Gardening Gifts for Women
We always look for items that are either sustainably made, will help you do something good for the planet, or are long-lasting. And we try to leave plastic out of the equation when possible.
Helpful Gardening Supplies
Most seasoned gardeners don’t fall for popular new gadgets. They’ve probably learned their lesson with cheap growing lights and plastic tools that break after one season of being exposed to the elements.
These great gift ideas are perfect for beginners and those who have been planting and growing long enough to rely on tried and true methods.
Growing food or having beautiful flowers is nearly impossible without a great set of pruning tools. And it’s important to keep them clean and disinfected so you don’t transfer any disease from plant to plant. Also, they’re kind of easy to lose in the grass. So, it’s helpful to have more than one set.
These 8″ titanium shears are sturdy and long lasting. The pruners do most of the work which means your hand doesn’t get as tired.
Garden markers are a perfect gardening gift for anyone who plants seeds and tends to forget where they planted what! This set comes with an oil-based paint marker to customize the signs to her own garden goodies.
I’ve used grid paper to make maps, but I rarely carry the papers outside with me. And when I take photos with my phone and mark them up with my garden plans, it just turns into more digital clutter I can’t find when I need it. These have been super useful. Plus they’ve lasted through three seasons so far and still look great.
Garden Harvest Basket
I wonder if my neighbors ever saw me trying to hold giant Meyer lemons in my hands before I dedicated a basket to the task. Help her avoid being a #gardenfail sensation by gifting her an eco friendly basket. It’s a gift she likely won’t buy for herself, but would LOVE to have.
This small eco garden basket is perfect for harvesting and is beautifully handmade with cedar. It’s lightweight, water resistant, and can hold a variety of garden harvests.
Seed Saving Kit
A seed saving kit is something I never knew I needed. But it’s on my gift list this year! I can’t even recall how many times I’ve gathered seeds without properly labeling them. Planting the wrong thing can cause space or non-compatibility issues in the garden.
This one’s great because it is plastic free. The containers are made from recycled steel and the bags are made from wood pulp. It also includes directions for collecting and saving seeds.
Bulb or Seed Planters
Natural wood garden dibblers are useful for planting seeds or bulbs at the correct depth in the soil. This garden gift is highly recommended for those who like to plant their garden from seed. Once they use it, they’ll never know how they lived without it!
A large gift like a potting bench isn’t for just anyone, but if you know your recipient has the space, it makes a great addition to their hobby. She can customize it for her own garden and it offers plenty of storage area. The work tabletop slides open to reveal a dry sink. Or close it to keep tools safely covered when not in use.
Gardening Gloves for Women
Gardening gloves are essential for all gardeners, whether beginner or experienced.
Bee Gardening Gloves

Long cuff gardening gloves will protect hands and forearms from irritating plants or thorns. These women’s gardening gloves have really nice design options and are washable. They’re sized just right with an adjustable wrist strap and are soft yet sturdy.
They may look like part of a Halloween costume, but these claw gloves are really useful for breaking up the dirt and clearing out weeds, leaves, pine needles, and other stuff from flower or vegetable garden beds. Users also report they make a great back scratcher, too!
Gardener’s Hand Care Set
After long hours of gardening even with gloves, our hands tend to need some care too. This organic gardener’s hand care set includes a natural brush to scrub hands and clean under fingernails. It also comes with healing balm, cuticle cream, and a natural gently exfoliating soap. Plus, it comes in eco-packaging! Find a similar hand care set on Amazon here.

Other Helpful Gardening Gift Ideas
When it comes to giving gardening presents, it can be hard to know what to get the gardener who seems to have it all. These less common gardening gifts should spark some imagination!
Drawing Salve Stick
There are so many benefits to being out in nature, but bugs are my least favorite part. Especially in the summer, she’s bound to come across a mosquito or stinging critter. Earthley’s black drawing salve stick uses charcoal and clay to ‘trap’ the toxins being drawn out of skin, including oil from poison ivy or toxins from stings.
I’ve also used black drawing salve on splinters. Apply the salve and cover with a bandaid overnight. Sometimes the splinter is stuck to the bandaid by the next morning. And if not, it is usually easier to work with the skin to remove it.
This beautiful handmade harvest apron is made out of cotton and has extra large pockets to bring all the garden goodness inside to use. Made of 100% cotton fabric and washable, this garden gift is a perfect mix of functional and fashionable.
Butterflies are pollinators, and this butterfly puddler dish is a pretty way to make sure butterflies in the garden are getting the nutrients they need. This dish is a nice addition to a garden, and makes a unique garden gift that brings some beauty and pollination to the yard!
Garden sleeves are perfect for those who would appreciate full arm coverage while gardening. Personally, I have really sensitive skin, so I like to have my arms covered. These are lightweight, protective, useful, and cute! They are 100% cotton and can help keep ticks and mosquitos away too.
Gardening clogs are a popular and comfortable choice amongst gardeners. They’re easy to step in and out of, warm for chilly mornings but not too hot for sunny weather, and waterproof. These clogs from Western Chief are a perfect gardening gift for an enthusiast of any age.
I love these Muck boots that can be folded either up or down depending on the weather and how muddy the season is. They are 100% waterproof, versatile, and work for almost any region.
Last, but not least, we cannot ignore that during the winter months, many of us can’t garden fruitfully. However, it is a great time for garden planning!
