The Crafty Gardener likes growing a garden and sharing the bounty. Crafty gardeners prefer homemade, rustic and artisan styles, giving you, the gift giver, abundant choices for nature-themed gifts.
Gift Ideas for a crafty gardener
1. Raised garden bed
What dyed-in-the-wool gardener wouldn’t love raised garden beds? Give the gift of easy, productive gardens with a raised garden bed kit. From growing organic greens in spring to prize-winning tomatoes in summer and root vegetables in fall, a new raised garden bed will be appreciated all year long.
2. Terrific terrariums
Give decorative terrariums to gardening friends this year. This is one of the easiest ways to bring a bit of green life into interior spaces. Terrariums come in many shapes and styles, like the Hampton Bay metal and glass terrarium above.
Using just a handful of materials, you can also create a terrarium that you can hang in a bright corner or strategically place on a table.
You can give your Crafty Gardener a houseplant to bring the garden inside during winter. Green foliage alone is a mood-lifter. Some added benefits are that houseplants scrub the air clean, add moisture to dry air and provide beautiful greenery even on the coldest days of winter.
For example, did you know that hard-working houseplants absorb up to 87 percent of volatile organic compounds found in ordinary household items such as paint, carpet and ink? Many houseplants, including peace lilies, ferns and orchids, are easy to grow and will last for years with the proper care.
4. Teaching tools
Crafty gardeners start early. Give little ones the right size tools they need to begin a garden. Tuck some vegetable seeds, like easy-to-grow carrots and radishes, in the bag, and a pair of kid sized gardening gloves for early season gardening.
5. Tools for grown-up gardeners
All gardeners appreciate new tools. Adding extras like garden seats and aprons makes the gift even sweeter. Check out the Apollo six-piece garden set with a stool, apron (pockets!) and hand tools, pictured above, or create your own set with favorite and recommended tools.
