Unique Garden Gifts


For seasoned gardeners, unique garden gifts are nearly a must since they most likely already have everything there they need for their gardens. Gift baskets are great, but can also get overwhelming at times since the gift hunter is faced with so many options.

Keep in mind that when giving gifts to gardeners your choices don’t always have to be gardening apparel or gardening tools. It could be something to remind them of their garden or something that reminds them of their garden, for their home or office. Needless to say, most gardeners love anything whimsical, and the things that go along with their gardens may very well be such things as plaques, birds or flowers! Unique garden gifts are great, especially look at choosing to get something personalized. The look of surprise and delight on a gardener’s face upon opening your gift is reason enough for you to spend that extra time to track down that elusive, one-of-a-kind gift for their home or garden.

When choosing unique garden gifts for your loved-ones, begin by thinking of the recipient of the gift and if you’re lucky, have a general sense of what the garden looks like. This will give you an idea what kind of gift you’re searching for. Home and garden stores, locally and even online, sell them by the hundreds so rest assured there will be no shortage of great ideas! Many gardens have themes; some even have color schemes or perhaps a type: it may be flower, herb, rock, vegetable or organic garden. Having an idea of what kind of garden the person has will make your hunt for unique garden gifts a lot easier. Here are some ideas for unique garden gifts to consider:

  • Fountains are great. A garden is never complete without a fountain of any size. Some gardeners even work around the fountain’s theme while others delay purchasing one until the garden is near completion. Just the same, they make unique garden gifts that your gardener will surely love!
  • Garden stakes are among the cutest garden gifts you can give. Designs vary from springy butterflies, lady bugs, pink flamingos, and pinwheels. There are some online stores selling solar powered stakes that light up, change color and give additional glow to the garden.
  • A hammock will surely delight any gardener because it is very easy to install and it provides them a place to rest after a long day of garden work. What could be better than chilling in a hammock while you admire your beautiful work in bloom? You can get either the regular rope hammock or the swing type.
  • Wind chimes, twirlers and weather vanes add charm to any garden and come in all price ranges. Bird feeders will attract birds to visit and hang around the garden for longer periods of time. A huge range of bird houses are available for gardeners that are hopeful that someday a family of birds will come take up residence in their gardens.
  • One favorite and unique gift among gardeners is a decorative planter. These can be clay, concrete, resin, or molded tins or even ceramic pots which give the gardener an additional space to plant and stand out, looking unique and adorable.

There are online shops to check out for gift ideas. However, should you wish to see the gift first before buying, visit local plant nurseries and garden stores near you. These stores are sure to have something for you or at least give you an idea for unique garden gifts.
