When to Give Gifts to Gardeners

What Holidays do You Give Your Favorite Gardener a Gift?

First off, let’s get something straight: Any time is the right time to give a gardener a gift!! We are loving, accepting people with an affinity for fun stuff. But seriously, I asked myself a question the other day during the Mother’s day gift run, and thought about what days/occasions are perfect for garden gift giving. So, here is a list:

Holidays

New Years – what better way to start off the year in anticipation of a whole new gardening season in spring. Great garden gifts here: Hori Hori, tool maintenance kit, new garden tool set, garden scissors, etc.

Groundhog Day – Not your traditional, but a cute idea to give your favorite gardener a gift on this day.

Valentine’s Day – What better day to adorn your sweetheart than with a gardening gift they will cherish for years.

St. Patrick’s Day – in our Celtic tradition, the green holiday is perfect for garden themed gift giving.

Easter – Our favorite holiday, the harbinger of spring blooms, is a time to celebrate all that is beautiful in the garden.

Mother’s Day – if your Mom loves gardening, then gift giving on this special day should always include a garden gift.

Earth Day – need we say more. Sustainable, earth loving gardening gifts are always a big hit on this day, even if it is just a small thought.

Father’s Day – What father wouldn’t love a Hori Hori Garden Knife? There are a ton of great gardening gifts for men that will please any father on this day.

July 4th – going to a party on the 4th? A gardening gift is great for any host or hostess, and can bring great joy on this occasion.

Halloween – Pumpkins, gourds and others are the harbingers of fall. And fall bulb planting gifts, like a dibber/dibble, can be a great gardening gift.

Thanksgiving – By thanksgiving, gardeners are in planning mode for winter and spring, and a journal or planner is a great gift for gardeners.

Christmas – Garden gifts bring light to the dark ages of winter, and stocking stuffers are a great way to bring a smile to any gardener.
