GMG's Friday Find: Organic, Eco-Chic Planters for Holiday Gift Giving

Presents!  We love to give them, and let's be honest, we love to receive them.  Looking for the perfect holiday gift for your gardening friends? NativeCast has the perfect gift for everyone on your shopping list. And best of all, each product is individually hand-cast and comes complete with its own story.

Ricky Giacco, founder and visionary of NativeCast, developed a unique green concrete made of recycled materials and locally sourced seashells, pine cones and needles.  This concrete is used to cast containers from organic shapes, like mushroom board and crab apple bark.

Who's on your buying list?  Kids, of course, and they will love any shape from NativeCast's "Cast Your Own Line."  A fun project to tackle on their own or with parents on a winter day, the kits come complete with dirt and concrete in an array of colors.  This star-shaped planter will make your kids shine with pride, and they'll learn about plant care as a bonus. Young adults will love these too; they're the perfect size for a dorm room or bedroom.

Gardeners love to highlight a show-stopping container in their garden, deck or patio as a focal point.  The NativeCast Wood Trough is just the ticket.  Recently selected as one of the best new products by This Old House you can see why.  This trough is cast from salvaged mushroom board and weighs only 10 pounds, so it's easy to move around any outdoor living space. A very eco-chic gift that will beautifully patina over the years, this trough is a perfect gift for that someone special on your list.

For the nature enthusiast on your gift-giving list consider the NativeCast Crab Apple planter.  A very old tree that had to be removed will live on forever in this unique design.  This planter is ideal for an office desk or small table standing just 6.5" tall.  The organic texture and imperfections tie in beautifully with the light gray hue that will compliment any decor. It's almost impossible not to think of nature when viewing this planter.

Thanks to a wide-array of modern, minimalistic garden containers for sale on NativeCast's e-commerce website, one-stop shopping is just a click away.  Wouldn't you love to gift one of these, or better yet, find one under your tree?  Let us know what you think of  NativeCast's naturalistic creations.  Happy Holiday shopping!
