A Local Gift Idea

I know it is late for a Christmas gift idea, but I was late in finding out about this one.

Deciding to shop local for some last-minute gifts, I went into Dandelion Home and Garden, a newly opened, little gift and plant store in the Hillcrest neighborhood of Little Rock, Arkansas. For the next hour, I chatted with the owner, Susan, and learned all about “air succulents” and her habit of collecting antiques.

In the Dandelion retail store, I perused their vase and container selection, picked one, and then Susan made an arrangement that is unusual, eco-friendly, and a good conversation-starting gift for anyone, no matter their age or gender. And the coolest part: it is alive, and you can’t kill it. Or it would be really, really hard, at least. Succulents are little miracles that I don’t quite understand but I am not questioning, either; just enjoying.

So, if you are still in need of a Christmas gift and are stumped, this may be the solution.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!
