Ben's Garden: Desk Set #Giveaway

Sponsored Ben's Garden Review and Giveaway

It's that time of year when we're thinking of what kind of gifts to select for the teachers, to thank them for all they put into our children during the school year.  I recently came across Ben's Garden, and it was the first I'd heard of them. It looks like I'm way behind times on this one, because a lot of people are raving about the items, including those on the famous A-lists. Never mind that I'm (fashionably) late to the party... I'm here!! I'm here!! And boy, do they have some really nice selections to sort through; some I'm sure the teachers would love to have as nice thank-you gifts! 

The Story of Ben's Garden

It all started back in 1992, when Ben Busko was just 8-years-old, selling d├ęcoupage inspired by his garden. Armed with a paint brush, Ben developed his design sensibility and technique piece by piece using imagery, a colorful palette, and words in entirely new ways...and so, BEN’S GARDEN was born.

Ben’s charming designs are individually handcrafted entirely by hand in New York City. His decoupage pieces are all signed. What began as Ben’s passion for sharing his colorful and thoughtful world transformed into opportunities for his customers to share a bit about themselves, surround themselves with things they love, and to share a bit wit and an appreciation for fashion. Each piece tells a story. His special handmade pieces mean something to the person who buys them and it tells their own story. It all wonderfully results in turning a house into a home!

Today you can discover Ben’s refreshing & captivating collection of unique home, garden, gift and charm in the celebrated Ben’s Garden shops; a very select group of exclusive and well curated boutiques in New York, more than 800 boutiques across the United States, and internationally in every time zone and every continent. Ben Busko has demonstrated his decoupage technique to Martha Stewart on her Television show, had one of his designs selected as an Oprah “ O –List Must Have” product, and his designs have been featured in a number of prominent periodicals including House Beautiful, In Style and Architectural Digest. You can reach Ben’s Garden at or calling 1-888-922-7646.

Searching for a Graduation Present?

Ben's Garden Desk Set Giveaway

It's that time of year for youth to take a step into adulthood when they graduate High School and move off to College. Ben's Garden offers a wide selection of graduation gifts for the student. And if your child is graduating from Kindergarten, Grade School, etc., Ben's Garden also carries gifts for their teacher too!

Be Who You Are Crystal Paperweight
sold here from Ben's Garden
These are also great for teacher gifts. We gave this paperweight to my son's assistant teacher as a going away present at the end of the year, and she just loved it!! It's nice and heavy and a smooth, heavy crystal that feels good in your hands. And it's got the great Dr. Suess saying on it. :) It has a nice felted back so it will not scratch any surface where you place it.

The paperweight retails for $34.00 at Ben's Garden and is sure to last for years to come.

This All the Fun Scribble Notepads sold at Ben's Garden here
has a nice bright color and very heavy, high quality paper

The All the Fun Scribble Notepads are made of a high quality, heavy paper that is bright, fun, and festive. Just the right size for scribbling notes, the saying on the top says, 'If you obey all of the rules, you miss all the fun.'  Such a cute, fun saying, and also a great gift idea!!

Hilarious Scribble Notepaper from Ben's Garden is sold here.
The final product in the giveaway is hilarious to me because I can so relate!! The top of the heavy notepaper says, 'I'm afraid my train of thought has left the station.' That's so me if I don't write a list!! BUT not to worry, because with this gorgeous pad of paper (Scribble Notes) I won't be forgetting a thing! This paper is also heavy, and very high quality. It's a nice, generous size too!

One lucky winner gets to take home all three of the items reviewed!
