15 Savvy Handpicked Gifts for Gardners

Gifts for gardeners

This raised garden bed is perfect for any space. It can go on a small balcony or in a big back yard. It is already divided into separate areas and is also self watering.

This field notebook is the gift gardeners didn’t know they needed. This notebook with graph lined sheets is perfect for both note taking and graphing out your garden. I use my notebooks year after year to build my gardens.

If you know anyone who grows roses, these gloves are a must. I always thought that a basic garden glove would be good for the rose garden, but I was so wrong. These are so needed to handle the thorns.

I love growing my own herbs. While I use them fresh, I also dry them for use year round. I love this drying rack because it is collapsible and easy to move to the perfect location. It also offers four tiers for keeping herbs separate as they dry.

Year round, these hand pruners are always in my pocket. I use them for all types of garden chores…from pruning and harvesting to opening all sorts of things and trimming lines. These are so easy to use. One of my favorite gifts for gardeners.

Keeping track of all that is happening in the garden will help make your garden grow better and better each year. This gardening journal has everything you need to record and items you didn’t know you needed to think about. Plus, it is a pretty journal.

While I love gardening, I am the first to admit is it hard on the hands. And it’s not always easy finding the ideal hand lotion. I really like this one with vitamin E and suggest getting a couple of bottles for a gift – one for the garden and one for the house.
