Do you know someone who loves to garden? Every year is such an exciting adventure and learning experience. There are some things that make gardening easier and I have compiled this list of my top 10 useful and great gardening gift ideas that I personally own or would love to own. Hoping this will help you choose a great gardening gift for that special gardener in your life.
I started off gardening very small in my, then, small inner city home. I grew a few vegetables in the 18” space beside the side walk. Didn’t take long to catch the gardening bug so when I bought the farm one of the first things was to make myself a huge garden space.
The gardener will appreciate if you spend your money wisely on quality equipment. It may be a bit of an initial investment but they will save money by not having to replace it every year! Trust me I’ve learned that the hard way!
Planning is half the battle when it comes to gardening. Garden journals are a great way to stay organized. I couldn’t find one that suited my needs so like everything else I created my own! It has 22 pages for you to plan on including tips and tricks for every season, to-do lists, trackers, and budget sheets. It’s also digital so you can print off new pages as needed every year.
Every gardener needs a great pair of gloves, mud is dirt after all. We’ve all washed our hands overly these past couple years. Protect them! These cowhide gloves available on Etsy are even customizable with the gardener’s name.
A great set of garden shears is a pleasure to use and I’m just in love with this mini set from Lee Valley.
A good rake that is small enough to get into the tight spots and light enough to use for more than a few minutes is a must.
An all metal sprinkler head is a sturdy and reliable choice. I’ve tried the cheap plastic ones but ended up going through several during a growing season. Not anymore that I’ve upgraded to a metal one.
For planting, moving plants or turning compost all gardeners need one of these.
These hand tools are beautiful and functional for when you need to get up close and personal with your plants.
Of course they may need help identifying those plants for all those non-gardeners! We make these beautifully rustic handmade garden markers here at the farm. They are sturdy and available in flowers, veggies, herbs and you can even have them personalized. They make a great gift for both the novice and experienced gardener. You can find them in our Etsy shop.
A reliable and reputable seed company will have so many options for you to choose from! Find something unique for your gardener and their garden.
You could also make a gift for your gardener! Our instructions on making a Twig Heart are simple to follow and if all the connections are made with wire would stand up to the elements and look beautiful hanging in any garden. Handmade gifts are special and almost always appreciated.
