To honor the recent wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton (now known formally as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge), President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama decided to present a mix of nature and technology.

As a donation to the Charitable Gift Fund setup by the royal couple, the Obamas gifted laptops to PeacePlayers International – which aims to unite, educate and inspire young people in divided communities through basketball (which, as most know, is the President’s favorite sport).

During a personal meeting with the royal family this week, the President and First Lady presented Prince Charles and William and Kate with seeds and plants from the gardens at Monticello, the plantation home of Thomas Jefferson, Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington, and (according to Hello!) from the South Lawn White House garden. They were contained within a handcrafted box made from the wood of a magnolia tree that came down on the White House grounds during a February 2009 snowstorm.

Jars of honey from the official White House beehive were also handed out. Last year, over 100lbs of honey was collected from the “First Hive”. You can see a picture of the gorgeous glass honey vase generally gifted during such visits above. According to Obamafoodorama (a must-read site!), the vase is inspired by nature and composed of lead- free crystal mined from minerals found only in the United States.
