What Your Favorite Beginner Gardener Wants for Christmas

garden gift ideas


I completely understand your dilemma.

My decorating, shopping and baking tasks aren’t done either.

Actually, I just started.

I guess that makes me an expert on seeking out the perfect last-minute gifts for gardeners–at the very last-minute. The good news is I found many of these items on Amazon–the specialists in last-minute gift getting. 

I got you cover, friend. From one late shopper to another, you’re secret’s safe with me.

I Put Myself Your Gift-Getter’s Shoes

But, enough about us. Let’s talk about your favorite beginner garden and what the want for Christmas. This gift guide might be late in the making, but, it’s not late!  I cracked a sweat and broke a nail or two while searching high-and-low for things I would have appreciated receiving when I was a beginner gardener. 

I searched carefully.

I didn’t rush.

I browsed.

I thought.


And reconsidered.

I put myself in the shoes of the gift-getter and the gift-giver.

Take a  look at what I found. I think you’ll love it.
