Heaps Of Unique Gardening Gift Ideas!
I’ve been an avid gardener for years and can’t walk into a store without heading straight for the garden center – no matter what the season. I’m constantly discovering new, fun gardening gift ideas. Gifts I wish people would buy for me!
You see, as someone who’s been gardening for years I have all the tools I need – all the rakes and shovels, all the gloves and knee pads. They are great things to have, but most long-time gardeners already have these. So, if you are considering choosing basic gardening tools as a gift, then just check with the recipient first. They are probably all sorted for tools – but then again – maybe they just may need some new ones.
Nowadays, when I splurge on myself I like to buy long-life planter boxes and tools like that, which make gardening easier and more enjoyable. I like funny little plants like Venus Flytraps or Music Trees. And I love gnomes and fairies in my garden, too! They make awesome gardening gift ideas!
So anyway, I thought I’d gather up my own Gardener’s Wish List and share it with you, in case you have someone like me on your gift list and you’re looking for unique gift ideas for gardeners.
Books always make a great gift. So check out this page too: The Best Garden Books
Handy Gift Ideas For Gardeners
The basic tools are usually welcome, if the gardener has old, decrepit ones. Here is a good selection of nice, shiny and bright new ones!
Garden Gift Baskets
For garden-loving friends and relatives who live far away, it’s sometimes difficult to find just the right gift. You know they already have all the tools they need but you’re hesitant to send them a new potted plant for fear it won’t survive the shipping process.
Instead of sending them another bouquet of flowers that are only going to wilt, or a package of seeds that might get soggy in transit, why not send them a pre-made Gift Basket – specially designed for gardeners? Now that’s one of the easiest gardening gift ideas.
