Everyone has a friend or family member who is passionate about gardening, right? Well you know when those occasions like Birthdays, Christmas or special events roll by thinking of garden gift ideas can be a challenge. We always love giving gifts that support their passion and something for their outdoor gardening hobby will always be a winner!
But WHAT do you give a gardener which is not soil or plants?
If you don’t love gardening, you may be a bit stumped for an idea of what kind of gifts to give a gardening enthusiast.
That is why I have put together a list of great garden gift ideas, which may just be what you need!
Gardeners Tool Seat
Gardening needs you to be low to the ground a lot of the time. This means lots of stooping and bending over to dig, pull weeds, plant or harvest. When doing this over time it can wreak havoc on the back, muscles, and joints. These handy seats are low enough to put you within arm’s reach, while reducing the stresses on knees, ankles and back. As a bonus, they are also generally designed to hold small gardening tools; keeping them organized and easily accessible.
Hand and Skin Care Products
Working with soil can be harsh on hands and skin, in general. Skin scrubs and creams that moisturise, repair and protect the skin are excellent ideas for a gift. Add a pair of gloves, a gardening hat, and some sun protection products and you are set with the best gift for a gardener.
From basic and inexpensive to spendy and massive, bird feeders are charming and fun. Some gardeners love to attract birds to their gardens and a bird feeder is one of the best ways to do so. This is a gift that allows the gardener to draw birds to their yard to enjoy as well as offer the little feathery creatures some food.
Outdoor Stereo System
Gifts from the Garden
It’s a little bit of a twist to give a gardener a book that explains how gardeners can give gifts from their gardens. These types of books can help gardeners spread the love of their hobby by sharing what they grow. Talk about a beautiful and fun idea! There are many innovative ideas for gardening these days and books or magazine subscriptions are a great way to keep your gardener in-the-know.
Materials for Something New
Some people are just ultra creative; always dreaming up new ways of making something more exciting than what it already was. Shadow box planters, succulents growing from walls, upside down gardening techniques. Why not give your gardener a new and exciting method to try as well? Check what methods they are already using in their backyard and find something that will compliment their set up and excite them.
The sight, the smell and the feel of the earth and vegetation do wonders for the soul. Why not give the gift of a terrarium, combining the outdoors with the indoors in miniature. Beautiful clear glass containers vary in shape and size to accommodate personal style and living space.
Protecting tools, seeds, bulbs and other supplies from the harsh weather during the seasons is an important part of ensuring their longevity. Why not provide them with an impressive and stylish storage solution the Vertical Shed or the Novel Storage Shed. Both are designed with a classy modern look that is certain to compliment any space while protecting a gardener’s valuables.
Turn any backyard garden into a magical place by illuminating it with lights! There is no shortage of styles or power types. Strung twinkling lights, themed lights, solar lights…any lights are going to add a fabulously warm, inviting glow at night, to one of your gardeners favourite places to be.
As with any type of gift giving, the key to success is showing interest in a person, their interests, hobbies, and passions. Happy gift giving!
