Great gardening gifts for everyone
If someone who loves to garden is on your gift list, consider choosing gardening gifts that reflect their love of the outdoors, potted plants and dirty hands! Gardeners love gifts related to gardening, and will count you as a thoughtful and attentive loved one or friend for noticing that they love green, growing things.
Gardening tools make great gardening gifts, especially for a beginning gardener. People who have been digging and planting for years probably already have a supply of tools, but tools with their names on the handles or on the case that holds them make thoughtful personalized gardening gifts. Outdoor sinks or caddies for tools and other gardening paraphernalia are wonderful gardening gifts, as well.
Interesting planters, as long as they go with the outdoor decor of your gardener's home, are good gifts. Maybe you'll find a planter shaped like their favorite breed of cat or dog, or a favorite wildlife animal, or something else that interests them. The gift can do double duty by being gardening-related and incorporating another one of their interests.
Some unique gardening gifts are sculptures with a bit of whimsy or fun, like trolls trying to carry off a pink flamingo, or unusual or colorful garden stepping stones or decorations. These can be personalized gardening gifts, with each of their names and their children's names engraved into one or several stones.
Rain gauges in a variety of shapes and styles look attractive in a yard or garden, particularly if they look part of the general theme. If the person on your gift list has frog statuary throughout her garden, then a rain gauge held by a frog would be an ideal gardening gift. Fairies, dragons, wildlife and other themes lend themselves to a variety of accessories that can enhance the space. Wind spinners, statues, planters, wind chimes and other outdoor accessories incorporating those themes make great gifts for gardening enthusiasts. As they spend lots of time outdoors, they're better able to appreciate these little touches of beauty.
Indoor Gardening Gifts
You can also choose from a variety of indoor gardening gifts. An electronic weather station will help your gardener determine whether it's a day to plant, prune or stay in the house. For bringing some outdoors in, choose vases, pots and plants for indoor gardening gifts that can be enjoyed all year round. Pots, seeds, cuttings and gardening tools to plant an indoor herb garden make great gardening gifts for people who don't just love to plant and grow, but who love to cook as well. Herb pots in interesting shapes or colors, or even with names painted on the sides (either names of herbs, or names of family members) make unique and personalized gardening gifts you'll be remembered for years later.
Unique and novel indoor gardening gifts include eggs that you don't cook for breakfast, but instead you crack open to find a plant inside, and plants that bear messages on their leaves once they grow and unfurl. And don't forget, gardeners love to read about gardening! Books or magazines related to their hobby are always thoughtful gardening gifts.
