Have you checked out our Gift Shop lately?

We’ve added some unique new items to our Gift Shop over the last few weeks and wanted to share them with you. With wedding and barbeque season in full-force, we’ve got some great gift ideas you won’t find anywhere else!

The other day, I introduced you to our one-of-a-kind jewelry items (if you missed that post, check it out by clicking here) created especially for Wellfield by Stefanie Buysse of Art + Elements in Mishawaka.

Those of you who attended our Summer Evening in the Gardens dinner were lucky enough to receive a preview of our new Wellfield’s Bounty Culinary line: our Herb Salt Blend! We have plenty of them for sale now; pick up a jar for your next cookout, or to add a special enhancement to any meal.

Our library has been steadily growing since this spring. We’ve got a nice selection of Dover Little Activity Books, and we have had a hard time keeping them in stock! Priced as low as $1.50, these pocket-sized activity books are packed with hours of fun activities. They’ve got stickers, coloring books, mazes and even a make-your-own flower bouquet book. They are great for that summer road trip! And if you want something a little more substantial, my favorite new title is the “Farmer’s Market Create and Play” book, which has tons of stickers and punch-outs that allow your child to create their own farm and market. It’s really cool!

If you’re looking for a unique title for the foodie in your life, think about picking up a copy of “The Wildcrafted Cocktail” by Ellen Zachos or “Midwest Foraging” by Lisa M. Rose. Thinking about saving seeds from your garden this year? We’ve got the “Complete Guide to Saving Seeds” by Cheryl Moore-Gough and Robert E Gough.

Our new story boards are in, and the new selection is “Shh! We Have a Plan” by Chris Haughton. Once you “read” the story while you walk the Gardens, take a copy home to enjoy again and again. And if you enjoyed our first story, “Kite Day, a Bear and Mole Story” by Will Hillenbrand, we’ve still got a couple copies of that one available, too.

And of course, we’ve got our Wellfield-exclusive line of bath and body products from Forever Clean Soap Works in Niles: Lotions, soaps, sugar scrubs and lip balms. All the products contain botanicals, honey and beeswax from Wellfield.

This is just a sampling of what we’ve got in stock now. Stop in our Visitor’s Cottage during your next visit, enjoy the a/c and see what fun gifts you can find for a friend…or for yourself!

See you at the Gardens!
