The indoor gardeners gift guide

Winter is so hard for gardeners! All we want to do is be out in the sunshine, digging in the dirt and planting things. Sadly, the ground is frozen and there are months to go before we plant again. *sigh* It feels like winter will never end! (am I being too dramatic here? lol)

I've found that most gardeners turn to indoor gardening in winter. Whether it be decorative houseplants or growing herbs, our need to dig in the dirt and make things grow cannot be stopped by a little snow! I think that is part of why succulents have enjoyed such popularity lately. 

indoor gardeners gift guide

Personally I have just about every holiday plant you can get. From Amaryllis to poinsettias and everything in between, I have them all! So it makes perfect sense that I would have (or want) all kinds of great new gardening gadgets for Christmas. Since nobody wants to have to wait for months to use their new gifts, this year I'm asking for all indoor gardening accessories. Maybe that will help me beat the 'no garden' blues that come with the onset of cold weather!

The indoor gardeners gift guide:

Gardeners gifts


Complete terrarium kit: This terrarium kit comes with almost everything you need for a terrarium. (you can add small succulents if you'd like) Gravel, activated charcoal, soil, decorative rocks and moss are included along with the glass globe size that you choose. Prices range from $10.95-$34.95 depending on which size you choose. Pick up a succulent or air plant for a few dollars to make it complete. (Lowe's has a great selection right now!)

Tea garden starter set: Includes everything you need to grow 4 herbal tea plants. Chamomile, mint, lemon balm and catnip. Includes instruction book, 4 seed packets, 4 biodegradable planters, 4 soil discs & 4 plant markers.  $21.99

Glass plant mister: This glass and brass plant mister is perfect for misting plants that like high humidity like rosemary. I love the clear glass bottle for the water. Comes in several colors of brass finish. I particularly like the matte gold, but the chrome is lovely too! $9.40-$12.90 plus shipping. Price depends on color.

plant lovers gifts

Stainless steel watering can: Perfect for watering indoor plants. Holds 32oz of water. Very modern and classy looking plus the long, thin spout lets you get in close to the roots instead of drenching the whole plant. $26.80 

PlantGrow LED light kit indoor herb garden with timer: Indoor planter and light set to grow herbs indoors. Fits 3 small plants. light stays on for 12 hours then the timer turns it off for 8. $38.59

Indoor plant care garden tool set: I have had this set for years and I just love it! It has a little canvas bag that holds small tools and a plant sprayer. These tools are small....like, window plant size. They work well though and they're great for caring for smaller indoor plants. I also use them when starting seeds. $15.95

Gifts for gardeners

LED plant grow light: If you don't have a window with great light, you can use a grow light instead. I have this small single plant light and love the fact that it has a clamp that I can attach it anywhere. Grow lights make it much easier to garden indoors when there's just not enough hours of sunlight in the day. $15.99 There's also a triple head LED grow lamp for $29.99 which would be better for multiple plants.

7 Pocket vertical garden wall planter: This would be amazing for someone who wants to grow their own lettuce indoors! This is basically a row of hanging plant pockets. Simply mount on the wall in bright light, fill each pocket with soil and seeds and water as needed. $12.99

Gardening gifts

10 Piece metal hanging flower pot set: I have had this plant pot set for 2 years now and they are still in great shape (even though I accidentally left a few outside most of last winter!) These are great because not only do they have curved handles to easily hang them from any rod or railing, but with 10 different colors they match every room. $9.99

The Garden Journal, Planner and Log Book: A book of garden forms and checklists to fill out with your past gardening experiences and plan for next years garden is just the thing to get a gardener through the long winter! $13.97


Now I know I can't speak for ALL gardeners ... but most of those items are on my wish list this year! What are you hoping for?

  3. What an awesome gift guide for gardeners! I can see how a lot of this would be so appealing to someone itching to get their hands in the dirty if you live in cold climes. It would be fun to try the terrarium kit, and the other items are interesting too.
