When it comes to choosing Christmas gifts, some people are especially hard to buy for. But, for gardening enthusiasts, the good news is you’re spoiled for choice. Here are a few garden gifts ideas to consider for all Christmas gardeners.
Plant pots come in really handy for any gardener, and with a wide range of colours, styles and sizes to choose from, you can’t go wrong. Make the pot that bit more appealing, however, by planting it with seasonal flowers, such as heuchera, grasses, cyclamen or hellebores, for an attractive Christmas garden display.
If the gift bearer has an artificial grass garden, the pots can even be placed on the fake grass to create a visually pleasing effect. Even better, artificial grass won’t cause unsightly yellow marks when items are placed on it, unlike real grass.
Herb growing kits
Gardeners increasingly understand the importance of attracting wildlife to their plot, where they act as important pollinators and can keep unwanted pests under control. Therefore, wildlife-inspired garden gifts will readily get the thumbs up this Christmas, with plenty of options to choose from. Think birdhouses, bug hotels, feeders or wildlife-friendly seeds.
Time to relax
Gardening is as much about enjoying the space as getting stuck in, so treat your gardening friend to a gift that lets them soak up the splendours of their plot. A weatherproof beanbag or outdoor cushion is a really novel gift idea, but other options include a BBQ, garden-inspired mug, nature book, outdoor candle, solar lights or attractive garden decoration.
If your gardening friend is in a bit of a rut with their plot, they’ll be over the moon with a garden tour gift. There are various options to choose from, so take a look online. From largely stately homes to smaller gardens, a gift tour experience is sure to give your gardening pal some welcome ideas and inspiration to use back in their own space.
