For some people, gardening is an activity that holds no appeal. But for others, it’s as good as life itself. If you have someone in your life who just can’t get enough of having their hands in the dirt, making sure every aspect of their outdoor space is exactly as they want it, then that’s good news for you. Not only will have a beautiful green space to enjoy, but it also makes buying them presents all the more straightforward: you can just buy them presents connected with their passion! Don’t worry if you don’t know the first thing about gardening, either. Below, we’ve put together ten terrific gift ideas that all gardeners will love.
A Gift Basket
Gardeners like a lot of fancy tools and gadgets, but they also need to ensure they have all the basics taken care of, too, and you can never have too many of them! As such, why not put together a gift basket filled with all the essentials that a gardener needs? This can include things like seeds, plant pots, and the like. Oh, and don’t forget that a gardening is forever fighting with their gloves. If they’ve had their current pair for longer than anyone can remember, buy them a new fresh set. They’ll be thankful when it comes to pruning those spiky rose bushes.
Getting Started with the Veg
You can always throw a new challenge at a gardener. If they’re into their hobby as much as you think, then they’ll love the idea of doing something new! Most people only focus on their flowers and the like; but where’s the love for the veg? If they don’t currently have a vegetable patch in their plot of land, look at getting them everything they need to get one starter. Of course, this will have benefits for you, too: in a few months; you’ll be able to enjoy the freshest vegetables, straight from the garden.
What’s Happening in the Garden?
Do you know what a gardener’s pet peeve is? It’s setting aside a whole day to spend in the garden, only to wake up, draw the curtains, and oh gosh, it’s raining cats and dogs out there. You can take the guesswork out of which days they can prune and which days they can’t by buying them their own garden weather station! They’ll place it at the end of their garden, and from the comfort of the indoors will be able to see the garden’s temperature and weather forecast. Trust us: they’ll love it, especially when they no longer have to handle “unexpected” rain showers!
New Toys and Tools
If you’re gardening relative or friend is new to the hobby, then they’ll slowly but surely building their gardening toolbox, but they’ll be some essential equipment that they’re missing. So why not get them a gift that they might not choose to buy for themselves, and which will also take their gardening skills and attributes to the next level? All gardeners have a use for things like a chainsaw. Of course, these can be tricky to buy if you don’t know what you’re looking for. As such, it’s important that you get help: Tool Nerds has great saw reviews that’ll help you find the right one. With this in the shed, they’ll be able to tackle the larger projects that they’ve so far been unable to get underway.
Yes, the idea of buying gifts is to make about the other person…but no rule says you can’t also make it a little bit for yourself! If they’ve only been focusing on the tasks that make the garden look pretty, it might be severely lacking in the fun department. This is where you can come in. Buy a hammock, or a BBQ, and you’ll be ensuring that everyone – the gardener and your friends and family – can enjoy the outdoor space once the warm weather has returned.
It’s true that you don’t need to dress well when it comes to gardening; indeed, that’s the opposite of what you want. However, some gardeners take this to a new level, choosing to wear the same old tired t-shirt for years on end! This year, buy them some new clothes specifically for gardening. They can be functional, such as thick clothing that’ll protect them from thorns and the cold, or they can be funny, such as clothing that tells the world just obsessed with gardening they are.
Making the Essential Tasks Easier
You can ask all gardeners what they’d like to be doing when they’re in the garden, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who says they enjoy keeping the grass in shape. They want to be doing the intricate, interesting stuff, not spending their day keeping the grass from getting all wild. There is a solution, however: a robotic grass cutter! Have one of these, and they’ll be able to focus on the important tasks knowing that their little robot friend is making sure the grass looks pretty.
There’s a few long and cold months when it’s just not enjoyable to be outside, and this is when the garden is left to its own devices. However, that doesn’t mean that they can’t indulge in their passion! There are many gardening books available. They might look boring to you, but they’ll be appreciated by someone who wants to learn more and improve their skills.
For the Skin
It’s nice to think of a person spending all those long days outside in the great outdoors, but there is a negative side effect to being outdoors so much: it can wreak havoc with a person’s skin. As such, look at getting them skin care products that’ll help to protect their skin when they’re out in the rain, wind, and sunshine all day.
For the Person with Everything
Finally, don’t forget the old tried and tested gift: a gift certificate! If you think they’ve already got everything they need, they’ll be able to buy something fun that’s gardening related.
