Gift Exchange Ideas With Fellow Gardeners

gifts for gardeners: female hands wrapping a red christmas presentGiving gardeners thoughtful and useful gifts is easy! I will provide you with a few ideas for great gifts for fellow gardeners so you can find a touching gift for the important gardener in your life (even if that’s you!).


Multitools are a small collection of tools that usually fold into a rectangular shape and easily fit into your pocket. They typically include cutting implements like scissors, knives, and saws but can also have small hammers and simple screwdrivers.

These make great gifts for gardeners because we often need all those tools in the garden, and having one you can fit in your pocket means you can always find it.


Gardening jackets and aprons make great gifts because they are extra durable and have pockets that are made to carry heavy or delicate things.

They are usually made of canvas to protect your skin and clothes, though you can get them in other materials like denim. You can even get them customized with names or for tasks like gathering eggs.


Gardening gloves provide protection from dirt, thorns, roots, and insects. And they are easily lost.

There are many patterns, and you can get different ones designed for other uses, like aerating soil, pruning, or preventing calluses.


T-Shirts are always fun gifts because you can browse through endless designs, shapes, and colors until you find the perfect one.


It is important to stay hydrated during gardening, so water bottles and cups are useful, and you can find cute gardening-related graphics or sayings. These can also be personalized to add more thought to the gift.


Headwear helps ward off sunburn on our faces and necks and helps keep us cool. They are another gift that you can pick the perfect graphic or pithy statement.


Baskets make great gifts because they can be instrumental in the garden to help carry harvests or supplies and make great home decor.

They come in various materials, shapes, and sizes so that you can find the perfect one.

Subscription Boxes

Consider a subscription box if you are looking for something that keeps the gifting going all year.

Small boxes are delivered to their home once a month. Each box has a theme and includes tools, seeds, or supplies and instructions on how to achieve the goal of the box.

And you can pick boxes that do different things than just vegetable gardening. You can pick houseplants, flowers, or even heirloom seeds to spice things up.

Magazine Subscriptions

Old-fashioned magazine subscriptions make a great gift, too. And you can choose digital options if the receiver of the gift prefers.

7 Garden Gnomes Perfect for Gifting This Holiday Season

I’ve always loved garden gnomes — even after watching the horrifying Goosebumps episode titled ‘Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes” as a kid. The Travelocity gnome is the cutest company mascot ever. And if you’ve never watched Gnomeo and Juliet, I highly recommend you do so immediately. 

Garden gnomes are the ideal garden decoration, in my opinion. They add a touch of whimsy and color without bulk, but they’re sturdy and don’t require any special tools to install. Just pop one in the dirt next to your plants and enjoy it from afar. 

In addition to being attractive garden installations, garden gnomes also make a great gift for your gardening friends. They’re also usually inexpensive and available in a variety of styles. There’s something for everyone — whether you’re looking for a tiny stocking stuffer for a secret Santa exchange or a sentimental gift for a loved one. Here are a few gnome picks to help you shop this holiday season:

THE Garden Gnome

Don’t Forget to Bring Your Gnome in for the Winter

If you’re buying a new gnome for your garden, don’t forget to store it properly for the winter. Even the most durable statue is vulnerable to damage if left in the garden as snow begins to fall. Carefully store your gnomes in a safe location where they’re unlikely to fall or get bumped. If concerned about damage in storage, wrap your precious gnomes in bubble wrap or newspaper.
