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 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 selection to delight your green-thumbed recipient.

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 garden tools are gift-boxed and 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 Dark Green 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! The powder coated steel is much more durable, and the oval shape cleverly stops your recipient from constantly banging their knees as they carry it.

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 herb scissors, 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 Japanese Ikebana Flower Bowl for an eye-catching and unusual gift! They are a gorgeous, unique way of displaying cuttings and these bowls are ideal for single stems.

The Complete Houseplant Care Gift Set is beautifully packaged and would make a thoughtful and useful addition to any houseplant gardener’s tool kit. They are natural and support the healthy growth of your recipients prized houseplants.

The Wow Factor! 

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 Rusty Garden 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.
