Perfect Christmas Gifts for Gardeners

Buying gifts for a gardener is actually relatively easy - you know they’ll make use of a new kneeler, gloves or a trowel - but finding unique and original gardening gifts can be trickier.

Buying gifts for a gardener is actually relatively easy - you know they’ll make use of an ordinary kneeler, gloves or trowel - but finding unique and original gardening gift ideas can be trickier, especially as many retailers seem to think that by putting a pretty floral pattern on a basic item somehow makes it better (unsurprisingly it usually doesn't).

So why not delight the gardener in your life this Christmas or birthday, with a thoughtful, creative gardening gift from The Worm That Turned? We really go the extra mile and test the items with real gardeners and standby our edited selection of which we are very proud.

Garden in Luxury

Most gardeners don’t seem to like to treating themselves, even if they will lavish gifts on others, so go for a little luxe!

They may think the item 'too good' to use in the garden, but actually you'll be doing them a favour as our gifts don't just look good but they are frequently selected on their 'heirloom' quality, meaning that you might even be left it in their will!

For instance, these beautifully-designed Sophie Conran for Burgon and Ball garden tools come gift-boxed and are specially designed for a smaller hand. Crafted from rust-resistant stainless steel and waxed beech wood, the scoop, dibber and secateurs would make a lovely gift set.

View our full Sophie Conran range here and if you need any advice about suitability give us a ring to discuss it. We're used to discussing gardening items with non-gardeners, so don't be shy!

Quality Essentials

Our Galvanised Watering Can is so much more delightful than the plastic alternative. It’s ergonomically designed and adds a certain style and panache to a daily task!

If the gardener in your life has lots of pots in various parts of their garden, they'll surely appreciate this beauty even though you know they've already got a can of some description. Canny gardeners will keep a few cans 'ready loaded' dotted around for when they are pottering.

And to make it even more appreciated, why not put a few little surprise gifts inside such as some special seeds from our selection.

If you are unsure as to what seed to buy try our 5 pack Italian seed selection and you won't go far wrong. (Oh, by the way, this pack also makes an excellent gardeners stocking filler - and if you really want to butter them up put them in this faux fur stocking )

Handpicked Hamper

To ensure your gift is extra special, why not put together a bespoke hamper for your keen gardener? Pack our Gardener’s Tool Bag or one of our traditional fruit crates with a hand-picked gift selection.

Both the crate and the bag have excellent after-use in the garden and thus are much more practical than a traditional hamper. Alternatively this Royal Sussex Trug is a gift in it's own right but could also be the hamper of their dreams.

To get you started, we recommend a pair of comfortable, hard-wearing gloves, our vintage cutlery herb markers, a Bee and Butterfly Seedmat to encourage beautiful wildlife to the garden and this soothing Gardener’s Handcare Kit.

Don’t forget to pop in a few stocking fillers too!

Alternatively if you don't have the time, choose from one of our exclusive luxury gift sets or call us to put together a selection for you.

Bring the Outdoors In

Of course, gifts for gardeners do not have to be exclusively for use outdoors. These garden-themed gifts will put a smile on a gardener’s face and provide enjoyment indoors too.

Pop a couple of stems in our quirky Cactus Vases for an eye-catching and unusual gift! Cactus are bang on trend at the moment and these vases are ideal for single stems. We have a variety of sizes available.

The vintage-style Watering Can Cruet Set is gift-boxed and would make a thoughtful and useful addition to any gardener’s table. They are a weighty, quality set. The salt/pepper is dispensed from the top of the can.

At the end of a busy day outdoors, what gardener wouldn’t appreciate the sight of one of our hinged Glass Keepsake Photograph Frames - perfect to display pressed flowers and leaves, vintage garden-themed prints or even photos of their own garden.

The Wow Factor!

If you want to go ‘all out’, choose a gift with maximum impact!

A keen gardener with an eye for design quality will find our retro Roy Cocoon Lounge Chair a beautifully-crafted, comfortable spot from which to admire their work. It is designed to withstand even the harshest of British weather so can be left outdoors all year round.

Our large Black Case Metal Wall Clock is a statement piece and is both functional and stunning.

For a fun addition to the garden, why not give the gift of constant companionship, with our Cast Iron Pigs? Frost-proof and very cheap to feed, they are certainly the perfect gift for the gardener who has everything!

If you need some more inspiration use the 'flying menu' by 'hovering' your mouse pointer over 'for the gardener' tab on our home page to narrow down your selection.

What's your ideal garden gift? - we would love to hear what you think of our suggestions.
