Constructed of high-quality stainless steel in eye-catching colors, these eco-friendly, lightweight bottles are non-leaching and toxin-free. A wide mouth allows for easy cleaning or the addition of ice cubes. Find them at swellbottle.com.

GARDENING INDOORS Award-winning gardener Tovah Martin takes readers on a journey, showing them how to cultivate nearly every imaginable type of houseplant in The Unexpected Houseplant, 220 Extraordinary Choices for Every Spot in Your Home (Timber Press). The book guides readers through the process of choosing and maintaining indoor plants for various situations, from succulents in the kitchen, to small trees growing bedside.
UNDER GLASS Air plants, the latest horticulture craze, have gone to the birds—literally, in this case. Sculptor Jennifer Schinzing created these hand-blown glass vessels she calls Terrara-Birds. Each varies slightly in size and shape, measuring approximately 5" by 5," and comes in a gift box with air plants and a care sheet. Available through jenniferschinzing.com.
