10 Gifts Every Gardener Will Love

I’m sharing 10 gifts every gardener will love and use. Here are my picks for the perfect presents for the plant lover on your holiday list. 

Gifts for Gardeners: Mason bee planter

A planter with a mason bee house? Yes, please! Add your favorite flowers to attract native bees, and the bees can nest in the tubes. I’ve loved this bright addition to my garden. 

Gifts for Gardeners: A gardening book

This charming book “We are the Gardeners” by Joanna Gaines has a great message for children and adults. I didn’t mind a bit when my son picked it for his bedtime book 4 nights in a row. 

Gifts Every Gardener Will Love: Planter vases

This countertop planter holds 3 plants. Place basil, tomato, or rosemary cuttings (or other type) in the water and watch the roots grow. Propagating plants means free plants! 

Gifts for Gardeners: Seed sprouter

10 Gifts Every Gardener Will Love 2019

Want to eat healthier during and after the holidays? This seed sprouter from Botanical Interests is an easy way to grow sprouts indoors all year long. Add a sprout seed pack sampler and the sprouts will keep on coming for a long time. 

Gardening Gift Idea: Seed catalog ornaments

Vintage seed packets are a personal favorite of mine. I love these vintage seed catalog cover ornaments. Definitely a great gift at the holidays for any gardener. 

Gifts for Gardeners: No more fruit flies!

Between the compost collection on the counter and citrus fruit ripening outside, fruit flies can become a problem inside. This ceramic garlic bulb looks good and is a fruit fly trap. It attracts flies, is easily refillable, and earns its keep in the kitchen without being an eyesore.  

Gifts Every Gardener Will Love: Fisher Blacksmithing garden tools

Designed and hand forged by craftsman Tuli Fisher. “There aren’t any really amazing garden tools for gardeners, but gardening is an art, so why not have luxury tools to work with? They’re just going to make it easier and make it more fun!”, Fisher says.

These functional tools are also beautiful. Fisher’s tools were described in Forbes Magazine as “look[ing] more like they’ve been unearthed than designed.”  

Gifts for Gardeners: Heirloom flower press

This heirloom-quality flower press is heavyweight, simple to use, and beautiful enough to display while the flowers are being pressed.

Gardening Gift Idea: Watering made easy

These Garden Grids from Garden in Minutes are the best way to easily and effectively water raised beds. Use code “Angela10” to get $10 off a purchase of $100 or more. 

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know I love ollas for watering containers. Give your gardener the gift of time with an olla from Growoya. The vessel is buried underground and you keep it filled with water, which saves water and time to grow better plants.

Practical Gifts for Gardeners: Labels for plants

Labeling plants and trees is an important part of gardening. These 2 methods have worked great for me for years. 

Label trees and perennials around the garden with these aluminum markers. They are easy to emboss with a ball-point pen. Use the included wire to hang a large loop around a scaffolding branch. 

I’ve tried many methods for labeling herbs and vegetables, and this one is my favorite. Unlike other tags, these labels last all season. 

At the end of the season, I simply paint over the labels and use them again. I use a white sharpie paint pen to write on the metal plant tags.

  1. Oh my goodness, this is so tough to choose from, they’re all so wonderful! I’m totally eyeing the fruit fly catcher or flower press though Thank you for such a wonderful giveaway!

  2. I would love to win the flower press! I made some of the pressed flower ornaments you posted and they turned out beautiful! I have big plans for next year.

  3. Fabulous roundup of gift ideas! I’m going with the popular vote here—the flower press is a total winner! I would love to make some beautiful wall art using pressed flowers from my garden. Is there a better way to preserve & display beautiful and homegrown flowers!?

  4. Those are all so cool! I think I’d get the garlic bulb first and then the watering grid. Or maybe the flower press and the bee house. Hard to choose!!

  5. I would like the gardening tools! My kids like to “borrow” mine and end up leaving them forgotten in our beds/borders so I’ve lost several. Need some nice new ones (that I will hide).

  6. My oldest recently has taken to gardening and asked for gardening tools for Christmas I would definitely go with the gardening tools, Joanna Gains book, or the mason beehive!

  7. I love them all but that seed sprouter is super cool! I sprout mine in a mason jar now and I feel like it’s not as effective as it could be.

  8. How on earth to decide?! All are su h grand choices! I especially love the flower press. Living in Colorado, I am.surrounded by wildflowers & want to make floral, laminated bookmarks for friends, but what I NEED are those aluminum plant markers for my ever expanding garden. Plastic doesn’t work. Wooden popsicle sticks don’t last… these would be perfect!

  9. These are lovely gift ideas. I would love them all! But the fruit fly garlic or the garden tags I would get today! Thanks for the suggestions!

  10. These are all amazing gift ideas! I would love to receive the the growoya, and i would love to give my mom the mason bee planter or the planter vases. She loves bees and propagating plants!

  12. This is the first time I’ve seen your page and I love it. I can’t wait to read more! I would pick the Mason Bee House to give to my daughter for her 4-H pollinator garden. My second choice would be the Planter Vases for myself. My windowsills are full of little cuttings that I want to root.

  15. Well that is a very hard choice to make but the bee hotel is what I am interested in and will be creating this spring for my garden.

  16. Oh my!!! My fav are the mason bee planter, flower press and the counter top planter bases. If i had to choose one it would mason bee planter because i have not seen as many bees as i use to and i do not want them to become extinct and that would become a farmers worst nightmare.

  17. What a great selection to choose from! I would love to have the plant vases as I do a lot of propagating, but this is much more attractive than what I am using now! I would love to win this!

  18. So hard to choose. It is like a kid with a toy catalog. The flower press is what I most likely wouldnt purchase for myself so would probably choose that for…this is the best gift ever….feeling again!!

  19. Oh oh! I definitely want to win the Growing Vases! These look incredible and living in the Nevada desert, I need these!
