Christmas gifts for gardeners

Christmas gifts for gardenersChristmas is rapidly approaching and if you’re still searching for that perfect present why not wow your gardening friends and family with a gift that they’ll really appreciate.

Here are our top picks for Christmas gifts for gardeners:

Tools

New tools thrill every gardener. One of the gifts that all gardeners will love, and always have space for in the shed, is a good pair of secateurs or shears. They will last for years and be the number one go-to tool for many jobs around the garden.

Stainless steel spades and forks, pruners and loppers are all going to make the task in hand an awful lot easier and delight the recipient.

An Electric Propagator is a must for gardeners looking to raise their own plants from seeds or cuttings. A propagator creates a warm, damp atmosphere in which seeds and cuttings will thrive, ensuring a greater rate of germination. Henry Street stocks a wide range of electric propagators so choose the one best suited to your needs.

A great gift for gardeners who do a lot of potting or like to tinker around a lot with seeds is a potting bench. They can then work comfortably at the right height and keep their shed or greenhouse organised and tidy. 

Clothing

Every gardener we know needs a good pair of gardening gloves. Look for ones with reinforced fingers.

Or how about a tool belt with pockets so that all kinds of bits and piece can be kept close to hand when pottering around the garden. 

Plants

Of course all gardeners love plants and you can use your creativity here – Pots of herbs for a sunny windowsill or a potted fruit tree will be welcomed by gardener and cook alike. 

Education

Why not give the gift of education? A subscription to a gardening magazine would be much appreciated. Or a good gardening book is a must have for new and experienced gardeners.

Accessories.

Many gardeners like to add art and accents to their gardens. Decorative balls, sundials and sculptures all jazz up garden beds. Solar lights or a beautiful piece of garden art can always find a spot in a treasured garden.

New pots, large or small are a useful and attractive gift whilst a garden bench would offer a spot to sit and enjoy the beauty of the garden.

For those tuned into the temperamental British weather a weather station, wind or rain gauge is a great gift idea.

Treat your loved one to year-round outdoor warmth, with a chiminea or firepit. They can then entertain, chill out and generally enjoy being outside during the day, into the night, through summer and into winter.

Or for inside the house a garden themed piece of art, picture or sculpture is a lovely statement of their hobby. Keep an open mind and let your imagination run wild. 

Membership Cards and Vouchers

Consider giving a gardener vouchers to a favourite seed company that they use, their local nursery or National Garden Gift tokens accepted at over 2,000 leading garden centres, shops and nurseries across the UK.  They can have the pleasure of selecting the seeds or tools they need.

For those who love to visit beautiful gardens why not buy a National Trust card? National Trust look after the greatest collection of historic gardens and garden plants under single ownership in Europe, if not the world. They encompass more than 500 years of history and a vast range of garden styles and fashions. 

Wildlife

Many who garden like to welcome wildlife to their outdoor space. A new bird feeder or table with food would be a great gift. Lure insect eating birds with a place to live and gift a bird box for mounting to a tree or fence. A bird bath draws a variety of birds and offers many hours of entertainment. A wildlife book to identify the garden visitors is also a thoughtful gift.
