Flowers are a classic “thinking-of-you” gift, whether it’s to commemorate a special occasion or to thank a host for a summertime party invitation. Elevate the simple gift of flowers with a charming upcycled vase and handcrafted tag. Gathering flowers from your yard and a few items from around the house makes it easy and affordable to make friends and family smile.
