Gardening Gifts

There are plenty of thoughtful and practical gifts you can give to the gardeners in your life. From gloves to books, potted plants to hats, the possibilities are endless. Consider your gardener's interests and needs, and choose a gift that will help her pursue her passion.

Gifts for the Gardener

We’ve shopped for time-tested gifts we’ve given over the years on Amazon to make it easy to send gifts if you can’t be there or just want to avoid the crowds. Gardening is a wonderful way to unwind and connect with nature, and there are so many thoughtful and practical gifts to help the gardeners in your life pursue their passion. Our grandmother gardened every day into her 90s. She was happiest when she had something new to plant or harvest, especially flowering plants like these knockout rose bushes

Whether you or a loved one is a seasoned gardener or just starting out, here are ten of our best gift ideas for the gardeners in your life. While you’re at it, get some gloves for yourself and the kids and help make the yard beautiful this year.

Gardening Gloves

Gardening Gloves

Gardening gloves are a must-have for any gardener. They protect hands from dirt, thorns, and other hazards with these long gloves, while also providing a comfortable grip. Look for gloves made of durable materials like leather or synthetic fabric, with reinforced fingertips and wrist closures for added protection. If you prefer short gloves, there are a number of options. Your mother might like getting both!

Hydroponic Garden

Hydroponic Garden

These self-contained gardens use water and nutrients to grow plants without soil, making them perfect for indoor use. They're easy to set up and maintain, so your mom can enjoy fresh herbs and vegetables without all the fuss. Mine grew fast and yielded bunches of herbs. Above are the seeds and kit I bought on Amazon to restart my indoor garden.

Garden Tool Set

13 piece Garden Tool Set 

Every gardener needs a good set of tools to get the job done. Look for a set that includes a trowel, cultivator, pruning shears, and other essentials, made of high-quality materials that will stand up to frequent use. You can even customize the set with your mom's favorite colors or patterns.

Heavy Duty Alloy Steel Gardening Tool Set

Gardening can be tough on the knees, but a garden kneeler can help. These cushions provide a comfortable place to sit or kneel while working in the garden, with durable construction that resists water and dirt. Look for a model that also doubles as a bench or stool and can hold tools.

Garden Books and Magazines

Garden books are a great source of inspiration and knowledge for any gardener. Look for books on topics like plant identification, flower arranging, or vegetable gardening, with beautiful photos and practical advice. You can even add a gardening magazine subscription for ongoing inspiration.

Garden Decor

Giving garden decor like this hummingbird feeder with hummingbird food is a fun and thoughtful way to add personality to your mom's outdoor space. Choose decorations that reflect her style and interests, such as a wind chimes, garden statue, or decorative bird feeder. You can even make your own DIY garden decor for a personal touch.

Sun Protection and Skin Care

Gardening Hat, Sunscreen, and After-Gardening Skin Care

Gardeners easily get too much sun exposure. A hat with built in UV protection and a skin-loving all over sunscreen or specifically for the face and body makes a thoughtful gift. For a little pampering, add a rich face and body cream and a deep moisturizing shower cleanser. Our grandmother especially liked this old fashioned Bag Balm for dry hands and feet. For diabetic skin care, we especially like this non-greasy, quick absorbing, long lasting skin lotion.

Seed Starter Kit

If the gardener loves to start her plants from seed, a seed starter kit is a great gift idea. Look for a kit that includes everything she needs to get started, such as seed trays, soil, and labels. Be sure to pick seeds that grow well in your region. You can also include a selection of her favorite seeds or new varieties to try. 

Garden Journal and Tote Bag

A garden journal is a great way to track progress and plan for future seasons. You might like this garden journal. Choose a journal with space for notes, sketches, and photos, as well as helpful tips and reminders. You can even personalize the cover with your gardener's name or a special message.

This monogrammed zip-up 13-inch tote bag will give Mon a place to organize her gardening goodies or can be used as a shopping bag or tote bag. A great way to present a gift.

Potted Plants and Plant Stands

Potted Plants, Decorative Pots, and Planter Stands

Potted plants are a versatile gift that can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors. Choose plants that are easy to care for and suited to your mom's environment, such as succulents, herbs, or flowering perennials. Consider adding a decorative planter or stand to complete the gift.
