1. Gathering Basket
We love this rustic wood and metal wire basket, which looks at home on a countryside farm just as much as your kitchen counter.
Beautifully boxed like candy truffles, these seed bon bons made with clay and organic compost are the perfect surprise for a garden-loving friend. We're fans of the Italian Herb selection with basil and thyme, and the Grilling Herb Garden with oregano and cumin would be perfect for outdoor entertaining.
Marrying the best of French and Japanese craftsmanship, these herb shears came about from a collaboration between chef Michel Bras and Shun knives to effectively and beautifully handle tasks like cutting herbs.
Growing your own fruits, vegetables and herbs can make a big difference in your cooking. Whether you tend to a backyard garden or snip herbs from a windowsill planter, even small touches of home-grown ingredients can bring freshness and flavor to your dishes.
