2007 Orchid Gift Ideas

Guest Author - Susan Taylor

A new and different vendor, Novica attracted my interest this year. They are an internet based store which provides a storefront for artisans around the world direct to the public. They have a number of orchid-related items for sale.

Celebrate Orchids has one of the best collections of items with an orchid theme that I’ve ever seen. I particularly like the tapestry tote bags which come in Cattleya, Phalaenopsis, Paphiopedilum, and a Collage tote of different types of orchids. Their denim shirts, t-shirts and sweatshirts are also of very nice quality for the money. If there is something that you don’t see, give Barbara a call or send her an email and she’ll see if she can find it for you.

Amazon.com has an increasing list of items with an orchid theme. The best of them are under Jewelry and Watches in my opinion, especially a series of watches with orchids on the face by Images by ChrisC. At $21.95 these will be a great gift. They also have a lovely set of napkin rings with Cattleyas on them which would dress up any table. In order to see other items at Amazon, just use the Search feature and choose “Amazon.com” for the first option and “Orchid, orchid” for the second. Remember that you will get a much greater list of items, some of which may not actually be orchid related.

For the finest orchid clothing on the web, I still like Milo’s Bali Orchids. Their products are beautifully made of really nice fabric. He has a new line of Swarovski crystal beaded necklace shirts and dresses which are spectacular. Another new item I noted was the addition of new shirts for men in the Vanda and Dendrobium collections. Be sure to order early for delivery before the holiday season. For more traditional items, see Lava Hut Clothing in Hawaii for men’s shirts, women’s dresses and children’s clothing in a variety of fabrics. Choose the swatches in the page to see the pricing for the items shown.

For books, calendars and orchid information, there’s nothing like the American Orchid Society> site. They offer a yearly calendar which is always composed of exceptional photographs of award-winning orchids and this year they are donating $2 of each calendar for conservation. The organization has partnered with Amazon.com and Orchid Books of Canada to provide you with the best in orchid books and provide a donation to the society. A series of book reviews is very helpful to determine which books are the best for your orchid lover. And last, but not least, the AOS Handbooks are available at the site. These are a must for every beginner orchid grower. A really spectacular gift would be a membership in the AOS which includes a 12-month subscription to their award-winning Orchids magazine.
