Looking for some gift options for the special gardener in your life, but not sure what to get them? You’ve come to the right place! There are a lot of great options out there, but if you are unfamiliar with gardening it can be difficult to know what you are looking at. We have put together a list of 6 simple, but meaningful gardening gifts to help make your decision easier!
Although this is a very common and simple gift, a gift card for a seed company or garden center can be super meaningful. Gift cards can be used to purchase seeds or plants for the growing season, or a way for the recipient to finally get that new tool they have been wanting. The possibilities are endless!
Purchasing seeds as a gift can be a little bit more challenging, as you may not know exactly what the person you are buying for may want to grow. However, if you have a general idea of what they like to grow, you can find a lot of great options. If you are unsure of what varieties to get, ask an employee and we can help you pick out some of our more popular options. It can also be fun to get different seeds to experiment with throughout the growing season!
Having high quality tools when working in the garden can make it much more enjoyable. Gardening tools range from the simplest trowels and pruners to more complex weeding and edging tools. This can make a great gift because tools can be a little more expensive and often it is easy to put off investing in higher quality tools.
Gardening books are a great gift option for someone who wants to learn more about gardening in general or a specific topic. There are all types of books available including books on growing vegetables, flowers, landscape plants and many more!
Microgreens and Sprouting Seeds
Many gardeners enjoy growing microgreens and sprouting seeds indoors in addition to having a garden! Growing microgreens is a great way to have your own fresh greens all throughout the year! This is also a great gift option for someone who is just getting into gardening, or does not necessarily have the space to have a garden.
Gardening Gift Basket
If you are unsure of what to get, putting together a gift basket with some smaller items can be a great option. When we put together a “Gardening Gift Basket” we include the following: A few packets of seeds, a pair of gardening gloves, a small container of all purpose fertilizer, a kneeling pad, and a trowel. Of course, there are plenty of other options, but customizing it is half the fun!
When it comes to buying a special gift for the gardeners in your life, there are a lot of great options that they are sure to appreciate!
