Gifts for Gardeners

There are a lot of different gifts for gardeners out there, and you’ll need to think about the type of gardener you are getting a gift for. Are you shopping for a vegetable gardener or a flower gardener? If your gardening friends are more into watching wildlife, you could make a squirrel feeder.

Do they like adding pretty garden elements to their garden or do they have a rustic veggie patch? These questions can help decide on a gift idea for gardeners. If you know your gardening friend really well, you can check out this gardener quiz to possibly help pick out a gift.

Whether you know a gardener and need a gift for the holidays, a birthday, or other occasions, here’s a list of gifts for a gardener.

Best Gifts for Gardeners

Whether you know a gardener and need a gift for the holidays, a birthday or other occasions, here’s a list I’ve created for gardener gifts.

In this post I’ll give you some gardener gifts for both, and some that are tailored depending on the type of gardener you’re buying for.

Gathering and Harvesting Baskets

Whether you know a flower gardener or a veggie gardener, harvesting in a beautiful basket is a welcome gift. You can seriously NEVER have too many gathering baskets!

The photo below is the one I received years ago and I’m still completely in love with it, I always talk about it and it was locally made by an artisan. It also takes pretty photos of harvests.

Seed Collections

Gifts for gardeners

Many seed companies have great seed collections. I love these ones from the Seed Savers exchange.

Seed Gift Certificates

Many gardeners love growing different varieties and love seeds. Bonus points if you get the companies seed catalog with it. Most gardeners prefer to buy their own seeds rather than receive them, it’s part of the fun of choosing what seeds to grow that makes gardening so appealing to many.

Gardening Gift Ideas for the Flower Gardener

A flower gardener is someone who loves beauty. They regularly enjoy cut flowers from the garden and will likely enjoy pretty garden décor. This is an easier gardener to shop for than your vegetable gardener if you’re looking for gifts.
Gardener gifts to love: Floret Farm Cut Flower Book

Floret Farm came out with a gorgeous and super informative book this year. Even though I’m a veggie gardener, this book was a must have for me to expand my gardening into beauty. If you know a flower gardener they will love this book. Be sure to check out her seed shop too, she sells out fast but has beautiful flower varieties that a flower gardener would definitely appreciate. She also has a pretty daily planner.

Other great choices for a flower gardener include pretty vases for flowers chosen depending on their home style, whether something like French vintage or modern.

Other items such as floral scissors or decorative elements to add to the garden like garden gnomes or decorative stepping stones.

Practical Garden Gifts

I personally lean towards the practical gardening. Just this past summer I was given a gift certificate to our local garden center and I went for bales of soil & fruit bushes! The practical gardener will appreciate gift certificates to any of the local nurseries or garden centers.

Garden planters

Whether someone is indoor gardening and needs a little garden planter, or someone with a patio or larger garden, garden planters make a nice and purposeful gift. I like the rustic barrel picture below, but there are many uniques types depending on the style of the gardener you’re buying for.

Gardening Books

Most gardeners love gardening books. If you know a beginner gardener then choose basic ones. The experienced gardener might appreciate a book on heirloom tomatoes or growing food year round. I’m a huge fan of more knowledge the better gardener you can become, so giving the gift of gardening books helps to create better gardeners.
