We all have that friend or relative who spends their free time rooting around in the garden. So, when shopping for a holiday gift for the special gardener in your life, it makes perfect sense to lean into this hobby. Whether they grow flowers, produce, or prefer to garden indoors, we’ve got some thymeless gift options for them. Turnip the holiday spirit with these fun products with absolutely no thorns involved.
Even though gardening is wonderful for the soul, it can be hard on the body. A dump cart does the work of a wheelbarrow and wagon in one super convenient design. Help your buddy's garden and save their back. Awesome!
Know someone who loves plants and books? These literary plant markers are so darn cute they’ll have the recipient wetting their plants. Each one features a punny book title, like “Rosemary and Juliet and “Of Mice and Mint.” They can use them to mark their outdoor garden or inside their potted plants.
Tool belts are great, but what about a tool seat? This handy folding stool is a great place for your favorite gardener to sit while tending to their plants, but what makes it so special is the detachable tool bag. We love comfort and convenience, and this awesome gift checks both boxes!
I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many novelty mugs, and this one just about made me spit out my coffee when I first saw it. The mug looks just like a terra cotta clay pot and reads “GARDENER of the year” on it. Oh, and did I mention it comes with a spoon that’s shaped just like a shovel? You can’t get much cuter than that.
Playing in the dirt all the time can lead to dry, cracked hands. Gardeners Hand Therapy is a thoughtful gift that’s designed to hydrate and protect those hardworking hands. And unlike other bath product gifts, this one is especially for gardeners (although it works for everyone and anyone, so don’t let that deter you from snagging a tube for yourself).
A cushioned kneeling pad is on every gardener gift guide for a good reason: they’re handy. Your loved one can use it to protect their knees while gardening. It can also double as a helpful tool during exercise, camping, and other everyday tasks. This one is amazing because it’s water-resistant and won’t compress over time. As a bonus, it comes in tons of cute colors to match the rest of the gardening supplies.
An indoor hydroponic herb garden can be a fun project for the gardener who gets antsy during the winter months when their plants are dormant. This contained system doesn’t require soil or sun and also doesn’t take up a lot of space indoors.
These solar lights give any garden a sense of the mystical; best of all, they don't have to be plugged in. You'll want to get a few bunches of them for bigger impact, but even a small cluster can brighten an evening in the garden.
Garden baubles and décor is always a great choice when looking for gardening gifts, particularly if you don’t know what the person already has or doesn’t. These vibrant wind chimes are great for someone with a wildflower garden or anyone who loves a pop of color. But what’s even more beautiful than the outward appearance is their whimsical sound in the breeze.
Fairy gardens aren’t just for kids. If your bestie is into fantastical creatures and has an enchanted garden vibe, little figurines and accessories can be great gifts. This kit includes a miniature fairy door, two windows, and a realistic and weatherproof little lamp post.
Stepping stones don’t just add a beautiful aesthetic to a garden, they’re also super functional. Your friend can place it in their garden so they know exactly where to step or kneel while tending to the plants, and every time they see it, they’ll be reminded of your friendship and love.
