gifts for their teacher too!
I recently had the pleasure of reviewing a desk set from Ben's Garden. Soon as I opened the box I knew that I was in for a treat. As I pushed back the packing peanuts a gorgeous ribbon wrapped package awaited me.
The package was beautifully wrapped in a unique butterfly gift wrap with the signature Ben's Garden green ribbon. To tell you the truth, I tried my hardest to preserve the gift wrap because it was just that pretty. It will certainly be used on a future craft project or gift from yours truly.
Once I opened the package there were 2 packages of note pads and a lovely decopaged paperweight. The high quality notepads had funny sayings that made me chuckle as I jotted down my grocery list and daily errands on them. I have plenty of paperweights laying around my house, but I have to say that the decopaged Ben's Garden one is by far the most exquisite. You can see the details in the craftsmanship of the paper weight and it became more of an accessory to my office rather than another heavy object to hold my papers in place.
If you are looking for a gift for a special person in your life or just want to indulge in something nice for yourself I would certainly recommend browsing the selection of products at Ben's Garden. Not only will it be a handcrafted gift made by century old artisan techniques, but it will be a gift to remember for you the recipient.
