This post was fun to write, I’m not gonna lie. Not that I don’t enjoy writing about celery, peas and broccoli . . . but I love sharing my choices for the 10 best gifts for gardeners.
Most of these I own and love, but a few (dropping a not-so-subtle hint to my husband here), I would love to have. If you are shopping for the gardener in your life and are looking for gardening gift ideas, look no further.
Gardening Gift Ideas - Gifts for Gardeners
Gifts for Gardeners: Birth month flower necklace
There is a birthstone for each month, but did you realize there is also a flower? Artist Shari Dixon immortalizes the actual flower beautifully in resin in this necklace. Thoughtful and a bit sentimental, just like us gardeners.
Gifts for Gardeners: A reliable planting guide
Planting at the right time is one of the most important parts of gardening. My perpetual planting calendar, created for the low desert of Arizona, shows exactly what to plant each month.
This perpetual calendar also has pictures from my garden of what can be harvested each month. A practical gift that is also well-made and will last for years.
Gardening Gift Idea: A tool belt made just for gardeners
Looking for a splurge for your favorite gardener? You can’t go wrong with this handcrafted tool belt from Floret. I’ve had mine for almost 3 years and I love it. It’s comfortable on your hips, and stores my favorite pruners, my dibber, cell phone, and a few packs of seeds. It’s not bulky or heavy and it saves the back pocket of my jeans from ripping. Bonus: I put my pruners back in my belt instead of on the ground to accidentally throw them away.
Gifts for Gardeners: A thoughtful poem
Even if you don’t end up choosing this gift for your favorite gardener, take a minute to read this beautiful poem by Joanna Miller. We gardeners can be an eccentric lot, and this gives you a beautiful glimpse into our hearts. Love this.
Gardening Gift Idea: The ideal gardening tool
This hori-hori garden knife is the kind of tool that once I had it I don’t know how I gardened without it. It is so useful for transplanting, weeding, cutting roots, and digging. I love keeping it nearby when I garden.
Gifts for Gardeners: The perfect t-shirt
Gardening Gift Idea: An antique-looking find that won't break the bank
I’m drawn to beautiful antique watering cans. Unfortunately, although beautiful, many antiques aren’t functional and they leak, while those that don’t leak are often expensive. I love this watering can from Target; the antique look that doesn’t leak, at a reasonable price.
Gardening Gift Idea: A practical gardening book
I like to keep things simple and easy to understand. That’s exactly what I tried to do when writing this book. How to Grow Your Own Food – An Illustrated Beginner’s Guide to Container Gardening identifies 50 common, easy-to-grow edible plants from herbs to vegetables, along with detailed care instructions.
Gardening Gift Idea: Watering made easy
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. Use code GROWING to save.
Gifts for Gardeners: The perfect stocking stuffer
Until I had this tool, my nails/gloves would always wear out a little faster. This wooden dibber helps to plant bulbs and seedlings. I love the printed scale as it helps me plant each item at the correct depth.
