Looking for a great gift for a gardener? Need gift ideas for your gardening friends? Want some unique gardening gift ideas for the holidays or Christms? Read on.

A gardener is a gift. If you have a gardener in your family or your immediate social circle, count your blessings. Give a gardener a gift. These are the people who work diligently in their yards to help make our surrounding landscapes beautiful.

They give to us every day by the work of their hands and the resulting lush landscape that we so often take for granted. They are deserving of our thanks and the best gifts for gardeners we can find.

Gardeners Need Love -- and Gifts, Too

Find unique garden gifts

Maybe you haven't given much thought to what gardeners do. They get their hands dirty. They work on their knees, their hands are often calloused. The sun beats down on them, the cold whips and nips them. Still, they do what they do because they have a passion for the richness of nature and the beauty that results from their efforts. 

Gardeners are happy to recieve the gardening gifts that are so unique to their craft. Anything that makes their life easier is a blessing. If you're not sure what to get your favorite gardner, here are a few suggestions.

There are as many gardeners as there are gardens. Some love the country cottage style, others wade into the water gardens, still others admire and take on the work of a Japanese garden. Whatever their inclinations, there are plenty of gardening tools, toys, and gifts to keep a gardener happy.

That giant's head is fun:). An an appreciation gift basket for a gardener is a great idea as gardeners, like anyone with a hobby, often spend money on things :)

That heavy lifting tool looks handy. My sister loves gardening (she grows most of her own vegetables) - saw a few items she'd like!

I am so glad everyone is enjoying the page and liking the gardening gift choices. This was a fun page to create.

I agree whole-heartedly with your first sentence, "A gardener is a gift". My husband is the gardener, and I get the benefits of his work. A great gift for him would be the potlifter tool!

Nice article! My mother-in-law has a really green thumb. I always take a garden tour when I visit her. She can pack more plants into a small space.

Thom, I know what you mean. I love the giant head. He's so cool.

WordCustard, Thanks so much. I sort of relied on what I would like to choose the gifts. I've had many a sore knee and aching back but I love gardening. Don't do it as much as I once did.

Thom on 06/10/2011

I love the giant head. I need to go figure out how to make that for my garden.

WordCustard on 06/10/2011

A beautiful selection of gifts! Some good ideas here for when you need to buy something for a gardener but just don't know what.
