Choose the Mr/Mr, Mr/Mrs or Mrs/Mrs design for the large stone and customize with any name up to 12 characters and any message up to 18 characters. Smaller stones are available for names up to 12 characters.

Crafted of durable, heavy resin with a realistic stone texture, these garden rocks are made to last for decades. The large stone is 12 inches in diameter and the small stone is 6.75 inches in diameter.

Put whatever you would like on this beautiful natural stone. It is sealed, stenciled and treated for outdoor use with three durable coats of UV-protectant sealer. At just about $6 each, these are a brilliant way to keep track of young and easily-confused plants.

We especially love these for indicating specific varieties of thyme, oregano, basil, mint and other yum-worthy herbs.

Dog crossing garden stones

How adorable is this dog crossing stone for pup-filled homes? We love the practical charm it lends to all sorts of gardens. Use it as an accent piece or a literal stepping stone. The 9-5/8” diameter makes this a viable option for both uses.

It also includes hardware on the back for hanging on your wall or patio. At under $25, it’s also an affordable gift for women in their 20s.
