What is good to gift a gardener?

First things first, it's good to think about a few features before you dive straight in and buy plants they don't want or watering can they already have. Here's what we suggest:

Indoor or outdoor garden: This will affect a few things on your gifting list. If you have an indoor gardener, think about the kind of plants or even herbs that will survive inside as well as indoor accessories. Outside gardeners have a far bigger range to deal with, everything from furniture to lights and a wide selection of plants and flowers you can gift.

Luxury or efficiency: If the gardener you're gifting is into their garden design trends and high-quality furniture, they might appreciate a gift that is more high-end or will suit their exterior theme. On the other hand, if they are way more into the plant types and growth of their garden, then they may appreciate more functional gifts like high-quality secateurs.

What do they already have? This will be a big influence on what you can buy as a gift. If they already have lots of lilies hanging around, chances are they don't need anymore. You can always ask them what kind of plants they prefer, which will give a good insight into what gift they'll appreciate.
