6 genuinely useful Christmas gifts for gardeners
Searching for a great Christmas present for a gardener?
Here’s our top suggestions for gifts that any gardener would love to unwrap and will be genuinely useful for the coming year.
1. A good quality spade
Digging is an essential part of gardening, so it pays to invest in some decent kit to help make it a more comfortable experience. Kent & Stowe do a range of spades with 10 year guarantees for carbon steel and 15 years for stainless steel. Plus they also do a Garden Life range which is great for younger gardeners, those suffering with mobility and arthritic issues, or those who simply prefer a lighter spade.
2. National Gardening Gift Vouchers
A great choice for any gardener, National Garden Gift vouchers are redeemable at over 2,000 garden centres and garden retail outlets across the UK and Channel Islands.
Enter our festive competition for a chance to win £25 worth of vouchers.
3. Indoor plants
Houseplants are super-trendy again and make fantastic gifts. Orchids, Succulents, Cacti and Bonsai trees are all great choices.
**Don’t forget to include a bottle of indoor plant food with your present to help your recipient keep the plant healthy and happy for years to come**
4. A subscription to a gardening magazine
A present that will get you remembered for the whole year! An annual subscription to a gardening magazine will give them inspiration and practical advice on how to keep their gardening looking great from January to December.
5. A bird feeder
Give them a new hobby this Christmas! The Peckish Winter Warmer Easy Feeder is a great stocking filler or Secret Santa present. It is a reusable feeder that has bird seed already included. Simply unwrap and hang in a tree!
