The Garden Shops Top Picks- Christmas Gifts for Gardeners

gardening gifts

We have put together eight gift ideas for gardeners. We are gardeners ourselves and know what we love so we thought we'd help you out with this handy list!

1.The Garden Shop Gift Box Range.

We have carefully put together gift boxes with gardeners in mind, whether they are hardened gardeners or just starting out we think they will love them! We have a choice of 3; The Local Gift Box, The Pamper Gift Box and The Flower Press Gift Box. Each of our boxes has been hand picked and packed by us to ensure we bring you quality products. They come in a simple brown box, packed with recycled shredded paper, topped off with a green raffia ribbon. And what makes them that little bit more special is that they come with a plantable gift tag so your message to them can grow in to something beautiful. These are truly unique gifts for gardeners.

The Local Gift Box:

This includes a small sample pot of honey and wild flower seed from The Secret Garden Apiary, who are based just up the road from us. A wooden honey dipper and wooden plant labels with a small pencil. A pair of wool blend socks, and for cleaning up those hands after a day in the garden, a dual sided wooden nail brush and two 25g sample bars of soap from local soap makers The Dartmoor Soap Company.

The Pamper Gift Box:

This includes Nutscene Lemongrass and Jojoba hand cream, soap on a rope from local soap makers The Dartmoor Soap Company, a white cotton face cloth and a wooden dual sided nail brush.

The Flower Press Gift Box:

This includes a small traditional wooden flower press, wooden plant labels with a small pencil, coloured Nutscene jute twine and 3 packets of seed grown by us.

2. The Garden Shop Gift Vouchers

The Garden Shop gift vouchers are the perfect gift for gardeners as they can be spent in the shop on whatever they want from plants to soap or even a book! They can be purchased online (£10, £15 or £20) or in store for your chosen amount.

3.Nutscene Garden Lines.

These garden string lines are a practical and thoughtful gift for any gardener. We have two to choose from;

The first is a beautiful wooden garden line set ideal for the organised gardener. It makes the perfect addition to the potting shed ready for getting lawn edges straight and the veg patch looking organised. Its produced from FSC ash and comes with 13m of natural jute twine. It's a great gift for any keen gardener.

The second is a beautifully ornate cast iron garden line. Again, it is ideal for keeping the garden (be it the veg plot or the lawns edges) on the straight and narrow. It is powder coated to ensure it's long lasting and stays protected from all the elements the garden can throw at it. Certainly something that any gardener will treasure. It comes with 15m of natural jute twine too! The perfect gardening gift.

4. Beautiful Suncatchers

A small but thoughtful gift for the gardener in your life. These beautiful coloured resin suncatchers will brighten up any window and bring a smile to who ever sees them. We have a selection from British garden birds to sweet little flowers. A perfect gardening gift.

5. Lovely Local Devon Soap.

We have a selection of beautiful soaps from local company The Dartmoor Soap Company. They make a great gift for gardeners and non gardeners alike. We love their gardeners soap, its a great way to clean and nourish hands after working in the garden and it leaves them feeling fresh and new. Why not pair it up with Nutscene Geranium and Spearmint hand scrub.

6. Colourful Enamel Mugs.

Looking for a great practical gift for gardeners? How about a colourful enamel mug that can't get broken and will survive outside, perfect for taking to the allotment or keeping in the potting shed.

We have a choice of two, a fun green enamel mug saying 'Gardening is cheaper than therapy'....a sentiment that we certainly share!

Or a bright orange mug saying 'Head Gardener' for the gardener in your life. Either one if these two are great gifts for gardeners.

7. Seeds

We have great selection of seeds, and what gardener doesn't love seeds! You can choose from flower seeds, herb seeds and of course vegetable seeds. The seeds we sell are all sourced in Devon. The wildflower seed comes from The Secret Garden Apiary only a few miles away from us in Beaworthy and all of our other seeds come from Vital Seeds based near Buckfastleigh. All of their seeds are organic or ecologically produced. We love them and grow our own veg using their seed and it never fails to impress! The perfect gift for gardeners.

We have a selection of garden signs for inside and outside. If your feeling stuck for ideas they are a simple but great gift. We have a mix of wooden signs and also beautiful terracotta wall plaques which would be a lovely addition to any garden (or home). These make the perfect gifts for gardeners.
