So why is Jackson and Perkins considered THE source for holiday gifts? It’s because we work all year long to create a unique line of gifts that are more than just pretty presents—they immediately become an important (and beautiful!) part of the home décor! Many of the gifts we’ve put together this year incorporate the new color of the season (which just happens to be Radiant Orchid, an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones), and all are inspired by nature.
The holidays should be fun and joyful—spending time with friends and family, reveling in that special magic that can only be found this time of year, and getting to act like a kid again! And when you’re doing your shopping, it should be just as much fun, as well as quick and easy. You want gifts that are beautiful, elegant, and charming, right? Essentially, you are looking for something perfect for each person, no matter their age, who they are, or where they live. And that’s exactly why I think you’ll love shopping with Jackson and Perkins!
We have something for everyone and for every budget, and I am proud to say that we go out of our way to ensure your shopping experience is just as wonderful as the gifts you’re sending! Not only are all of our gifts gorgeous and created from only the highest-quality components possible, but we also have Personal Gift Advisors standing by, ready to help you in any way they can.
Some of our most popular gifts, year after year, are our live decorated trees. Each one arrives already decorated (including lights!) and ready to charm. All the recipient has to do is fluff the branches and plug it in—an instant holiday decoration that will light up all those festive gathers! But it’s not just the convenience that makes them so treasured. Everyone who receives one falls in love with the fragrance of the tree itself as well as the beautiful, quality ornaments and the wonderful containers in which they’re planted. In fact, our customers like them so much, many are starting a new family tradition and getting one each year. And not only that, but most people are transplanting them into their yards once the holidays are over. (The unfrosted ones, that is. We don’t recommend trying to transplant the frosted trees, as they don’t tend to fare too well outdoors.) Don’t you agree that there’s just something irresistible about a live tree adorned with sparkling lights and shiny ornaments?
Of course, we can’t forget about our Amaryllis! It’s simple—if you want an Amaryllis, you go to Jackson and Perkins. We pride ourselves on offering only the most beautiful varieties available and creating gifts that are absolutely stunning! We make sure the bulbs are the highest quality, ensuring they’ll grow quickly and produce loads of huge blooms that will bring fantastic color to any room for weeks at a time. And the containers (most are ceramic, metal, or glass) are carefully chosen to beautifully complement the different blooms.
Amaryllis are so much fun to grow, too, even for the kids, who usually want to measure their daily growth. Actually, if you want a really neat activity that the entire family can get in on, give an Amaryllis to each of the kids (even if they’re grown and living half-way around the world!) and have a competition to see whose grows the fastest! Post the daily pictures on Facebook or your other social media site of choice, and it becomes a fun, interactive family event and a great way to make lasting memories.
Another wonderful way to start or continue a holiday tradition is by using evergreens to decorate your home. For years, we’ve carried a gorgeous line of fresh-cut, handmade evergreen arrangements: wreaths, garlands, swags, basket centerpieces, and more recently, kissing balls (the new mistletoe!). These beautiful accents are fresh and fragrant, bringing the glory of the forest to your home. Place a wreath on the front door to greet your guests, wrap a festive garland around the banister, or hang a kissing ball in the living room to add a bit of extra fun to those parties. Nothing says “Happy holidays!” like a real evergreen decoration!
I hope you’re anticipating the next couple of months as much as we are! Have a look through our gifts, and we’ll gladly help you make it the best one yet!
