Know someone who likes to dig in the dirt for fun? The kind of person who asks for a composter or plants for Mother’s Day or a birthday? (Guilty as charged!) While it may seem like there aren’t many creative gifts out there for gardeners, there truly are! If you’ve ever wondered what to gift the gardener in your life, I have you covered! It’s the Ultimate Gardener Gift Guide!
Gifts that Aren’t Plants
While plants can be a wonderful gift, chances are your gardening giftee many already have a few of those. Step outside the planter and give them something they may not buy themselves. Whether it’s a basket or vase to hold their precious plants or a new addition to the garden space, there are choices to fit all budgets. And 80% of our list comes in at less than $30! That’s a list we can all be happy about.
Most of our list items can be found at Amazon because two-day Prime shipping has changed my life. But if you plan ahead more than I do, then also check out our sweet selections from Magnolia Market, Etsy, and Pottery Barn. And without further ado, here are The Kitchen Garten’s Ultimate Gardener Gift Guide for garden gifts this season!
Gift Guide for Gardeners
- Garden Mama shirt (Magnolia Market– $24)- After a trip to Waco in the spring, I was completely sold on all things Magnolia. This shirt is no exception. It’s super fun and made of incredibly soft cotton. It’s clearly not for the fellas, but if you have a gardening mama, this is perfect!
- Nitrile Coated Garden Gloves– 3 pack (Amazon– $11) I purchased my first pair of these winners at our NC State Fair last year. They are incredibly durable and comfortable to work in. And 3 pairs for $11 is a total bargain!
- Herb Garden Markers– (Amazon– $20) These petite herb markers are perfect for an indoor herb garden. They give a dainty and decorative touch to any container. If you’re looking for larger markers with more impact, try my DIY Garden Markers.
- Gorilla Garden Dump Cart– (Amazon– $69) This garden work horse is perfect for the gardener who doesn’t want to balance or lift a wheelbarrow. The Gorilla Cart easily lifts to dump out the contents. And it’s heavy duty tires make it easy to maneuver through the yard and garden.
- Keep Calm Garden Flag– (Amazon– $18) For many, gardening is a real stress reliever. Why not let the neighborhood know with this cute and simple garden flag? It’s truly worthy of Her Majesty!
- Laguna Vase– (Magnolia Market– $24) What better way to display your garden goodness than with a beautiful vase. These beautifully shaped vases have a slight blue hue which goes with any decor!
- Survival Garden Kit– (Amazon– $16) 15,000 seeds in 32 varieties! This is a vegetable gardeners dream. (If you’re a closet Prepper, then you’ll love this too.) Not only do you get the seeds, but it also comes with a guide on how to store and save future seeds from the plants you grow.
- Corinthian Bells Wind Chimes– (Amazon– $76) This is one of the pricier items on the gift lift, but oh so worth it. I received these Corinthian Bells as a gift for Mother’s Day last year, and their tone is amazing. Gardening and simply being in the yard is a joy with the soothing tones of wind chimes in the background. Corinthian Bells are perfectly tuned and will be a favorite of any outdoor or garden lover.

With specific instructions that make growing vegetables easy and abundant, there’s no better garden gift around. We have two in our garden, and they consistently produce great crops.
- Square-Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholemew- (Amazon– $14) This book revolutionized our kitchen garden.
