3 Unique Gardening Gifts For The Gardener In Your Life

#1. A Seed Catalog Gift Certificate

Gardeners love seed catalogs – so give them the gift of seed!

When it comes to gardening gifts, this is my absolute favorite! There isn’t a gardener around that doesn’t get excited when a new seed catalog arrives in the mail.

There is something exhilarating about flipping through all of the incredible varieties of plants – dreaming about what new plant to try this year.

So why not give them a gift certificate to one of their favorite catalogs, and let them indulge on a few seeds or plants they might otherwise have never tried. Best of all, they will remember you every time they see it growing!  For a few catalog ideas – check out our article : The Best Garden Seed Catalogs For Winter Reading.

#2 A Gift Of Garden Labor

Helping a friend on planting day, or for a few hours of weeding !

They say that the best gift of all is the gift of time. So why not give a little of it to your gardening friend?

What gardener wouldn’t love a little help in the Spring at planting time? Or perhaps a few hours in mid-summer to help weed or harvest.

Take a few moments to create a little personalized certificate to present them with the a future gift of labor this holiday season.

Not only does your gardening friend get a little help, but a little companionship in the garden as well. And who knows – you may learn a few gardening secrets too! 

#3 The Farmers Almanac

for 225 straight years, the Farmer’s Almanac has entertained gardeners

Nothing screams nostalgic gardening like the Farmer’s Almanac. Just like the seed catalogs, the Farmer’s Almanac is a great read to get gardeners through the dreary months of winter!

First published way back in 1818,  the Farmers Almanac has long been famous for its annual weather predictions. But it also has great stories and advice on gardening, cooking and more. It makes the perfect gift for a gardening fanatic.

Yes, it’s true. There isn’t anything in the almanac that you can’t find on-line. But honestly, there is just something so cool about having the actual book in hand.  And at around $15 – it’s a great value.

Here is to wishing all of the gardeners around the world a Merry Christmas! Happy Gardening!
