Midwest Seed Bombs
Here's a lovely stocking stuffer for the gardener in your life, or even someone who's not really a gardener but who loves plants. Etsy seller VisuaLingual offers these "seed bombs", consisting of a "bird-, bee- and butterfly-friendly wildflower mixture" that allows you to commit random acts of gardening. See the description for the entire list of seeds in each packet, which were chosen because they are native to Midwest. And many of the seeds are native to most of North America, which means that these make a lovely gift no matter where the recipient lives.
(On an entirely different note, VisuaLingual also offers these wonderful Ohio River coasters, in green and several other colors. I was born in Cleveland myself and still have relatives in Ohio, so I'm partial to these, but they're clever no matter where you come from!)
[Note: I first came across these seed bombs on the Design Public blog.]
