If you’re looking for Christmas gifts for gardeners, you’re in the right place. I would say that gardeners are one of the easiest groups of people to buy for at Christmas. There’s so much to choose from: accessories, plants, fashion – the list goes on!

So whether you’ve got a family member, friend or work colleague to buy for this Christmas, here are 10 fabulous gardening gifts that they’re sure to love:

1. Jennings Decorative Large Garden Penguin

Christmas gifts for gardeners

Christmas decor doesn’t have to stay in the house! If your gift recipient loves to decorate their garden, then this adorable penguin is a must-have.

However, penguins aren’t just for Christmas. This little fella can be enjoyed all year round. Tuck him in the midst of border plants, or place him right by the back door. Either way, he’ll be very happy!

2. Thompson & Morgan Woodland Cyclamen Planter

Christmas gifts for gardeners

As any Plant Geek would agree, you can never have enough plants. This Woodland Planter comes complete with a gorgeous Cyclamen boasting pretty pink blooms.

The planter itself is made in the shape of a cute little woodland house. You have the option of a ladybird themed house, or a tiny fairy for a more whimsical-themed garden.

3. Richard Jackson’s Gardeners Gift Crackers

These aren’t just any old gift crackers that you’d find at your local supermarket. These contain a set of robust Flower Power branded snips which are the perfect size for use indoors and out.

4. Plants 2 Gardens Lemon Tree on Trellis

Any fan of the Grow Your Own movement will love a lemon tree as a gift. They’ll be able to grow a beautiful plant, whilst also creating delicious fruit that they’ll be able to enjoy year after year. Who knows, they might even invite you round for some fresh lemonade as a thank you…

5. Solithia Decorative Solar Lantern

Christmas gifts for gardeners

Light up the garden path with this beautiful solar lantern. Not just a standard outdoor light, this will create stunning patterns across the garden come nightfall, and it looks just as stylish during the day.

Help your loved one add ambience to their garden by giving this lantern as a gift. Its hardwearing metal means it’s longlasting, so you’ll be able to enjoy it together for years to come.

6. Grumpy Gardener Set Of 2 Secateurs

Christmas gifts for gardeners

What’s better than one secateur? Two secateurs, of course! And even better when they come equipped with a swivel-powered mechanism to make pruning effortless.

These secateurs make perfect gifts for first time gardeners whose hands haven’t yet hardened from years of backyard botany – or, conversely, those who have spent more years in the garden than they can count!

Buy them here for £19.50

7. Richard Jackson Hand Care Gift Set

Christmas gifts for gardeners

Another one for tired hands, this hand care gift set features a rosemary, lemon and thyme soap as well as a lemongrass hand cream for soft and well-scented hands.

Also included is a pretty, scallop-edged plant pot which would look a dream on any windowsill!

Buy it here for £15

8. Thompson & Morgan Seed Grow Kit Rainbow Veg & Rainbow Salad Collection

Christmas gifts for gardeners

This is another great gift for those who like to ‘grow their own’, but this time it’s from scratch! Choose from a rainbow vegetable or rainbow salad kit – both create amazing produce which can be harvested and eaten.

These kits are ideal for those who want to kickstart their gardening hobby, who like to dabble in growing plants, or experienced gardeners who want a fun side project to add to their collection.

9. Primus Set of 3 Outdoor Giant Metal Lily Garden Stakes

Christmas gifts for gardeners

I’ve raved lots about these fantastic giant metal Lilies – but that’s because they really make a great addition to any garden! Not only are they hardwearing and low maintenance, they’re also perfect for gardeners who have cats (if you didn’t know, cats are allergic!)

These Lilies come in sets of three, and you have the option of buying them in pink or white! Personally, I’d buy six, then mix and match!

Buy them here for £40

10. Set of 3 Metallic Water Resistant Pull Cord Lightbulbs with Remote Control

Christmas gifts for gardeners

Last, but definitely not least are these insanely versatile lightbulbs. Shatterproof, weatherproof and water resistant, these lightbulbs make excellent lighting around the home or garden.

They can be strung up in the garden for a bit of ambience, hung in a cupboard for some handy lighting, or even taken camping! Your Christmas giftee will certainly adore this practical present.
