Gifts for the Gardener

Gardeners will dig our favorite gifts for the vegetable patch and potting shed, from hoses and tools to boots and bandanas.

For experienced gardeners, an heirloom tool will be a treasured gift for years to come. A Sneeboer fork, Burgon & Ball trowel, or Haws watering can will provide season after season of durability, and can be paired with a multi-pocket garden bag for convenient storage. In spring, heirloom seeds for a new garden of vegetables, flowers, or herbs make a thoughtful gift to tuck inside a greeting card.

For aspiring green thumbs, a grow kit or tool set can be the perfect introduction to gardening. Other garden essentials include a pair of durable, rubber boots or clogs from Hunter or Joules. To complement the boots, leather or canvas gloves and a wide-brimmed hat provide protection from scratches, bugs, and summer sun.

For horticultural enthusiasts, a floral wreath or potted plant brings the garden home. Our favorite living gifts include colorful hydrangeas, fragrant jasmine and lavender, and blooming bulbs for the winter home. Ideal for those who don’t have lots of outdoor space, these planted gifts bring a beautiful garden anywhere.
