The holidays are coming up, and you might be wondering what gifts to purchase. Whenever you receive presents, there are always some that are lackluster or unappealing. Finding items within your budget that is also suited for the gift recipient can be bothersome. If you are looking to buy gifts for a gardener, you might be wondering what items gardeners like. Fortunately, there are a myriad of options available at different price ranges that will encourage their passion for gardening. Below is a list of unique and functional gifts that are sure to put a smile on any gardener’s face, whether they are a beginner or an advanced gardener.
1. Artistic Owl Watering Can
This artistic owl watering can is a functional product suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Often associated with Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, owls are mysterious birds that are considered symbols of wisdom and knowledge, making it ideal for a freethinker or someone that is spiritually attuned. Handcrafted in Bali and powder-coated to help protect the finish, each piece is an original. Perfect for those who love animals, especially birds, this watering can provides a whimsical touch to any garden. Due to its handmade nature, there are variations in color and shape that add to its uniqueness and artisan quality.
2. Worm Composter
Many people find the process of making compost tedious or have fears of odors. With Vego Garden’s worm composter, you can decrease household waste and create your own soil for gardening. If you know someone with a raised garden bed, this worm composter is the perfect addition, allowing them to compost right inside existing Vego garden beds. The worm composter can hold roughly 8 gallons of food waste and is buried 11 inches deep, leaving 6 inches exposed for easy access and air circulation.
This product utilizes the power of vermicomposting, or worm composting, to break down waste into rich organic matter without the time and hassle of traditional composting systems. It is made from an injection mold of durable, polypropylene plastic meant for use in an outdoor environment. The small holes in the exposed 6 inches of the composter reduce odor and improve ventilation, which encourages odorless microbes to help decompose the soil. The result is an efficient, odorless process that creates nitrogen-rich compost that mimics the natural environment of a forest floor.
3. Gardening Scissors
Gardeners can never have enough gardening scissors. This gardening scissor is ideal for weeding, pruning, and harvesting your plants, allowing you to make precise cuts without damaging stems and branches. It is equipped with high-grade, stainless-steel blades for precision cutting, suitable for a wide variety of gardening tasks, such as trimming or harvesting herbs, flowers, house plants, or hydroponics. To ensure safety, it features a secure locking mechanism that keeps your blades protected and closed when not in use. Costing about $12, this is a good choice for those that are more budget conscious.
4. Sun Hat
Sun hats are essential for gardeners to protect themselves from the sun’s damaging rays, especially those that live in scorching or dry climates. The Milani hat is an inexpensive gardening hat that provides sun protection and is rated SPF 50+. The adjustable drawstring cord makes it easy to wear and adjust the fit. As it is easy to get dirty when gardening, a durable hat that can be easily washed is necessary. Made from 100% cotton and machine-washable, this hat is economical and sturdy so there will be no qualms about getting it dirty. Although it is marketed for women, its gender-neutral appearance allows it to be worn by males.
5. Glow & Grow Candle Grow Kit
While candles are generally unpopular as gifts, this trendy candle grow kit is an innovative product that will far outlast the usefulness of ordinary candles. After the soy blend candles, which are made from nature-inspired scents, have burned out, the ceramic vessel can be used as a planter. Depending on your preference, you can choose seeds for growing daisies, basil, or aloe.
The Herb Garden candle features aromas of fresh basil, ginger, and lemon zest with warm clove. Desert Oasis candle contains lemongrass, aromatic sage clary, and coconut grounded by warm cedarwood. Wildflower Candle features scents of green geranium, lilac, and eucalyptus grounded by warm rosewood. All of the kits include non-GMO seeds, soilless growing medium, plant food, and activated carbon.
6. Raised Garden Bed
Giving a gardener a good quality raised garden bed is the best way to show that you care. Raised garden beds are available in numerous styles, shapes, and materials, making them suitable for gardeners of all skill sets. Offering a wide variety of benefits, they deter weeds from creeping into your garden soil, reduce soil compaction, improve drainage and serve as a barricade to pests. They also ease the strain of bending when harvesting and tending plants.
You should purchase your garden beds from a reputable vendor to ensure quality and longevity. For superior performance and style, we recommend Vego Garden bed kits. Available in many different shapes and sizes, our garden beds can accommodate any type of mobility and are perfect for all your growing needs.

7. Garden Stickers
You can decorate your raised garden bed with these cute Vego garden stickers, which are made from high quality 3M materials that will last a long time. These stickers are ideal for kids or student gardens. They come in three design sets: garden creature kits, veggie kits, and Vego Garden logos. If you are feeling generous, you can gift them as an addition to the garden bed.
8. Gardener's Harvest Basket
After you have picked your produce, you will want to wash off the dirt. This mesh basket at Uncommon Goods will allow you to wash your fruits and vegetables before bringing them inside. The mesh holes allow the water to drain without collecting and spoiling the harvest. The sturdy pine and hardwood carrier is treated to withstand repeated washing and outdoor elements. Sturdy yet lightweight, it has a naturalistic aesthetic and can comfortably hold 20 pounds. Buy this basket for a gardener that is self-sufficient and grows a lot of their own produce.
9. Gardening Tool Set
If you are buying for a beginner gardener, a useful gift would be an inclusive gardening tool set to help them pursue their new gardening project. They often come in ten or twelve-piece sets, and are ideal for those who enjoy gardening as a hobby or need the basic tools to get started. This set comes with a multi-compartment tote and gloves, along with essential tools such as a transplanter, pruner, rake, weeding fork, and sprayer. The tools are designed with an ergonomic handle that provides comfort and reduces stress on the hands and fingers.
10. Succulent Planting Set
Not everyone may have the space or preference for outdoor gardening. Succulents, a common element featured in home and style magazines, have significantly increased in their popularity as indoor plants. The Ginsco mini garden tool, found on Amazon, is perfect for gardeners who enjoy growing succulents or other small indoor plants. For detailed instructions on succulent watering and care, read this article.
It is still important to understand how to care for succulents properly, including their watering requirements. You should not use a spray bottle as it is ineffective in completely soaking the soil and tends to wet the leaves and damage them. The Ginsco kit is ideal for all your garden needs, such as digging, weeding, loosening soil, aerating and transplanting. It includes a watering bottle that allows you to water the plants at their roots, which reduces the risk of overwatering. Under $10, this is a budget friendly option that will not deplete your bank account.
