Make your favourite green-fingered person happy this festive season with our best Christmas gifts for Gardeners.
Firstly, let me formally apologise for my use of the C word at this point in the year, but if you’re a gardener you’ll be used to planning ahead. And if you’re not a gardener, you will be on the back foot here, so it’s better to find out about the best Christmas gifts for gardeners now!
Best Christmas Gifts for Gardeners
Ok, I’ll level with you, I understand it can be pretty difficult to buy Christmas presents for gardeners when they squeal at a particularly good pile of horse manure, or a couple of pallet collars going free.
Part of the fun of being a gardener is repurposing things to use on your allotment and trying to do things in a way that is as un-consumerist as possible. But that doesn’t help much when it comes to buying for them. So I’m here to help; because there are a few things that even organic gardeners would be very happy to receive!
So let’s dig in and find out why organic gardeners really want to find under their home-grown Christmas trees!
It might not look like much to the untrained eye; but to us organic gardeners this is the Cadillac of hoes! This really is one of the best Christmas gifts for gardeners.
It’s made from sustainably-sourced wood, with a nice long handle to prevent backache and its brilliant oscillating head makes light work of even the toughest weeds. It might be a little inconspicuous in your present pile, but I guarantee they will thank you.
This seasonal guide to 2022 is not only useful but also provides some very decent shelf candy. It’s beautifully written and insightful and contains lots of helpful information that even your favorite organic gardener doesn’t know.
Not only that but if it goes down well, you’re set for life on gift ideas – thank me later!
What’s your beloved gardeners’ favorite thing? You? Nope, guess again; it’s worms. That’s right, worms. They won’t admit this of course, but if you want to stand a chance of being as highly regarded as worms, this is a good place to start.
Allow them to turn kitchen scraps into compost and natural fertilizer for their gardens all whilst playing with worms! What’s not to love?
These Japanese secateurs are just the absolute gold standard of gardening tools. They are sharper than the entire gardener’s question time panel and unlike the GQT panel are built to last.
As I write this I am fighting the urge to get up and just go and visit mine and hold them. If it were socially acceptable to walk around with secateurs in your pocket, these would go with me everywhere. They even come in a sexy box. It’s a gardener’s Christmas dream.
If you don’t have a huge budget but you want to get the perfect present for your favorite gardener, these slate plant labels ought to do it!
These tags are bound to be a hit as they are reusable, organic, and beautiful! Bound to make any garden look high-end. These beauties would make a great stocking filler.
The best gift for gardeners that are always playing in the dirt; Muckboots are the most recommended gardening boot, and New York Magazine’s “Best Gardening Boot”.
They are hard-wearing, comfortable and really easy on the eyes! I switched to Muckboots a few years ago and have never looked back. I use them for literally everything from hiking to food shopping. they are available for men, women and children so it doesn’t matter what shape or size your favourite gardener is – you’ll be able to find them a muckboot.
If books are more their thing, this new release is sure to please. Published in September 2022 Adam Alexander takes us on a beautiful journey through the history of vegetables and growing. It’s an insightful and inquisitive book that is sure to inspire.
If you’re not a gardener it may not sound like your thing, but trust me, for gardeners, this is brilliant!
Arming them with such a formidable weapon may not seem like a good idea, but when you find out how versatile this tool is, you’ll be left wanting one yourself! It starts out looking like a knife, a good one at that, which is really helpful in the garden. But it also works as a trowel, it’s great for bulb planting, trimming roots, hoeing weeds and lots of other jobs.
It also comes with a super cool canvas sheath which means your gardener can wear it on your belt and NOBODY will mess with them. The chances are, if they don’t have one of these, their Christmas list. And if they don’t want one, it’s probably just because they don’t know they exist yet!
Being on an allotment can get a little cold sometimes and an endless supply of tea is often needed to keep you going. This kettle is the ultimate in outdoor geekery. It uses a clever funnel system to heat water really quickly using only fire.
Using dead leaves and wood from around the garden or allotment, your lucky gardener will never run out of hot water for a brew. They’re likely to become very popular at the allotment with one of these on the go. Bonus points for this one as it’s also great for camping! There are even upgrades available so you can use it to cook dinner too.
Ok, so this one might not fit in their stocking, but it’s guaranteed to make them feel the festive cheer! This nifty little greenhouse can fit into almost any garden and provides a surprising amount of space for raising seedlings.
For a gardener, this simple thing will not only hold a promise of spring in the dark of winter but also help them achieve their best garden ever the following year. How’s that for the best gift ever?!
