This is my 4th year doing a gift guide, and I have to say this guide is my favorite one so far. These kitchen gifts for gardeners are the ones that make life easier, food tastier, and harvests last longer. Hope you like them as much as I do.
The goal with most of the vegetables, herbs, and fruit I grow in my garden is to harvest them and bring them to into my kitchen. Through the years I’ve come to appreciate quality products that last a long time and that help me use and process my garden harvests.
If you’re looking for even more garden gift information, head to my previous gift guides. I share other garden favorites there.

Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Harvest Baskets
I love these harvest baskets so much that after buying the square-shaped one, I bought the rectangle size too. They are perfect for gathering garden harvests and look good sitting in the kitchen. During tomato season, they are usually filled with ripening and ripe tomatoes on my kitchen counter.
Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Herb Scissors
Chopping up fresh herbs is so simple with these scissors – no cutting board required. The 5 blades slice the herbs easily and quickly. They are easy to clean and durable too. I bought my herb scissors in 2016 and they look (and work) as well as the day I bought them.
Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Breville Citrus Press
Citrus season around here is no joke. We process large amounts of lemons, oranges, and grapefruits every year. I bought this citrus press in 2012 during citrus season here in Arizona, and I’ve used it every year since. The durable die-cast juicing cone and stainless steel parts are well-made. It is quick, thorough, and squeezes every drop.
Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Iced Tea Maker
I love making large batches of roselle tea all summer long in this pitcher. Put dried roselle in the center infuser and then fill the pitcher with water — about 12 hours later the tea is ready to go. It is easy to clean and durable.
Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Keurig K-Supreme Plus Coffee Maker
My kids love this coffee maker for making hot chocolate, but I love using the included “My K-Cup” for making single servings of hot / iced roselle tea and other herbal teas all year long.
Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Produce Saver
An abundance of fresh produce lasts so much longer when I store it in the fridge in these containers. It’s like magic! They stack easily for storage, but they are usually in my fridge keeping garden harvests fresh.
Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Excalibur Dehydrator
I recently upgraded to an Excalibur dehydrator. This was a much needed upgrade. There are plenty of trays, making it easy to process large harvests. Some of my favorite things to dehydrate are ginger, peppers, apples, onions, tomatoes, greens & herbs.
Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Vitamix Blender
After many years of buying and then replacing broken blenders, I invested in this Vitamix in 2015. It’s been used almost daily since that time for morning smoothies, grinding dehydrated herbs, chopping veggies, and much more.
Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Compost Bin
This kitchen compost bin earned a spot on my kitchen counter back in 2015. It looks good and doesn’t smell or attract bugs (the carbon filter helps with that). It makes it easy to add kitchen scraps to my vermicomposting or compost bins.
Kitchen gifts for gardeners: Cast Iron Pan
Cast iron skillets are classic and last nearly forever. Don’t underestimate the size of this pan. It’s huge! (Make sure it will fit in your oven). But its size is the thing I love most about it. I use this pan all the time when making large meals for my hungry boys (and their friends). I’ve had my pan since 2012.
