Season’s greetings, garden lovers! For the past several years as we have approached the holidays, it has been our tradition to gather up some great gardening and gardener-friendly gift ideas. While we know that what every gardener would love is more plants, they can be in short supply in the winter months! Indoor gardening is a wonderful way to keep things green through the off-season, but there are also a number of tools (such as pruners), other necessary equipment (such as garden boots), and decorations that can make getting back to gardening all the more merry. A rain gauge, a chipper, or a new hydroponic sprayer may be just the thing to help the gardener in your life to stay on top of garden tasks.
Is your gardener obsessed with pollinators? Consider a butterfly house for that favorite garden visitor. And don’t forget that those gardeners work hard, so anything that can pamper them—or their tired hands—a little bit is always welcome. Gift boxes make giving easy with collections of items any gardener would love. See below for some additional great gift ideas.
Do you have your own garden-gift wishes for this holiday season? Make sure to comment at the bottom of this page to give your family a little hint of what you might like from Santa.

RHS Ergo DeadHeader
A unique, wearable pruner, these Royal Horticultural
Society–endorsed ergonomic deadheading snips offer outstanding comfort, grip, and controllability. The index finger loop substantially improves control and stability, while the ergonomically shaped handle nestles comfortably in the palm of the hand.

The high-quality, high-carbon-steel, scissor-action blades will keep their edge over prolonged use.
Sophie Conran Bypass Pruner
Combining designer flair with practicality, this Sophie
Conran for Burgon & Ball garden hand pruner is a delight to use. Smaller and lighter than many, it offers excellent control and comfort. The handle, head, and blade are crafted from a single piece of stainless steel, giving strength as well as rust resistance. This garden pruner easily cuts stems up to 3⁄4 inch in diameter, with a bypass action for making clean, healthy cuts on green growth.
Easy-to-Spot Tools (and Gloves)
Here’s a bright idea to put an end to lost garden tools. With neon-bright handles in yellow or pink, these RHS-endorsed fluorescent cutting tools will never be left behind!
