Specimen boxes can evoke natural settings. A selection of sea-worn clamshells or pressed leaves makes a simple, beautiful display. Sea glass, driftwood, a vintage postcard, and a map can re-create a journey to coastal Maine.
For your favorite horticulturist, choose a sturdy basket that can have a long life of service in the garden. We decorated ours using a palette of yellows and oranges, inspired by the early-blooming daffodils.
