Even if they’re surrounded by snowdrifts, the gardener in your life is already thinking about gardening. Likely, they’re planning next year’s garden. Why not give your favorite gardener a Christmas gift to reflect their passion? Gardening is a soulful hobby. A gardener is easy to please. Anything that reminds them of digging and gardening in rich, dark soil makes a thoughtful Christmas gift for the gardener.
Herb garden kit
It’s winter and the gardener is longing to get their hands into the soil. A window herb garden kit will keep them from getting cabin fever in the months ahead. Purchase seeds, miniature pots and soil as a Christmas gift for the gardener.
Gloves and apron
A pair of gardening gloves and an apron make a thoughtful Christmas gift for the gardener. A gardeners hands suffer much abuse when weeding and planting. Gloves and an apron are a present that will make this hobby more pleasant.
Even with gloves on, the hands of a gardener can become dry and chapped. Sometimes a gardener is uncomfortable in gloves as well. Consider a stocking stuffer of a good lotion for the gardener. I recommend corn huskers lotion or bag balm.
The fingernails of a gardener are often filled with gardening soil and plant residue. A manicure or manicure set would be a nice present for the gardener who cares about their appearance.
A set of nice hand tools is always useful as a Christmas gift. No matter how many trowels you have, they are difficult to find when needed. Try giving this present with a nice tote or back to keep their tools in.
Knee pads will keep the gardener from scraping up their knees while weeding or hand gardening. This Christmas gift also adds cushion for their comfort.
Protect the gardener from the sun with a stocking stuffer of sunscreen. Consider a hat for the gardener as well to keep the heat at a tolerable level.
The gardener has a messy job. A boot and shoe scraper might be a welcome Christmas gift for them. Less time cleaning floors means more time in the garden.
BPA-free water bottle
A gardener should keep hydrated. Gardening is strenuous physical activity. A nice water bottle or cooler is a caring present for the gardener.
Surely the gardener does not know everything there is to know about their hobby. How about a nice gardening book as a present to further educate them?
