Descanso Gardens Gift Shop
The Descanso Gardens Gift Shop and Patio is a cozy, cedar-beamed complex near the entrance to Gardens. The Gift Shop carries items of interest for all visitors: home gardening enthusiasts, landscape and interior designers, horticulturists and plant lovers everywhere.
Merchandise in the Shop includes home and garden furnishings, such as garden benches, bird baths, statuary, lanterns and cherubs. The art lover will find beautifully framed prints, original watercolors, rugs and wall hangings.
No botanical garden gift shop would be complete without a vast array of garden and nature books for both adults and children. Other merchandise includes an exceptional selection of cards and other gift items such as lovely glassware, ceramics and collectibles. Outdoor wear includes T-shirts, sweatshirts, gloves and hats.
The Gift Shop is open every day except Christmas. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. For information, phone (818) 949-4292.
