The holiday season is upon us, and with WPS Garden of Lights beginning soon, what better place to find unique holiday gifts than at our WPS Trellis Gift Shop! Our gift shop provides a variety of seasonal gifts, artwork, gardening tools as well as decorations to inspire and refresh you and your home. We’re shifting into the winter holiday season and the gift-giving season is kicking into full gear!
Our WPS Trellis Gift shop is operated by Patti Magee Hitzler, who has worked with the Garden for eight years. She organizes, prioritizes and designs the layout of the gift shop, ultimately selecting the various items available for visitors to the Garden to peruse and purchase at their leisure! Patti notes, “I enjoy managing the gift shop at the Garden… there isn’t a more beautiful place to work in Green Bay!”
Our shop offers a wide variety of gardening tools and nature-inspired items like:
- Gardening tools made in the USA, gloves, plant markers and soil knives
- Garden stakes, ornaments and chimes
- Gardening and nature books
- Green Bay Botanical Garden logo items including jigsaw puzzles, mugs, ornaments and more
- Unique umbrellas, totes, handbags, mittens and hats
- Locally handcrafted art including photography, hand-painted glass, silverware garden art, handmade soaps and birdhouses
- Unique home and holiday décor such as wall art, snowman figurines and ornaments
- And more!
Since we are getting ever closer to WPS Garden of Lights, here are some new and returning holiday items that are now available in the gift shop throughout November and December:
We’re also bringing back some customer-favorites like our forever popular vintage Christmas lightbulb necklaces!
If you’re looking for an incredibly unique gift this year, consider giving the gift of membership, too! A year-long Garden membership is a wonderful way to show your love and appreciation, and a membership has a variety of perks including free daily admission, discounts for special events, classes and more. All Garden Members receive a 10% discount on all items in the gift shop. Plus, if you buy a membership by December 14 this year, you’ll receive 2 free adult walking tickets to this year’s WPS Garden of Lights… that’s a $20 gift!
