65+ great gardening gift ideas

Our ultimate guide to the best gifts for every gardener.

Just as no two gardens are the same, neither are any two gardeners, so finding the perfect gift for them can be tricky.

To help steer you onto the right path, we’ve curated the ultimate list of gardening gift ideas.

We have last-minute flower deliveries (we’ve all been there) and seasonal suggestions for seeds and plants. There’s a wide range of personalised items, for that extra special touch, and indulgent luxury garden products. We’ve got ideas for wildlife gardeners and small gifts to save on space, as well as an inspiring selection of gardening books, from coffee-table botanical art to practical guides to help gardeners get growing.

For a practical gift, check out the tools section, which features our BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine Best Buys; after being rigorously tested by our experts, these are the gadgets and gizmos that came out on top. We even have a choice of clothes for gardeners, plus a selection of kids’ garden gifts to encourage the next generation of gardeners.
