Looking for the perfect holiday gifts for the gardeners in your life? Or maybe you’re looking for some neat gardening gear to put on your own wish list (no judgment…us too!) Whoever you’re shopping for, our 2022 Gardeners’ Gift Guide has something for every gardener!
Translate your garden plan from Planter into your garden with the handy Seeding Square! This nifty square has color-coded holes to help you sow the seeds of your favorite plants following recommended per-square-foot spacings. The graduated dibber helps to ensure your seeds are planted at the right depth, too.
The best socks to garden in are usually boring old black socks (they never get dirty!) But gardening-themed socks make for a fun holiday gift that lets the recipient show off their passion for gardening even when they’re not in the garden!
Serious gardeners will love this Roo gardening apron. It’s not just any old apron with pockets- it opens at the bottom allowing you to quickly offload a large harvest into a wash bin or storage container. This is a must-have for gardeners that grow lots of tomatoes, peppers, or squash.
Garden Tool Set
If your giftee is just starting out with gardening, snap up a handy garden tool set for them! A basic but sturdy set like this one from Friskars is perfect for new gardeners.
Indoor Hydroponic Garden
How do you scratch that gardening itch during the winter? Move the garden indoors, of course! AeroGarden Hydroponic Gardens are easy to use and will provide fresh herbs, lettuce, or even cherry tomatoes year-round!
Mini greenhouses are great for protecting tender seedlings and plants from harsh winds, driving rain, and chilly-ish weather, or for an indoor seed-starting setup. For outdoor use, be sure to weigh the mini greenhouse down (or otherwise secure it to the ground or a fence) and use extra fastenings to hold down the shelves.
Gardeners can always make use of an extra set of garden labels to help keep track of seedlings and plants. Garden labels make a great stocking-stuffer!
Spending a lot of time in the garden means a lot of potential for sun exposure. This Einskey gardening hat is inexpensive, but it stands up to the elements. After a full season of daily use, the only noticeable wear is a slight color fading. The under-the-chin drawstring may not be the most fashionable choice, but it’s a lifesaver on windy days!
A garden trug is a super-handy flexible basin for harvesting, washing produce, lugging around compost and soil- or just about anything really! They are available in a wide variety of sizes and colors so be sure to choose the one that’s right for your intended recipient (or yourself!)
This compact soil sieve is great for sifting soil and compost, and you can also use it for rinsing off your veggies! It’s not the biggest sieve on the market, but it’s the perfect size for sifting potting mix for seed starting and for sifting soil in smaller garden spaces.
A comfortable kneeling pad is a must-have for gardeners. Having a kneeling pad helps tackle long weeding, seeding, and transplanting sessions without getting scraped up knees. Gardeners who have trouble kneeling may prefer a garden seat instead.
Even if your recipient mostly gardens in-ground or in raised beds, every avid gardener can make use of fabric grow bags. Great for patio gardening, these bags are lightweight and easy to move around, so plants can be repositioned as needed throughout the season. Grow bags have very good drainage, so make sure your giftee knows to keep an eye on watering.
