The Lavender gift box comes from the Apothecary Barn, it’s a lovely collection of 100% natural soaps and skincare products. Perfect for gardeners to use after a busy day potting, growing and weeding. Gentle on your skin and fantastic fragrances. Pamper yourself or gift to the gardeners who you know, they will absolutely love to receive this box of goodies.
Or choose the Soap Box Set which includes 6 mini soaps with divine, flowersome (I think I just made that word up) fragrances such as sweet orange and geranium, and eucalyptus and sage.

Garden Themed Jewellery
How pretty is this? A charming gift for lady gardeners, this charm bracelet features flowers, a trowel and tiny watering can. It’s delightful. Silver charm bracelet and necklaces available with many other accessories and charms to add and collect.
At MitoukaBijou you will find a small range of exquisite silver jewelry like these calla lily earrings. They are very dainty and pretty, perfect for those gardeners who love a personal piece of jewelry.
Personalised Gifts For Gardeners
To my mind nothing beats good quality garden tools, to have them engraved for you is something rather special and, if there is more than one gardener or helper you can make sure you are using your own tools.
This engraved gift set includes personalised hand fork and trowel, along with garden string and plant labels all packaged in a pretty presentation basket. It’s an ideal gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries and many more special occasions.
Personalised copper plated secateurs, I love these. The style and quality are reminiscent of the old-fashioned garden tools. The wooden handles are tactile and will age beautifully. Kindlecone have a wide selection of quality copper plated garden tools such as trowels and forks, along with many other household items.
Strong protective gardening gauntlets make a useful gift for garden lovers, have them monogrammed to turn a simple gift into one that is really quite special.
If you’re looking for gardening gloves for someone these denim and leather safety gauntlets fit the bill perfectly.
How about a personalised gardening tool and apron gift set. This useful gift has several lovely elements, a hard wearing canvas apron with large pockets very handy for carrying string, clips, labels and small tools when in the garden. It is personalised with the name or logo of choice. The tools are made from solid copper with wooden handles and it all comes with a handy matching bag to store it in.
Seeds and Plants Gifts For Gardeners
It’s not easy at the moment to find seeds and plants as many garden centres are closed but here on Etsy I have discovered to my delight many plants and seed collections. Whether you’re searching for sumptuous succulents or wonderful wildlife seed mats and seed bombs for bees you are sure to find something to suit you here.
The GowerFlower company has a variety of seed collections, they are based, as the name suggests, in Wales, they specialise in UK native seeds for bees, pollinators and other beneficial insects.
Try them for wildflower seeds to grow and nurture a beautiful spring wildflower garden. Bee bombs are a great way of developing a wildlife friendly garden or allotment. A truly environmentally friendly gift for gardeners.
