Gardener Gift Ideas
Every gardener has ideas on what they would like, usually. But if your favorite gardener has no idea about what types of gift they would like, here are a few ideas:
Most people will appreciate a book if it has something to do with their favorite thing. By sending a book about their passion, such as gardening, it shows them that you ARE paying attention and that you do care about them and their passion.
The Week-by-Week Vegetable Gardener’s Handbook– This very thorough handbook guides both novice and experienced gardeners through getting the most out of their vegetable garden throughout the entire gardening season. This spiral-bound book can be used as both a garden planner and a journal to record important information for next season.
Martha’s Flowers: A Practical Guide to Growing, Gathering, and Enjoying– If your gardener prefers flower gardens to vegetable gardens, this book is a must-have! As would be expected, this book has beautiful photographs. The flowers discussed in this book aren’t exotic, rare buds requiring more-than-normal care. Martha suggests every day garden flowers, and weaves stories about them throughout the book. Her co-writer, Kevin Sharkey, has years of experience with flower arranging, and can help your gardener design a garden that is beautiful.
Gardening Moleskine Passion Journal– Second only to getting their hands in the dirt, gardeners enjoy writing about their gardens. There are many details to record: varieties planted, weather, yield, and environmental conditions all play a part in having a great garden. This beautiful journal will be a great gift for the gardener you love!
If you are looking more for a physical gift instead of a book, here are just a few examples of things that your gardener would love to have. Once you stop looking around, you will be able to find many many more fun gifts to send to your favorite gardener.
Folding Potting Bench/Event Table– This cute bench does double duty. Gardeners can use it to help with those garden chores that can be done standing up, then move it to the patio to serve as a table when they are entertaining. Anything that can do double duty is bound to be a hit. It assembles without tools, making it a perfect gift, especially if you can’t be there to help your gardener assemble it.
Sun Protection Hat– We all know the importance of sun protection, but garden hats are often overlooked. Anyone can pick up a hat at the discount store down the street, but those usually aren’t given a UPF rating. Amazon has this great one that is rated UPF 50+ for maximum sun protection! On the plus side, it’s not ugly, so your lady gardener will appreciate your thoughtfulness even more! The lanyard helps to keep the hat from blowing away on windy days.
Garden Genie Gloves– If your gardener has ever drug you out into the garden with them, you know that they use their fingers to dig out weeds or potatoes. Their nails end up dirty and broken, and they sometimes gets pricked by thorny plants. These gloves solve all of those problems! They actually have removable claws on the ends, so they isn’t using their fingernails to get at pesky roots. They’re durable, so no more thorn pokes.
