Gifts For The Gardener Who Has Everything
Gardening books make great gifts
All New Square Foot Gardening II: The Revolutionary Way to Grow More in Less Space This is one of the most popular gardening books on Amazon. Mel Bartholomew has revolutionized gardening in small places, making his book a great gift for gardeners everywhere.
No matter where you garden, this book has suggestions for anyone wanting to grow food, be it a backyard, a small patch in the front yard, a balcony, or a narrow path next to your house.
If your garden gift recipient has small children (or grandchildren), this book also explains how to make gardening fun for kids.
Filled with beautifully colored pictures, this book will give your gardener hours of pleasure even during times when gardening is not feasible.
There are many other beautiful gardening books you can gift: for example, this book about vertical gardening goes into great detail explaining which vegetables and flowers do best in a vertical garden.
For a flower lover, Cut Flower Garden is overflowing with breathtaking flower arrangements and gorgeous flowers photography, all arranged by season. It’s also full of flower growing tips and even has step-by-step instructions for luxurious garlands, simple centerpieces, and romantic floral décor.
Weeds are every gardener’s nemesis, and Weedless Gardening might be one of the most lasting gifts you can give. This book explains mulch, compost, cover crops, drip irrigation, layouts and more. If you can help a gardener keep their garden beds free of weeds, you’ll give them one of the best gifts possible.
A gardener journal and planner is beautiful and helpful
Keeping a garden journal will help a new gardener (Who am I kidding? Any gardener!) remember what worked in the garden and what didn’t. It could save them from planting in the wrong spot, or with the wrong companion. Or, it could help them repeat an amazing bumper crop that surprised them this year.
Every gardener needs to keep track of their actions in the garden: seeds, planting dates, garden layout, successes a failures, etc.
Here are just a couple of gardening journals/planners. And , of course, don’t forget to add a garden inspired pen or pencil case to complete the package. What a beautiful gift!
If you’re crafty, you can design your own personalized journal: that would be a fun project to do with your children on a rainy weekend.
Personalized garden markers are so special!
If you really want to do something unique for your gardener friend, make some personalized garden markers. They can be quite easy to do: buy a set of craft wooden spoons, paint them with acrylic paint and then write your message with a paint pen. Finally, spray them with a clear acrylic sealer to keep them safe from the elements.
If you don’t have time, or aren’t crafty, you can buy some unique personalized garden markers from the homemade section on Amazon or from Etsy. Here are jut a few ideas I found for you.
