Most of us have a gardener in our lives, and they may or may not feel like planting that perfect plant this time of year. So here are a few gift ideas for gardeners from The Good Earth Garden Center — some enhance gardens, some pamper gardeners and some make gardening easier. But some just let them know you understand and appreciate how much their work means to them and the impact it has on all who experience it.
1. Cross-back apron with pockets. These aprons are made of thick and durable fabric with large pockets useful for tools and other gardening must-haves. The aprons also have a perfect location for embroidering a name or hobby garden name. One other reason they top this list: They represent classic garden fashion.
2. Colorful gardening tools. One of the many hazards of gardening is losing tools. They were always "just right there." Flora Brite snips are easy to spot with their fluorescent handles, and high quality, hardened stainless steel blades make them sturdy.
3. Kneelo knee pads. All knee pads protect and cushion knees. Sounds simple, right? Nope. There are other cushions out there, but they don’t feature super cushiony memory foam covered with neoprene like Kneelo pads do.
4. Caren brand lotions and soaps. Every product in the Caren line is sublime and available in an immense range of scents from sunny, citrus notes to green grass, musk, sandalwood and tree oak moss. Caren products feature a signature aloe vera base, which is then enriched with natural botanicals, vital antioxidants and rich vitamins to provide a healthy glow. Free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, gluten and GMOs, these products are made in the U.S. and placed in glass or sugarcane tubes.
5. Pooleys. These fully glazed, colorful art vases are perfect for showcasing cut flowers and take the guesswork out of arranging them. From office desks to windowsills, Pooleys add creative interest to any space.
6. Handmade bells, chimes, rain chains and mobiles. These are colorful, unique, eye-catching decor for any garden, patio or indoor space.
7. Mr. Bird ornaments and houses. Choose from a variety of handcrafted bird seed holiday gifts such as wreaths, decorative bird houses, ornaments and more. For the bird lover, bird watcher or just about anyone, watching birds go crazy over these will bring a smile to everyone's face.
8. Garden-themed ornaments and mugs. Garden lovers, this is for you. Decorate your tree with ornaments and drink from mugs that remind you of your happy place this Christmas.
9. Fair trade cocoa leaf lamps. These lamps are made from eco-friendly materials and are of the highest quality. Each lamp is one of a kind, making them a great addition to any room, and they’re sure to be conversation starters.
10. Interesting containers. The perfect plant deserves the perfect planter. From intriguing faces to hand-blown glass terrarium bowls on teak stands, choose from a large selection of planting containers. Be sure to check out The Original PotHead planters, which are sure to add interest to any space. Every piece is a work of art, creatively designed and handcrafted.
