We always seem to find bundles of wilted, forgotten herbs at the bottom of our crisper drawer. Save that basil and exercise your green thumb at the same time with easy-to-use garden jar herb kits. Whenever you need a sprinkling of the good stuff, you’ll have your own to snip from.
Garden Jar Herb Kit
This kit is ready for some quality time outdoors. It includes a trowel, hand-forged in Holland to last through many a repotting, and gloves constructed from extra-tough bamboo fabric. Both come in a canvas utility pouch so they’ll never be far from one another—or your azaleas.
The Essential Garden Kit
These clever tips will help you keep every nook and cranny in your kitchen clean-as-can-be.
"I like how laundry has a clear beginning, middle, and end. And that end involves a tidy pile of clothes that you get to wear again! It’s one of the few household tasks that you can pick up at different stages and not have it rule your day. Laundry is predictable (when done properly). Doing laundry doesn’t make you sweat. You can fold laundry and have a meaningful conversation. Laundry allows you to bring order and neatness to the messiness of your life. Laundry smells good. Laundry involves warm, fluffy fabrics. What’s not to love?"
Co-Founder & CEO
"This is the laundry basket in our kids' room. They love it because they can toss clothes from the other end of the room into it, and it easily rolls into the kitchen when it’s time to do their laundry."
Elevated Laundry Basket
"I have dozens of these, layered between sweaters, strung on hangers, and nestled in drawers."
Organic Lavender Linen Sachets (Set of 2)
"I consider this a household essential—a rack is great for hanging shirts, sweaters, and table linens to dry. And this multitasker can double as a slim perch for towels if you don't have hooks in your bathroom."
Steel & Wood Linen Rack
Do Try This at Home
Steel & Wood Leaning Ladder, $50–$80
It's a home base for just about anything an alcove could ask for: blankets and throws in the living room, towels in the bathroom, or scarves and ties in the bedroom.
Flameless Wax Candles, $110–$168
Fuss-free mood lighting, at your service: Pop in a couple of batteries and turn on the candles—they’ll cast their glow for hours, and flicker just like the real thing. You can even time them so they’ll shut off automatically.
Original V60 Dripper, $26–$60
Create a space you’ll want to wake up to, with freshly ground beans, your favorite mug, and this graceful streamlined brewer at the ready. Game-changing curved ridges inside mean the coffee flows more smoothly (and give filters a little extra grip, too).
Nordic Sheepskin, $195
Tossed over a chair or snuggled up underfoot, this cuddly, fleecy shearling wonder will add just-right warmth and texture to any nook.
Our love of books often extends beyond the confines of our bookshelves. This pair of hand-turned, solid maple bookends in a subtle whitewash finish is just the thing to hold everything from poetry to prose in place.
Handturned Arched Black & Maple Book Ends
On one side, you’ve got a ledge that doubles as a cookbook (and tablet) stand. On the other, there are 13 slots, ready to hold knives, a honing steel, and a pair of scissors. A swivel base lets you flip between recipes and the tools you need in an instant.

Now, Let's Get To It
These sprightly-hued brush and dustpan sets give a colorful new meaning to spring cleaning. They're made of the highest quality beechwood, with densely-packed horsehair bristles to catch every dust bunny.
Vintage-Inspired French Hanging Dustpan & Brush Set
This Japanese-designed rack sticks right to the side of your fridge (or screws into any wall) to make a pretty resting spot for all those odds and ends. Use the shelves to store anything from spices to a jar of paper clips, and hang utensils, oven mitts, and bottle openers from the hooks.
Steel & Wood Magnetic Refrigerator Rack
Made from durable ceramic, these multipurpose canisters are each topped with snug-fitting wooden lids and can be mixed and matched as you please. The slotted option will keep utensils at the ready, and they even come with a little planter insert that pops in and out for easy cleaning.
Modular Ceramic Countertop Set
Our resident Genius, Kristen Miglore, shares a quick organizing trick:
Kristen Miglore, Creative Director, Genius
"To my fellow not-so-handy people: Screwing a magnetic knife-grabber into the wall by hand takes five minutes, and there’s no better (or better-looking) way to free up drawers and counters and keep knives sharp, safe, and ready to get to business. (When I recently moved, it was the first thing I did to get my kitchen humming again.)"
Reclaimed Walnut Knife Grabber, $90–$110
One of the best ways to make a kitchen feel organized is to keep the counter space as free as possible—and one of the easiest ways to do that is with a knife rack. This magnetic version replaces the need for a large knife block.

Curious about floral design? Or are you already a flower aficionado, but looking to hone your craft? Either way, this workshop-in-a-box will soon have you arranging away—letting you practice with your own set of clippers, netting, and more.
Floral Arranging Workshop Gift Box
A footed vase gives any floral arrangement, simple or wild, a great platform. It can also serve as a catchall for other accessories you’d like to toss in. Use the small vase on a side table or as a centerpiece; the large one will make a grander statement.
Copper Footed Vase
We love dried flowers for their less-conventional charm—not to mention how long-lasting they are. This set presents you with one of Farmhouse Pottery’s beautiful vases, plus a dried floral arrangement that makes the perfect enduring gift.
