We’ve compiled a list of 25 awesome Gifts for Garden Lovers because there truly is no better hobby in the world – it was Mohandas K. Ghandi that said, “to forget how to dig the earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselves.” And he was probably right! Whether you’re searching for a gift for a green thumb friend, garden gifts for your mom, you really should consider grabbing a gardening goodie for yourself. There’s no feeling like creating something from nothing in the garden and watching life grow out of the ground.
25 Great Gifts for Garden Lovers That All Gardeners Should Own
This piece has a ton of great hobby gifts, from gardener themed socks to tools you can use out in the yard or greenhouse. We’ve split everything into several categories so you can find exactly what you’re looking for right off the bat – we’ll start with gardening tools, then lifestyle products (things you wouldn’t necessarily use in the garden.) So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the coolest gifts for gardeners out there.
Unique Garden Tools
Here are some amazing tools for use in the garden – whether it’s benches to help your endurance in the garden, or a kit to get your very own avocado tree started, there’s definitely going to be something both useful and unique here to choose from!
Most gardeners are aware that bees are under siege – there’s data showing that bee populations are going down sharply. Homeowners will also note that carpenter bees really seem to enjoy burrowing holes into the side of your house. This bee house is a perfect solution to both help bees have a better environment and hopefully sustain their population, as well as protect the wood that you don’t want them to dig into. Plus, it’s biodegradable, and made from bamboo!
This is an excellent garden apron – it’s purpose built to be used for gardeners. It has great features, like a chest pocket, waterproof fabric, and a brown color that protects it against immediately looking dirty. Although, that’s not such a bad thing for gardeners! In any case, the multiple pockets and included knee pads will certainly be perfect for a gardener either in a green house or the yard.
Plant labels are absolutely essential for a true gardener! Everyone knows the feeling of planting something in the fall and forgetting what was there next spring. This set is great because first, there is sixty pieces so you’ll have enough to label everything – but also, the set is made of bamboo which is absolutely perfect for the garden – if you lose them, they will degrade into the soil nicely.
Everyone loves avocadoes. And everyone (gardeners) at least, have felt the deep pain of throwing away avocado seeds knowing that it’s a total waste of a perfectly good potential avocado tree. This growing kit ensures that you will be able to successfully sprout avocado seeds with no hassle! It keeps them in just the right level of water so you’ll never have to worry about mold. If you live in a warm climate, more power to you, go ahead and plant these out in the garden!
The organization of a garden bag is one of the great impossibilities of life. Like a purse, it seems to have a mind of its own when it comes to getting organized. This set of tools is an attempt to solve that problem – not only does it come with all the essentials you’ll need in your garden, from cloves to a weed puller and trowel, it also stores them conveniently, and hopefully in an organized manner.
This birdfeeder is possibly the cutest birdfeeder on the planet. It is shaped like a squirrel that is in the midst of being surprised and is about to run away, and its tail, which is pulled up behind it serves as a platter where you can put bird food. Is anyone else waiting for the picture-perfect moment when a squirrel comes up to eat its fill though?
Many of us have found it rewarding to set up a terrarium or miniature garden indoors. This can be a great respite from the summertime heat and also the bitter winter cold. It’s always nice to have something to take care of through the winter. This set of miniature tools is just the right size for terrarium or mini-garden maintenance.
Who doesn’t love Groot! This baby Groot flowerpot has the best puppy dog eyes look on its face, and is perfect for putting a small plant in, so that it will literally grow out of Groot’s head. What more can you ask for; it perfectly matches his character! Groot is eve holding a small bird’s nest with a yellow chick in it for added cute value.
This vegetable grow kit is perfect for a newcomer to gardening or an experienced gardener alike. How could this be? Well, for the newcomer, it includes absolutely everything you need to start growing your own vegetables – no walking around Home Depot wondering what to get needlessly. And for the expert, the kit contains some really cool novelty seeds that you may not have encountered before – from purple carrots, red chard, striped tomato’s…et cetera.
These gloves are absolutely revolutionary. Not only are they waterproof and puncture resistant, which means no more raisin hands after working in the garden, or scrapes on questionable rusty wires from who knows where, they also have claws on the end of four fingers – which makes digging in the garden super easy. Everyone knows the pain of having to walk back across the yard for a shovel when your hands would do just as well if only you had a bit more “umph.” Well now you do! They come in multiple colors too.
This walk-in greenhouse is perfect for someone who needs the greenhouse effect in the cooler months of spring and fall, but can’t necessarily do the heavy lifting that is needed to construct a classic glass structure with a wooden frame. It’s easy to set up and can be used either indoors or outdoors making it the perfect controlled environment for your plants.
These gloves are perfect for gardeners. They’re constructed from bamboo, which is breathable and will leave your hands feeling cool in the summer. They also have a rubber layer on the palm and finger to prevent moisture from seeping in and also give you some extra grip around a shovel or wheelbarrow, so it’s the perfect utility gift for gardeners.
Wheelbarrows are a classic feature of gardens, but If you’ve ever used one when it is fully loaded, you know that it can be a pain to actually wield. This four wheeled cart is as durable as a wheelbarrow and has a quick release dump feature that makes hauling mulch and compost across the yard easier than ever.
Working on your knees in the garden can really start to hurt after a while. And it leaves your clothes dirty. This kneeler is perfect for the problem – it has two functions, both as a padded seat that you can kneel on, or if you flip it over, a full on stool that you can sit on while pruning plants or preparing beds for winter.
This leaf bag is great for its durability. Whether you want to carry leaf waste or even harvested vegetables, this bag is built to last. It’s made of canvas and the straps are specially designed to be durable over time, a great feature for garden equipment that will carry heavy loads.
This planter bed seems to be on the cusp of being a hydroponic system. It’s perfect for a patio, and helps you to keep plants properly watered even if you forget about them for a while – which is easy to do with super sensitive potted plants.
This seat is designed for comfort in the garden. The wheels are contoured to give you a better range of motion and help prevent back pain from sitting. It’s fully adjustable and can be used when hubby is working on the car too!
The sun can seriously do damage over the course of a Saturday afternoon in the garden, and this gardener’s hat will protect against that. It’s got a 50+ UPF protection rating, meaning your face is protected against harmful rays. And it’s a classic gardener look!
These are some cool gifts for garden lovers – whether it be for you or a loved one, these are cool garden gifts that won’t be used in the garden! Every gardener wears socks, and every gardener should drink coffee – and if they don’t, there’s certainly something else here that they will find to their liking! We’ve also included strictly decorative items here.
This solar wind spinner is an excellent addition to add to the ambiance of a garden or patio. It has two main functions, first the metal arms oscillate in the wind, giving it a very hypnotizing effect. This spinner has an added feature though – a light which softly beams at night to create an extra calming effect. The spinner has multiple jewel colors and switches between them slowly and automatically.
This plant stand is perfect for low lying areas of the garden, or directly under a larger bush or tree. It’s a copper tricycle that can hold three small pots. This also makes it perfect for an indoor set up, near a living room or kitchen window. The stand allows the pots to be held at different heights adding to the aesthetic value. This tricycle is in the Parisian style and will add an extra bit of style to any garden.
This owl garden stake is perfect for next to a small yard pond or nestled in between bushes in the back yard. It can also be attached to a patio fence. The owl illuminates in soft colors from solar power and adds a lot of personality to a garden. If you can hear the owl in your garden but rarely see him, this is a great addition to the garden and gives the area a lot more spirit!
This is a super cute pair of socks that is perfect for gardeners! It has a pink background with potted plants on it, and the pattern says “Proud plant mom” on the upper part of the sock. The rest of the sock has various potted plants (including cacti). At the end of the day, everyone knows you really can’t beat a pair of socks as a gift! Even if she doesn’t like them, she can just wear them into the garden!
These butterfly wind chimes are absolutely amazing! They come in a column of several butterflies, all of which light up with different neon colors. The wind chimes are made of durable material that will last longer than metal or glass chimes, and they light up at night automatically. Perfect for a patio or summer garden.
This coffee mug is absolutely priceless and is perfect for the gardener who also has a goofy sense of humor. The mug says, “I wet my plants” and has a watering pail on the front of it. The print is on both sides of the mug so you can see it no matter which way its facing – and is the perfect size for a morning cup of coffee or chai before going out to do some work in the garden before the sun gets to high in the sky.
Some seeds, like hot peppers, require a high temperature to even sprout. Others just do it much more willingly when it’s nice and warm. If you want to get your sprouts started before spring so they will be ready to go when the weather is right, this is the perfect tool for you and is a must have gadget for any serious gardener.
