Creative Gifts for Gardeners


In many cases, Gardeners are a little difficult to buy for. Are you shopping for a family member or a friend with a green thumb? Are you looking for the best gardening gifts for gardeners who have it all? Or, are you looking for gift that is well-thought-out and unique? Whether you’re shopping for an avid gardener or beginner gardeners, this is the shopping list for you! Most of us gardeners have lots of tools and gloves, although I’m never opposed to receiving more. The gift ideas for Gardeners that I’m sharing are not your run-of-the-mill garden tools, they are unique and creative gifts for gardeners, and some are even handcrafted.

Many of these gifts are priced under $20 and are perfect for those of us on a tight budget. Oh, and it’s totally fine if your favorite gardener is you; if you catch my drift. I won’t tell.

Personalized Gifts for Gardeners

Personalized items make the perfect gift! It means you actually put some thought into the gift and went to the effort of ordering it early enough for personalization.

Etsy has some of the most unique, personalized gifts for gardeners. With these metal garden signs, you have a choice of various materials – like rust or galvanized.

Personalized Garden Sign from Etsy

Anything that’s says “Nana” pulls at my heartstrings, like this cute garden stone. There are lots of garden stones with grandparent sentiments at Etsy. These make great Christmas gifts, Mother’s Day gifts or Father’s Day gifts!

The items listed above also make great stocking stuffers or the perfect small gift.

Here are some fun done-for-you gift boxes and seed kits from Etsy:

I think pretty much any gardener would love this gift set. 

Here’s a super fun gift – Succulents & Cactus Seed Starter Kit for a gardener when they can’t get outdoors.

Plant Markers Make Unique Gifts for Gardeners

Plant tags or plant markers are a wonderful gift choice. I’ve always wanted to make something like these custom Herb Garden Markers. I’ll never get around to making them, so I’m adding them to my Wish List.

Most flower gardeners love fancy plant tags to keep track of their favorite plants. Plant tags are good in a vegetable garden too. Don’t forget the paint marker to go with the tags.

Jewelry for Gardeners

What about jewelry for gardeners. These are so cute!

Love the bracelet too.

I get so many comments and compliments on this cute “Garden Hair Don’t Care” hat.

Garden clogs or sun hats are also good choices.

Puzzles for Gardeners

Puzzles are perfect for rainy days, or for days when a gardener can’t be in their garden. 

Garden Signs are creative gifts for gardeners and handmade ones are even better. We love gardens signs so much that we have an entire post dedicated to them. Check it out when you’ve finished up here.


Solar Lights

Solar lights make great gifts for gardeners. These mason jar solar lights add so much character and charm to my flower beds. I’ve had these for 2 years and they still light up.

More Rustic Solar Lights

These lantern style solar lights add so much whimsy and ambience to the garden. They can be hung on tree branches, on shepherd’s hooks or used on a table top. Check out The Best Rustic Solar Lights for more solar lighting ideas.

Whimsical Gifts for Gardeners

This sweet little Sophie statute has had a place in my gardens for several years now. Her skirt can be filled with water or bird seed too.


I love this adorable Frog Solar Light and it’s on my wish list this year. There’s a super cute, matching Snail Solar Light too.

Most gardeners don’t like seeing real rabbits in our gardens, but we all love a bunny statute and these little guys are so cute together!

The standing bunny.


And, the sitting bunny. The standing bunny and the sitting bunny are available as a pair also.

Add personality to a garden with this hilarious tree face.

Practical Gifts for Gardeners

No matter their skill level, every gardener would enjoy receiving a useful gardening tool or the best set of hand tools. You can never go wrong with new tools. Here is a list of Essential Gardening Tools, if you’d rather buy tools for your gardener. The tools that made the cut in this post are just a few of my personal favorites and are highly rated by other gardeners who have purchased them.

A rain gauge is a great choice for all garden lovers.

This is a goofy looking stool, but I love mine. I wouldn’t get it for someone that has balance issues and it does require some leg strength, but it’s perfect for a gardener that can’t kneel anymore.

This kneeling pad looks amazing. I’m pretty sure it’s going on my wish list.


No matter the age of your gardener, you can’t go wrong with a garden kneeler.


Many gardeners are also bird lovers. Check out this list of the best gifts for backyard bird watchers. It includes lots of ideas, like bird feeders, or bird houses and many more ideas.
