Do you have a gardener on your Christmas shopping list this year? Then you need to keep reading to discover some great ideas for stocking stuffers for gardeners.
If you have a gardener on your holiday shopping list this year, why not put together a special gardening-themed stocking for them? As a gardener myself, I know that I would love to receive gardening stocking stuffers. In the middle of the dreary winter, it can be fun to dream of next year’s garden.
From gardening tools and gadgets to decorative accents, there are tons of little gifts that would be perfect for anyone with a green thumb. You could even include seed packets for next year’s garden. The possibilities are endless!
Keep reading for some of the best ideas for what to include in a Christmas stocking for a gardener.
Christmas Tree Growing Kit
How fun would it be for your favorite gardener to grow their own Christmas tree? This Christmas Tree Growing Kit from Norway Spruce is the perfect addition to any gardener’s Christmas stocking.
The kit includes instructions, seeds, and more – everything you need to get started. Plus there is a 100% guarantee that the tree will grow, so you can give it as a gift with confidence.
Christmas Ornaments for Gardeners
There may not be much gardening going on around Christmas time, but a gardening themed Christmas ornament will still be much loved by any gardener. Every time they put the ornament on the Christmas tree, they will be reminded of sunny days and the scent of freshly turned soil.
Christmas ornaments make great gift toppers!
Skincare for Gardeners
An occupational hazard of having green thumbs can be dry skin and dirt under your fingernails. Why not add a few little skincare goodies as stocking stuffers so that your favorite gardener can pamper their skin after they are done playing in the soil?
Seed Starting Helpers
Most gardeners like to start their own seeds so they can grow varieties that they won’t find in their local nurseries. However, seed starting supplies can get expensive! That’s why I love my PotMaker and Soil Block Makers. They would make a great stocking stuffer for any gardener!
The PotMaker helps you form newspaper into sturdy little pots that can be used to start seeds. Then when weather conditions are right, you stick the whole newspaper pot right in the ground. The newspaper will break down over time and help nourish the soil.
Soil Block Makers allow you to make little cubes of soil that are used to start seeds. Although I was skeptical at first, the soil cubes are surprisingly sturdy and hold together well. I can’t imagine seed starting without mine. The smaller one makes 3/4 inch blocks, which is great for tiny seeds like lettuces. I use the medium sized one for nearly everything else.
Lots of gardeners also have houseplants to take care of and water. Help make their life a little easier by adding one of these self-watering accessories to their Christmas stocking this year. These handy little tools allow plants to go longer between watering.
Find out what your favorite gardener likes to grow. Some gardeners like to grow only flowers, some focus on vegetables. Find out what kinds of plants they like to grow so you can tailor your gift accordingly.
Tracking rainfall is very important to a gardener. Plants can’t grow without enough moisture, after all. So a decorative rain gauge is a wonderful stocking stuffer idea. Fun to look at and functional too!
While definitely not as glamorous as some of the other ideas, small tools and gloves make great stocking stuffers for gardeners too. After all these are all necessary for gardening, and will be appreciated just as much.
Seeds Make Great Gardening Stocking Stuffers
Help Them Get a Jump Start on Next Year’s Garden! What gardener wouldn’t appreciate a few packs of flower or vegetable seeds so they can start some of their garden plants indoors while they are stuck indoors during the long winter? Garden seeds are inexpensive, so adding a couple of packets is a great way to finish filling the stocking.
