I’m sure most of you know someone a family member or a friend that is nearly impossible to buy a gift for, it seems as if they already have everything. You want to buy them something special, but you just can’t figure out what that perfect gift might be. Well, if that person is a gardener (or enjoys gardens) then we’ve got some suggestions. Lewis Ginter’s Garden Shop is overflowing with gifts for every person and occasion in your life. Drumroll….. Here are our top 5 gardening gifts.

Painted squirrel bird house, with entrance hole in belly.

This Gord-O squirrel birdhouse ($42) is just one of many designs in the series. Come see them all!

3. A Birdhouse

If your loved one has everything for his garden, perhaps the only thing that is missing is birds!  With many gardeners removing dead trees or snags immediately due to safety reasons or homeowners association rules, shelter for birds is in short supply. It’s hard to believe that leaving a dead tree can provide more wildlife habitat than a live tree can, but it’s true.  Since housing for these magnificent flying creatures is in short supply, why not give a gift that both the birds and your loved-one can enjoy?  This cute Gord-O Birdhouse will be a wonderful addition to any garden and the birds will go nuts for it!  If you aren’t a fan of squirrels, no worries, this birdhouse comes in many different designs as well.

Colorful gardening set for kids with tools, markers, bag, gloves, etc.

Your young gardening friends will love this Little Pals gardening kit ($36.95).

4.  Children’s Gardening Kit

Little Pals Junior garden kits will delight your wee gardener! What could be more precious than encouraging the love of nature and gardening in a small child? After all, gardening teaches more than just patience, appreciation and the rewards of what you sow.  Do you know a child that is enthusiastic about being outdoors or that is always wanting to come help in the garden? These adorable kid-sized kits are perfect for little hands. The kit comes complete with everything a beginner gardener would need, including gloves and plant markers. This will surely make a child feel important in the garden. Recommended for children ages 3 to 10.

Creative Energy Candle for sale in the Garden Shop one of many great gardening gifts

Creative Energy candles start at $11.95 and come in a wide variety of all natural fragrances.

5. Light

Creative Energy Candles: I am really excited about this gift and would love to see this one under the tree (hint, hint!). If you know someone who loves scented candles but you want to make sure they are burning something safe this is the one to buy.  It’s not fun to think about but some candles really aren’t good for you and can let off toxins in your home.  Creative Energy Candles are different, they are made with soybean wax, organic coconut oil, and essential oils so you won’t have to worry about a thing. There are so many scents to choose from, you’ll just have to come to smell them all for yourself.  You might be wondering how this is a gift for a gardener. Well, these candles have an extra benefit, you can also use the wax as a lotion!
