In that spirit, we’ve found a few really neat trees from Harry & David that will stay with them for a long time.

Bonsai Trees, Christmas Trees, & Wreaths from Harry & David

miyagi bonsai treeWine Grape Bonsai Tree: I was really into the idea of bonsai trees as a kid. This was the mid-80’s, so maybe Mr. Miyagi was my inspiration. In any event, a number of my friends who were kids back then are now in the stage of their lives where they are really into wine. (And finally capable of taking care of other living things)

So, instead of bringing a fancy bottle of wine to their house, why not consider giving them something really special in that spirit: a wine grape bonsai tree that produces wine quality grapes in the summer! Grown out at the wine grape-friendly climate of Harry & David headquarters in Southern Oregon, this little tree would look great in a bright spot in any home.

You don’t have to be a master gardener to take care of it, but it’s probably more appropriate for someone who has a track record of watering their house plants, or even a green thumb outdoors.

Tree & Plant Gift Ideas from Harry & David

Blood Orange Patio Tree: These little patio trees are about 2 feet tall, and produce miniature blood oranges. These special fruits are named for their dark, red flesh, and are sweet and tangy, with a bit of a raspberry flavor. They can actually be eaten right off the branch, or added to a fruit salad.

While most people might find a sunny spot inside to put them, this miniature blood orange tree would be great in a sun room or on the right patio. Did you know that cool nights when the temperature drops are the reason for the blood orange’s unique color? The color comes from a pigment called  “anthocyanin,” which also makes these oranges rich in antioxidants.

Another Bonsai Tree Gift Idea

California Redwood Bonsai Tree – A redwood bonsai tree? Talk about an oxymoron, right? Kind of like “jumbo shrimp,” or “original copy” this is a mini version of the world’s tallest trees. Well, you certainly can’t fit one of the actual redwood trees into your living room. You might have high ceilings, but probably not the 350 feet that these trees grow to.

Like children in the Philadelphia school system, these guys don’t have much more potential for growth than what you see already. This makes them a great addition to a table or windowsill. The best part is that 10% of the sale price will go to the Redwood Forest Foundation.
