Christmas Gift Ideas for Gardeners

(This post contains affiliate links.)

I’d love to say my Christmas shopping is done, but it’s not.

I love to feel organized and on top of things. Some areas of my life are like that. Christmas shopping … not so much. I’m still shopping for Christmas.

If anyone else still needs a couple – or many – Christmas gift ideas for those on your list who love to garden, cook, bake, bird watch, and such, this list is for YOU.

If you have some ideas that would go perfect with this list, chime in with your comments. Comments make bloggers happy. :)

So many of these gift ideas are DIY items.

Pallet/Crate Herb Garden (on Pinterest). This would be an incredibly easy gift to make that would be so neat! Make a few modifications to a wooden crate/pallet; slap some cheery yellow paint on it; stencil in herb names (optional); add a few planted herbs (optional); and you’ve handed someone both a garden and a yard beauty.

Tea Kettle Planter (Funky Junk Interiors). When I came across this tea kettle planter, I just HAD to ask if I could use this photo. God has truly gifted Donna with amazing creativity. She hunts for junk, and then turns it into beauty.


Garden-in-a-Jar (my post at Frugal Granola).

Heirloom Seeds. Be sure to visit Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds Co. for your vegetable and flower seed needs. It’s a great family owned business, providing quality heirloom seeds for your gardening needs.

Miniature Terrariums (on Pinterest). These are adorable. Hardly a complete gift, but they’d make great stocking stuffers.

School Teacher Planter (Just Imagine). Look at image 31 of 38 for the planter.

Sweet Rice Mason Jar (my post at Frugal Granola).

Food for the Soul Mason Jar (my post at Frugal Granola). This is a great way to give an edible gift with spiritual meaning. Each color has a particular meaning in the plan of salvation.

DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice (DIY Natural). I don’t care what time of year it is, pumpkin flavor goodies are always delicious! :)

Homemade Peppermint Bark (Five Little Homesteaders). Okay. It’s not really a gardening idea, but I just love peppermint bark. :)

  • Thanks for featuring my Ornaments!

  • Wonderful collection. There are so many great ideas here!

  • This is an awesome post on gifts and DIYs! I love several and will do them next year.
    I just stopping in to give a warm greeting and wish you a “Happy New Year”, friend! I greatly value your insights and like-mindedness.
    I have given a lot of thought as to how I will use my time this year, and I will be cutting way back on visiting blogs. BUT, I thought I would share this: if you find a moment to visit and a comment, I will do my best to always return the favor. I desire to go deeper, not broader, and I thought of you :)

      Thanks, Jacqueline. You’ve always been so good about stopping by, reading a post, and commenting. I so appreciate it. However, I totally understand the need to re-evaluate and make adjustments. I’m sure we’ll continue to see each other in the virtual world at whatever frequency works out. :)

      Happy New Year!!
