Gifts for the Gardner in Your Life

Do you know a gardening nut with a special occasion coming up? It’s sometimes hard to buy for a serious gardener, because they are often quite picky about the types of plants and materials they use for their gardens. You don’t have to skip getting them a gardening gift just because you don’t want to buy them the wrong plants or bushes, there are plenty of other things they would greatly appreciate, no matter what their gardening style might be.

Gift Certificates

It’s hard to buy specific plants and blooms for a gardener, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get them a gift certificate from their favorite supplier. You can purchase one from any local store they frequent, or get them one from a special place they may not have visited as of yet. Local botanical gardens are a great choice. Many have a variety of unique items to choose from.


If your gardener friend does not have a sundial, this might be a great choice. You should look at the theme of their garden and take their personal taste in mind when you choose one. You can get ones that sit up off the ground, or ones that lay directly on the ground. Either is a great choice.

Hummingbird Feeder

Some gardens are planted to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. If your friend has made a special place just to attract hummingbirds, get them a hummingbird feeder. Don’t forget the food. Hummingbird feeders are filled with a sugary liquid that keeps them coming back for more.


If it looks like their gardening spade has seen better days, get them a new set of gardening tools. They might like to have a spade, pruners, a small axe, a posthole digger, pitchfork, shovel, hose, rake, bulb planter tool, or any other number of neat tools. If you aren’t sure, ask someone at the store to help you choose the most useful items.


The serious gardener may really appreciate a gadget that helps make gardening easier. There are kits that help test the soil, and meters that help measure soil moisture, soil pH, and a variety of rain gauges.


There are many apparel items that make great gifts for the gardener in your life. Aprons, kneepads, sunhats, gloves, shoes, and boots are just a few of the items you can find.

Watering Items

Many gardeners spend a great deal of time just making sure their plants are properly watered. Look for an easy to handle watering can, a good hose, or a decorative sprinkler. You can also look into getting them a sprinkler timer or a hose guide. A guide helps keep the hose from flattening the plants as they move through the garden watering the plants.


If they don’t have a potting table, this might be a great idea. You can also find decorative benches at decent prices, so they have a spot to sit and enjoy all of their hard work. If you’d like to spend a little more money, get a rolling garden tool kit.

High Tech

If you know the gardener that has everything, there is one thing you may not have considered. There is software available that aids in helping you plan your garden. This software helps you plan a garden that is in tune with where you live. It will help you choose plants and blooms according to your climate, and give you information on the plants you may be considering, and the best way to care for them.
